    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, triggering fractures. Both must be repaired. Instead of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize options like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is thought about reliable in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Plow carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to reduce its threat of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a couple of inches at a time while working your method earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t created for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, breaking under extreme weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there during home improvement jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can permeate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older discolorations, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Make certain to utilize a regular scrub brush.
