    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Think about these 7 tips to help you care for your driveway:

After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may likewise help reduce tripping accidents when guests visit your home.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff location for snow and water to lower its opportunities of penetrating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the lawn instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surfaces, causing fractures. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is considered effective in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surface areas to decrease its risk 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 way earthward.

    6. Protect the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially vulnerable, breaking under excessive weight. So ensure that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never park there throughout house renovation tasks.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of discolorations triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s look. Motor fluids can penetrate approximately a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping kitty litter to absorb fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Make sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface.
