    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to minimize its opportunities of penetrating the surface. Likewise, ensure that downspouts empty into the backyard rather than onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can permeate surface areas, causing cracks. Both should be fixed. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee premises, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, think about spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which lowers the melting point of ice and is considered efficient in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Plow carefully

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it does not scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surfaces to minimize its threat of capturing 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. Safeguard the edges

    Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly vulnerable, chipping under extreme weight. So make certain that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never park there throughout house remodeling jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

    Getting rid of discolorations caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable substances affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can penetrate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Usage non-clumping cat litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, biodegradable cleaners. Be sure to utilize a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface area.
