    Common Sense Tips for Maintaining Your Driveway

    Think about these 7 suggestions to assist you take care of your driveway:

    1. Avoid cracks

    For driveways, prevention means sealing concrete yearly and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from penetrating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can cause cracks by rising from underneath. The service is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

    2. Fill fractures

    If cracks or holes do appear, patch them immediately. Use a masonry chisel to remove loose materials and brush out the debris before applying a crack filler and patching substance. After the substance dries, seal the entire driveway Guaranteeing your driveway is smooth and level might also help in reducing tripping accidents when guests visit your home.

    3. Lessen water on the driveway.

    Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to offer a runoff area for snow and water to reduce its chances of permeating the surface. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard instead of onto the driveway.

    4. Don’t salt cement

    Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surfaces, triggering fractures. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to remove snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat litter to make surfaces less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface with sugar beet juice, which decreases the melting point of ice and is considered reliable in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.

    5. Rake thoroughly

    Raise the blade of your snow rake enough to guarantee it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for irregular surfaces to reduce its risk of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or eliminate snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.

    6. Safeguard the edges

    Think it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, chipping under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never park there during house renovation jobs.

    7. Clean your driveway

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