Think about these 7 suggestions to help you look after your driveway:
1. Avoid cracks
For driveways, prevention implies sealing concrete every year and sealing asphalt every couple of years to avoid water from permeating, freezing and cracking. Tree and shrub roots can trigger fractures by rising from below. The option is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.
2. Fill cracks
If fractures or holes do appear, patch them right away. Use a masonry sculpt to eliminate loose materials and brush out the debris before applying a crack filler and patching compound. After the compound dries, seal the entire driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level may also help in reducing tripping mishaps when guests visit your house.
3. Reduce water on the driveway.
Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to provide a runoff area for snow and water to reduce its chances of penetrating the surface. Also, guarantee that downspouts empty into the backyard instead of onto the driveway.
4. Do not salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing fractures. Both need to be repaired. Rather of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to eliminate 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 lowers the melting point of ice and is thought about effective in temperature levels as low at -20 ° F.
5. Plow thoroughly
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 irregular surface areas to reduce its threat of capturing on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or remove snow a few inches at a time while working your way earthward.
6. Protect the edges
Believe it or not, driveways aren’t developed for heavy trucks. Edges are particularly susceptible, cracking under excessive weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there during home renovation jobs.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing stains caused by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar substances impacts more than your drive’s appearance. 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 detergent and warm water. For older discolorations, try scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Be sure to use a regular scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.
