Think about these seven tips to help you look after your driveway:
1. Prevent fractures
For driveways, avoidance means sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and breaking. Tree and shrub roots can cause fractures by pushing up from underneath. The option is to eliminate trees near drives or have their roots cut away.

4. Don’t salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, causing cracks. Both should be repaired. Rather of salting, use a snowblower or shovel to get rid of snow and utilize alternatives like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or cat 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 temperatures as low at -20 ° F.
5. Plow carefully
Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to guarantee it does not scrape and harm the driveway surface area. If shoveling, utilize a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to reduce its risk of catching on the driveway. Then, either push snow to the side and shovel that off or get rid of 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 vulnerable, chipping under excessive weight. So make certain that your car is parked away from the edges which construction vehicles never ever park there during home improvement projects.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and comparable compounds impacts more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can permeate 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 cleaning agent and warm water. For older stains, attempt scrubbing the stain consistently with grease-cutting, naturally degradable cleaners. Make certain to use a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can harm the driveway’s surface area.
