Think about these 7 tips to help you care for your driveway:
1. Avoid fractures
For driveways, prevention indicates sealing concrete annually and sealing asphalt every couple of years to prevent water from permeating, freezing and splitting. Tree and shrub roots can trigger cracks by rising from beneath. The solution is to get rid of trees near drives or have their roots trimmed away.

After the substance dries, seal the whole driveway Ensuring your driveway is smooth and level might likewise help reduce tripping accidents when visitors visit your home.
3. Minimize water on the driveway.
Clear a two to three-inch strip around the edges of the driveway to supply a runoff area for snow and water to minimize its chances of penetrating the surface area. Also, make sure that downspouts empty into the yard rather than onto the driveway.
4. Don’t salt cement
Cement salt and chemical de-icers can penetrate surface areas, triggering fractures. Both should be repaired. Instead of salting, utilize a snowblower or shovel to remove snow and use options like sand, coffee grounds, alfalfa meal or kitty litter to make surface areas less slippery. To melt ice, consider spraying the surface area with sugar beet juice, which reduces the melting point of ice and is thought about effective in temperatures as low at -20 ° F.
5. Rake thoroughly
Raise the blade of your snow plow enough to ensure it doesn’t scrape and damage the driveway surface area. If shoveling, use a plastic shovel for unequal surfaces to lower its danger of catching 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 method earthward.
6. Secure the edges
Believe it or not, driveways aren’t designed for heavy trucks. Edges are especially susceptible, cracking under extreme weight. So ensure that your car is parked far from the edges and that construction vehicles never park there throughout house remodeling jobs.
7. Clean your driveway
Removing spots triggered by motor oil, radiator fluid and similar compounds affects more than your drive’s appearance. Motor fluids can permeate as much as a quarter inch in concrete and can soften asphalt. Use non-clumping kitty litter to soak up fresh oil, followed by grease-cutting dishwashing cleaning agent and warm water. For older spots, attempt scrubbing the stain repeatedly with grease-cutting, eco-friendly cleaners. Be sure to utilize a routine scrub brush. A wire brush can damage the driveway’s surface.
