Cleaning your driveway before the snow starts to drop is vital to ensure it doesn’t get damaged during the winter. There are many things to look out for when cleaning your driveway, including cleaning dirt, leaves or oil stains.
Cleaning your driveway is actually fairly easy and does not require a lot of work. You will want to remove any dead leaves with a rake or a leaf blower and wash off any dirt or debris. To clean an asphalt driveway, mix together detergent and water, then make sure to grab a brush with coarse and stiff bristles. You will want to dip the brush into the water then and use all your power to scrub your driveway.
Once you have used the brush to clean your whole driveway fully, then you will want to inspect for any damages. Looking for any potholes or damages in your driveway is much easier once you have scrubbed off all of the dirt. You will have a better view of your surroundings and it will no longer be difficult to spot what needs to be fixed. Look for surface cracks, divots or bubbling; regularly inspecting and maintaining your driveway will ensure a longer lifespan. Hairline cracks that go unrepaired can expand and slowly turn into potholes, this means that you will have to spend more money on repaving your driveway.
There is so much to look out for once fall has arrived; these things should include dirt, debris and potholes. You are responsible for ensuring that your driveway is staying in good condition, which means making sure that it has been cleaned properly.
