Is your driveway made of concrete? If yes, then here, are a few maintenance tips that will help you in maintaining your driveway.
Clean And Re-Seal
To keep your driveway looking the best, all you need to do is clean it on a regular basis and keep it sealed. The appropriate time for cleaning and resealing your concrete driveway depends on the climatic condition and the number vehicle traffic it has received. Resealing of your concrete driveway should be carried out every two year.
Keep Away Stains
Your concrete driveway should not remain stained. A sealer protects the concrete and helps in stain absorption. But, if the driveway has oil, diesel and gasoline spills, then remove it as soon as possible. The best way to remove stains is to pressure wash and use other cleaning chemicals.
Do Not Use Deicing Chemicals
During the winter season, the use of deicers should be avoided. Deicers cause severe damage to the concrete driveway. Though rock salt and calcium causes less damage, but destroys vegetation. So, when treating your driveway in the winters, use sand for the traction.
Treat The Driveway With Care
Concrete driveways are considered to be one of the most durable paving materials. It is very important to know that residential driveways do not support heavy vehicles. While you are shoveling or plowing the driveway do it with care. Do not use metal blades, this scrapes and scratches the surface.
