Keep Your Driveway Looking New All Year
Our driveways go through a lot, especially when the seasons change. As the weather warms up and spring approaches, you want your driveway to look like new. For some tips on how to maintain your driveway, keep reading this blog post.
The first way to maintain your driveway is to pressure wash. Pressure washing works wonders on siding, but it’s also a perfect cleaning method for stained driveways and sidewalks. Combine a cleanser with the force of your pressure washer for an effective and easy clean. You can even clean tough stains with the pressure washer, helping your driveway to look like new.
Maybe you don’t have a pressure washer, and that’s OK. The next best solution for cleaning your driveway and helping it look like new is using dish soap or laundry detergent, mixed with water. Mixing one of these cleaning solutions with water will dilute it to a healthy level that will clean your driveway without damaging or staining it. To apply this mixture to your driveway, use a bristled broom, a deck brush, or another type of textured cleaning tool.
The final tip to keep your driveway looking like new is using sawdust, baking soda, or kitty litter to absorb liquids. Sometimes cars leak fluids. The best way to clean these fluids is by letting them absorb with one of the listed products. This will reduce the risk of staining and make cleaning easy. If you have kids, you may also have to deal with the spilling of juices, ice cream, popsicles, and so on. These products also work for food and beverage stains.
