You just spent money on a new asphalt driveway installation. It looks incredible and you are so happy with the work that was done. But you are worried about how the driveway is going to look in a few months and years.
It is an understandable concern. No one wants to spend money on a driveway that looks cracked and ugly in a few years. It is why we have put together a set of tips that will help you keep your driveway in top condition for many years. With these tips, you will have a stunning driveway for a long time to come.
Always Remove Stains Quickly
The biggest issue for many people’s driveways is the time they take in removing stains. If you leave an oil stain on the driveway for many months, you should not complain if it is hard to remove. It will come out eventually, but it will require a professional asphalt paving contractor in Saint Johns to clean it.
But if you are removing stains immediately, you can take care of these issues on your own. It is cheaper and a far smaller hassle this way.
Clean the Whole Driveway Once a Month
Based on our research and experiences, we believe that a full once a month cleaning is the sweet spot for asphalt driveways. If you are paranoid about how your driveway looks, you can always clean it more often. But cleaning it once a month will ensure that you are not getting dirt and other items embedding themselves onto the driveway.
When cleaning the driveway, it is a good idea to sweep everything off the surface. Then you can use water and a bit of detergent to mop the entire driveway. It should not take more than 30 minutes, provided you have a regular two-car driveway. And it will look amazing when that cleaning is done!
