Sidewalk maintenance is an essential part in making your property look better. Additionally, if you wish to impress your neighbors with your garden, your sidewalk will play a big part in that. Municipal places also require sidewalks to be maintained in order to keep the city clean.
Therefore, here are several tips on general sidewalk maintenance in Vancouver:
Dirt can accumulate on your sidewalk over an extensive period of time. Making sure that you clean it appropriately with water by using a pressure pump will allow you to get rid of dirt and make your sidewalk look as good as new!
Sometimes, sidewalks require being ridden of dust, leaves, or other trash that may lay on it. Sweeping your sidewalk regularly will provide less hassle for later days.
In fall time, consider doing it more often than in other days. In winter, making sure to get rid of snow with a shovel or snow thrower when the snow hits are also important because you want to avoid ice to form on your sidewalk. If it does happen, then you have to put salt on the sidewalk to avoid any damages and injuries.
Moss is a common occurrence in the Vancouver area. We have a humid climate and lots of rain that can provoke moss growth. Moss can appear on your asphalt and concrete in an unnoticeable time. If there is no sunlight to dry it off and kill it, then there are a few methods to get rid of it. Here are the following methods you can try out:
- Pour boiling water on areas infected by the moss and scrub it with a brush. After you’re done, wash it off with hose water. This will avoid you from using unnecessary chemicals.
- Use a pressure pump as mentioned earlier. This can also help to get rid of moss!
- Use chemicals and other products such as soda and aluminum sulfate.
