Spring time isn’t just for cleaning and organizing around the house. It also goes for taking the time to thoroughly clean your driveway, and the exterior of your home. Spring cleaning for driveways involves a variety of different methods to get it looking like new once again.
Pressure washing will wash out dirt and debris that has been pushed deep into the grooves of the pavement. The pressure is strong enough to get out even the toughest of stains or hardened materials that have melted into the pavement. This is an essential first step to spring cleaning for driveways, as it sets a clean canvas for other maintenance steps.
Make sure to use a metal spatula or hard tool to scrape away hardened material that the pressure washer couldn’t clean away. This is a great opportunity to focus your attention on the little details and make that driveway look pristinely clean.
Weed Out the Green
Weeds can oftentimes grow in little cracks and potholes on your property or driveway. Weeding them out will not only make it look more up-kept and maintained, but also ensure they don’t grow their roots even farther and make the holes larger.
Fix Potholes & Cracks
Keeping a regular eye on your driveway is essential. Whenever small cracks and potholes form, make sure to call us so we could quickly fix them up for you, or go to your local hardware store to inquire if there are any options you can purchase. Not patching them will cause them to grow larger during the winter and even more damage during the summer.
Spring cleaning for driveways involves incorporating protection. Sealcoating your driveway is like adding a final varnish layer to a painting. It seals in all of the hard work that has put into it, protects the materials and surface from scratches and damage, and provides a waterproof layer that stops water from seeping deep into the foundation.
