Tips to take care of your driveways for longer life
Once the driveways are laid it is vital that you take care of them by cleaning them periodically. With time, there will be tyres and other marking including oil spills, so when using special cleaning products, make sure to read the cleaning instructions that need to be followed w.r.t each kind of material. Using harsh acids can distort the appearance of the driveway materials. Frequent sweeping will prevent your driveway from getting stained by the leaves. While installing driveways always make sure to do the weed treatment as well.
Also, consider getting a power wash yearly for great-looking driveways.
