Asphalt driveways look fantastic when they are newly laid and can really complement a property’s exterior. However, like many things, over time and with constant use the appearance of the asphalt driveway can become damaged by weeds, tyre marks and oil stains that can detract away from the overall appearance of your property. To help you restore your asphalt driveway back to its former glory, we at Border Surfacing have devised this helpful guide, overflowing with lots of helpful tips on how to clean your driveway and revive its appearance.

Driveways can have a huge impact on the overall appearance of a property, which is why it’s important for homeowners to follow our handy tips to ensure their driveway looks great and lasts for longer.

Step One: The Right Tools for the Job

A quick and easy way to remove dirt, tyre marks and oil stains is by getting in touch with tool hire shops and hiring a high pressure water jet. This should blast the majority of the dirt away from the surface of your driveway and leave it looking as good as new. However, oil is often harder to remove which is why you may need to use some detergent to help ease the oil away from the surface of your asphalt driveway.

Step Two: Regular Maintenance

Weeds can seriously damage your driveway, causing cracks to appear in its surface and generally resulting in repair work rather than a quick clean. Therefore, we suggest you keep on top of the weeds and make sure that if any do start to grow around the edge of your driveway, you invest in some quality weed killer.

Step Three: Reseal Your Driveway

To make sure your driveway lasts for years and years, it's best to get it resealed every so often and one way you can do this is by calling the professionals found here at Border Surfacing.
