Help Your Asphalt Last Longer with These Maintenance Tips
Are you looking for asphalt maintenance tips? You’ve come to the right place. In this month’s blog, Paving Plus is giving our Southwest Virginia clients, and potential clients, asphalt maintenance tips. Your asphalt driveway will be one of your biggest investments this year, so you should take care of it. The asphalt will undergo some wear and tear over the years. But the asphalt will last longer by following these asphalt maintenance tips.
You Should Perform Routine Inspections of the Asphalt
You should perform routine maintenance of the asphalt. This does not require having to set a certain time, but you should pay attention to the driveway. Set aside some time to walk around your driveway, and look closely for any issues with your asphalt. If your inspection turns up any cracks, potholes, stains, or any other issue, jump on the problem immediately.
Jump on Any Asphalt Repairs by Calling Paving Plus Immediately
Once you have discovered the problem and decide to tend to it immediately, you have to make the repair. Most likely, if you discover the issue on a close inspection, the damage is minor. The repair will be less expensive, and it won’t be a big repair. Your best move would be to call Paving Plus for our driveway services.
Keep Your Asphalt Driveway Clean of Salt and Chemical Spills
You should treat your asphalt with tender, loving care by cleaning it regularly. Run a pressure washer on the driveway to get rid of dirt, dust, salt, oil, and chemical spills. Salt or chemical spills can erode the quality of the asphalt over time. So if you don’t tend to the salt or chemical spills, it will challenge the durability of the asphalt.
Be Sure to Get Sealcoating Every Two-to-Three Years
As we blogged about in November of 2021, sealcoating is essential for your driveway or parking lot. You should get sealcoating every two-to-three years. Paving Plus can provide sealcoating for you. One of the benefits of sealcoating a parking lot is that is slows the rate of rain penetrating the asphalt. Rain, sun, snow, and ice can take their toll on pavements in and around Christiansburg, VA.
