Regular asphalt maintenance can help extend the life of your investment. It can protect the aesthetic appeal of your business and prevent damage to someone’s car, among other benefits. Fortunately, our company is here to help with commercial asphalt maintenance. Here are a few pointers.
Seal Coat the Asphalt
This protective layer shields your driveway from debris, weather, and vehicle liquids like oil and transmission fluid. Sealing is a process we can perform. After we sealcoat, be sure to keep the driveway free of debris. Regular sealcoating is also recommended to prolong the life of your commercial asphalt.
Clean off Gas and Other Fluids
When gas or another automotive substance spills, clean it up quickly by putting an absorbent material over it. Then, use a specialized degreaser to further clean the area. Petroleum-based protects have an attraction to the petroleum in the asphalt. In an effort to join together, the petroleum on your driveway may erode the sealant, leaving part of your driveway vulnerable to the elements and other potential hazards.
Keep Water From Pooling
Don’t let water collect on the driveway. The water may hide damage, allowing it to remain on your driveway and potentially cause problems. The pooled water may also leave debris and dirt once it dries. Not to mention, when you have puddles on your driveway, it’s a liability if someone should slip and fall on one.
Make sure all gutters and drains are facing away from the pavement. Anytime you notice damage, repair it as soon as possible to prevent water from pooling in uneven portions of the driveway.
Get Cracks Filled as They Appear
When you notice a crack, get it filled in promptly. As a crack remains in your driveway, this opening will allow water to enter and cause damage if it should happen to freeze. If you need help with this step, we’re available for patches and other repairs.
