Cleaning And Repairing Pavement

Vinyl cloths need to be laid across property that adjoins a driveway. A push broom can be used to collect loose debris on a driveway’s surface. A garden sprayer’s reservoir should be filled with water. Detergent and bleach can be added to water to create a cleaning agent. After spraying a driveway’s surface, a large sponge or scrub brush can be used to loosen dirt from asphalt. A hose needs to be used to spray water across clean asphalt. If asphalt is cracked or if small holes are located across portions of a driveway, a narrow trowel can be used to fill damaged areas with pavement patch. A tamping tool may be needed to compress patch.

Adding Sealer To A Driveway’s Surface

When patch has hardened, pavement sealer can be poured into a paint tray. Sealer will provide a driveway with a smooth surface. It will also protect pavement from heat and moisture. A paint roller that has a thick cotton or wool nap should be secured to a long handle. A tray filled with sealer needs to be set on top of one of the vinyl cloths so that the contents in the tray do not accidentally spill while sealing a driveway. After coating a paint roller with sealer, a roller should be moved over a driveway’s surface

To provide pavement with even coverage, a roller should be moved in straight lines from one end of a driveway to the opposite end. Sealer may not dry for a day or two. While waiting for sealer to dry, a sign can be set up near each end of a driveway to prevent anyone from walking on the pavement’s surface.
