Hello again and happy Fall.
In the last couple of weeks we have been getting several calls from customers about their stamped asphalt driveways, and how to remove oil stains, wet leaf stains, and other stains off of the driveway without damaging the coating. Because of the unique StreetBond coatings that each Driveway Impression‘s driveway receives, typical stains that would normally stain plain asphalt and concrete will not stain the StreetPrint driveway. This is of course if you don’t leave stains sitting for 6 months.
After the Driveway Impressions decorative stamped asphalt driveway is installed you should periodically flush the driveway with water. this is to remove any abrasive materials like sand and dirt. It is also recommended to use a low pressure, high volume rinse. Leaving excessive abrasive materials on the driveway can decrease the overall life of the surfacing system.
One of the great benefits and advantages of a Driveway Impression‘s driveway that homeowners love, is that it is resistant to oil, grease and gas. However, it is recommended that you remove any stains from the pavement as soon as possible. If plain water does not remove the stain homeowners can use ZEP Citrus Cleaner or Simple Green; scrub the area with a stiff broom or brush, and follow it up with a high volume, low-pressure rinse. ZEP and Simple green are common cleaners that can be bought at your local hardware store.
