ASPHALT DRIVEWAY MAINENANCE
The following are common causes that affect or damage your asphalt surface. In this guideline We have provide remedy methods for each cause.
Petroleum Based Products
The surface is bonded together with bitumen so is prone to damage if any petroleum based product (i.e. petrol, turpentine etc) is spilt on the surface.
To prevent damage occurring avoid using these products on the new surface.
Should an accidental spillage occur, mop up excess immediately with a cloth.
Do not rub the surface, rinse with clean water.
Oil and Grease etc
Oil spills are best cleaned up immediately. Soak up excess with a dry cloth then cover the area with a dry absorbent material (dry dust, dry soil or sawdust). Leave on the spot for several minutes then clean off. Repeat this until the excess oil is absorbed.
- Once excess oil is removed clean the surface with hot soapy water and a brush then rinse with cold water.
