Driveways and Sidewalks
There are some people that are not overly concerned with the well being of their driveway. If you think about it, it is the only road that you are going to drive on every single day. Plus, it is the first thing that people are going to see when they pull up to your home. Without a doubt, a beat-up driveway can really drag down the way that a house looks. If you are looking to sell sometime soon this can be a major concern. Even if you look at your home as a financial asset having these areas cleaned is something small in the grand scheme of things, but could bring you positive results in the long run.
Can We Treat All Driveways The Same?
Of course not. If you have an asphalt driveway you are probably going to be facing different challenges than you would if you had a concrete driveway. Concrete driveways, for example, are at times very similar to tile floors. In that, we are going to be very focused on the joint points between those slabs where a lot of junk can build up. With asphalt, we may be more concerned with a lot of the bits of the asphalt itself that has basically broken off.
Can I Legally Clean My Sidewalk?
Clean yes, paint maybe not. This is pretty much the quickest answer that we are going to be able to give for this question. A lot like in the gutter page where we talked about removing ice. This is one of the common issues that we often solve with driveways and sidewalks. It is not only about keeping them clean. We can also make them safer so that your car won’t skid and end up hitting your own house. That would be literally double trouble.
Should Asphalt Driveways Be Pressure Washed?
This is a similar issue to the one that we have in roofing. Where in certain roofs we are going to be able to get to all of those joints points that are typically hard to reach. Once we do that we are going to be able to lift all of that junk out from under them. With asphalt, we are not going to be dealing with as many joints points as we are with concrete. That does not mean that power washing is not going to be effective. We are literally going to be able to remove the dust that has built upon the surface. Which tends to be a lot.
Can We Just Dump All of The Debris Into The Sewer?
Sewers are technically built to handle natural debris that could fall on them. This is going to include things like leaves, dirt and other types of natural things. That will usually not cause a major problem. If we see though that there is just an excessive amount of junk piling up we won’t allow it to just flow freely. If we do that, it is going to bring you other types of problems down the line.
