It is important to clean your resin-bound driveway regularly to prevent marks and stains. Using a high-pressure cleaner will help remove stains and grease from the surface. You can also use cold or warm water for this task. Chewing gum can also be removed using a scraper that is designed for this purpose.
Regular cleaning is also important for the longevity of the surfacing. Regular sweeping and hosing will help remove debris and weeds. Regular pressure washing is also essential. However, be careful not to use too much pressure because it can damage the surface. Also, avoid using wire brushes or abrasive pads.
If weeds grow on the surface, remove them by cutting them back or using a mild weed killer. However, strong weed killers can discolour the resin surface. You can also use SureSet maintenance repair kits to get rid of weeds. One of the biggest dangers of a resin-bound driveway is the spread of weed seeds. The best way to prevent weed growth is to take action immediately.
Resin bonded surfaces have special weed resistant qualities. Weeds on resin-bound surfaces appear because seeds are blown onto the surface. You can remove weeds by pulling them by hand or by using a mechanical sweeping machine. You can also use a weed killer, but make sure you use a diluted formula. The solution should be rinsed off thoroughly with clean water.
Another option is to hire a professional service for annual power cleaning. This is an expert service that focuses on cleaning and maintaining the surface of the driveway. This will help keep the driveway’s surface looking smooth and traction-free. A professional power cleaner will clean your driveway on a yearly basis to protect it from damage.
Winter weather can also be difficult for a resin-bound driveway. In these cold weather months, it is important to protect the surface from ice and snow. A metal snow shovel can cause damage and spread loose aggregates. You can also use a standard snow shovel to clear your driveway and prevent icy patches.
Resin-bound gravel is a porous material that allows water to run off the surface. This helps prevent flooding. Despite being porous, resin-bound gravel may lose some of its porosity if it is not regularly maintained. Jet-washing is a good way to remove small contamination and ensure a clean resin-bound surface.
