Cleaning a Concrete Driveway
The frequency that a driveway needs to be cleaned professionally depends on two factors, vehicle traffic and local weather. Vehicle traffic can cause stains from fluid leaks and leave tire residue on the concrete driveway. Concrete is porous and fluids seep deep into the concrete, so it is crucial to clean any fluid puddles away as soon as they are noticed.
Concrete sealers extend the life of your concrete by reducing the amount of wear caused by vehicle traffic and the effects of fluid staining. Sealer finishes vary and range from a natural appearance to high gloss depending on the desired design effect.
