Resin Driveway Maintenance: Removing Algae, Moss, And Weeds From The Surface

We’ve already addressed various ways to maintain your resin driveway’s lifespan as long as possible, and now we move on with some other tips and tricks about cleaning the surface.

How to remove moss and algae from a resin driveway

An important thing that is worth mentioning is that weed growth should be treated before surfacing, and this will make it very unlikely that new growth will be sustained.

Another essential issue is learning that periodical application of algae and moss killers such as “algon” will also prevent and remove any regrowth.

It’s important to note the fact that the ingrained algae growth can also be removed, and the color of the original surface can be restored by applying a strong bleach solution.

But this should only be used according to the manufacture’s guide and local environmental contractions. After the substance is applied, the resin driveway should be rinsed with clean water.

Removing weeds from a resin driveway

First of all, we have to note the fact that due to its properties, a resin surface is designed in roder to be resistance to weeds.

On the other hand, no matter how much care will be taken, weeds could, unfortunately, appear on any surface occasionally.

This is the result of wind-blown seeds.

But, the good news is that a small number of weeds can be removed by hand without damaging the resin surface. If this is the case, it’s essential to make sure that the full root of the weed is extracted and not broken off.

If we have to deal with some more prolific weeds, they can be cut at the surface level. But if the weeds are deep-rooted, they should be killed with weed killer and herbicide.

It’s important to remember that localized areas of the surface of weed infestation can be treated with domestic weed killers that will not cause any damage to the resin driveway.
