A resin driveway can have a long life if you follow a few simple rules in terms of maintenance.
Here’s a brief guide on how to maintain the surface and offer a long life to your driveway or patio and more.
Preventing tire marks
You will be able to prevent tire marks by refraining from turning your steering wheel while the car is stationary.
Tire marks are caused by oils in the surface being heated by the friction of tires.
Routine cleaning of a resin driveway
It’s important to learn that various potential issues with a resin surface may be prevented by sweeping it clean on a regular basis with a stiff broom.
This will remove leaves and other materials and will also prevent moss growth.
You can remove foreign bodies by hosing down with a standard jet wash – this will definitely remove potentially damaging elements as well.
How to jet wash a resin surface
The resin surface has to be cleaned periodically using a pressure washer or a sweeper.
In order to jet wash your resin driveway, you just have to follow these simple steps.
Spray the surface with a flat nozzle in order to improve the precision of spraying the flat surface.
You should use a jet wash/pressure with a pressure up to 150bar. It’s also important to note that excessive pressure could really damage your surface.
Another important issue is that water should be cool, but not too cold. The moderate temperature will prevent damaging the resin.
You should hold the nozzle at about 20cm from the surface when spraying.
If you spray too closely, this could damage the surface. Also, it’s best to spray using a back and forth sweeping motion for the best results.
These are just a few things that can boost the life of your resin surface.
