How to Clean Resin Driveways

What is a Resin Driveway

A resin driveway is a type of asphalt that’s made from recycled rubber and plastic materials. 

Asphalt, in general, is the mixture of sand with clay mixed together to form tar – this stuff can be moulded into sheets for use on roads!

Both non-resin driveways are manufactured by mixing these ingredients but there’s one major difference between them: which source material they get their fibreglass/fibres from. 

Non-recycled ones will depend upon old tires while those built out of Resins require specific types like polyurethane used instead

What do you need to clean a resin driveway?

When you clean a resin driveway, it will last longer and stay cleaner. 

When spills happen on an asphalt driveway they can stain the surface quickly which is why cleaning your outdoor space regularly helps prevent these stains from getting worse over time! 

With just three months of maintaining the right service twice yearly (or monthly if conditions suit), not only does their appearance improve greatly but also so do performance characteristics like safety for pedestrians who may walk nearby due to lower risk associated with traffic accidents involving cars seen leaving behind dirty tires.

What you need to clean a resin driveway

For a more thorough clean, you’ll want to use the power washer. For best results and because it works quickly with water pressure of about 1,200 PSI (pounds per square inch), make sure that your driveway has been wet for 10 minutes before cleaning – this will reduce dirt accumulation on top of dried-in oil stains or other impurities at their source. 

The jet should be set on stream OR rinse mode which helps loosen up those stubborn grime particles stuck deep within cracks between paving stones as well as under drains where moss may have grown too fast without any sunlight getting through since artificial lighting usually just leeches whatever little bit there might’ve been.

Other ways to maintain your resin driveway

In addition to cleaning resin driveways, there are a few other things you can do so it lasts longer. Avoid scraping or chipping the material by driving over loose rock or gravel.

You can also prevent stains from asphalt sealers by applying a light coat of sealer each spring and fall.

If you’re a homeowner, the best way to maintain your driveway is to use a broom and sweep it off twice a week.

Why you should have a resin driveway in the first place

If you don’t want to worry about stains or damage, then you should consider using a resin driveway. Unlike dirt and gravel, resin driveways are more resistant to staining and damage.

Resin driveways last longer, too. You should also consider the environmental benefits of using resin instead of asphalt. At First Impressions Yorkshire, we can supply driveways all over Yorkshire including resin driveways in Sheffield.

Resin driveways and safety

Many people think that because resin driveways are made from soft materials, they’re unsafe. 

This is not the case and varies depending on the manufacturer and quality of driveway materials. Resin is often more durable than asphalt. 

You are better off with a resin driveway that doesn’t have gaps or jagged edges that could potentially harm someone walking outside of your home.

Conclusion

If you are looking for a way to make your driveway last longer and need an environmentally friendly option, you should consider using resin driveways.

Resin driveways offer many advantages over asphalt including lasting longer, being more durable than asphalt, saving money by not having to replace it as often or opting out of expensive sealant treatments that can be hard on the environment.
