You want your asphalt parking lot or driveway to last decades. How do you ensure that it lasts as long as it can? Proper maintenance can extend the life of your paving project - but asphalt maintenance isn’t as tricky as it sounds. Asphalt is affected regularly by weather, heavy loads, oil and many other normal substances it may come in contact with.
Clean your asphalt.
Remember when your mother said keeping things clean helped them last longer? Well, she was right - in the case of asphalt at least. Keep it clear of excess water, and yard clippings.
