Tips To Maintain A Monoblock Driveway

If you are lucky enough to have a monoblock driveway, then you know that it not only looks good but also it is hard-wearing and should last for many years to come. This is why it is one of the most popular driveway types to be installed in and around Dunfermline and throughout Scotland.

Let’s be frank here, any driveway in Scotland is going to be exposed to a lot of inclement weather, which is another reason why this type of driveway is so popular in Scotland.

It is essential that you undertake a little bit of regular maintenance and general care to ensure that your driveway continues to look as good as the day it was installed for many years to come.

Essential Driveway Maintenance

Little and often is the key to preventing a large build-up of moss, algae, and lichen on your driveway. Every six months or so, get a bucket of hot soapy water and scrub your driveway using a stiff brush. Only use a soap which does not contain any acid, washing up liquid is one of the most popular products people use for this task. 

Choose a small area of your driveway and pour some of the hot soapy water over it. Then use the brush to scrub that area, ensuring that you remove all of the visible dirt and detritus. The soap will loosen the dirt, and then as you rub the surface with the brush, most of the dirt will come away from the surface of the driveway. 

Monthly Driveway Cleaning 

Getting down on your hands and knees to wash your driveway may not sound overly appealing; by following these simple tips, you might be able to avoid ever needing to wash your driveway as mentioned above, or at least reduce it to once a year. 

Once a month, sweep your driveway with a stiff-bristled broom. The aim of this process is to remove any surface dirt, leaves, and loose soil. This type of material makes your driveway slippery and also encourages the growth of moss, algae and weeds. 

If you have a DIY pressure washer, then you can clean your driveway with it, but be careful not to use too much pressure, as there is a risk that you could dislodge the sand between the bricks which is used to ensure the integrity of the driveway.
