How to Clean Asphalt Driveway

Asphalt is a popular material for paving driveways, but over time, it can become stained and dirty due to various factors, including dirt, oil, and environmental pollutants. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help keep your asphalt driveway looking its best. A-Rock Asphalt Services will explore the best way to clean your asphalt driveway.


What You Will Need

Before you start cleaning your asphalt driveway, you will need to gather the following tools and materials:

  • A broom or leaf blower to remove loose debris
  • A pressure washer (you can rent one if you don’t have one)
  • A cleaning solution designed for asphalt surfaces (you can purchase this from your local hardware store)
  • A garden hose and adjustable nozzle


Steps to Clean Your Asphalt Driveway

Remove Loose Debris

Start by removing any loose debris from the surface of your driveway. Use a broom or leaf blower to clear away dirt, leaves, and other debris. It will make it easier to see any stains or spots that need to be addressed.

Use an Asphalt Cleaning Solution Properly

Apply a cleaning solution designed for asphalt surfaces. This solution will help to break down and lift any oil or grease stains that may be present on your driveway. Read the instructions carefully and apply the solution to the surface of your driveway as directed.

Let the Solution Work

Allow the cleaning solution to sit on the surface of your driveway for the amount of time specified in the instructions. It will give the solution time to penetrate and lift any stains or spots.

Rinse the Surface using a Pressure Washer

Use a pressure washer to rinse the cleaning solution and any remaining dirt or grime. Use the appropriate pressure setting for your asphalt driveway to avoid damaging the surface.

Use Appropriate Solution for Stubborn Stains

If there are any particularly stubborn stains or spots on your driveway, you may need to repeat the cleaning process or use a specialized cleaner designed for that type of stain.

Rinse and Dry

Rinse your driveway with a garden hose and adjustable nozzle after cleaning. Let your driveway dry completely before using it.
