Oil stains on your driveway aren’t just aesthetically displeasing to the eye, but they can also lead to potentially serious structural problems in your driveway if they’re left untreated for too long. You might even have to have your driveway either partially or fully replaced if the stain isn’t properly cleared away. While there are do-it-yourself driveway oil stain removal methods available, it’s always a better idea to hire the professional asphalt contractors at Sure-Seal Pavement Maintenance Inc. to get the job done for you.
Oil Stain Removal
Residential oil stain treatment is one of our many specialties. Some companies will recommend that you remove and repave either the affected asphalt or the entire driveway, but we know better than that. In most cases, removing and repaving the asphalt is completely unnecessary and it’ll just end up costing you more money than you should have to pay for oil stain removal. We’ll take the time to visit your property, examine the blemish, and take the right steps to removing the spot from your driveway.
Importance of Oil Stain Removal from Asphalt Pavement
Most people tend to underestimate oil stains, thinking that they’re just surface blemishes, but that’s not entirely true. If an oil stain is left untreated for a very long time, eventually the grease will penetrate through the asphalt or concrete and compromise the internal structure of your driveway. Evidence of this is shown in the form of cracks which can eventually turn into potholes with a great deal of use. Of course, your driveway doesn’t see nearly as much traffic as a main road does, so the likelihood of forming a pothole is unlikely, but the asphalt could begin to crumble and dry out over time. From there, it’s a slippery slope to water and other debris seeping in through the cracks and eroding your driveway from the inside out.
Our Oil Stain Removal Process
At Sure-Seal, we only use environmentally safe oil stain removal methods that are proven to work efficiently and completely. The health and safety of our clients and their families is one of our top priorities while working on residential properties and we’d never do anything to compromise that. That’s why we have a very precise process of carefully, yet effectively removing even the toughest oil stains from concrete and asphalt driveways. Depending on the size and severity of the stain, it might be sensible to use an asphalt blow torch to burn and loosen up the stain so that it ceases to stick to the blacktop. Then we gently apply our specially concocted, heavy-duty oil stain primer to clean off the stain permanently. After the primer is set, we re-seal your entire driveway to create an additional layer of protection and prevent further damages from taking place.
