Annual Maintenance and Cost of Tarmac Driveways
With a tarmac driveway it's important to keep any hard debris or loose material off the finished surface as when trafficked the hard debris will become abrasive to the smooth surface.
The best way to maintain tarmac is use a leaf blower or fan attachment on a jet wash to keep any loose debris from the surface. If using a jet wash avoid using a turbo lance, as if powerful enough it will damage the surface.
A good weed and algae inhibitor is good practice, along with a rinse down with a hose and sweep with a stiff broom. Expect to pay £2.00-£2.50 per SQM for a professional company to maintain your surface annually.
