Cleaning Asphalt Driveways

Tips for Cleaning an Asphalt Driveway

By: Mark J. Donovan

Cleaning asphalt driveways can vary in complexity from simply using laundry detergent, water and a stiff broom, to the more arduous and expensive endeavor of resealing the driveway. In many cases you will wind up doing both.


If your asphalt driveway has old oil stains and tire marks, you may have success cleaning your driveway with laundry detergent, a stiff broom and a bucket of water.


For the troubled oil spots you may want to try baking soda or Trisodium Phosphate (TSP). Alternatively you can also try bleach on the troubled oil stain spots.


If none of these standard household products work on removing old oil stains, you can also try commercial asphalt driveway cleaning products to remove oil stains from driveways.  Make sure, however, to use a cleaning product that is specifically made for asphalt driveways.

Using a driveway cleaning product meant for concrete driveways could damage your asphalt driveway.


If you cannot remove the oil stains and old tire marks from your asphalt driveway to your satisfaction, then you may want to apply an asphalt driveway sealer. An asphalt driveway sealer will not only hide the old oil stains but also give the driveway a beautifully smooth and black surface appearance.
