Vehicle Fluids

Example of Oil Spots on Pavement

Different fluids have different methods of cleanup. If you find any of these on your driveway, clean them up as soon as possible to ensure the best care for your asphalt driveway.

Motor Oil

A thin coat of neutralizing liquid should be applied over the affected area(s) using a push or corn broom. Neutralizers are available from local building supply centers.

Gasoline, Transmission and Brake Fluids

These types of fluids should be hosed off as soon as possible after they are detected. Contact Metro Paving to have someone inspect the area to suggest ways of repairing the damaged area(s) before extensive damage occurs requiring major repairs.

Metro Paving recommends that an approved protective sealcoat be applied 8 - 12 months after initial paving and every second year after that. This will help protect your driveway against the effects of motor oil, salt, detergents used to wash vehicles, the sun’s rays, etc., and it will also enhance its appearance. Caution should be used, as there are products available which do not provide the desired effect and may adversely affect the warranty of the driveway.

To ensure an approved product is correctly applied please contact Metro Paving at 902-864-3727 to schedule an appointment.
