Cleaning Asphalt for Seal-Coating

How to Prepare a Surface for Seal-Coating Asphalt

Leaf Blower Product Expert

Asphalt companies are expected to do a professional job every time, and they don't want to be called back to redo the work.

To ensure the asphalt adheres properly the first time, it's important to have a clean surface. Debris left behind can come loose, taking asphalt with it.

Using a commercial leaf blower to clean the surface will ensure a higher quality seal-coat.

Seal coating is done to fill cracks and crevices, restore a smooth finish, and extend the life of the asphalt. But if you leave debris in the cracks and crevices you're filling, you're leaving loose material that can allow the overlying seal coating to come loose with it after you're finished.

A backpack leaf blower allows you to aim the nozzle directly at the cracks to blow out all dust, dirt, and debris.

These are great finishing tools for larger jobs, but can even be your primary unit for smaller jobs like driveways.

For larger jobs like parking lots or roadways, a backpack leaf blower may take a while. And as you know, time is money.

Walk behind leaf blowers remove debris from larger areas more quickly, saving you time so you can complete more jobs.

For better results, follow up with a backpack leaf blower to make certain you've removed all debris from deep down in the cracks before you begin seal-coating.
