There are many steps to the asphalt sealcoating process, which are very useful because they contribute to asphalt surfaces that are safer and look better. The first thing that an asphalt sealcoating company needs to do is clean the surface and edge the pavement. Power sweeping and high-pressure blower cleaning are used. The purpose of this is to provide a very clean surface for the sealer to stick to. Then, oil stain treatment is done to take away any free-floating residue.
In some cases, the asphalt sealcoating company will then fill in cracks in the surfaces and patch any potholes.
After all of this, the actual asphalt sealcoating process occurs. A good asphalt sealcoating company will not water down their sealer mixture and will apply all of it by hand using brushes. This will allow them to actually work the sealer into the surface itself, which will make it last longer and make it look better. After this, the company will barricade off the work area, so that people know that they are not supposed to go into the space. No matter how well the job is done, it can easily be ruined if people step on the surface prematurely.
