Resin bound surfaces are often used when building pathways and driveways. This is a durable material that will last for decades, but it needs to be cleaned and maintained on a regular schedule to maintain a pleasant appearance.
In order for resin bound surfaces to retain their original colour, they must be swept clean on a regular basis. If any chewing gum is present, it can be removed by freezing the surface and then chipping the gum residue away. Sweeping away detritus and leaves will prevent moss growth. Using an appropriate herbicide will rid the surface of any algae, then wiping with a strong bleach will bring back the original lustre. After the bleach, the surface must be rinsed with water.Letting leaves and other material stay on the resin bound surfaces can create staining.
The resin bound material is made for normal auto and pedestrian traffic. Dragging any heavy objects should be avoided, or else use something to protect the surface while this is done. Any heavy vehicles or other objects could leave tyre marks on light coloured resin bound surfaces. This staining would require pressure washing to get it completely removed. Pressure washing must be used lightly to prevent any surface damage.
