Everyone dreams of walking on a clean, smooth concrete sidewalk, but in reality, these surfaces are typically dusty and unappealing all the time. Deep layers of soil, sludge, and oil smudges are drawn to concrete pavements.
TERMINATOR-HSD Concrete Cleaner and concrete stain remover will be able to remove the grease stains present in your parking lot, driveway yard, or any equipment at home.
Get Rid Of Dirty Cement with General Cleaning
Clean the surface thoroughly before you start cleaning cement stains.
- Using a push broom, sweep the surface to remove debris.
- In a bucket, add baking soda about 1/2 a cup, 1 gallon of hot water, and a generous dab of liquid dish soap. Spread this around and clean any unclean areas with a stiff brush or push broom. Let it dry after rinsing.
- To remove stubborn stains, rewet the area and apply oxygenated bleach. In contrast to the chlorinated form, oxygen bleach won’t damage the plants that line your driveway or your grass. Once more clean the area with the bristles of the broom, keep the oxygenated bleach in the area for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Clean your broom and the surface. Air-dry both completely.
Removing mildew, mold, or moss
Other organic debris cannot be cleaned like mold, moss, or cement with simple sweeping. You must eliminate the plant matter or spores that are the source of the mold stains on your cement before you can remove them.
- Spray hot water and distilled white vinegar in equal portions on the moss stains on your cement.
- After spraying, thoroughly scrub the area with the push broom.
- After giving the area a thorough rinse with fresh water, let it completely dry.
Use a mixture of 1/4 cup oxygenated bleach and 1 gallon of hot water to remove particularly tough mold or mildew stains from cement. After 15 to 30 minutes, leave it in place, then rinse and dry the area.
Oil or Grease stains
These oily cement stains can be removed, but you will need to be patient.
- Sprinkle the area liberally with cornstarch, baby powder, clay cat litter, or diatomaceous earth to absorb the surface spill. All of these materials are very absorbent and can remove greasy messes from cement. However, you must apply a coating that is about a half-inch thick.
- To lift the oil, let the powder stay in place for 24 hours. If you observe that the top layer is beginning to show oil, check it a few more times and add more powder. After a hard day, tidy up the chaos and throw everything away.
- Then, in a bucket, combine 1 quart of extremely hot water with 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap. (Adding 1/4 cup of Pine-Sol can be helpful but, if you have pets, stay away from utilizing pine oil products.)
- Use a brush or broom to apply the mixture to the area and scrub it. After a thorough hot water rinse, allow it to air dry.
Removing rust stains
Your cement may only need to be scrubbed with a sharp brush and pure white vinegar if the rust stain is still quite recent. However, rinse thoroughly with fresh water afterward since over time, undiluted vinegar will etch cement.
