How to Remove Stains from Concrete

By Matt Yukich  |  Pressure Washer Expert

If you find yourself scrubbing grease and oil stains with a toothbrush and baking soda, you're working too hard and too long. Don't wage an elbow-greased muscle war on your concrete driveway; replace your muscle with a machine and invest in a Pressure Washer.

 

How to Remove Stains from Concrete

With a power washer and the right accessories, working smarter, not harder, has never been more fun. Plus, your concrete with shine cleaner than the day it was poured.

  1. Use a pressure washer with a concrete detergent
  2. Use a surface cleaner to clean large areas quickly
  3. Use a turbo nozzle attachment for cleaning up edges and smaller spaces 

Remove Concrete Stains Using Detergent

Simply apply Concrete Detergent, and wait for 5 to 10 minutes while it works into the concrete. Make sure to reapply soapy water to any areas that start to dry. Once the soap has had time to settle in, the dirt and oils should loosen from the concrete.

Rinse away the soapy grime by moving in smooth, even motions to prevent streaking. Take your time, and be careful not to miss any spots, or they'll be noticeable. For areas that are heavily soiled, move even slower as you spray.

 

Use a Surface Cleaner to Clean Large Areas

With a Surface Cleaner, you'll clean double the surface area in half the time.

As you clean, two spinning jets of water within the cleaner-housing blast away stains double-time with double-cleaning power!. And, the end result is a much more consistent and even clean.

 

 

Avoid Streaks with Turbo Nozzles

Turbo Nozzle can decrease your cleaning time by 40%. They disperse water pressure to avoid creating lines and increase the cleaning surface area. All while blasting through deeper grease, oil, mold, and mildew stains that wouldn't budge otherwise.

For your safety, it's important to make sure the turbo nozzle is always in motion while you work and to never aim the stream anywhere near yourself or others. Avoid spraying any glass garden ornaments or decorative edging, as it could break them apart and cause injury or property damage.
