How To Clean A Concrete Patio


There are plenty of answers to the question at hand: 'How To Clean A Concrete Patio'? Before the cleaning procedure has taken place, the fact that has to be taken into account is that no concrete patios can be treated equally. Over a period of time, due to regular use of concrete flooring, grows a layer of grime and dirt, mildew or algae. The floors may have been ill-decorated with spills, oils, grease and other stains. Maintaining a concrete patio is essential for environmental hygiene thus it has to be cleaned periodically.

Routine Cleaning

In accordance to stains, spraying commercial chemicals such as degreasers or a mix of oxygen bleach or rust remover is doable. The cleaners are sprayed onto the floors and are left overnight or at least a few hours. Finally, once the cleaners have done their things, a pressure washer is used. PLEASE NOTE: Because some concrete cleaning chemicals contain a strong amount of chlorine, ammonia, hydrogen peroxide etc., the residue needs to be rinsed exhaustively with a garden hose.

Sealing and Waterproofing Your Concrete Patio

After the cleaning task is completed, the concrete is sealed and waterproofed for protection against attracting grime sooner than supposed to. Concrete sealers are applied evenly to the surface to make it able to resist water and left for at least 24 hours. Xtreme Polishing Systems knows that sealed floors are able to withstand extreme temperatures more effectively than unsealed concrete.
