Cleaning Concrete Floors - Concrete Cleaning


Cleaning concrete is easy and is an important step towards prolonging the life of your beautiful floors, countertops, patios, or other polished concrete. Here are some tips for cleaning your concrete to keep it
looking beautiful. Regular maintenance and concrete cleaning are necessary to keep your concrete looking as fresh and beautiful as the day it was finished. Over time, dirt that is not removed from the surface of the concrete will make its way further into the concrete and could cause significant damage. Don’t waste thousands of dollars refinishing your concrete if you don’t have to. Your local contractor can introduce you to many affordable methods of cleaning your concrete and restoring it to its original beauty and luster

When beverages and other liquids are spilled on concrete, they may leave noticeable spots. Usually soap and water will be enough to clean cola, coffee, and other beverages out of your concrete. For tougher spots, your contractor can help. Cleaning tough spots without ruining the paint, epoxy and stamping on your floor is a delicate project that requires special cleaners and tools; cleaners that are tough enough to get out the stain, yet gentle enough to keep your decorative floor intact.

If your concrete has become dirty with mold and mildew, identified by patchy black spots, don’t lose hope, this too can be cleaned with the help of your contractor. Mold and mildew can spread throughout your home quickly and mold spores can cause many illnesses including asthma and irritable bowel syndrome. If you suspect that you have mold or mildew on your concrete, be sure to contact a contractor immediately before your family’s health is impacted. Since mold and mildew are caused by moisture, your contractor may also check the surrounding area for any leaks that could be causing the excess moisture.

When dirt, dust, and grime collect on your outdoor concrete surface, it may begin to look black or brown in appearance. Whether you’ve got tobacco stains, charcoal, soil or other outdoor debris on your concrete, your contractor knows how to get it out without leaving any indication that it ever existed. Sometimes, black or brown spots on your concrete can be oily—especially on concrete used in a garage or as a driveway. Because oil and grease are so difficult to remove from concrete, harsh and toxic chemicals are used. Calling in a contractor is imperative since the harsh chemicals may damage your concrete or your health if not handled properly.

For many difficult stains and dirt spots, steam cleaning and water blasting are safe, non-toxic and effective cleaning methods. The equipment used for steam cleaning and power cleaning can be unwieldy and expensive. Additionally, too much concentrated focus with a power washer on your finished concrete could damage the paint or stamping on the surface. Your contractor has all the appropriate equipment and experience to clean these stains without damaging your concrete.
