Removing Stains from your Concrete Driveway
Stubborn stains are almost as annoying as a decolouration of the surface. Although discoloured concrete doesn’t technically count as a stain, they are just as unsightly. Luckily, we’ve got a handy tip! Try scrubbing the discolouration with 1 cup of ammonia diluted in 3.7 litres of water. Ensure to hose the surface well when finished.
Salt has the habit of staining a concrete surface very easily. In fact, sometimes it even eats away at the material! For a very effective way to remove this stubborn compound, sprinkle the build-ups with a generous handful of baking soda then simply add some sand to improve the traction.
Driveways are perfect for carrying out DIY car cleaning and maintenance however the grease, oil and transmission fluid spills can add up over the years and your concrete driveway can end up looking tattered. For a quick-fix solution, spray the stains with oven cleaner, leave it to settle for 15 minutes then scrub with a stiff, sturdy brush. Some stains may require a section application. Following this, rinse the surface with a high-pressure hose.
