Concrete Pressure Washing

Blastworks Pressure Washing performs a lot of Concrete Pressure Washing.  We perform this function mostly by using what we call our “Big Guy” or “Surface Cleaner”.  It is our concrete cleaning machine that can cover a larger area, at a faster rate, and cleans more accurately than using the typical wand or spray gun cleaning.  This helps us get on your property, get done, and get off your property before we disrupt your daily routine.  After cleaning your concrete, we spray it with a special formula that will stop any new algae, mold, or moss from forming, acting as a preventative, while also killing off any algae, mold, or mildew that typical pressure washing doesn’t remove.  This in turn will keep your concrete clean for a much longer period.  We also use this technique for brick pavers, natural stone surfaces, and other paving surfaces.  If it’s paved, Blastworks Pressure Washing can clean it!

Oil Stained Concrete Pressure Washing

Oil stained concrete is something we get asked a lot about at Blastworks Pressure Washing. “Can you remove these oil stains from my concrete?” Yes, and maybe no. Oil stains are plain and simple tough. Many factors go into if oil can be removed from concrete. The most important factor is how long the oil has been on the concrete. Long term oil stains are almost impossible to remove completely. They can be removed enough to were only a shadow of the oil stain is visible in most cases. Another question is what type of oil is it? And finally, how porous is the concrete? With all these factors going into the removal of an oil stain, it is hard to be able to tell someone an oil stain can be removed completely.

Rust Stained Concrete Pressure Washing

Like oil stains, rust stain removal depend on many factors. What is the rust stain caused by? How porous is the concrete that the stain is located in? Fertilizer rust stains are one of the more difficult to remove completely. Granules left on concrete from fertilizing the yard, or leaking from a potted plant can be one of the hardest rust stains out there. Most of the time these rust stains cannot be completely removed, but can be lightened to a faint shadow. Rust stains from a piece of outdoor furniture can usually be removed with no problems. One of the many chemicals we use to fight these rust stains will brighten your concrete to make it look like the day after it was poured on your property. Unfortunately with this chemical you have to treat the entire concrete area or you will have a brighter shade concrete than the other areas. The only true way to be able to tell if a rust stain is removable is to have us evaluate the rust stain. So call us today to schedule your free estimate!
