Cleaning Concrete / Asphalt Driveways & Sidewalks

Asphalt and Concrete Cleaning For Driveways, Sidewalks, Parking Lots and Drive Thru Lanes

Driveways, walkways and sidewalks are sometimes made from different types of material like concrete, asphalt and stone just to name a few. Cleaning concrete and other porous materials can be very demanding and in some cases, can't be cleaned at all due to the stain type, age of the stain and how far down it has been absorbed.

The difficulty of removal also depends greatly on the type of driveway or walkway you have. Although most are made from concrete, some are made by asphalt, stone and even brick or tile pavers. Though concrete, brick, stone and tile all have their share of difficulties, asphalt is a whole new game, so we'll save that for a later date. We're going to focus on concrete cleaning for the primary purpose of this tip section.

Now don't misunderstand, cleaning concrete is no easy task. There are several things you will need to get started. The main thing is a good commercial grade power washer. You can rent one at your local home improvement store. The next thing is the right cleaner. You need to buy a professional strength concrete cleaner and make sure to read the instructions carefully before beginning your project.

After reading the instructions, proceed with caution and make sure not to hold the tip of the wand too close to the concrete. Loose dirt and debris could be propelled and possibly cause an eye injury. Be prepared to move slowly and give the cleaners time to work and as indicated in the concrete cleaning instructions. If this work seems too strenuous for you, please contact a professional concrete cleaning contractor to do the work for you. If you live in Michigan, Contact Mobile Pressure Wash.

dozers all the way...

I remember in the 90's when Patio concretes were just hard to clean and we have to bring out the bulldozers to do its job. Now, with so many tips and guides online, all needs to be done by a simple soda solution.
