Haugland Brothers: Demystifying the Art of Concrete Cleaning

Though robust and durable, concrete isn’t impervious to the wear and tear of time, weather, and external elements; over time, it can accumulate dirt, grime, oil stains, and even algae, making it look aged and worn. However, achieving that pristine look is more complex than it may seem. At Haugland Brothers, we grasp the complexities involved in proficiently cleaning concrete and are here to illuminate the process for you.

Firstly, it’s essential to recognize that not all concrete surfaces are the same. Factors such as the type of stain, the age of the concrete, and the specific location (whether it’s a driveway, patio, or sidewalk) play a significant role in determining the cleaning approach.

One of the primary steps in concrete cleaning is surface preparation. This involves removing loose debris, sweeping the area, and possibly using a pressure washer to eliminate surface-level dirt. However, relying solely on pressure washing can sometimes be inadequate, especially for stubborn stains or deeply embedded dirt.

Chemical solutions and detergents often become necessary to tackle oil stains, mold, or mildew. It is crucial to choose the right cleaning agent, ensure it’s environmentally friendly, and apply it correctly. Moreover, after using chemicals, it’s essential to rinse the surface thoroughly to prevent residue buildup, which can lead to discoloration or damage over time.

If all this sounds overwhelming or too daunting a task, don’t fret. Concrete cleaning is both an art and a science, and seeking professional help is perfectly okay.
