How to Clean Concrete Surfaces and Floors Using/With Pressure Washer?

Pressure cleaning is definitely a great way to maintain concrete surfaces and floors. However, it is vital to be empowered with the right know-how of how to use pressure cleaners for concrete cleaning. So, here is all you need to know about pressure cleaning concrete surfaces.

Are you using the right equipment?

Concrete cleaning calls for powerful pressure washers featuring high pressure levels of 3000 PSI. However, if you will be using the power cleaner to maintain a range of surfaces in addition to concrete, choose one with adjustable pressure levels and set it to about 3000 PSI when you need to clean concrete.

Clear the drainage system

Pressure washers can eject a large amount of water, about 4 -5 GPM, during concrete cleaning. To ensure smooth progress of the cleaning process, the water drainage system must be clear.

What to do before cleaning?

If you are about to clean a concrete driveway, remove all kinds of debris, such as pots, vehicles, and toys, from it. Highly pressurized water can seriously damage such things. When you are cleaning graffiti or other deposits from concrete walls, ensure that all doors and windows are tightly shut and secured to prevent water from entering the house.

Pre-treat deposits for better results

Pressurized water does help eliminate most of the dirt on concrete surfaces. However, sometimes you may need to pre-treat stubborn deposits of oil, rust, and graffiti to ensure complete removal during the pressure cleaning process.

Use disinfectants, if necessary

Sometimes, concrete floors may feature moss or fungal formation. In such situations, add disinfectants into the detergent chamber of the pressure washer to eliminate the fungal development and ensure hygienic surfaces.

Use protective gear for user safety

Power washing poses the risk of getting exposed to high pressure levels. Therefore, you must always wear protective gear, such as mask, gloves, boots, and clothing with pants and full sleeves, while cleaning concrete with pressure washers.
