Rust Removal

"RUST?... ON CONCRETE?"

This is a response I often get when I explain to customers what the red marks are on their concrete.


THE MOST COMMON TYPES OF RUST STAINS THAT I SEE ARE FROM:

    *Fertilizers that contain iron

    *Metal objects sitting on the surface

Also, battery acid stains look a lot like rust stains. Although they are not a rust stains, the process in cleaning them is similar. In an area where a lot of residents have golf carts, you will see a lot of these type stains.



The product I use is called F9 BARC. It is by far one the absolute best products out there for rust stains and battery acid stains. Trust me, before I used this stuff I tried almost all the home remedies you can find on youtube and most products on the market. The problem I came accross with some of the very few other products that seemed to work, is that they were acidic. Rust removals that contain acids can eat through your concrete and strip it of its cement paste and even "etch" your concrete. This does permanent damage to your concrete. Removing rust and battery acid stains can be done by anyone, BUT it is highly recommended that a trained professional do it. Rust stains are not all a like and they require careful steps to be taken.


It is very important to understand that most rust stain removals are not "spot" removals. They entire pad or block of concrete needs to be treated in order to ensure a nice even clean look to the whole structor. A rust stain/battery stain removal does cost more per square foot, however, you get a complete restoration done to your concrete with this service. After using degreasers, F9 BARC, and a surface cleaner, we will have your concrete looking the best that it can! So DONT WORRY, if your seeing some very big or bad spots on your concrete, we can get up to 100% of it out!


Battery acid stains can come in two forms. One form looks just like rust and we can clean that for you. The other form produces a white color. Unfortunately, if you have these white stains from battery acids, there is no cleaner out there to get it out. A study was done that shows the white stain can actually travel through the entire slab of concrete. However, it is very important that this stain gets addressed and nutralized to prevent it from spreading out.
