Concrete may be fairly low-maintenance, but being a porous material makes it prone to staining and discoloration making it very hard to properly clean. It is constantly exposed to the elements and add the high volume of vehicle and foot traffic can cause it to wear out and deteriorate over time. Rain, moisture, salt and snow, and high temperatures can all shorten the life of your concrete surfaces.
Concrete cleaning isn’t just an aesthetic service meant to improve your property’s visual appeal, but it also serves to improve its overall functionality. Dirty concrete surfaces can become infested by organic growth such as moss, mold, algae, making it slippery and a potential safety hazard, that’s why concrete cleaning is one of the most important aspects of property maintenance.
Since concrete is a porous material, it can be easily penetrated by contaminants such as oil, grease, rust, sap, dirt, and grime. The more porous the concrete the more deeper it can be penetrated. If left untreated for an extended period of time it can become very difficult to remove specially without using the proper equipment, cleaning agents, and professional techniques.
