Expert Tips for Removing Stains from Concrete and Uni-Stone Surfaces

Concrete and uni-stone surfaces are popular for their durability, but they're not immune to the occasional stubborn stain or grease mark. Whether it's a driveway, patio, or walkway, getting these surfaces back to their pristine state is doable with the right approach. Here is how you can tackle those tough stains

1.    Absorbing Fresh Grease

Dealing with a fresh grease stain? Quick action is key. Grab some kitty litter, cornstarch, or baking soda and cover the stain generously. These absorbent materials work wonders in soaking up grease, especially if you leave them overnight.

2. Dish Soap Magic

Sometimes, the solution is as close as your kitchen. Mix hot water with grease-cutting dish soap and get scrubbing. Using a stiff brush, work the soapy mixture into the stain. Give it some time to break down the grease before you rinse it off.

2.    Tackling Tough Stains with a Degreaser

For those older, stubborn grease marks, it's time to bring out the heavy artillery - a commercial degreaser. Follow the detailer instructions for safe and effective stain removal. It's all about letting the product do the hard work before you scrub and rinse.

3.    The Baking Soda Paste Method

Don't underestimate the power of baking soda. Mix it with water to form a paste and spread it over your stain. Let it sit, then scrub and rinse. This method is particularly effective for lifting grease from porous surfaces.

4.    Pressure Washing

As we have discussed, the right pressure washer can be a game-changer. Set between 1500 to 3000 PSI, it can blast away surface stains, especially when combined with a degreasing solution. Just remember to test a small area first.

6. Specialized Chemical Absorbents

When dealing with oil and grease, sometimes specialized products are necessary. These absorbents are formulated for concrete and stone surfaces, lifting stains without damaging the material. Apply, wait, and then remove as instructed for best results.


Persistence Pays Off


Don't get discouraged if a stain doesn't disappear on the first try. Some stains are tough and might need a few rounds of treatment. Stay patient and keep at it.


Handling Cleaning Chemicals

Always gear up with gloves and safety glasses when handling chemicals. And remember to test any cleaning method on a small area first, ensuring it won’t harm your concrete or uni-stone surfaces.
