Concrete Surfaces We Can Clean

These are the difference concrete surfaces we can clean along with a little bit of helpful information for each type of service.

Sidewalks and walkways: are exposed to constant foot traffic and the elements, making them prone to dirt, dust, mud, and debris buildup. If not cleaned regularly, these surfaces can become slippery and unsafe for pedestrians. Additionally, unattended growth of mold and mildew can lead to unsightly discoloration and contribute to a hazardous walking environment.

Decks and pool decks: are outdoor living spaces that often experience heavy use, especially during warmer months. Over time, these surfaces can accumulate a variety of stains and grime, including hard water stains, mold, mildew, algae and rust stains. Regular cleaning is essential to maintain their appearance and ensure a safe, enjoyable environment for your family and guests.

Driveways: are frequently subjected to heavy use including oil and automotive fluid spills, tire or skid marks, and dirt, dust, and algae buildup. These stains not only detract from the curb appeal of your home but can also pose safety risks if left untreated, for example, an algae covered driveway is very slippery when wet! Regular cleaning can help prevent surface degradation and maintain the structural integrity and appearance of your driveway.

Retaining Walls: Retaining walls are often an integral part of your landscaping.  They can surround garden beds, line your driveway, hold back a slope for your backyard patio, or surround your backyard firepit.  If your retaining walls are covered in dirt, grime, and algae they will look unsightly.  We can quickly and safely clean retaining walls made of concrete, block, or stone.

Mineral deposits and hard water stains on concrete: Can occur on any concrete surface exposed to water, such as pool decks, patios, and walkways. These stains can leave a chalky white residue that detracts from the appearance of your concrete surfaces. Professional concrete cleaning services can effectively remove these deposits, leaving your surfaces looking clean and refreshed.

Discoloration and Rust Stains: Can occur on concrete surfaces due to various factors, including exposure to the elements, water runoff, and contact with metal objects. These stains can be challenging to remove without the proper equipment and cleaning solutions. Professional concrete cleaning services can effectively address these stains, restoring the appearance of your surfaces and preventing further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cleaning Concrete Surfaces

The frequency of power washing your concrete surfaces depends on the level of dirt and grime buildup and your personal preference. Generally, it is recommended to power wash concrete surfaces every 1-2 years to maintain a clean and appealing appearance.  If you live in a very dusty area or your concrete surfaces are surrounded by trees, shrubs, or gardens, you may find the organic debris builds up quickly, which contributes to algae growth and mold and mildew.

If done correctly and by a professional, power washing is generally safe for your concrete surfaces. However, using too much pressure or using the wrong nozzle can potentially damage the concrete, causing pitting or chipping.  If there are areas of your concrete that are already cracked, or breaking, or otherwise damaged, then careful attention to these areas can prevent further damage.

Power washing alone may not remove oil stains from concrete surfaces. Pre-treatment with a degreaser or oil stain remover is often necessary before power washing to break down and lift the oil stains.  In some cases the stains are too old or have penetrated too deep into the concrete to be cleaned.  We can never guarantee complete and total removal of oil stains but we can often reduce the severity of their unsightly appearance.

Yes, you can power wash concrete surfaces that have been painted or sealed. However, it is essential to use a lower pressure setting and a wider spray pattern or a proper concrete surface cleaner to avoid damaging the paint or sealant. We will always test in an inconspicuous area before cleaning the entire surface.

While it is possible to power wash concrete surfaces yourself, hiring a professional ensures the job is done correctly and safely. Professionals like Viking Softwash have the experience and equipment necessary to clean your concrete surfaces without causing damage. 

The typical residential power washing system that a homeowner can buy doesn't have the right nozzles, the right pressure, or a proper surface cleaner to make the job quick and efficient.  For example, a concrete driveway that might take you 3 or 4 hours to clean with a typical homeowner power washer can be cleaned with a professional surface cleaner in an hour.  Not too mention that you'll need to store that power washer for the one or two times a year you might actually use it.
