    Rejuvenating your concrete driveway

    Published on 24 January 2019, Thursday, 1:41 AM

    Dirt, oil and grime build-up on a driveway can be unsightly and a hassle to remove. However, cleaning concrete isn't a job which needs to be left to the professionals - with the right equipment and some spare time up your sleeve, you can revitalise your driveway cost efficiently and hassle free.

    Your local Kennards Hire will be able to assist you with essential equipment including specialised water blasters.

    A good acid cleaner, such as a muriatic solution, will help to remove stubborn stains and grease build-up on the driveway - always ensure that you wear head to toe safety gear when working with acid.

    Alternatively, ammonia and oven cleaner can also be used to remove remove stains and discolouration from concrete.

    Once you have applied the solution to the concrete, use an old broom to scrub the stains - stubborn marks may take a bit of elbow grease so be patient.

    If you haven’t achieved the desired result, it could be worthwhile hiring a walk-behind scrubber, available in a range of sizes from Kennards Concrete Care.

    A high-pressure water blaster works wonders for concrete cleaning - it will not only help remove the last of the dirt, but wash away all residue of your cleaning solution, which is especially important if you applied acid.
