Cleaning Concrete, Sidewalks, Steps and Brickwork

  

Concrete, a surface that can always be slippery... A happy customer, in Washington, cleaned his sidewalk and sent us this photo, so we could brag. Concrete can be a trickier surface to clean, especially for new customers. It is porous, so liquid quickly soaks right in. It is a rougher texture, so things can really get a strong foothold in the nooks and crannies. However, once you master your technique, the time saved and the ease of cleaning gets everyone excited. Here's some common advice to help everyone get the same results that he did, shown above. Start when your concrete is dry, preferably in the morning so that the concrete surface is cooler and you have less evaporation. Clean a 2 foot patch that lets you get familiar with how much 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner it will take and how long you have to leave it sit. The general rule of thumb is to saturate the area enough so that the cleaner pools on the surface. You will probably see it go white and bubbly, and it should appear clean, before you rinse everything away. This will take about 15 minutes. This is the longest time needed for 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner to clean, simply because of this type of surface; it's porous and it's rough. Once you are confident with the process then you can tackle the bigger areas, knowing when and where to re-apply more cleaner, if necessary. You will notice that there is grass all along the sidewalk, above. 30 SECONDS Outdoor Cleaner is designed to be used around all your lawns and landscaping. Once it goes into the soil, it biodegrades, so its perfect for virtually any setting in your yard.

  

Speaking of different settings... here's another area,  in Washington. The cleaning process is the same for this type of project too.

  

And this customer is having fun in Illinois. All he said was "WOW! This stuff really does work!" when he sent us these photos. Cleaning this brick is the same process as cleaning the concrete because they are both porous and rougher than other surfaces.
