Have you been asked by a client, “Can you remove rust stains?” What is your answer in those cases? Are you confident your technique and chemical choice is effective enough to make a noticeable difference?
Golf courses, living communities, restaurants, etc., where there’s a super fertilized green lawn chances are some examples of where you may find some rusty concrete. Iron in the fertilizer works wonders on the grass, but can leave terrible rust stains if spread over concrete. The client may have already tried something to remove it without good results. Noticing this opportunity can be a great upsell. Most rust jobs are fairly easy with little tools needed. There’s a lot of rust removing products out there and techniques but the most effective that I can personally say would be Rust Remover Plus.
You can remove rust and brighten the concrete, pavers, stone, brick, siding, awnings, as well as a host of other surfaces with just a pump up chemical sprayer. For concrete: Using one gallon of Rust Remover Plus can cover up to 200 square feet. This product can be mixed with at 1:5 or applied straight based on the severity of the stain. We recommend to test a small area to determine the dilution needed for each rust removal job. Wet the area down with water first, spray Rust Remover Plus and let dwell for up to 10 minutes or so. Brushing with a stiff bristle brush before the surface dries is helpful for getting it to soak deeper in the pores of the concrete. Rinse the area and allow to dry to reveal your work. In some cases a second treatment may be needed.
Rust Remover Plus is sold in 16 ounce, 1 gallon, and 5 gallon sizes. It’s also a great concrete cleaner and brightener. My favorite chemical in our arsenal absolutely has to be Rust Remover Plus. If you haven’t heard of it I highly recommend to check it out.
