Common Problems With Concrete and How to Address

ThemConcrete can suffer from all sorts of contaminants, requiring you to adjust your approach to cleaning these surfaces. Here are the common issues with concrete surfaces and how to clean them:

Driveway Pressure Washing

Dirt, Dust, and Debris

To begin, sweep off any loose dirt, dust, or debris. Use a 2,500-PSI pressure level to start, adjusting the intensity for more stubborn filth. The use of a laundry detergent may also be necessary. After applying the detergent and allowing it to sit for a few minutes, rinse it off using a 25-degree nozzle tip.

Mold and Mildew

Mold and mildew can significantly damage concrete driveways, so it’s important to address these growths before they get out of hand. Use a mold and mildew detergent and apply it with a brush on the concrete surface. An alternative solution is to use a mixture of household bleach and water. Allow it to soak for a few minutes to kill all the mold and mildew before rinsing it off using a 25-degree nozzle.

Oil, Grease, and Brake Fluids

Oil and grease naturally accumulate on a concrete driveway after some time. To get rid of these stains, use a degreaser or concrete cleaner on the concrete surface. Then, use a strong detergent to remove any remnants or stubborn oil stains. Rinse it off using hot water and a 2,500-PSI pressure level fitted with a 25-degree nozzle tip, adjusting as necessary.


Begin the rust removal process by cleaning the concrete driveway with soap and water. Lemon juice often works on minor rust stains. Let the juice sit on the driveway for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the acid to work its magic. For major rust stains, a rust remover with oxalic acid or trisodium phosphate may be necessary. Then, using a brush, scrub the stain away before rinsing it off using a 25-degree nozzle.

Tire or Skid Marks

Skid marks make for an unappealing driveway. To get rid of these, start by applying a degreaser directly on the tire or skid marks and let it sit for 30 minutes without allowing it to dry. Then, scrub the area using a stiff brush for a cleaner result. Finally, use a 2,500-PSI pressure washer and a 25-degree nozzle to wash off the solution.

How to Pressure Wash Driveways

While your driveway isn’t the most delicate area of your home, it still deserves expert cleaning performed with care.


Washh inspects the driveway for any cracks and hazards. This is done prior to washing to avoid further damages. We then provide you with a report and a quote to repair.


Make sure to clear your driveway of any debris and loose dirt, sweeping them away to create a blank canvas.


 Any doors, windows, or openings nearby should be covered to prevent water or detergent from entering your home.


Grease can negatively affect the outcome of pressure washing. As such, we spray a degreaser all over your driveway first, maintaining a distance of 6 inches, before scrubbing it onto the surface with a stiff brush.


It takes more than just water to effectively clean your driveway. Washh uses strong detergents that can knock contaminants from your driveway without compromising its quality. Spray the detergent all over your driveway, maintaining a distance of 8 to 18 inches. Allow this detergent to sit before washing it down.


 To effectively clean your concrete driveway without damaging it, it is recommended to use a 25-degree nozzle tip kept at a minimum of 8 inches from the surface. For more stubborn filth or stains, move the tip closer to about 3 to 4 inches from the surface.


No driveway pressure washing job is complete without the application of a waterproof sealer. A sealant can extend the lifespan of your concrete driveway, though it must stand for 24 hours without a car parked on its surface.


Apartment complexes with multiple driveways or parking lots can benefit from striping services. Striping serves as a visual guidance system of sorts for drivers, keeping them safe and preventing cars from scraping one another.
