Common Causes of Rust

It can be helpful to understand what causes rust in the first place. If you don’t have it now or haven’t done an inspection lately, you should check your property for this problem before it causes further damage. Metal may get rust if it’s exposed to water and air. Lawn furniture and equipment can rust if left out in the elements, leaving a stain on your driveway, sidewalk or patio. Garden tools and other items may also get rusty if not put away. Lawn fertilizers often include iron, which is what causes rust in the first place. If the fertilizer gets on concrete, it may cause a stain when the iron oxidizes. Some water contains iron as well, and it may leave rust stains when you irrigate the lawn. You may notice it wherever the spray hits on other surfaces, such as your fence, sidewalk or driveway.
