As a Top Rated Local® pressure washing business, we know that it takes a lot of hard work to keep a large commercial building looking sharp all year round. Between dirt and grime that accumulate during Tampa’s rainy season, to the efflorescence that plagues all types of masonry when the sun finally comes out, there are a lot of challenges to keeping a commercial building clean. While you might be able to live with a few smudges of dirt and the white powdery film associated with efflorescence, rust stains are one thing that business owners simply can’t stand.
Where Should You Look For Rust Stains?
Rust stains can appear in any number of places on and around a commercial building. Sometimes it manifests as deep red spots on the sidewalks. Other times it will appear as brown stains around windows, or where railings and fire escapes attach to the building. Rust stains can also appear on building roofs where chimneys or air vents are installed.
What Causes Rust Stains?
Rust stains can appear on concrete surfaces for many different reasons. One of the most common reasons is that aggregate mixed into the concrete can contain iron oxide. When this iron is exposed to water and air, it oxidizes and turns into rust. Rusting metal furniture, nails and screws, plumbing pipes, and other elements of a building that are in poor condition can also cause this nasty red water to drip down exterior walls, causing an unsightly mess.
How Can Rust Stains Be Removed?
If rust stains are causing you distress, and making customers reluctant to patronize your business, we’ve got some good news for you. Pressure washing can completely eliminate the appearance of rust stains from your sidewalk, concrete floor, brick, or exterior walls.
