Stained and sealed concrete should be cleaned regularly to prevent dirt and stains from building up. Use a soft-bristled brush or a mop to clean the surface. Use a pH-neutral cleaner or a cleaner specifically designed for stained and sealed concrete. Avoid using harsh chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia, as they can damage the sealant.
Avoid abrasive cleaning tools
Avoid using abrasive cleaning tools, such as wire brushes or scrub pads, as they can scratch the surface of your stained and sealed concrete. This can lead to the loss of the sealant and reduce the longevity of the finish. Use a soft-bristled brush or a mop instead.
Reseal the surface
To protect your stained and sealed concrete surface from stains, dirt, and moisture, you should reseal it every two to three years or as recommended by the manufacturer. Resealing will help maintain the shine and color of your stained and sealed concrete while also preventing it from cracking and flaking.
Stained and sealed concrete surfaces are prone to staining, especially if they are in high traffic areas. To prevent stains, clean spills immediately, and avoid dragging heavy furniture or sharp objects across the surface. Use floor mats or area rugs in high traffic areas to protect the surface from wear and tear.
Prevent hard water deposits
Hard water deposits can build up on stained and sealed concrete surfaces over time, leaving behind unsightly white stains. To prevent the accumulation of hard water deposits, avoid using hard water to clean your stained and sealed concrete surfaces. Regular cleaning with a solution of white vinegar and water can also help dissolve any hard water deposits that may have formed on your stained and sealed concrete surface.
