Stamped concrete is an amazing addition to your outdoor patio, driveway, or other hardscapes. It brings design and intrigue while still being incredibly functional and durable. While most stamped concrete installations come with a sealant of some sort, it will still need regular cleaning to keep it looking its best. Find out some best ways to do that in today’s blog post, and visit our blog for more information on concrete cleaning. 

Basic Cleaning
Sweeping the surface of your concrete often will help keep it free of dirt. This should be done on a regular basis, after high traffic, and definitely after a storm to get rid of any debris. This can be done with a regular push broom.

The Extra Mile
Slightly less often, it’s a good idea to get in the habit of spraying your stamped concrete down. This will help get anything out from the cracks and crevices too. We recommend using a garden hose with a high-pressure sprayer attachment. After rinsing, use a mild detergent like liquid dish soap, mix with water and scrub through the stamped concrete with a push broom. Follow up with another spray rinse to remove any soap.

Pressure Washing
While you can pressure wash stamped concrete, we don’t recommend it. That’s because stamped concrete in particular has delicate aspects that can be damaged by pressure washing. If your concrete is still showing signs of dirt or wear-and-tear after following the steps above, gently pressure wash to remove stains. Don’t turn the pressure too high to avoid damage to the sealant or surface texture.

Spot Cleaning
All spills, particularly those containing oil, grease, or any other staining agent should be immediately wiped up and sprayed down if necessary.
