These cleaners tackle the toughest stains and residues on concrete surfaces with specific design. These products can help you prepare a concrete floor for painting or remove tough oil and grease stains.
In addition to our detergents, we also offer environmentally safe acidic cleaners. These cleaners remove weak and powdery material that forms on new concrete surfaces called concrete laitance. Our cleaners remove laitance, improving concrete’s porosity for better adhesion of coatings and textures.

Cleaning concrete before coating is important for several reasons:

1. Surface Preparation: Cleaning the concrete surface removes dirt, dust, oil, grease, and other contaminants that can interfere with the adhesion of the coating. A clean surface ensures better bonding between the concrete and the coating material.

2. Adhesion: Coatings adhere better to clean concrete surfaces. If the surface is not properly cleaned, the coating may not bond well, leading to peeling, flaking, or premature failure of the coating.

3. Durability: A clean surface allows the coating to form a strong and durable bond with the concrete. This helps to enhance the longevity and performance of the coating, protecting the concrete from damage and wear.

4. Appearance: Cleaning the concrete surface before coating improves the overall appearance of the finished product. It helps to remove stains, residues, and imperfections, resulting in a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing surface.

5. Porosity: Cleaning the concrete can also increase its porosity, allowing the coating to penetrate and adhere better. This is particularly important for coatings that require good penetration and adhesion, such as epoxy or polyurethane coatings.

Overall, cleaning concrete before coating is essential to ensure proper adhesion, durability, and appearance of the coating, as well as to enhance the overall performance and longevity of the concrete surface.
