Paint stains are an unavoidable consequence of getting your home painted. You are deemed to leave a few stains here and there, no matter how much you try. Out of these, the ones left on the entrance are the most noticeable.
Every other day somebody comes into your home asking whatever happened out there, and you are left with embarrassment while telling them you hot the house painted. Removing such stains can be a headache for most people because of the grooves and the unbelievable hard work required.
Furthermore, removing paint from your concrete porch means you have to rub every inch of it with a brush to eradicate it. Hence, many porches in the States are left looking like somebody had a paintball fight just recently.
How Do You Solve It?
With Christmas just around the corner, you would want your house to be as squeaky, and your porch is a reflection of your home. There is absolutely no reason why it may be scarred with paint residual.
So how do you remove paint from your concrete porch? Here are some steps:
Is it poured concrete, mortared concrete, or concrete with a coating of stucco.
If it’s poured concrete, it can sustain mechanical cleaning techniques but, if it’s not, then mechanical cleaning will ruin your home, so not recommended.
Check if it’s adhered nicely, or are there bubbles? Is it peeling or scraping easily?
If your floor is old and you think water won’t ruin it, use a pressure washer.
If the paint stain doesn’t cover a big area of your patio, use chemicals to brush the paint off. However, deal with it carefully. To remove paint from your concrete porch, you’ll have to apply the acid directly via a sponge or a piece of cloth.
