What is so important about cleaning your concrete?

We live in a concrete jungle, as they say. The developed world is almost completely encased in concrete. Paved panoramic views and concrete landscapes have become a natural part of our lives to the point where we accept them as a constant. However, most of our associations with these surfaces involved dirty, stained concrete.

Gum and grime-covered walls in the subway, weather-worn pavement, and oil-stained parking lots are usually what comes to mind when we think about concrete surfaces. Dirty concrete seems like standard fair, so why clean it?

Keep your concrete in shape for longer.

Our cleaning process removes harmful contaminants that could erode your concrete over time. Once erosion sets in, the problem will only get worse without treatment, as porous damaged areas leave wide openings for water and other chemicals to rush in.

Protect the environment with Steamatic Pavement and Car Park Cleaning

From an environmental perspective, cleaning your concrete is a hugely important step towards maintaining a healthy planet. Streets, parking lots, and other concrete or paved surfaces are the single largest source of nonpoint source pollution. Consider that street pavement drinks up all manner of harmful chemical spills in an average day. Leaky car engines pass overhead all day long, and people are always discarding beverages or spilling oil in the street. It is thought that urban pavement is one of the largest carriers of metal and hydrocarbon pollution. Pavement is also a significant carrier of nutrient and pesticide run-off from landscapes and atmospheric sources. To make matters worse, pavement and concrete surfaces are usually exposed to considerable levels of urban watershed, since they are rarely protected from rainfall. This means that any pollutants being held by the porous concrete are being washed into more vulnerable areas like wells, water mains, ponds, and rivers.

Steamatic’s concrete and pavement cleaning service can safely remove all pollutants, while also taking care of ugly stains. Most companies’ concrete cleaning service starts and ends with sweeping and mechanical broom treatments, but Steamatic goes the extra mile. We use some of the best green-cleaning technology available. Our concrete and pavement cleaning process will bring out industrial-strength pressure washers and dry-ice blasting equipment to rid your parking lot or outdoor surfaces of any pollution in a safe and environmentally-sensitive style. These techniques mostly use various forms of water as their cleaning solution, with an eco-friendly emulsifying agent incorporated as needed.

Just a short note to say thank you for your good work at my favorite place in the world. It was much appreciated. Your staff were courteous and helpful at every turn. I have passed my remarks to the insurance company. Being out of my house for 3 months was very frustrating for me at the time and being 85 years old we seniors are not as flexible as we once were. Thanks to all involved.
