Acid Staining is a great way to enhance your concrete surfaces. You can acid stain interior spaces, exterior spaces, garage floors, etc. When an Acid Stain is applied to concrete surfaces, it enhances the natural defects, chips, cracks, etc. If that's not the look you are going for, you can grind the concrete or add a micro-topping to prevent defects from showing through. Call 602.373.1515 for more information or to request a free estimate to make your concrete look like this!

Before and After: Scottsdale Pavilions Paver Intersection

Here is a before and after photograph showing what a difference a little steam and sealant can make. These 30 year old pavers at the Scottsdale Pavilions in Scottsdale, Arizona were almost black with dirt and grime. After cleaning the pavers with rotary-style surface cleaners and pressure washing wands, we came back and applied a sealant to enhance and protect the pavers. Reasons for sealing pavers can include:

1. Creating a surface that is more resistant to tire marks, oil, rust, efflorescence, grease, food stains, spills, gum, etc.
2. Making the surface easier to clean.
3. Sealing and locking in paver sand.
4. Acting as a deterrent to weed growth.
5. Enhancing the overall appearance of the surface by protecting the natural surface and colors from fading in the Arizona sun.

Pressure Washing Driveway

Pressure Washing
Originally uploaded by ACME POWERWASH

Be careful about who you choose to clean your concrete and other flatwork. ACME POWERWASH has over 12 years experience pressure washing in Arizona and we have seen plenty of damaged surfaces because homeowners and business owners chose to go with a cheap, disreputable "one-man band" company. Some of these "companies" use cheap or old equipment, cold water, and 0 degree tips which can carve out the "snail trails" you may have seen before on concrete surfaces.

A good pressure washing company should have clean, well maintained equipment, several years of experience, quality materials and chemicals, and carry all the appropriate insurance.

The pressure washing business is no different than any other industry, and the old adage applies: if it seems too good to be true, than it probably is. If a pressure washer is a lot cheaper than other bids you are receiving, they are probably cutting corners somewhere, and you could end up paying the price-even though you thought you were getting a deal.

Garbage Dumpsters

Steam and high pressure works well for washing and cleaning up garbage dumpsters and the concrete pads around trash areas. Grease and spills build up fast in these areas at restaurants, hotels, retail stores, and many other locations.

Watch out for maintenance crews using cold water pressure washers. They can't achieve the same results you can get with steam and hot water, and often will damage (pit out) the concrete while trying to get out tough stains. We always use steam and hot water to blast away the gunk and grime that builds up around garbage dumpsters and trash receptacles.

Grime, Grease, Paint, Tire Marks, Spills, Etc

All Gone.

Pressure washing was all it took to clean up this mess on a driveway and garage floor in Peoria, Arizona. This before and after photo shows the difference pressure washing can make to a residential garage with years of built up stains on the concrete. In this photo you can see spills, grease, paint, tire marks, and years of built up grime. Power washing the surface was able to clean up 99% of the stains, even though concrete is like a giant sponge that soaks everything up. We also cleaned up years of built up oil stains, a hard water stain on the front patio, and grease from a barbecue grill on the back patio. Visit our website to see more before and after photos.

This is a photo of 4 concrete squares outside a local pharmacy in Peoria, Arizona. We pressure washed the bottow two squares earlier in the day to show the store manager the difference in quality between our service and his existing service. You can see how the other pressure wash company isn't removing the stains left behind by gum. Our machines use hot steam at 300 degrees and 3500psi of pressure to clean the concrete without pitting it out.

efflorescence (ěf'lə-rěs'əns)
A whitish, powdery deposit on the surface of rocks or soil in dry regions. It is formed as mineral-rich water rises to the surface through capillary action and then evaporates. Efflorescence usually consists of gypsum, salt, or calcite.

According to

ACME POWERWASH technicians steam cleaned and pressure washed the exposed aggregate driveway, walkways, and entry porch of this home in Scottsdale yesterday. Using high-pressure steam enabled us to clean the mineral deposits right off. Check out our webpage for more information about us and the services that we offer.
