Concrete can act as a hard sponge so cleaning prior to sealing concrete is advised.
Concrete Colour Systems CCS have two cleaning solutions suitable for use on both grey, coloured and decorative concrete and natural stone.
CCS HD Degreaser is a mild degreaser designed to remove dirt, grease, oils and fats.
CCS Citric Cleaner is designed to remove dirt, grease and mild efflorescence.
In both cases, apply to wet concrete following directions on the drum label or from the technical data sheet. Take care when cleaning with high pressure water and autoscrubbing machines as some equipment will be very abrasive and will damage the concrete surface.
For cleaning procedures for specific challenges such as bat droppings, please consult the CCS Helpline.
Maintenance and cleaning guides are available on request. Please contact the CCS Helpline for access to project specific guides.
