Residential Concrete Cleaning


As we head into the year, don’t forget about the concrete surfaces at your home.  Our Charlotte pressure washing company will be full steam ahead cleaning concrete driveways, sidewalks, and patios in the next few months.  The reason for this is simple: Clean concrete not only looks fantastic but it is safer to walk on by being less slippery.  Algae, mildew and grime cause concrete surfaces to become slippery like a banana peel.  Keep accidents to a minimum by keeping your concrete and paver surfaces cleaned.

Concrete is a very porous material in reality, meaning it absorbs practically everything it comes in contact with. A professional cleaning service will flush these contaminants out by penetrating deep into the pores of the concrete for a thorough, professional clean! Topical stains like leaf and acorn spots can be eliminated at the end with a quality concrete brightening agent.  This technique will eliminate the stains completely from your concrete surfaces.  Pressure washing itself will not remove all visible stains.  You must use several tricks of the trade to made it perfect.


Concrete cleaning involves professional cleaning agents, surface cleaning machines, and a heavy final rinse.  When concrete is cleaned strictly with water and high pressure, the results are sub par at best.  A few problems with this method: 1) No detergents were used so the contaminants will come back quickly.  2) There will be streaks on your concrete (zebra stripes we call them) that won’t look good when you finish.  You can see our concrete cleaning page here.

When Zap It Wash cleans your concrete surfaces these marks will be gone completely and your concrete will stay clean much longer as well.  This is beneficial in maintaining your property for the long term.  Never clean your concrete surfaces with high pressure alone as this will be a short term solution at best.  Trust us on that.


Concrete is an amazing surface that will last years at your home.  With the proper maintenance you can enjoy a clean and dependable surface for driving on as well as relaxing on during those pleasant evenings!
