Chemical Suggestions for Carbon Based stains
Permalink  
 


What chemicals have been found effective in getting heavy road grit, soot and petroleum based grime?

Organic stains are no problem, but the last time we tackled a two story full vinyl siding on the other end of town, it was a bear!

 

So, we are all ears

AC has a prooduct called terra wash that works pretty well on non organic stuff. I'm using on concrete at bank drive-throughs.

I use a product from Spray nine called Grez-Off that's great for oil and fat based stains and is biodegradable

Look for a butyl based product I think that terra wash is butyl based.

Russ from Southside has some truck cleaning detergents that should work well for soot/road grit.

Check out Brown Derby, I have seen it in action and it was literally amazing. It was taking zebra stripes off gutters, cleaning vinyl and removing grease from concrete without any pressure. I think the Soap Warehouse carries it.

More than one cleaner is sometimes required. I use two products on these types of grime,..I use Purple Power,..same as gutter cleaner,..and what that doesn't remove, I use Hydrochloric Acid mixed to the strength required. Purple Power works best when applied with a sprayer,...as does the acid. These jobs are also easier when it's 80-100 degrees and HUMID.
