3 Reasons to Clean Your Concrete

When boosting your home or business’s curb appeal, it’s easy to think of the landscaping and the buildings themselves as needing regular maintenance. But your concrete driveways and sidewalks are a huge part of what makes your property stand out, for better or worse.

Cleaning your concrete yourself is a difficult task, so hire a professional concrete cleaning service to do the hard work for you. Not only will your property look immaculate, but a professional cleaning team will also make your concrete safer.

The Clean ‘N Seal team has put together a few reasons why you should have your concrete professional cleaned on a regular basis.

1. Cracks

Along with being unsightly, cracks in your concrete can quickly grow out of hand and become a safety hazard. Minnesota weather plays a key role in how this happens as water seeps into your concrete, freezes, and expands. This causes your concrete to crack, and it gets worse every year if nothing is done.

With the right professional equipment, have your concrete pressure washed. A good service team will remove all debris, dirt, and grime from the top of your concrete and will clean out and repair any current cracks in your concrete.

For concrete that is less likely to crack in the first place, especially in Minnesota’s harsh climate, cover your concrete driveways and walkways with a quality sealant. Concrete sealing is the best way to prevent it from succumbing to water seepage and cracking.

2. Stains

With so much happening on your driveways, patios, and sidewalks, it’s inevitable that you’ll stain your concrete eventually. From car engine oil dripping on your driveway to grease leaking from your grill to your patio, stains accumulate over time. But those stains pose a slippery safety risk if not cleaned off.

To keep your concrete stain free and safer to walk, drive, cook, play on, have them professionally cleaned and sealed.

3. Growing Things

In Minnesota’s wet climate, you might notice mold, mildew, and algae growing on your concrete surfaces, including concrete swimming pool decks. Especially in areas of your property that are shady or don’t drain well, you can expect to see black, white, or tan discoloration to indicate mold and mildew growth or fuzzy green algae dimpling your concrete.

While gross, these organisms also make concrete slick and treacherous to walk on, and if left alone long enough can degrade the integrity of your concrete. Use a professional service to clean and seal your concrete as soon as you see signs of these growths.
