Fertilizer rust stains comprise some the most powerful and embedded tough rust stains to eliminate. These stains are caused by chemical fertilizer granules that are left on concrete surfaces. Water causes the chemical pellets to basically soften on the concrete, and therefore the properties inside the chemical will cause deep rust stains on top of and inside of the concrete.

Using store bought acid concrete cleaners as a shot to eliminate these stains might cause further irreversible damage. What these rust removers generally do is cause what appears to be a white cloud around the stain from the oxalic acid. The actual stain continues to be there whereas the concrete around it's clean and therefore the surface paste of the concrete has been forever altered.

Battery Acid Rust Stains www.Front9Restoration.com 855-803-1133

Concrete Rust Stains may derive from a variety of sources, primarily from metals or fertilizers that contain iron. Most concrete rust does not travel over 1/16" deep into the concrete and stays in one basic location. A Battery Acid Rust Stain is an orange flash acid "burn" than might travel down your drive and into the walkway and curb. Flash acid burn seems similar to rust in appearance, but it's very different. Battery acid can cause orange stains which can penetrate up to 2" deep into the concrete. Typical sources are from golf cart and automobile batteries. Here is where the problem arises. Rust removal products were developed to dissolve the stain on the surface of the concrete, not deeply embedded orange "burn" stains.

Battery Acid Rust Stains

The problem with rust removers presently on the market is that they contain acids that "eat" the concrete. They strip the concrete of its cement paste and create a micro-aggregate or "etched" surface encompassing the orange acid burn. Once these cleaners eat the cement, they take a borderline amount of the stain with it and cause deep, permanent damage to your concrete. The bulk of concrete rust removers developed to eliminate rust will discolor the concrete, stain it white or would possibly even create additional orange colors. This is often not a fascinating solution.
