Read on if you need rust removal in Jackson MS, or surrounding areas! Every homeowner knows what rust looks like. Rust is an orange color compound. Rust forms when iron, oxygen, and moisture are present. Its composition or chemical name is iron oxide (Fe2O3). Its shade can vary from dark orange to bright yellow. It can form on your concrete driveway, your concrete patio, your vinyl siding, and even the bricks. Those pesky orange stains will ruin the curb appeal of your house or a driveway. Sometimes rusty stains form when water from sprinklers reacts with bare metal found in various hardware. Other times it’s rusty nails or metal objects left on a wet driveway. Occasionally the metal gutters will start oxidizing inside, and the water runs will discolor the vinyl siding where it drips on the surface.
Will a power washer remove rust? Not without a use of strong chemicals. Pressure washing rust with common household detergents will yield no results. The good news is, in addition to other other pressure washing services, we are fully capable of removing the rust from most porous and non-porous surfaces and we possess experience to do it safely. Firstly, we will wet the surface. Secondly, we will apply the chemicals using a pump-up sprayer. Lastly, once reaction complete a neutralizing solution is sprayed on and rinsed thoroughly. The process is relatively simple but utmost care must be taken. If left to dwell for too long, the chemicals can discolor the concrete and instead of the orange or yellow posts you will have unsightly white spots.
