Whether it is on metal, concrete, or other surfaces, removing rust is no easy task. Believe it or not, rust can be removed from all types of surfaces using pressure washing services.
Rust is often associated with decay and aging. It can make your most valuable appliance or property look old or even become unusable.
What Causes Rust?
Rusting is a natural process that occurs when iron (contained in metal) comes into contact with water and oxygen. This causes the metal to become weak and ultimately deteriorate.
Effects of Rust
Personal items such as vehicles, buildings, equipment, and other property often fall prey to conditions where corrosion can occur. The problem only becomes worse in a commercial setting as not only do the affected objects begin to deteriorate, but the aesthetic appeal of those items can quickly diminish leaving an unprofessional and unmaintained appearance. It is always best to deal with rust as soon as it is detected to swiftly eliminate the problem.
Some surfaces such as concrete and brick are harder to deal with when they are affected by rust stains because of how porous these materials are. With a building that has metal siding or other metal exterior materials, rust usually starts from a crevice and spreads across the entire wall if it is not contained immediately.

DIY vs Professional Rust Removal
Sometimes homeowners tend to prefer DIY rust removal solutions. These might include manual scrubbing or scraping that is much more time consuming and inefficient compared to pressure washing. When using this method, there are often heavy duty chemicals involved that can be tricky to use correctly and safely. They are also not so friendly to the environment.
Going for mechanical or manual brushing will not be as effective because of the small surface area coverage. This can also be an expensive option compared to pressure washing.
What our method does best is clean surfaces much faster at a cheaper cost. At the same time, it also clears the surface for new paint. This will eliminate the need for additional blasting materials that may lead to an increase in cost.
