Examples of good concrete cleaners include pH-neutral cleaners, alkaline cleaners, acidic cleaners, specialty cleaners and enzymatic cleaners. Each of these cleaners is designed to clean and remove different types of contamination from concrete surfaces.
pH-neutral cleaners are designed to clean interior sealed concrete surfaces that have no embedded dirt. These cleaners can also be used to clean interior and exterior unsealed concrete with no major dirt contamination. Alkaline concrete cleaners are ideal for eradicating grease, oil and other hydrocarbon-based stains found on concrete.
Acidic concrete cleaners are used to remove dirt, stains and contamination that are soluble in acidic solution. Enzymatic cleaners have active enzymes that help break down stains and contamination from concrete surfaces. Specialty cleaners are formed from any combination of the aforementioned concrete cleaners are used to remove specific types of stains or contamination.
