How to Clean Concrete Floors in a Garage or Warehouse

Cleaning concrete floors in warehouses or garages is one of those tasks that typically goes ignored. These concrete floors are usually very susceptible to dirt; for instance, floors in garages and warehouses tend to harbor dirt, rust stains, motor oils, grease, and unwanted paint spills. Concrete is porous, and grime tends to get easily embedded if not cleaned often. As a result, these floors require routine cleaning.

Do My Concrete Floors Need Pressure Washing?

Dirt, oil, and grease buildup are inevitable in warehouses and garages. Since concrete floors found in warehouses are exposed to all manner of dirt, cleaning can be quite difficult. Getting the right cleaning equipment and technique is crucial for an effective wash. Pressure washing is an excellent way to get your concrete floors exceptionally clean. Here are the reasons why you need pressure washing: • It helps maintain your garage floor's lifespan by reducing wear and tear damage. • Pressure washing saves time that would have otherwise been used to scrub concrete floors by hand. A pressure washer can help you speed up the process because it has a higher cleaning power and uses less water. • In addition, pressure washing can almost eliminate any kind of buildup on concrete floors.

How Does Pressure Washing Work?

A pressure washer has a water inlet, an electric motor, a water pump, a high-pressure hose, and a cleaning attachment. Its function is to simply pump water and detergent with the help of an electric motor. It uses a narrow, high-pressure jet of water to blast dirt off surfaces. The water, traveling at high speed, hits the dirty concrete floor with high kinetic energy, thus effectively removing debris. Here is a summary of the basic mechanism:

• Once the pressure washer is turned on, the electric motor powers it. • Water is pumped from the tap and is filtered on its way in. • Detergent and water flow in through two different hoses. • The pump draws in the water and detergent and mixes them. • The pump accelerates the mixture to produce high pressure. • When the trigger is pulled, the detergent sprays from the narrow exit nozzle.

• Additionally, there is also the option to use a surface cleaner, which is an accessory that can be used in place of a wand and looks a bit like a lawn mower, for cleaning concrete.

Do My Floors Need Hot or Cold Pressure Washing?

The choice between hot or cold water pressure washing depends on the stubbornness of the stains. For instance, your choice will depend on the type of dirt to remove. Cold and hot pressure washing techniques work in much the same way. The difference is that cold pressure washing uses cold water to remove dirt or debris from concrete floors, while its counterpart uses hot water. However, hot pressure washing has an added advantage when used to wash concrete floors. It is recommended to remove stubborn motor oils and grease stains since it cuts through them quickly and is much more effective. Hot water penetrates grime leaving your floors spotlessly clean. Some other jobs best suited for hot pressure washing include stripping paint off the floors and removing mildew and molds. If your floors are not quite dirty, opt for cold pressure washing. The technique is better suited for removing dirt, dust, or mud caked on concrete floors.
