Tips for Cleaning and Maintaining Precast Products


With proper construction based on ASTM requirements for cast stone concrete products, precast is virtually maintenance-free.


Maintenance equipment needed includes a commercial concrete cleaner containing a chlorine solution, rubber gloves, a soft brush, and a garden hose.


After spraying the cast stone thoroughly with water, the concrete cleaner is carefully applied using rubber gloves. A soft brush can be effective in removing stubborn stains.


Corrosion will be prevented when open joints and surfaces with sealants do not come in contact with the cleaner.


Avoidance of metal brushes, acids, power washing, and sandblasting techniques will prevent damage to the cast stone and keep it pristine and looking new.
