HOW TO REMOVE RED CLAY STAINS FROM CONCRETE

There are several methods you can try to remove red clay stains from concrete. Here are some options:

  1. Use a pressure washer: A pressure washer can be an effective tool for removing red clay stains from concrete. Start by sweeping or blowing off any loose dirt or debris from the surface. Then, set the pressure washer to a medium to high pressure setting and hold the nozzle about 6 inches from the stains. Work in a back and forth motion, starting at the top of the stain and moving downward. Rinse the area thoroughly with water to remove the stains and any remaining dirt or debris.
  2. Use a commercial concrete cleaner: There are many commercial products available specifically designed for cleaning and removing stains from concrete surfaces. Follow the instructions on the product label, and use a scrub brush or pressure washer to work the cleaner into the stains. Rinse the area thoroughly with water to remove the cleaner and the stains.
  3. Use a Mud May Day Stain Remover: For really tough set in red clay stains, use this professional chemical that will remove the red clay stain. Simply follow the directions on the jug, apply with a garden sprayer. Let dwell, and rinse away at medium pressure with a pressure washer

Will Bleach Remove Red Clay Stains?

Since red mud and clay is not “organic growth” bleach will not remove or clean red clay stains from concrete. You will need a cleaner like Mud May Day to remove red clay stains from concrete. Applying bleach may kill the organic growth on the concrete, and pressure may rinse some surface dirt from the stain away, but deep set in red clay stains in concrete cannot be removed by using bleach.

It’s important to use caution when working with cleaning products, and to follow the instructions on the product label. Be sure to wear protective gloves and goggles, and work in a well-ventilated area.
