Cleaning Your Concrete Benches
Concrete benches, similar to concrete flooring, are durable and made to withstand the elements. The various materials used for making of concrete benches vary from wood to stone. Concrete benches are very diverse, as they come in a variety of shapes and colors. As a result, people can chose from a wider range of concrete benches to suit both their tastes and budgetary needs. A very simple concrete bench can be constructed with easily available things like pieces of driftwood, old planks, squared logs or a couple of concrete blocks. You might consider replacing worn or dirty concrete benches. But before spending money on a new bench, clean the concrete benches to see if you can remove the stains. Remove cushions or pillows from the concrete bench. Sweep the bench with a broom to remove particles, such as dirt, dust, grass and leaves. Fill a bucket with warm, soapy water. Use a mild detergent and avoid solvents, such as ammonia.
Pour the warm, soapy water over the concrete benches, but leave a small amount in the bucket. Distribute the water evenly over the bench. Dip a strong abrasive sponge or a heavy-duty wire brush in the bucket and scrub the concrete bench to lift and remove stains. Rinse the concrete bench with a water hose. Dry the bench with a cloth or towel.
