4 Steps to Remove Leaf Stains from Concrete Walkways


One of the best things about fall is the colorful foliage that’s all around. But while the beautiful leaves are nice to look at, they can create some problems around your home. One unfortunate side effect of falling leaves is concrete staining. While you can’t keep the trees from losing their foliage, you can do something to remove leaf stains that do show up on your concrete walkways, driveways, and sidewalks. While pressure washing is your best bet, Pressure Pros of the Carolinas wants to share some other steps you can take to remove these unsightly blemishes from your concrete:

  1. Apply household detergent – Take some detergent from your laundry room (powdered detergents work best) and pour it onto the stain. If your detergent contains bleach or ammonia, that’s even better.
  2. Scrub away – Grab a brush with stiff bristles and rub it over the surface of the stain. A little elbow grease goes a long way.
  3. Rinse – Rinse off the area with water. After the concrete dries, you should be able to notice a difference.
  4. Call a professional pressure washing company – Some stains can be tougher to remove than others. If the steps listed above don’t work for you, or if you’re hesitant to try DIY leaf stain removal, call us. Our concrete pressure washing services are the most effective way to remove these spots.
