Rust Stained Concrete
Rust stains are a common problem on concrete surfaces. Rust occurs whenever metals are exposed to air and moisture. Rusty tools, lawn furniture, or equipment left or stored on concrete surfaces can create messy and long-lasting stains.
Common causes of rust stains on concrete:
- Lawn and garden fertilizer containing iron
- Metal gardening tools, watering cans, downspouts or decorative garden items
- A wagon, wheel barrow, bicycle, lawn mower, automobile, trailer, or golf cart
- Sprinklers and high-iron water
The water in certain geographic areas contains iron and other metals and minerals. If the water over-sprays onto concrete surfaces, rust stains will result. Lawn and garden fertilizers contain iron, the element that causes rusting. Fertilizers often stain concrete because the iron in them oxidizes and leaves rust behind. While sprinklers and fertilizer are the most common causes, by no means are they the only culprits of rust stains on concrete.
Tools, equipment, and vehicles, if left on concrete surfaces, create plenty of possibilities for rust staining. Older metal parts may be rusting from exposure to the elements, and dripping rusty water. Vehicle batteries can corrode and drip a messy byproduct onto concrete. The white powdery material from batteries can usually be washed away, but often you are left with a brownish-red rust stain.
