Cleaning up a concrete spill

How to Remove Hardened or Splashed Concrete

Cleaning up a concrete spill doesn’t have to be hard work. When working on a project such as pouring a foundation, laying a patio or building a planter, there will be instances when concrete is accidentally spilt in unwanted places. However, depending on the condition, clean up differs slightly. Wet concrete is more easily cleaned up than if it has been allowed to set. Therefore ideally, you want to remove the spillage before it has time to set.

How to remove splashed concrete (wet Concrete)

 
  1. If the concrete is still damp, douse the area with water liberally to dilute it. Fill a bucket full of water and pour it directly onto the spill ensuring good coverage.
  2. Scrape up the spillage with a plastic putty knife whilst continuing to dilute the area with water to ensure the region stays wet. Scrape vigorously to remove the moistened cement, throwing the spilt pieces into another bucket for later disposal.
  3. Using a stiff-bristled brush, remove any remaining spillage. After that, cover with water if necessary to lift any remaining wet concrete. Repeat step 2 if excessive residue remains. Continue to brush, adding water until the spill is gone.

  How to Remove Hardened Concrete (Dried Concrete)

 
  1. Pour Fuze Products Concrete Remover onto the dried spill and allow it to soak in for 5 to 10 minutes. This product will react with the dried concrete, dissolving it and turnng it into a gel.
  2. Break up any remaining residue with a stiff-bristled brush or chisel. Start from the top of the spill and work toward the bottom. Do not start at the bottom or you may chip or scratch the floor underneath.
  3. If necessary add more Fuze Products Concrete Remover and repeat the process. Once the spillage has been cleared the area can then be cleaned down using fresh water from a hosepipe or bucket.
