How to clean discoloured cement and concrete

What causes this discoloration? 

Cement, sand, and stone used for concrete in construction is a reliable and durable building material. However, the forces of nature will always be stronger. Concrete is porous to water and water may have various aesthetic effects on concrete. The greatest is the discoloration of concrete.

The Solution

Concrete cleaners

These imported cleaning products revive soiled surfaces back to their original level of cleanliness. It is recommended that once the surface has been cleaned, a protective sealant should be applied. This further prolongs the appearance of the surface.

These cleaners are solvent-free, non-hazardous and some are up to 90% biodegradable.

Concrete protectors

These products will protect the concrete from water, which will prevent discoloration from happening. These products penetrate deep into the pores of the concrete surface which ensures no blistering or flaking over time.

Concrete colourants

Note that these are not paints. These products have been developed to penetrate the concrete to protect and rectify/renew or change colour from within. The concrete will still look, feel, and behave like concrete.
