Green Chemicals for Removing Rust Stains from Concrete

Rust causes some of the most difficult to remove stains on hard surfaces such as concrete. The problem with these stains, besides their persistence, is their pervasiveness – rarely is concrete stained on just one little spot. If a drainpipe or other fixtures have resulted in the stain, chances are that you will need to clean along the entire length to eliminate the stains. To deal with these challenges, most contractors responsible for maintenance and cleaning use chemical-based strong detergents, which can damage the environment and be harmful to the user’s health. Green chemicals are a safe, simple alternative to these detergents.

Eco-Green® Concrete Cleaner with Rust Stain Remover, is a unique product offered by Daimer®. This cleaning solution, like other green chemicals offered by Daimer®, is biodegradable. It is non-toxic and non-flammable, and, therefore, safe to use and store. The Eco-Green® Concrete Cleaner works by breaking down the molecular bonds in rust (or iron oxide) stains. Once that completes, a pressure washer or hose can be used for washing away the stains.

Besides rust stain removal, the Eco-Green® Concrete Cleaner with Rust Stain Remover also removes grease, hydrocarbons, mud spatter, and other dirt on the surface. There are other green chemicals available from Daimer® that are used for cleaning walls, floors, pavements, sidewalks, basements, and other concrete surfaces. These chemicals derived from plants are made of food grade ingredients, which make it safe for use in hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and homes.

Green Chemicals for Cleaning Drains

Many people still use harmful cleaning chemicals for cleaning drains because they do not believe green cleaners are up to the task. More often than not, things that are washed down the drain tend to leave behind residue that can build up over time. A clog forms from different types of debris. It can be very tough if these kinds of clogs occur in bends in the pipe, as these parts are hard to clear out. For many people, harsh chemicals are usually called on to dissolve tough clogs in the drain.  However, new and improved green chemicals are just as effective in cleaning out drains.

Using toxic chemicals to clean out drains has many side effects. In many cases, the chemicals leave behind residue that corrodes the piping. A special formulas in Daimer®'s line of Eco-Green® green chemicals, called Commercial Drain Opener & Cleaner, is specially designed to tackle clogged drains safely. This cleaning formula is plant-based and works by attacking dirt and debris at a molecular level. By penetrating and breaking down dirt molecules from the inside, these green chemicals can help tackle clogs containing grease, hair, and food particles. Instead of simply masking bad odors, these cleaning products get to the root of the problem and break it down for easy removal.

Because these green cleaning products are plant-based, they are safe for the environment. This means that you do not have to worry about your drain contaminating the water supply or ground soil.
