Tips - The concrete plant stone in the garden
With concrete plant stone in the garden it can concern floor coverings, stairway steps, however, also, e.g., around flower bowls. These plant pieces are worked on as a rule in the plant super flatly, however, receive no additional surface treatment.
Newly delivered and moved disks can– partly by the storage– different paints show. As soon as steady Weathering of the view surfaces can enter, the surfaces equal themselves. Concrete plant stone in his varied forms and surface treatments is lasting, continual and easy-care.
Contamination, which usually occur in the open pass, not into the stone and are only superficial. Even for unusual cases such as entry of oil, grease and colors here are suggestions.
The following tips show: Cast stone is easy in the garden!
Tip 1 - Surface treatment with freshly moved or transfered plant pieces
It is recommendable, freshly moved or transfered plant pieces by an additional surface treatment too hydrophobic. Hydrophobic is called: Treat with silicones to reduce the water admission most to a great extent. The plant pieces in which water abperlt, less dirt also bind. Also the alga infestation is prevented or decreased. Thus frost and frost rope salt permanence are also improved. Applying these Water Repellents can follow through spraying, but also with the paintbrush. With applying of silicones neither the paint nor the other appearance of the surface changes.
Tip 2 - Removing Efflorescence
In piles of compound plant pieces, e.g., disks, the Efflorescence which stand out as a whitish layer can show. They originate in the natural confirmation trial of the concrete. They can originate once from the own water, to the other, however, also by foreign water. In any case, is transported while evaporating the water Caiciumhydroxyd to the surface which crystallizes under admission of aerial carbonic acid to the Caiciurncarbonat. One calls this Efflorescence. Nevertheless, they are no quality defect of the plant pieces. Efflorescence become from soft rainwater with the time angelöst and are washed. Actual a quick removal of this color veil desirably, one can them with cleaning agent, as they are described in tip 4.
Tip 3 - Removal of normal soiling
Normal-dirty plant pieces can be cleaned with a hard broom, maybe with the aid of fluent water, perfectly if the time intervals are not chosen between the cleaning processes too largely. Here it behaves like with the autowashing: the longer the time becomes pushed, the more intensely the cleaning must be. If normal soiling is so tied by earth and dust that they are to be removed with an easy brushing off no more, one also can additions, as they are used with the budgetary care, sensibly. The additions are to be adapted to the pollution level. Also here a flawless cleaning is achieved with brushes and linking up flooding with clear water.
Tip 4 - Removing sticking dirt
If stronger soiling lies, as well as Mortar leftovers, rust, algae or mosses before, the cleaning with acid-containing stone cleaners must be carried out. Because it does not concern as a rule with concrete products in the garden fine-polished surfaces, minimum attacks on the concrete surface are inessential. Nevertheless, here will become provided that the plant pieces to be worked on before from loose dirt with a broom are cleaned and before the real treatment with water well weten. To the real cleaning process with brushes and cleaning agents good rinsing with clear water should walk along. This removed not only the rests from the concrete surfaces, but it dilutes the cleaning agents in such a way that adjoining plantation suffers no damage.
Tip 5 - Removing oily or fatty soiling
These pollutions as well as paint, varnish, tar ect. must be removed with solution-containing cleaners. The products which make such pollutions water-dissolvable are especially effective and light to use.
In case of a cleaning must be taken into consideration that cleaning agents can attack skin and clothes. Especially are face to protect hands and feet.
