Hi everyone

I know this isnt the right place to post this, but i didnt know where else to stick it so...

Does anyone have any tips on how to remove burnout marks from concrete?

Expecting landlord in a few days and wouldnt mind getting rid of a few blackies in the shed.

cheers
Tim

Yrs ago when myself and a mate had our house inspection we scrubbed the floor then painted it, after the inspection the landlord actually reinbursed us the money for the paint

Buffing it off has been the traditional method for disposing of such evidence....

A friend of mine used some sort of Acid (I think hydrochloric), and then a high pressure cleaner. The only problem was that it cleaned too much, and the concrete was noticeably cleaner where he had washed it..

One other thing, if its in the shed maybe get some second hand carpet and put it down, to hide your “art workâ€￾
Good luck.

just to let you know... it takes ALOT of scrubbing to get rubber out of virgin concrete... and then it is very noticeable that you have been scubbing... you've been warned lol.


Good luck indeed

Just hire a really good high pressure water cleaner for half the day. It will take all of about 10min to remove them.
