Unfortunately, rust is one of those things that happen naturally, but can be a nightmare to remove yourself. Nothing looks worse than having a fence, driveway, railing, or part of your house covered with rust. Regular household cleaners won’t get rid of the stains, so what should you do? What are your options? If you need proper rust removal, the team at Natures Elements can help.
Generally speaking, rust is the result of water exposure or damage. Concrete, for example, is a very porous material, meaning that it can easily absorb water from overflowing gutters, snowfalls, or rainstorms. Then, once the poor weather conditions cease and are exposed to warmer temperatures again, the water will oxidize, then rust.
Likewise, if your home was built on red clay, then it’s more prone to suffer from rust. The majority of soil in the Chicago area is made of clay. In other words, homeowners in Illinois have a greater chance of experiencing some sort of rust damage than in other parts of the country. When you need the right top-rated rust removal, the team at Natures Elements is here to help. All of our rust removal services come highly rated throughout the state, and we only use cleaners that are designed to get out the toughest stains.
When it comes to rust removal, some companies will tell you to use muriatic acid. However, all that does is destroy your concrete, leading to more issues and costs for you down the line. We know the ins and outs of rust removal so you can trust that we’ll only use the correct products, so you don’t incur more damage.
If you want to try and combat rust altogether, be cognizant of the type of fertilizer you’re using on your lawn. A lot of fertilizers contain high levels of iron, which, if it gets onto your concrete driveway or metal railing can cause rust that is incredibly hard to scrub away.
Simply put, rust can be a major detractor on your property and even harder to scrub out yourself. With help from Natures Elements, you can have a rust-free home in no time. Call us today to get a free estimate or to book your appointment.
