Make the Right Impression with Clean Concrete
From Walls to Garage Floors, We Clean & Restore the Dirtiest Surfaces
Bring Your Concrete Back To Life
Concrete cleaning “from walls to garage floors” leave “We clean…”
Maintaining your concrete surfaces is an important, and often overlooked component in your property’s image. Even though it’s mainly subconscious, it is one of the first things a potential customer sees when they arrive at your business. It can make-or-break the image that you are trying to portray to your clients. You only get one chance at the initial imprint.
When Concrete sidewalks and entrance areas are clean, people don’t notice them; they look “normal”. No one says “Man, these sidewalks are clean.” But when sidewalks are dirty, people notice them and it says a lot about your business. If you’re not taking care of the outside of your business, what are you doing inside? Employees are also affected. Image an employee arriving to work. One building is dirty, with growth and stains all over the sidewalks and entrance. Another building has cleaned and well-maintained sidewalks. Which building would the employee be more likely to have a good attitude and take pride in where they work?
That’s where we come in. Pelican Exterior Washing has the solution to all of your concrete cleaning needs. We provide an extensive commercial concrete cleaning service for your property’s sidewalks, driveways, parking lots and parking garages, entrance ways, loading docs, dumpster pads, and other concrete surfaces.

Biological growth, Oil, rust, grease, sap, dirt, road carbon, tire dust can make concrete look filthy. Concrete is porous, like a sponge. Many contaminants that are left for extended periods of time, (especially petroleum based products), will deeply penetrate into the concrete. Some stains cannot be removed from concrete, only lightened. It is best to treat these areas immediately after a spill..
The warm and humid weather conditions that we experience along the coast of South Carolina foster organic growth easily, especially in shaded areas.
Dirty concrete surfaces can become infested by organic growth such as moss, fungi, algae, and bacteria. This causes the concrete to become slippery and a potential safety hazard. Aesthetics notwithstanding, it is your responsibility to mitigate any Slip/Fall Hazards around your business’s exterior.

How We Restore Your Concrete
Deep rooted stains and neglected concrete can become almost impossible to clean. Many managers and property owners attempt to DIY, but quickly realize that the job is much too large or time-consuming to clean using a “homeowner” pressure washer. Without the proper technique, chemicals and equipment, these jobs can be daunting.
Types of concrete staining include; Organic, inorganic, petroleum-based, rust, gum. There are many stains of unknown origin, and those mysteries may never be solved. The memories of some stains keep me up at night, wondering.
To clean concrete, Pelican Exterior Washing uses two methods; pressure washing and chemically treating (soft washing).
We use industry-leading, professional-grade equipment. We use high pressure and high “gallons per minute” pressure washing machines and specially-designed surface cleaners. This equipment allows us to clean concrete, (even really large areas), in a fraction of the time it takes you. With the high pressure and water output, we clean concrete better, as well.
We also use many different types of industrial-grade cleaning solutions. We mix each solution to proper strength and ratios, catered to the type of stain. Our solutions, mixed to the required strength, clean the concrete safely, effectively and efficiently.
Even hard surfaces like concrete can be damaged by using too much pressure or improper use of cleaning chemicals.. “Writing in” or chemically etching the concrete are problems that cannot be fixed. When we see this, people in our industry think “Zorro was here”. This marring will always be there and can only be remedied by replacing the concrete. This is an expensive proposition that can be avoided by hiring professionals that know what they are doing.
