How to Remove Leaf Stains from Concrete

Fallen leaves and other organic debris can be eyesores when left unkempt but are especially troublesome when they create lasting marks on driveways, sidewalks, or other concrete walkways. Get rid of these stubborn stains by hiring a professional, or put together heavy-duty cleaning artillery of your own by investing in a power washer and industrial-grade cleaning solution to successfully remove leaf stains and other debris.

How do leaf stains occur?

When leaves remain on concrete for too long, they begin decaying and release a dye that mixes with the alkaline in the concrete to create this imprint-like stain. Other organic materials that also stain concrete surfaces are:

  • Tree sap
  • Berries
  • Pine cones & needles
  • Winged seeds (i.e., Helicopters)

Choosing the best solution to remove leaf stains:

In order to remove any of the stains listed above, choose a professional multi-purpose stain remover. TidalWashers’s, TIDAL TAR ZAPPER, effectively lifts stains and washes them away with the help of a power washer or scrub brush. In addition to organic materials, TIDAL TAR ZAPPER removes chewing gum, tar, and asphalt along any concrete surface.

When using this product for leaf stains, spray the cleaner onto the surface undiluted. Let the solution sit for a few minutes, then agitate the stained area with a heavy-duty scrub brush. After, wash away the remaining solution and any residue there may be with a power washer. With all unsightly marks washed away, your concrete is now restored to its unblemished state. Always follow proper safety precautions when handling any chemicals.
