Years of Concrete Washing Experience
Capital City Powerwashing believes cleaning your concrete periodically and keeping it sealed with the right concrete sealers are the key components of any good maintenance program. How often you clean and reseal will largely depend on the conditions the concrete is exposed to, especially weather extremes, sunlight intensity and the amount of foot or vehicle traffic.

Our Services Just Keep On Giving
Capital City Powerwashing will apply a transparent concrete sealer to your exposed aggregate surface to improve both its performance and appearance by helping to protect against spalling, dusting, efflorescence, freeze-thaw damage, stains, deicing salts and abrasion. The sealer will also enhance the color of the aggregate, accentuating its depth and richness.
Quality Products Have An Impact
In some cases, stamped concrete can be even more durable than standard concrete, especially if a color hardener has been applied to the surface. The hardener does more than simply impart color. It also makes the surface stronger and more resistant to abrasion and water penetration. Capital City Powerwashing will apply several coats of protective sealer to stamped concrete to block the penetration of dirt, deicing chemicals, oil and grease stains, and other substances. A good-quality sealer not only makes the concrete easier to clean, it offers other benefits, such as enhancing the color and preventing fading from UV exposure. Capital City Powerwashing is proud to offer Clemons Concrete Coatings and Sealers.
Your Resource for Maintenance
Even properly sealed stamped concrete will require some routine maintenance, depending on exposure conditions and the type and amount of traffic it receives. Although a sealer will inhibit stains, you should still sweep and wash the surface occasionally to avoid dirt buildup. Exterior surfaces can be pressure washed or scrubbed with a mild detergent. For interior surfaces, wet mopping or dry dust mopping of the floor is typically the only upkeep needed.
Other maintenance tips:
- On outdoor stamped concrete, avoid using deicing salts, especially during the first winter after the pavement is installed.
- If the stamped surface begins to dull or lose its sheen after time, recoating with sealer will usually restore the luster. Ask the installer for recommendations of the best sealer to use.
- On stamped interior floors subject to lots of foot traffic, it is especially important to maintain the sealed surface to prevent wear patterns. Application of a floor wax or polish can provide extra protection.
