Whether it’s a floor or a driveway, there are times when you need to know how to get spray paint off concrete.
There are many methods for removing spray paint from concrete, ranging from simple soap, water and elbow grease to heavy-duty equipment. Always start with the gentlest method first, before working your way up to more drastic methods if necessary.
If the paint is still wet, ordinary dishwashing soap and water might get it off your concrete surface. However, because spray paint dries quickly, here are some stronger options to try, from least powerful to strongest, including some that require safety equipment:
Follow any instructions for mixing. Spray on the cleaner or stripper, let it sit for a few minutes and scrub with a stiff bristle brush, then hose down the area. When using anything stronger than soy-based gel strippers, make sure the area has good ventilation and wear rubber gloves, eye protection and a mask so you don’t breathe in any dry powder.
You can also buy or rent several different tools that can be used to remove paint from concrete. These are best applied in outdoor settings such as sidewalks or driveways. Again, these are listed from least powerful to most powerful.
When using grinders and sandblasters, use a vacuum attachment, dust mask and safety goggles, because these tools raise massive amounts of dust.
