Know Where Rust Stains Come From

We always recommend that property owners understand the cause of rust stains for a simple reason: When you understand the source of rust stains, you can fight back for the future. Preventative care is the best method of rust removal, after all! In general, these telltale orange stains are caused by three primary issues:

  • Irrigation Systems
    Some water sources contain trace amounts of iron. When the iron interacts with water, rust happens. This is a common occurrence on patios and sidewalks, where spray from your sprinkler system may overflow too the surface.
    Rust issues caused by Irrigation systems can be some of the most frustrating stains to navigate for clients. After removing the stain, our team is happy to provide recommendations on how you can prevent the issue from making a comeback .
  • Metal Ornamentation
    Lawn furniture, decorative elements, architectural details: if they contain metal, they’ll trigger rust when they’re exposed to moisture. This leads to a concentration of buildup and an ugly eyesore to match.
  • Battery Acid
    This isn’t actually a rust stains, but it does have a similar appearance. Battery acid stains are caused by – you guessed it! – a leaky battery and are often linked to landscaping equipment and golf carts.
