How do you remove rust stains on a roof?
Oxalic or Muriatic Acid diluted with water will remove rust stains from a roof. Here in Tampa, Muriatic Acid is common, used for swimming pools. Diluted 1 part acid to 4 parts water, it will remove rust stains off a roof. Plain Vinegar is a mild acid, and should be tried first! You may have to apply several applications of it, but we here at Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa suggest you try it first ?

If you put a whole jar of Tang in a rusty dishwasher and run a full cycle the dishwasher comes out bright as new! Perhaps make a paste of Tang and water and scrub-brush it onto the rust stains. Rust Stains are easy to STOP before they START. Homeowners, all over the Country, who pump their sprinkle…r water from a lake, pond or canal are faced with the chance of getting rust stains on their house, driveway, patio and plants. Iron particles in the water are heavy so they tend to settle closer to the bottom. If your water intake is close to the bottom of the lake, pond or canal, then you are sucking in a higher concentration of iron and you can expect to see rust on your house. The simple solution is to float your water intake closer to the surface. This is why you will see duck and geese decoys floating behind many houses in South Florida. An illustration of this problem, and solution, can be seen at: http://www.33029.com/ugly_rust_stain_on_my_house.htm (MORE)
First thing to try is industrial acetone that you buy at any hardware store. Put it on a soft rag to scrub a bit. It may take several tries, but should work. Just be careful not to get the acetone on any of the stained wood. Secondly, Bar Keepers Friend in a soft paste. On polished marble don't s…crub really hard, just kind of buff the area. Rinse with water or acetone on a rag. After you have a clean surface, reseal the stone with a professional stone sealer. My mother gave me a couple of old marble table tops that her brother had made. Each of them had rust stains on them that had been there for years. I called my uncle and asked him if there was any way to get the stains out, he said the best way was to use alot of elbow grease and a soft rag and Turtle Wax Polishing Compound and then buff it up a little. Believe it or not it worked like a charm and they look like new. Another idea to try (If the marble is colored,try covering with a mixture of salt and lemon juice and leave until it's worked.Rinse with water and soda mix.Rinse again.) NEVER, EVER, NEVER use lemon juice on marble. Lemon juice is an acid and it will just etch the stone. On a polished surface it will take the polish right off. Be careful trying either the CLR (label says it shouldn't be used on stone) or the home remedy above because it may cause etching on your marble. I've heard Singerman's Concrete Rust Remover worked, but only applying it for a couple minutes at a time. . It is advisable not to use acid cleaners on countertops. The top surface can be gradually dissolved by acids and expose the layer underneath and cause a lot of damage.

If you have lots of rust stains from nails and washers in your plaster in-ground pool because of the hurricane blowing them off of the roof into the pool can they be cleaned?
Answer If you can drain your pool take muriatic or hydrachloric acid mix 4 to 1 with water and give your pool an acid wash.Rinse the surface add acid keeping the surface wet add acid then scrub with a stiff brush, Repeat as needed for each stain Answer The first response is correct, however I want …to add a few details. You need to be very careful when draining a concrete pool if you have a high water table. Regardless you need to check and make sure you have a hydrostatic relief valve and that it is working properly. If you fail to do this and you have a high water table the pool will float out of the ground like a boat, because you have the opposite of a boat in the ground, however when you drain the pool it is now like a boat. Back in WWII they actually made ships out of concrete. Pretty cool. But that is another story. Once you have drained the pool check the hydrostatic relief valve as soon as possible. If you do not have one, or it is not working get it working right away! If you don't have a hydrostat and you know you have a water table problem get a hole in the main drain sump right away to relieve the pressure under the pool. \n\nOnce you have resolved this issue make sure you have the proper equipment to acid wash the pool. Plastic buckets, nylon bristle brush with a wood backing, wood pole for the brush, rubber boots, rubber gloves and eye protection. Do not fool yourself Muriatic Acid is very hazardous! Handle it with great care. When you have finished acid washing you will need to neutralize the water with soda ash before you pump it out. Be careful if you are using well water to wash the pool down. If this water has any metals in it and you add the soda ash it could cause the water to stain the finish of the pool, if that is the case that will require a lot more effort and would be a whole separate question. \n\nOnce you are done and you are ready to refill the pool before the water gets to deep check and make sure the hydrostatic relief valve is working properly or if you punched a hole in the bottom of the sump patch it.\n\nGood luck this is a nasty job. You may want to consider hiring a local pool company to do this ugly job.\n\nGuru of Pools\nat Discount Pool Warehouse.com (MORE)

Best Answer: Bleach will only remove a small portion of the stain and the scrub brush on concrete will definitely cause permanent damage to the concrete. Once concrete is "spot treated" with improper tools, chemicals or techniques it can be permanently damaged. Battery acid stains are not rust and …are a chemical reaction within the concrete. If you try Hydrochloric Acid, Hydrochloric will only remove a maximum of 60-80% of the stain. It is very dangerous and will permanently damage your concrete. The only reason HCL Acid works is because it dissolves the cement past and takes a small amount of stain with it. Fertilizer stain are not created equal and you need something that works, every time. The solution we know will work is a new product called F9 BARC (Battery Acid Restoration Cleaner) made by Front 9 Restoration, Inc.

We have used many different types of rust removers for this type of restoration. We didn't have much luck with any of them until we came across a product called F9 Concrete Rust Remover. I think they called it F9 BARC. So I called them and they sent out a professional because this stuff is for pr…ofessional use only. I didn't mind though because I had probably spent 3 hours walking around and spraying stuff on my roof that didn't work. I was very impressed with the company that came out, the price was reasonable and he removed all of the rust on my roof, with no damage. I am happy to refer the F9 Applicators. They did a fantastic job. (MORE)

Oxalic acid. Place it directly on top of the stain. This can be done with a section of PVC pipe.
