Hello. I know most people would recommend ordering a specialized cleaner from an online source and I plan on doing just that, however let’s say I need to clean a lot of sidewalk around medical center tomorrow, so obviously I cannot wait for am order to ship in the mail. there’s not oil stains, just a concrete sidewalk, but there is a ton of caked in dirt. Would Zep or Purple cleaner or really any of the generic degreasers from home depot work?
For reference this is my first commercial job. It’s not huge so I can’t really justify spending $100 on commercial degreasers from my local supplier but a 5 gallon jug of Zep Should cover the roughly 500 ft of walk right? I’ll upload a pic too if that’s helpful. I’ve done a lot of residential flat work but that almost always involves post treatment with sh and very very little degreasers (been using dawn tbh. It’s really mostly mildew and mold, water alone can tackle the dirt in Houston)
Thanks for the advice.
This is about a third of it, plus the entry and sidewalk on the other side.
I have a 4gpmachine with a downstream and 16" surface cleaner.
Edit: also did a test spot and water gets about 90% off but still (barely) visible striping
