Clean Up Winter Before Spring!

Spring Sidewalk

When cold temperatures linger and snow keeps coming, it can feel like winter is never going to end. As we trundle our way through the last chills of winter, we all look forward to warm, spring months where flowers start to bloom again and grasses become greener. We may even get a taste of spring as a tease before winter is really over. But, before we make our way to local nurseries to pick out some perennials or start planning our veggie gardens, there’s some post-winter cleaning to do.

After every snowfall and every ice storm you likely used a deicing product to treat your driveway and walkways. Did you know that salt and liquid deicers can leave behind efflorescence?

“Efflorescence” might sound pretty (the word means “to flower out” in French), but the reality is something much less attractive. Efflorescence is the white, powdery deposit you see coating stones, bricks and concrete. This happens when soluble salts rise to the surface of porous materials and gets left behind after water evaporates. While these coatings aren’t hazardous, they can quickly become an eyesore. What is the best way to get rid of these stubborn and unsightly stains?

BareGround’s One Shot Efflorescence Remover is our fast-acting, water-based cleaner scientifically designed to remove efflorescence from concrete and masonry. By attacking sodium chloride deposits directly, our solution makes cleaning a breeze. Best of all, a treatment of One Shot Efflorescence Remover also helps prevents efflorescence stains from recurring.

After you take care of your spring cleaning at ground level, don’t forget to clean places you don’t see as easily, like the solar panel on your roof.  While the ice and snow may melt away on its own, there will always be dirt and grime left behind which will diminish solar panel efficiency and effectiveness.  In order to maximize the impact of your solar investment, it’s essential to keep panels clean throughout the year

Our One Shot Solar Panel Cleaner washes away dirt and reduces surface tension to prevent further buildup. Specially formulated to protect and improve the efficiency of solar glass, our cleaner is:  

  • Ammonia free
