I need to remove latex paint from a set of outside concrete steps.
I was able to remove some of the paint with a pressure washer but there is
still quite a bit left.
Any information concerning various removal methods and how well they have
worked for you would be appreciated.
Thank you very much,
Sandblasting with a low-abrasive media- something harder than paint but
softer than concrete. Do they still sell ground walnut shells for blasting?
Or has that been replaced by plastic beads? Other than that, one of the
chemical solutions, starting with the benign citrus-based stuff used to
remove graffiti, on into the nasty and expensive chemicals.
Since concrete is porous, nothing is likely to be 100% effective. Plan on
repainting with concrete-colored paint.
Pour some rubbing alchol ont the step, cover with
plastic wrap or such wait an hour and wash. Alchol
will soften latex paint only and not oil.
May not take it all off but will help
