I have a customer who has some stains on their cement.  They want it cleaned up.

I need to know if pressure washing with cold water will work just as good as with hot water?

RE: cleaning concrete
Hi awesomelyclean, To answer your question, cold water pressure washing might do the trick.  It depends on what the stain is.  For some stains, neither will do the trick.  Do you have any idea what caused the stain?

RE: cleaning concrete
 Hey thanks for the help.  I ended up using a metal scrubbing brush attached to my stripping machine.

RE: cleaning concrete
I know you've got sorted now but if this happens in the future and it's just a small stain, a very weak bleach/water solutions works when used with a nylon brush. Good for spots etc.
