    How do I remove cement from a pavement?

    Driveway Contractors

    Due to some recent building work at my home, some cement that was being mixed on my pavement has now left the pavement by my property discoloured. So far I cannot remove it. Nothing I have tried has had any effect so far! Is there any way to remove this effectively?

    "Have you tried any kind of mortar/brick cleaner? It’s a very strong acid which can dissolve the cement. It is something to be careful using. Always follow what the instructions on the bottle say and make sure that you are using proper protection for yourself; goggle, gloves, long sleeves, etc. Ideally, make sure not to use too much in one go.
    You can buy most mortar/brick cleaner liquid for about £10 (for 5 litres or so), from a builder’s merchant, online or any local DIY-type shops. After the cement has been dissolved (it will foam up in the process) you can use a jet wash to clear it away. Again, be careful with washing it away as it is still going to be very acidic."
