Unsightly corrosion on pavers are able to make your patio or path seem unattractive. A timeless cause of the stains is metallic furniture left from the rain that then rusted and left stains. You can remove the stains and then restore your pavers for their rust-free state.

Chemical Removal

Fresh lemon juice and white vinegar can either eliminate rust stains. For either vinegar or lemon juice, pour or squeeze it straight over the area and let it sit for approximately five minutes. Before the fluid dries, scrub the area with a nylon bristled brush and then rinse with water. Oxalic acid, however poisonous, is another option for removing rust stains from concrete. Whichever you pick, test it on a small region of a paver to be sure it doesn’t bend the pavers.

Mechanical Removal

To skip the chemicals, try taking away the rust using old-fashioned scrubbing. Use a wire brush and dishwashing soap and water to vigorously clean and remove any stains. Rinse with water after you are finished.
