Concrete Slab Washing
Power washed an 8 x 8 concrete slab that is outdoors today. Used power washer for about 10 minutes or so, how long to wait until painting.

realize no one wanted to touch this post but wouldn't 1 want to wait til the conc dries ? completely ? then again, why would anyone paint conc - so much info is avail advising never to paint conc - that's puzzling

so is using a p/w for 10min - how's that relevant to cleaning ? 1 cleans til something's clean no matter how long it takes, no ?

Until it is dry.

I agree. Until it's dry, unless you are using latex paint then the water will just thin it a bit and perhaps give a better stick.

let me again post paint & conc never are a good match,,, there's no paint that's traffic resistant - not even to those cute little flip-flops :mad: there are some decent coatings avail that have a much longer life & are diy friendly
