About This Product

GHOSTSHIELD HYDRO-ETCH 1000: A powerful, acid-based concrete cleaner, etcher and efflorescence remover. Available in an industry leading, concentrated formula. A SAFER ACID ETCH: Less caustic than traditional muriatic acid, but just as powerful, the 1000 cleans and creates an effective surface profile by opening the substrates pores. Specially formulated to clean, brighten and etch concrete while removing efflorescence, dirt, algae and scum. CREATES SURFACE PROFILE: Easily applied with a sprayer, the 1000 can be used indoors and outdoors on new and old concrete, brick and masonry. CLEANS & BRIGHTENS: This solution leaves concrete cleaner, lighter and brighter than the day it was poured. Shipped concentrated, this product is diluted with 3 parts water for a lighter etch or diluted with 1 part water for a heavier etch. Ammonia or baking soda are used after etching to neutralize the substrate.

Answer This Question

A:  Thanks for considering Ghostshield products. This product is an acid-based etching formula. It is designed to breakdown, dissolve, and remove the top surface layer of stone, concrete, and masonry material. If you are looking for a general purpose cleaner - something designed to clean, lift, or remove dirt, grime, and grease stains without physically altering tor breaking down the surface, we would recommend using Ghostshield MicroDegreaser 1100.

    Q:We have brick steps from the attached garage leading to our kitchen door. Over the years of use, the steps have become dirty to the extent that sweeping does not help. Because the garage walls are drywall, we cannot use a pressure washer to clean the steps lest we damage the drywall. Will this product, Ghostshield Concrete and Masonry Cleaner, be effective for me to manually apply, scrub with non-metal brush, and vacuum up with a wet/dry shop vac?

    I applied this to my basement cinder lock walls with efflorescence in some areas. followed all the directions closely. did not do a good jo of removing deeper areas, even after second application. Used TSP next, and it did a much better job. This could be a cumulative effect also. Considering the cost differential, I would recommend using TSP first and the moving on to this product if not satisfied.
