Hey everyone, I need some help with a concrete floor. The customer removes the powder from the fire extinguishers (all types) and it goes everywhere. They will be moving out soon and wanted the floors clean of it. Anyone got an idea or experience on getting this cleaned?

They tried to pressure wash it but from what I read on google is that water should always be the last step. The white reappeared after it dried up.

I had trouble finding that in smaller quantities. I am guessing you mop some of that after vacuuming as much dry residue as possible?

Why not hit it with rob's groutmaster, let is dwell and then spin it out, edge with a tool. final mop out when done?

Just thinking out loud.

That's what I would try.

You can get that product in gallons. Mist the floor with it after vacuuming all dry matter. Then with a swing machine or an auto scrubber go over it with out water and then rinse bam good as new

Use a dust mop to sweep. Try not to shake it because the dust flies everywhere. Use a concrete cleaner from home depot (zep, blue gallon) dilute it, with a floor scrubber, wet vacuum and rinse mop. Done.
