Frequently Asked Questions
Will Pour-N-Restore discolor concrete or masonry?
We have tested Pour-N-Restore on various materials and we have not experienced any discoloration at all. Furthermore, we have never had even one customer complaint regarding discoloration. However, we always recommend testing a small inconspicuous area first before treating painted, stained, or pigmented surfaces.
Can I use Pour-N-Restore on asphalt (blacktop)?
If Pour-N-Restore is used to remove stains on asphalt it will dissolve the surface layer and expose the aggregate. Therefore, we DO NOT recommend it for stain removal on asphalt. However, Pour-N-Restore can be used to remove stains from asphalt on concrete or masonry surfaces.
Will Pour-N-Restore bleach concrete or masonry?
No. Pour-N-Restore does not bleach. If after using Pour-N-Restore you find that the area appears lighter in color, simply rinse the area with a strong stream of water to flush the white absorbent powder from the surface.
Why is Pour-N-Restore taking so long to dry?
At temperatures above 60°F (16°C), dry time will be approximately 5-8 hours. If you are using Pour-N-Restore in cooler temperatures, expect dry time to be extended considerably. Dry time can also be extended by high levels of humidity and poor ventilation. To accelerate dry time, spread Pour-N-Restore with our v-notch spreader and/or direct a fan at the treated area.
After sweeping, why does the area still appear dark?
After sweeping Pour-N-Restore, there will be moisture trapped in the pores of the concrete or masonry surface. Simply provide adequate ventilation and allow the moisture to evaporate out.
Can I use Pour-N-Restore on sealed surfaces?
While Pour-N-Restore is effective on sealed surfaces, dry time may be extended considerably in some cases. After sweeping Pour-N-Restore, it may take several days, even weeks, for the moisture to evaporate out from beneath some sealers. To increase the evaporation rate, provide maximum ventilation and direct a fan at the treated area.
Will Pour-N-Restore harm grass or plants?
After it dries to a powder, Pour-N-Restore will not harm vegetation. However, in its liquid state, it will be harmful. Therefore, if Pour-N-Restore comes in contact with vegetation, dilute it with large amounts of water.
Does scrubbing improve performance?
We never recommend scrubbing on the first applications since it may actually hinder performance. However, if a stubborn stain requires subsequent applications, scrubbing may enhance performance. Scrubbing is particularly helpful on heavy stains left from materials like tar and wax.
Does Pour-N-Restore work on old stains?
Yes. Pour-N-Restore is effective on old stains too. If the stain has not been cleaned previously with other cleaning products, one application should be sufficient. If subsequent applications are required, scrubbing may enhance performance.
Should I pressure wash the stain?
We recommend scraping buildup off the stain before using Pour-N-Restore, but we do not recommend pressure washing. This may actually inhibit Pour-N-Restore’s performance. After using Pour-N-Restore, pressure washing is not required, but it can help clean absorbent residue from the area. If subsequent applications are required, scrubbing may enhance performance.
How do I remove Pour-N-Restore if it gets embedded in the sealer?
Pour-N-Restore can adversely affect some sealers leaving a white residue, shiny residue, or powder embedded in the sealer. The solution is to strip the sealer with more Pour-N-Restore. Apply it to the affected area; let it soak for 10-15 minutes, and scrub. After 30 minutes, scrub again, and then sponge Pour-N-Restore from the surface, or rinse, to remove the sealer. When the surface is completely dry, you can apply Pour-N-Restore to the embedded oil stain following the directions on the bottle.
