Rust Stain Removal

We got a call a couple of weeks ago from a homeowner that wanted to know if we could remove rust stains from vinyl siding.

When we got to the home, we saw how bad it really was.
The home had part of it's air conditioning unit in the attic. There was a condensation pan under this unit that had rusted. When condensation water filled the pan, the water run out an overflow pipe carrying this rust down the side of the house, severely staining it.
The short of it is, Palmetto Home & Deck LLC was able to remove the rust stains making the house look good as new.

We may call ourselves pressure washers, but in reality, pressure has nothing to do with properly and safely cleaning you home. We never started the machine to remove this rust stain. Just like in our house washing, it is our special cleaning solutions that do the cleaning and high pressure is never needed on the side of your home.

This is the deck stained after the cleaning post below

You can see the cleaning of the deck on the post below this one......But after the deck has been cleaned and allowed to dry out to the ideal moisture content that is precisely checked with an electronic moisture meter, we come in and inspect the deck for popped nails and for any areas that may need sanding.
Once the deck has been inspected and all sanding or other repairs have been performed, we apply a premium contractor grade stain/sealer. We employ several methods for applying the stains we use including brushing, stain pads, or spraying to fit the conditions of the task at hand.

Our favorite stain by Ready Seal penetrates deep into the wood for superior wood protection and lasting beauty. For more information about deck staining visit our website at
