Tire marks off concrete

I am in the process of getting a metal building erected. The guys that are doing it are using a big pettibone type forklift. This thing has marked up the concrete pretty good(floor is now dark almost black). Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get the tire marks off. They havent finished yet, still have to put on the roof so I havent wanted to clean it until they are done.

Thanks

John

Try a pressure washer. First soap it down with DAWN dish washing soap, run a broom over it the pressure wash.

If you get a hard spot, use some carb cleaner on it.

Good job

You can rent the industrial buffers and there is a big round scotch brite pad tha tis used with those for scrubbing floors..look into one of those as that will get it as clean as it is going to get..

Personally I prefer the clear sealers for concrete as it seems to hold up better in industrial use..
