How to Remove Tire Marks from Concrete

Tire Marks from concrete on garage floorsAfter time, people start seeing and paying attention to the  unsightly marks left by their car, or some else’s tires on their driveway and garage floors. They can be ugly and even irritating to see, like a blemish on your home. Many of us hate seeing these and want them cleaned up.   The good news is that they can be removed.

Depending on where they are, how long they have been there, and how thick the tire marks are , can make all the difference when removing them. The marks left by tires are essentially pieces of tire’s rubber that has come off and been “cooked” into the concrete surface the rubber landed on sits.  For whatever reason it happened, we know that they  irritate you and you want driveways and garage concrete or floors looking nice again!
