Mother Nature’s interactions with your stucco cause most stains. Most result from concentrated dirty water run off (rain, pollen, dust and organic material) absorbed into the stucco’s porous surface. To clean stucco, start by saturating the entire wall from the bottom up to prevent absorption of dirty water created during cleaning. Use a hard, nylon-bristled brush with mild laundry detergent to scrub the stain. If unsuccessful, move to more stringent cleaning solvents like tri-sodium phosphate (TSP) or Lime-A-Way. As a last resort, try using diluted muriatic acid, but be careful as it can damage plants, some building materials and skin and eyes. If you desire a pristine wall, you probably need a re-stucco.

“Excellent job, beyond expectations; 11 men happy to do our house; no mess (everything covered); well orchestrated; they moved efficiently through each step. Larry patiently helped us on color selection. While Think Stucco presented the highest of five bids we are confident that no other stucco company could have done as high a quality job for less money. The care to our property (plants, sidewalk, grass, deck, deck furniture, sidewalk and worker pathway) were all covered. Appealing crisp lines and color breaks of the new stucco - the easiest home improvement investment we have made.”
