How to Remove Paint From a Concrete Garage Floor


The concrete floor of a garage can see a lot of abuse, including the errant paint spill here and there. When that paint dries on the surface, it can be difficult to remove. This becomes a bigger problem if you decide to apply a new coating to the garage floor, since you will have to strip the previous paint from the area.

Things You'll Need

  • Razor blade scraper
  • Pressure washer
  • Drill
  • Wire cup
  • Find the edge of the painted area. Set the blade of the razor scraper on the floor and push it toward the painted area. Scrape as much of the paint off of the floor as possible.

  • Attach the wire cup to the drill. Run the cup across the surface of the paint to remove more of it.

  • Clear off the garage floor of any items that you don't want to get wet. Connect the pressure washer to a water source and adjust the nozzle to a small size. Turn on the washer and aim it at the painted surface. Blast off any remaining paint.
