Orange stains on your sidewalks?

Orange Stains on Siding and Cement: What to do?

As a homeowner, it’s not uncommon to notice orange stains appearing on your siding and cement. These unsightly stains are generally caused by mineral deposits, but don’t worry – they are treatable and preventable.

What Causes Orange Stains?

The orange stains are caused by high levels of minerals in the water that comes into contact with your siding and cement. When the water evaporates, the minerals are left behind and can cause discoloration. This is often seen in areas with hard water or well water, where the water has a high mineral content.

How to Prevent Orange Stains

You can help prevent these stains with a few simple steps:

  1. Watering your plants and lawn in the morning or late afternoon when evaporation is at a minimum.
  2. Aim Sprinklers away from soaking your driveway and walkways.
  3. Installing gutters or redirecting water runoff to prevent water from coming into contact with your siding and cement.
