Acid Stained Concrete
Acid stained concrete can be a big deal in the construction environment. Usually when building in an area or doing a lot of construction a lot of crews will simply cause all kinds of messes in the general vicinity of the place and then expect to clean everything up later. They will get the major rocks and the big things of course but this is a problem because they will tend to ignore the simpler things that are harder to pin point. A good example of one of these simpler things would be acid stained concrete. This is something that you will need to keep a watch for especially if it is your property that is being worked on. There is not necessarily a great chance of you having to deal with a mess like this in the future, as a construction site that needs acid only during the construction phase is a bit unlikely and not something that you will have to deal with on a daily basis so to speak. There has to be a special type of construction in order for them to need acid and this is not a type of construction that you are likely to see occurring in your near future because it is simply not a common thing. If, however you think that you are going to have this problem then it will be a good idea to keep some other acids on handy in order to do self cleanup once the crew leaves.
The reason I say to keep acid handy is because the only really good way to get out a stain out of acid stained concrete is with more acid. The other acid will be able to dissolve whatever ugly mark was left there by the first acid. The only thing you will need is a bucket of water, or sand, or something to dilute the new acid once it has done its job. If you let it sit there on top of the other stain for too long then it will likely just cause a new stain to happen. It may also eat away at the concrete itself leaving a small hole. You need the other thing around to be able to soak up or dilate the acid so this does not occur, that is, if you care about the fate of your concrete, which I assume you do because you are reading this tip. Make sure to get the correct acid for you. You need to research which one you will need most.
It is fairly obvious what the job of a cook will entail, but if you have skills in this area would you consider working on an oil rig to put them to the test? It certainly provides an altogether different environment from where many other cooks work, and yet it is...
