Acid staining can be done to most concrete surfaces so long as said surface is free of grime, coatings, glues, curing membranes or sealers. Many experienced concrete contractors prefer to use acid staining with newly poured concrete, as this ensures the concrete is free of any items that can hinder the staining process.
In addition to the skill and the knowledge of stained concrete, it also takes proper concrete surface preparation equipment along with dustless vacuum systems to control airborne dust.
