How can I remove paint from concrete steps? How can I remove paint from concrete steps?

If you have paint on your concrete steps as a result of painting rails or the exterior of the house, it can be irritating and can ruin the finish of your property. Most paints can be removed with a power washer. Start at a reasonable distance away and gradually get closer until the paint comes off. For stronger paints that cannot be removed with a power washer, try using a shotblaster. A shotblaster will fire small metal balls at the paint surface, however this will damage the top layer of concrete as well as removing the paint. Alternatively you can use a chemical stripper of the same type that you use to clean the dried-on paint off your brushes.
