Power wash, acid wash, sanding or scrubbing are just simply not going to get the profile, it actually requires a CSP-3 level, it means that the only way to get it is by mechanical grinding, with the right tools and vacuum attachments, most of the time is a simple process, also helps to remove contaminants and to clean the surface.
