I felt like rinsing it off would reactivate the rust. I painted with Rustoleum rusty metal primer months ago after neutralizing the rust with Etch and prep which turned all of the rust black...been walking on it...alot... and it hasn't worn off...or peeled. I had a leaky window and the floor got wet... no re-rusting and it's in great condition. I think using the rusty metal primer is key. Now I'm ready to give it a quick coat of paint.

No the water won't reactivate rust.
I dont always wash it, sometimes I wire brush the hell out of it after ospho, then I wipe with acetone, then paint.

I did wire brush some of the spots before sweeping. Before I had the chance to paint with the metal primer I did have some spots start to rust right back up so I treated them again and then made sure I painted soon after. all is good now.
It's all a learning experience.

Got me thinking and wondering why I was having flash rust in spots. We had an incredibly rainy and humid time while I was working on the rusty floors. This could be a matter of Northeast vs Southeast where in the south you have that blaring sun that tends to dry things quicker. My humidity and cloudy days days went on for weeks and weeks. I should have gotten to the painting sooner than I did.

I wire wheeled the bulk off to insure flat paint and good adhesion. Used Rustoleum Pro primer and paint coats.

BE AWARE WIRE WHEELING WILL GIVE METAL FUME FEVER

At least if you are an idiot like I was and breathe it. Ventilation and a proper mask is critical when dealing with zinc oxide.

Anyhoo, that was years ago, and the floor paint remains nice.

Metal Fume Fever is the name for an illness that is caused primarily by exposure to zinc oxide fume (ZnO) in the workplace. The main cause of this exposure is usually breathing the fumes from welding, cutting, or brazing on galvanized metal.

I hate that ****, pardon my French. Open all windows, run big fans, mask-up and go at it.

Timelord, I followed your link and am thankful that I'm only using it on the floors. Quite the discussion!
