Oil and Grease Removal from Factory Floors and Roads
Oil stains look unsightly on any driveway and are dangerous slip hazards. They can be difficult to remove because oil is able to soak in and penetrate deep into porous masonry surfaces like concrete, bitumen and clay pavers. The type of oil effects the method used in removal. Hydraulic oil, gearbox oil, cooking oil and carbonised engine oil that has gone through the combustion process, all require different processes.
Unfortunately it only takes one incorrect process to permanently stain many surfaces. It is important that oil is removed from the surface as soon as possible to prevent deep penetration. If you are unfortunate enough to sustain a spill, cover the area with sand, saw dust or kitty litter to soak up as much oil as possible. Our team can clean this up and dispose of responsibly on arrival.
A three step chemical solution is used to remove the oil.
Step 1 - Trace in and dissolve the molecular structure of the oil.
Step 2 - Suspend the oil in situ preventing further absorption.
Step 3 - Draw the oil in suspended chemical solution to the surface.
The oil is then removed from the surface using heated water under pressure and the entire area neutralised and deep cleaned.
It is important to note that the surface must be dry for the process to work effectively and depending on the age of the oil stain and the level of absorption, a slight stain mark can remain that does fade over a few weeks of UV light from the sun.
Grease is generally easier to remove than oil because it tends to sit on the top of surfaces due to its consistency. A similar process to that of oil is used.

Oil and Grease Removal off Steel and Manufacturing Equipment
One of our manufacturing clients had some finished steel delivered from China. It had been covered in oil to protect it from corrosion during shipping. By the time it landed in Australia, it had become contaminated by dirt and was sticky, making the product unsaleable.
The steel strips were 6m long and as there were 1950 of them, it was nearly 12 km of cleaning required. After conducting tests on the best method of removal, we then designed an efficient cleaning process that fitted within our client's tight budget.
The cleaning system had to transport, store, stack, move, clean and dry the steel sections in an economical manner taking into consideration minimising our handling time, water usage, waste water generated and safe waste water disposal.
The results of the cleaning speak for themselves. The Stain Eaters are perfectly set up to cater for this kind of work. With the correct chemical application, correct method of cleaning, all the right procedures in place to protect the environment, right equipment and training, these jobs run smoothly on time and budget.
Our Service Restoration Vehicles (SRV) have all the specialised equipment on board to conduct these kinds of jobs at a moment's notice and can be diverted when on the road at any time to help you with these cleaning issues.
Our team enjoys getting our teeth into these type of cleaning challenges!

Avoid this Common Mistake and Save Time, Hassle, and Money
Every week, we receive calls from building owners who have trusted the cleaning of their property exterior to the lowest quote they could find. The results have been disastrous and the property owner or manager calls us to repair the damage. The property owner ends up paying twice for the work - when a call to The Stain Eaters could have sorted all the exterior issues quickly and for a sensible rate.
The building cleaning industry is not fully regulated and there are unscrupulous characters doing very average work in an unsafe manner. These photos illustrate the type of shoddy work we often have to repair.
