Oil stains not only look unsightly but can also pose a potentially dangerous slip hazard, particularly if the oil build up is heavy or when it gets wet.
No one likes to have oil stains on their driveway or garage floors, unfortunately, even the best maintained vehicles can leave behind oil spots on these surfaces.
Due to the highly porous nature of cement, oil is quickly able to soak deep into the substrate which then makes the stain very dark and extremely difficult to clean with ordinary off the shelf products.
In addition to this, the type of oil that has stained the surface greatly effects the method that is required to be used in order to successfully treat and remove the stain.
For example, hydraulic oil, gearbox oil, cooking oil or carbonised engine oil that has gone through the combustion process, all require a different treatment and cleaning processes to fully break-down the oil and extract it from the substrate.
Unfortunately, we are commonly called out to oil stain clean up jobs after there has been other attempts to clean the stain. As a result of these treatment attempts, the usual result is that the oil has only been pushed deeper into the substrate which then requires multiple treatments using the correct solution and process in order to extract the stain.
It only takes one incorrect process to permanently stain many surfaces, so it is very important that oil is removed from the substrate as soon as possible to prevent permanent damage.
Regardless of whether your problem is just small oil spots on a driveway or a major oil spill over a road or loading dock, our highly experienced technicians can organise the road closure, contain oil spread, chemically neutralise to restore the substrate, pressure clean and vacuum collect and safely discharge the waste without harm to the environment.
Give our team a call and we’ll take care of the whole process quickly.
