Not only are they unsightly but what is the hidden cost oil stains?
Across the country, residents and landlords alike are suffering from the negative impact on both property price and reputation that a poorly maintained façade and driveway can have.
We all know the cliché that kerb appeal is what sells property but this old adage is often quickly forgotten once property is occupied.
The focus then turns to the exterior of the building and the complaints and frustrations that come with maintaining the property.
With the recent warm weather and now rain, hidden dangers start to appear that put residents and visitors at risk of slipping and injuring themselves on oil leaks from poorly maintained vehicles, this oil is then trampled into surfaces ruining expensive carpet and in the worse case causing slips and falls. The liability foe which is aimed at the managers of the property.
Don’t let this happen to you.
Oil leak from a poorly maintained vehicle will eventually seep into the concrete surface hiding there until it is professionally removed.
Whether your problem is oil spots on a driveway or a major oil spill over a road, our team can organise the road closure, contain oil spread, chemically neutralise to restore the substrate, vacuum collect and safely discharge the waste without harm to the environment.
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
This picture shows the tell tale sign of a dangerous, slippery and unsightly oil leak after recent rain exposes it to the surface.
