If you find a big old spot in the middle of your concrete driveway, maybe you will try to think up a way to remove it. Maybe you will try to clean it up by using water, but this is extremely not enough.
It is really embarrassing to have dirty, stained pavement, garage floor or driveway, all made of concrete. But whatever you do, just don't postpone the cleaning, because it will get harder to be removed and if that happens, then you should use the help of professional cleaning services. You should know that oil stains, grease and dirt on concrete are not so easy to be cleaned, nor quickly. All you need is to know is how to clean concrete and then even the most stubborn oil stains will be effectively removed with no left oddments.

To have a clean concrete garage floor or driveway you can try the following instructions:

  1. The first thing you can try to clean the oil stain is to pour cola on the stained area and leave it like that overnight. Cover the stain with generous amount of dish-washing liquid mixed with water, and then clean it with a garden hose.

  2. Baking soda can be a really good cleaning solution, instead of some chemicals, still used in cleaning services by some companies. So you just spread some amount of baking soda on the oily stained area. If the stain is dry, you better wet it, so that you make a scouring paste. Then scrub with a stiff brush. In no time the stain will be gone.

  3. Leave automatic dishwasher detergent on the concrete for a few minutes. The next you have to do is to pour boiling water on the stain and scrub it with a push broom and rinse.

  4. If non of the above helps you to remove the oil stain from the concrete, then try a commercial cleaner or even a grease solvent such as Benzine. Be careful when using it and read the instructions before applying.

  5. As a last try, spread muriatic acid and use pressure washer. Again be really careful when you decide using such acid, or acid at all. After applying, let it soak for several seconds. Don't forget to get equipped with rubber or latex gloves, safety goggles and protective clothing before start using the acid and keep in mind to never wash such a product down storm drains.

Many people try to remove oil stains on their own, but many others prefer the use of professional cleaning London companies. At least cleaning takes time, money and sometimes it can be dangerous. So if you are one of those, who find the idea of hiring cleaning services the best, you can make a little research and choose the most reliable and suitable cleaning provider.
