REMOVING OIL STAINS FROM CONCRETE

Updated: Jul 19



As a proud homeowner, it’s no wonder why oil stains on your driveway have become the bane of your existence, who wants to see that each time you leave your front door or have guests arrive! Never fear, we’ve got a few simple solutions to help you solve this problem!


High-Pressure Washer

Using a high-pressure washer is a great way to remove oil stains without overexerting yourself. If you don’t have a high-pressure washer on hand, you can contact your local hardware store to enquire about hiring one.


Tackling Oil Stains Without A High-Pressure Washer

On new stains, try pouring a strong detergent on the stain, or generously cover the stain using baking soda, and with a hard scrubbing brush together with lots of “elbow grease”, scrub down the stained area. Once you’ve finished scrubbing, use hot water to wash clean.


If you have an old, or persistent stain, use a degreaser and follow product instructions. Degreasers can be purchased from your local hardware store.


TIP: Remember to follow safety instructions when using a high-pressure cleaner and ensure you follow your local government water restrictions at all times. If you don’t know what your local government restrictions are, simply log onto your local government website for the latest update.


If you’re hiring a high-pressure washer, consider other cleaning tasks you can tackle to get the most value out of your hiring cost. If you think you’re likely to use your high-pressure cleaner on a regular basis, weigh up the value of investing in buying one.
