How to Clean Oil Stains on a Driveway
Concrete and pavers are like a sponge. Unsealed concrete and pavers soak up oil through tiny pores in the surface. This makes it especially difficult to clean oil from driveways because it is in and under the concrete surface, not just on top. Some concrete is more “absorbent” than others and no two driveways are the same. When power washing oil stains from driveways we use 3 main methods:
Chemically treating the oil stains first with a commercial-grade degreaser helps by breaking up the oil’s molecular structure. This helps to separate the oil and loosen its grip on the driveway surface.
Steam-cleaning and washing with HOT water is what gives professional driveway cleaning companies their greatest advantage. Heat allows the molecular bonds to expand and eventually helps to pull the oil out of the concrete pores.
High-pressure cleaning forces the chemicals and heat further into the concrete pores so they can do their work. Cold water machines have to use a higher pressure which may lead to damaging the concrete surface. Too much pressure used improperly can etch the concrete surface permanently. Properly trained technicians use special tips to spread out the pressure evenly and know how much pressure they can use without damaging the surface.
