I have been burdened with a husband that likes to work on cars in my driveway. While I love the fact that he is mechanically inclined, the mess he leaves on the driveway does not thrill me. The HOA is always on my back about the ugly oil stains that he leaves behind.
As I do not want to pay the HOA fines that come with an oil stained driveway, I have tried numerous methods of removing oil stains from my driveway. Some work better than others, but most of the ones that work kind of good are not exactly safe for the environment for example acid. While it removes the stain it discolors the concrete and damages it. It also will kill any vegetation that it comes in contact with. Degreasers while they will remove the surface oil with a lot of hard work they do not remove the deep oil stain. Power washers by themselves really don’t do much but the rest of the driveway looks cleaner, but that just makes the oil stain stand out more. Steam cleaners, while they do work better than the power washers, they are dangerous, I would know since I ended up spending 7 hours in the emergency room for the burn that my husband received trying to remove the oil stain from my driveway.
Finally at last I found the perfect driveway cleaning product, Terminator HSD Concrete Cleaner. This driveway cleaner is classified as a dry concrete cleaner. This new driveway cleaning product uses bioremediation to remove all traces of oil from the concrete. It has microbes that consume the oil; they just eat it up like I eat cheese cake. You have to be patient, it doesn’t show results immediately but as long as you mist it with a water bottle every day it works faster than if you don’t add the mist of water. The microbes need a small amount of water and oxygen to work. So as I live in the desert, I misted the stain every day, it took two and a half weeks but the stain is gone.
Keeping your driveway oil stain free, can now be simple and take no effort at all. Like most things in life you need the right products or tools to get the job done. Dry concrete cleaning products are the right product for removing oil stains from driveway or any concrete surface.
