Instead of attempting to remove these oil stains with harsh chemicals or pressure washing, here is an easy, eco-friendly alternative that is proven to be more effective and environmentally safe. Follow the instructions below to get rid of heavy duty oil stains on your concrete!

  • Push Broom
  • EXIMO Waterless Concrete Cleaner

Steps:

  1. Before starting process, make sure the affected concrete area is dry and free of any debris.

  1. While applying light pressure, spread EXIMO evenly with push broom across the stain without lifting the broom off the ground.TIP: Keeping broom in contact with the ground, sweep EXIMO forward and backward across the oil spot. Then sweep perpendicular to the previous motion to ensure EXIMO is evenly distributed to the area.
