Oil Stain Removal needs a Professional Touch

When dealing with oil stains, from whether a car with leaking oil or just your own clumsiness when topping up the engine oil, professional power washing services offer the best solution for removing these types of stains, from a large variety of surfaces. The high-pressure stream of hot water is highly efficient in loosening up stuck-on dirt, grease, moss, weed, as well as tough stains, such as oil stains. As with a multitude of other types of spots, hot water works better than cold one. However, there are a few surfaces for which, high-pressure hot water is not recommended. For example, surfaces like wood decks, tiled areas, masonry or brick, cannot stand up to the heat, as it will cause damage. When oil stains occur on areas made of one of these types of materials, pressure washing services offer a convenient, safe and efficient solution for treating the affected surface.

Very often, the terms “power washing” and “pressure washing” are used interchangeably, however, they are not quite the same thing. Is true that the basic function is the same, as both cleaning processes involve the use of highly pressurized water to remove dirt and other debris from hard surfaces, but there is one element that differentiates a power washer from a pressure washer, and that is the heating element. A power washer heats up the water, for increased efficacy, while a pressure washer only uses cold water. If you need to remove oil stains from a surface that won’t take hot water, pressure washing, combined with specialised cleaners and degreasing detergents, will help you do that. Either way, we got Dublin covered and use both techniques, depending on the material that needs to be cleaned. Oil stain removal in Dublin can be difficult, but not impossible.

Why choose our cleaning service?

Driveways or garage floors are probably the most common areas for oil stains to appear. A recent spillage can be easily removed using paper towels or rugs and rinsing with a hose, but for embedded stains, you need a more aggressive approach. You need to select a cleaning detergent suitable for the surface you are applying it on, and also adjust the pressure of your power washing machine, so it doesn’t damage the material the area is made of. If you are applying the degreaser using the power washer, make sure the cleaning solution is compatible with the machine. 

If you don’t have the time, detergents, machines, techniques, or any other products that ensure a job well done, you can call us to do it professionally.

Do It Yourself vs. Professional Oil Stain Removal

DIY vs PRO Cleaning

If you are a fan of DIY methods and you have decided to take care of an oil stain yourself, let us tell you that it will take patience and some degree of manual labour. If the spill is new, so still wet, you can apply a coat of sand, corn starch or baking soda, and let it absorb the oil. Once the stain dried up, sweep the absorbent material and clean the surface with water. For old spots or really large oil stains, the best tool you could use is a power washer. Either you already have one or you are renting the machine, a power washer will work faster and more efficiently than a garden hose. It will also spare you from manually scrubbing the area.    

Driveways are usually made from concrete, asphalt or block paving. Asphalt is a much softer material than concrete, so presents more of a challenge when cleaning. If you need to remove an oil stain from a driveway made out of asphalt, make sure not to use a too high-powered nozzle, as the chances are you will also remove the material together with the stain. Is advisable to use a cold water pressure washer, as too much heat will melt the surface. Extra care is also required when cleaning oil stains from block paving. Keep to a low-pressure nozzle, so you don’t remove the cement or sand that the pavers are edged with. For treating an oil stain on a painted wall, it is possible to use a pressure washer, but there are some risks involved. Applying too much pressure, will remove the paint and leave a patch even more unsightly than the original oil stain. Simply apply a degreaser to the stain and allow to soak for around ½ hour.

As you can see, there are many things you need to pay attention to, before even considering tackling an oil stain yourself. Not all cleaning solutions are created equal, and each surface requires specific techniques, nozzle sizes and pressure. Understanding the variations among detergents and materials will make the difference between removing an oil stain from a surface and damaging the area you are trying to clean. You can do all of that, or hire us for a professional oil stain removal in Dublin.
