    Anyone have a favorite product or method?

    Brake cleaner and floor-dri. Spray the stain then cover it with floor-dri. Walk on it a bit let it sit for a while then sweep it up. Works fairly well.

      Agree, brake cleaner works great and can also be used to get stains out of carpet in vehicle and home.

        We also use Brake Cleaner or Carb Cleaner for oil spots. I also have purchased heavy duty degreaser from sams club before if I have a large area I am working with.

          Can you use brake cleaner on sealed concrete floors that have oil stains? Will it affect the seal?

            Not that I know off but I would read the info for the brake and carb cleaner to see. Due to environmental controls there are different kinds that can be bought.

              It depends on the type of sealer you have on the floor, if you have an oil based sealer you may have an adverse affect of the sealer. If it was an acrylic sealer than there would be less of a worry.

              If the floor was properly sealed then you shouldn't need a degreassing agent to clean it

                Yeah, I cant attest to how the floors were sealed- but it was over 29 years ago so..... Im guessing over time it wears down with repeated mopping and buffing. Here's a pic of what Im talking about:old oil stain.jpg

                  Idaho has nice. I tell everyone that God built mice better than my ability to get rid of them. When someone says "You have mice?" I look them in the eye and say, "yes." I ask them if they see al the hawks and falcons flying around and ever wonder what they feed on. Most are...

                  This facility doesn't have a lot of landscape-weed-whacking and picking up trash, no lawn etc. So maintenance handles it. Last facility we had a landscaping company and they mowed, cleaned up leaves, branches and even removed snow if needed....
