Recently I tested BacKrete® Waterless Concrete Cleaner on a badly stained driveway. This was a very stubborn stain; one on which I had unsuccessfully tested other oil remediation products. I applied approximately two (2) ounces the BacKrete® late on a Monday afternoon, around 5:00 pm and worked the fine powder into the pores of the concrete using a fine bristle push broom. The BacKrete® immediately lightened the oil stains. On Wednesday, actually less than 48 hours later, I inspected the driveway to see the oil stains nearly entirely gone. To say the least, I was very pleased with the results. A few weeks later I went back and applied a second application.
If you have an oil stained driveway, you should try BacKrete® Waterless Concrete Cleaner. Other services such as pressure washing services are more expensive and they don’t get to the oil laying deep in the pores of the concrete like the proprietary natural blend of bacteria in BacKrete® does. More importantly, if you hire a pressure washer service, or you do it yourself, be sure the waste water is reclaimed and disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. EPA fines for the improper disposal of waste water run into the tens of thousands of dollars.
If you have before and after pictures of oil stains cleaned by BacKrete®, feel free to share them with us in a blog post. We’d love to hear from you!
