There are many reasons a business will outfit its industrial spaces with concrete flooring. Concrete is highly durable, fire-resistant, and relatively easy to maintain. However, you must utilize professional-grade cleaning equipment to keep your concrete floors looking their best.
Standing grease on a concrete floor can pose safety concerns, and long-standing grease stains can be challenging to clean effectively, leaving behind unsightly stains and discolorations.
Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM) provides businesses with valuable floor-cleaning equipment to keep their facilities clean, safe, and presentable.
In addition to cleaning products like wet/dry vacuums and motorized floor scrubbers, IDM also offers a range of concrete grinders and polishers designed for use in industrial spaces like warehouses, factories, and fabrication shops.
Learn how IDM’s concrete grinders and polishers can help maintenance crews and business owners tackle unsightly and hazardous grease stains. By learning more about how to clean grease off concrete, you’ll be ready to maintain safe industrial facilities.
A Better Way to Clean Grease Off Concrete
Manually scrubbing grease stains can be labor-intensive, time-consuming, and often ineffective. Instead, businesses should consider investing in professional floor-cleaning equipment to maintain their concrete surfaces.
One of the best ways to safeguard against hard-to-remove, set-in grease stains is to promptly remove any and all grease from concrete flooring as quickly as possible.
Simply waiting for these stains to air dry will only allow them to penetrate the surface and leave behind unsightly stains that will grow harder and harder to remove over time.
3 Steps to Remove Grease From Concrete
IDM’s concrete grinders and polishers can make quick work of concrete clean-up jobs. We’ll help you prevent grease from penetrating the concrete so deeply that it becomes impossible to remove.
Follow these steps to effectively remove grease stains from concrete with a professional-grade grinder and polisher.
Step 1: Take Action Right Away
Immediately try to remove any excess liquid from the floor. You may apply a de-greaser and thoroughly rinse the area to remove any standing grease before moving on to the next steps.
Step 2: Use a Machine
Use a concrete grinder (such as IDM’s Mustang 20, Mustang 22, or Mustang 27) to remove the top layer of concrete where the grease has likely set in. A concrete grinder can penetrate more deeply than a de-greasing product alone and help to prevent grease stains from setting in.
Step 3: Refinish the Surface
Once you’re satisfied that the grease stain has been thoroughly removed, you can use the grinder/polisher to refinish the surface of the floor and leave it looking good as new.
You may also consider using a concrete guard and densifier product to strengthen the condition of the concrete. This added step will help maintain durability over the long hail.
