Use The Best Garage Floor Cleaner To Remove Stains

Maintaining a clean and beautiful garage floor is very difficult. You have to identify the type of stain and use the appropriate product to remove the stains. There are different kinds of floor cleaner products available on the market today and they each have their special use. Not every cleaner will remove all types of stains. So you have to be very careful to choose a garage floor cleaner according to the stains found on the floor.

The first step before buying the cleaner is to identify the kind of stain. The stains could be formed due to many reasons like grease, oil, road salt, grime and other kinds of dirt which penetrate the flooring. You should also consider the type of flooring you have used inside. If you have painted the floor you may think it is better to apply another coat of paint over it to cover the stains. But if the paint does not stick properly, which it probably won’t, then your problem will be worsened and you will have to use a cleaner.

Some of the different types of cleaning options which can be used include dishwasher soaps, trisodium phosphate, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, solvent cleaner, pressure washer and steam cleaner. To remove the stain, you have to first soak it up by using any one of these absorbent materials. You can use sawdust, baking soda or cat litter over the stain and leave it for about half an hour. When the stain has been absorbed, clear the mess and dispose of it properly.

You can also use a pressure washer or a steam cleaner as these will help you to avoid other kinds of cleaners. There are both toxic and non-toxic cleaners which can be used. For simple stains use the dishwasher soap solution or the trisodium phosphate. If they are not working, you can try stronger cleaners to remove the stains. Some of the strong cleaners include ammonia and bleach. Use appropriate protective gear while using these products.

If you have a concrete floor you want to use a product that has the ability to dissolve oil and grease from concrete. You can get these from your local hardware stores. Whatever the type of cleaner you use leave it for at least half an hour on the stain and then rinse it off with water and a heavy sponge. To remove any remaining cleaner from the floor sprinkle baking soda over the area.

By knowing the type of stain you can easily remove it with a proper garage floor cleaner to get a clean floor. In order to prevent your garage floor from all kinds of dirt and abuse you can either use a mat, carpet or even cardboard over it.
