For the residential homeowner concrete cleaning is usually a periodic cleaning task and not a daily or routine cleaning task because it is periodic the concrete floors around a home are usually fairly well soiled, stained or saturated with oil and grease.

This cleaning can become a difficult process and due to the fact that concrete is so porous, the soils and stains from the oil and grime are usually next to impossible to remove completely.

With that being said we have discovered a product that has been on the market for commercial end users for several years but tried it on a residential garage floor and it performed so well we felt the need to advise our readers of this product and what is most interesting it did not require and excessive amount of “Elbow Grease” to remove the stains. Near the end of this article, this company’s website is listed so our readers may be able to contact them to purchase this concrete floor cleaning product. This company’s website has a video demonstrating how it works.
