Tips for cleaning concrete floors in the garage

Concrete flooring is porous and absorbs stains very quickly. You don’t want to leave any spills, you want to get them out as quickly as possible. Leaving a spill will make it very difficult to clean up later.
For oil or grease spills, there are several ways to soak up the excess so it can be cleaned up. Dirt is something that has been found to be very absorbent when cleaning up oil spills. Look around your garden or yard for dirt that is dry if you decide to use it to clean up the spill. Don’t use clay dirt, it doesn’t work well. Sawdust is another substance you can use, as well as cat litter. Both work quite well for absorbing oil spills. Do not use sand to clean up oil spills, it will not absorb the oil.

If you have old spills that have soaked into the concrete and now stain, there may be ways to lighten the stain so it’s not as noticeable. Baking soda can be used to absorb greasy stains or residue. If necessary, you can make it into a paste and then scrub the area with a stiff broom or brush. You can keep trying other things until it gets even lighter. You can pour baking soda on the greasy stain and let it dry overnight. Scrub it with a stiff broom or brush and some soapy water, then rinse. Powdered dishwashing detergent can also be sprinkled on the spill and left for a short time. You’ll want to boil some water to pour it on and use a stiff broom or brush to scrub the area.

To clean the entire garage floor area: Prepare a solution of 1/2 cup all-purpose cleaner and 1 cup ammonia with 1/2 gallon of cool water. Be sure to work in a well-ventilated area when using this solution. Using a stiff broom and the solution, clean the concrete floor, starting from the back and working your way forward. Rinse well with cool water.

At this stage of using home remedies and the above suggestions have not yet produced the results you would like to see, you may need to try a commercial remedy. Trisodium phosphate or a commercial concrete cleaner might be something you might consider. These products can be dangerous, so be extra careful when using them. Read the instructions carefully and wear all the protective equipment they recommend. There are also acids you can use; however, you may want to consult a professional for this type of cleaning.
