hey guys i would like to know if anyone here has got any great/good tips for removing the staines on a carport floor, ive done the scrub with heavy duty degreaser but the stains are still there.

Also has anyone used steam cleaners to get rid of oil and grease marks off of carport floors?

cheers

im guessing ur carport floor is actually commonly known as concrete i doubt its tiles or carpet

my brother is a baker and they have to keep everything sparkling and the main product they use

drum role please


sugar soap & tooth brush (u will be amazed) will get almost anything out of anything takes some effort but is amazing

ive also found that armor all multi purpose cleaner and a tooth brush to remove anything from any surface

and when i say tooth brush i mean a proper tooth brush not one of the those stupid scrubbing brushes they cant get in every little hole and mark etc like a proper tooth brush

ive scrubbed the whole entire interior of my car with the armor all multi purpose & a tooth brush and everything even marks that i thought were soaked directly into the plastic/carpet/leather/velor/rubber came out

+1 to caustic soda. Never used diesel so can't comment.

Caustic soda won't damage concrete...not sure on carpet though. If you can get your hands on some high strength stuff, it should be relatively easy...however just be careful with the high strength stuff...it eats through your skin, so wear some gloves. If not you can use that CLR or whatever its called.

What kind of stains on the carpet...oil or uhhh other stuff. If it's oil you can try normal car degreaser...spray a bit on the carpet and heaps on a clean cloth. Dab the carpet and see if it comes off. I removed some oil stains from my car seats when I chuck dirty car parts in the back. Just don't use too much degreaser...the house will smell of degreaser for a while.
