Cleaning oil and dirt from industrial floors is best done on a daily basis as part of your regular maintenance schedule.

Cleaning Floors with Oil Eater® Floor Cleaner & an Autoscrubber

Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser is the perfect choice for maintaining your industrial facility’s floors with an autoscrubber. Dilute as follows:

Surface Oil Eater Water
Raw Concrete / Unsealed Floors 1 part 20 parts
Sealed / Painted Concrete 1 part 40 parts
Waxed Floors 1 part 50 parts

For heavily soiled areas apply Oil Eater® floor cleaner directly to the surface and scrub with the machine until the surface is clean. Be sure to properly mark all areas which are being cleaned with wet floor placards.

Mopping Industrial Floors with Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser

Industrial floor mopping is easy with Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser. First, dilute eight parts water to one part floor cleaner. Presoak heavily soiled areas using Oil Eater® Cleaner Degreaser in a 32 oz trigger spray. Next, mop the floor area being sure to wring the mop and to change the mop water often to avoid soil transfer. Finally, be sure that all wet areas have been identified with wet floor placards. If the surface feels slippery after cleaning add more water to the floor cleaning solution.

TIP: In areas where oil or other fluids routinely drip, try using Oil Eater® Tuff Rugs or Absorbent Pads to contain the fluids.
