How do I prevent Oil Stains on My Garage Floor?

Carpet MatsWe get a lot of calls from customers who are looking for ways to prevent oil stains on their garage floor but they do not necessarily want to cover their whole garage floor with a mat. The question becomes is there an effective way to prevent oil from seeping into the concrete without covering the entire surface.

One option would be the use of a good concrete sealer. Sealers are great for protecting the entire floor at a relatively low price, but they do not resist 100% of all the liquid that falls on them.

If you are able to isolate the oil leak, battery acid or other containment, an Oil Dri Garage Guard product may be ideal. They are an inexpensive carpet like mat with a polyvinyl backing. The carpet absorbs the leaking fluids and the polyvinyl keeps the fluid from leaking through the mat. If Oil Dri mats are to small or if you can’t identify where the leak is coming from, then an Oil Absorbent Garage mat may be a better solution.

If your like main home owners and your floor is already stained, we have found Pour N Restore very effective for removing different types of stains.
