Before scratching your DIY itch, contact your contractor first. They can tell you the best guidelines for specific types of stains. Consider testing the cleaning method on the most inconspicuous area of your driveway. Wear protective gear and follow the manufacturer’s instructions when applying a specific cleaning agent.
When working with fresh oil stains, experts usually agree that you should blot the oil with rags, paper towels, or any granular material that absorbs oil, being careful not to scrub the stain in.
You can then apply a dish soap or laundry detergent and let it sit there for 20-30 minutes. Scrub the area with a soft-bristled brush to avoid scratching the surface. Rinse with hot water and repeat the process until the stain is removed completely.
If all else fails, don’t fret! You can always take off and replace the heavily-stained brick. However, you might want to hire a pro to do this. I suggest going to ValeLandscapingandPaving.co.uk. They are well known for installing brick driveways in Redditch.
