Oil Extractor is a powerful solvent-based oil spot cleaner with an advanced biodegradable formula that dissolves, encapsulates and removes petroleum and food-based oil and grease stains. Its environmentally friendly and phosphate-free formula safely replaces many harsh acid-based cleaners. Due to Oil Extractor’s alkaline nature, it will help neutralize acid-based detergents and cleaners. Oil Extractor can be used outside, on old and new, horizontal or vertical surfaces to remove stains before cleaning the surface overall with Surebond’s SureClean or Efflo Off. Oil Extractor’s Clean Rinse Technology allows oil and cleaner residue to be quickly and easily rinsed away with a low or high pressure washer. Oil Extractor is ready-to-use and should not be diluted. It is safe to use on surfaces sealed with Surebond sealers.
Suitable for concrete and clay pavers, flat and stamped concrete, masonry, natural and manufactured stone, segmental retaining wall blocks, concrete walls and exposed aggregate. Can also be used on tile, terrazzo and stucco. Safe to use on old or new surfaces in outside environments. Use caution on sensitive surfaces such as wet cast pavers and stamped concrete as it may cause damage to color of the surface. Not for use on asphalt. Test first to verify suitability and dwell time before cleaning the entire surface.
Oil Extractor is compatible with all Surebond Sealers with proper dwell time and application. Misuse may cause damage to the sealer. A test area is always recommended to determine product suitability and compatibility with your specific surface before use and also if desired results are achievable.

Oil Extractor Helpful Information
Remove all loose soil and debris from the surface. Inspect area for visible staining to determine stain types and quantity. Cover and protect adjacent and surrounding surfaces not intended to be cleaned. TEST FIRST: Before using Oil Extractor, test on a small inconspicuous area following the application instructions to determine suitability and correct dwell time needed for your surface. Allow test area to dry thoroughly before evaluating final appearance and results.
Clean when air and surface temperatures are 40° F or above. If freezing conditions exist, allow time for the surface to thaw. If air temperatures exceed 90° F, flash cool the surface with water before applying product. Do not allow product to dry on a hot surface. Rinse thoroughly while cleaner is still wet on the surface. Always perform a pre-test (refer to Pre-Test Instructions).
Application Tools: mixing cup or small pail and clean white rags or paper towels to make a poultice, clean stiff bristle brush, cold or hot water pressure washer with 25° to 40° tip or garden hose with nozzle
Application Instructions: Oil Extractor is designed for one application cleaning. Additional cleanings may be needed to remove heavier, deep-set stains. Do not dilute. Agitate Oil Extractor by stirring or shaking tightly covered container prior to use. Pour Oil Extractor on the stain so that it extends ½” to 1” past the visible stain. If necessary, use a brush to evenly distribute the cleaner. Make a poultice in the mixing container by placing enough clean white rags or towels to cover the stain. Add Oil Extractor to saturate the poultice material. Apply the poultice material so that it completely covers the stain. Let dwell for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, lift a corner of the poultice material. Oil should be visible on the bottom of the material. Add additional Oil Extractor if the cleaner is starting to dry out. Agitate the stain with a stiff bristle brush. Turn the poultice material over and recover the stain. Let dwell for an additional 15 to 30 minutes. Remove the poultice material and rinse surface thoroughly. For best results, use a hot water pressure washer to draw out and further break down stains. A cold water pressure washer or garden hose with nozzle may be used as substitutes. Only use as much pressure needed to thoroughly clean surface. Excessive high pressures can damage substrate. Continue with overall cleaning of the surface with SureClean or Efflo Off.
Rinse all tools and overspray thoroughly with water before product dries.
