Enzymatic cleaning-enzymes are not living organisms. Proteins-enzymes help breaks down all natural materials and make them smaller pieces. Enzymes allow the microbes to process their food faster. That’s why California Clean and Seal uses a bioactive maintenance product that has a combination of microbes and enzymes.

Examples of Microbes Doing Their Work

Products that include the use of Microbe-based mixtures show to successfully remove those hard to get stains. California Clean and Seal use alternative BIO products to break the oil stains. This allows the microbes to do most of the heavy cleaning by getting rid of all that nasty oil. Oil stains on stamped concrete cannot be removed easily. Oil stains penetrate the concrete, luckily in some situations, microbes eat the oil and all the stains left on stamped concrete. Other companies only use harmful chemical based products.

The horizon of environmental concerns in recent years has improved greatly which has given no other choice than to use bioremediation technology. Bioremediation is a “treatment that uses naturally occurring organisms to break down hazardous substances into less toxic or non-toxic substances”. The use of bioremediation microbes can get rid of the stains safely and properly without the use of any harsh chemicals.


How Does the Bioremediation Process Work?

Microbes process their ‘food’ in a way similar to us. They look for their preferred food source, which usually consists of oils, grease, and urine. Then they digest it, and like most creatures on earth, they get rid of the waste, except that in the microbes case their waste is water.

Microbial Cleaning Solutions

For stamped concrete/natural concrete cleaning purposes, you can target what needs to be cleaned by choosing a product that contains microbes specifically for that cleaning application.

Just like humans, different microbes like a different variety of foods. Some microbes like oil, some like grease. This is why there are bioactive cleaners products for different issues and different surfaces. An auto body shop will use a cleaning formula that rapidly digests oil to clean the build up oil stains on the concrete.

Bioremediation process works with microbial-based cleaning products. Using microbes also means that you are cleaning with a reduced environmental impact, the use of nature’s cleaners are more natural with no chemicals.
