To safely remove all oil contaminants, first, we vacuum and dry out any water before applying the microbial cleaning solutions. If there is a large amount of standing water with oil, Mr. Genesis will be used to absorb the excess water. This process will reveal what buildup is at the bottom of the elevator pit such as oil, dirt, etc. The sludge must be scraped off before using the microbes. Then the surfaces (walls and floors) need to be sprayed down with water and application of Mr. Surface. Mr. Surface eats hydrocarbons that is, oil, grease, diesel fuel, etc. Usually, it takes about two hours for the microbes to do their work, depending on the amount of oil and grease.

The key advantages of this process are that the Microbial Restoration Services products are environmentally friendly hence preparation time is reduced by 50% due to not having to protect elevator components from the microbial cleaning solution. The concrete floor is free of all oil contaminants after one hour of scrubbing. Mr. Genesis Super Absorbent Polymer is then used to pick up the rinse water. There are no volatile organic compounds, there is no chemical residue left behind, and no neutralizing is needed. Mr. Surface is the professional’s choice for pit cleaning and remediating
