Degreasing Industrial Kitchen

I have to replace 40 square feet of quarry stone tile in an industrial kitchen. My dilemna comes in where the tiles have to be replaced- underneath the deepfryers. Currently there is a piece of stainless steel there which they want lifted and then the area retiled. I am very concerned about the state of the slab underneath, because I am sure that it has been deeply penetrated with grease. This job has to be done in one night so the restaurant can open again the next morning, my question- will an industrial degreaser / acid wash work or will I have to scarify the slab to ensure a proper bond? If I do use a wash, does the slab need a certain time to dry?

Marcus,

Degreese first, then scarify. I don't beleive acid wash will work.

Castrol makes an excellent degreaser, it's like 409 on steroids. You can pick it up at an auto parts store. 1/2 gallon for $7.00. It does wonders on concrete.

Good luck,

They also make a industrial simple green that works great. I have bought it at Auto Zone.
