Are You Cleaning or Damaging Your Surface? 

Did you know polished concrete, coated concrete, natural stone timber and many vinyl floors/surface should NOT be cleaned with many conventional cleaner or home remedies?

Common incorrect cleaning practices or methods can: leave a greasy film across your surface, alter, bleach or yellow your surface.

Or totally break down and your surface leaving it textured, rough & degraded!

Below I will explain how to clean your polished concrete and how not to, ensuring your surface looks amazing for years to come.

Traditional cleaning methods are NOT suitable for
polished concrete, natural stone, and most coated surfaces.

 

This is because they are smooth refined surfaces and most traditional cleaning methods work by break down the stain with harsh acids or alkaline.  Effectively bleaching or removing the surface layer of the concrete or natural stone to removeor hide the stain. 

Unfortunately, this degrades the finish and distorts the colour of the refined surface at the same time however this is not generally noticed on "normal" concrete because the surface is already textured, much unlike the perfectly refined floor or surface in your home. 

 

These negative effects can happen immediately or progressively with time depending on the strength and usage of the acid or alkaline being used. 

Traditional concrete cleaners and many homemade solutions use concentrated solutions of: 

Acids for removal of: inorganic matter i.e rust 

(etches / textures & dulls/ whiteness the surface)

or 

Alkaline for removal of: organic matter i.e grease, mould or food waste.  

 (bleaches the surface distorting the colour & potential irreversible damage)

The level of Ph determines how corrosive the solution is! To safely clean most surfaces we need a balanced PH. Not too high not too low. A PH of 6.5-7.5 just right

How Most Cleaning Products Work

Soap based cleaning & detergents have been used for many years to clean floors.

The soap is designed to loosen dirt and greases from the surface where they are rinsed into the mop bucket. 

 

If you have been using this style of cleaner, have you noticed your surface has a film across it that just doesn't go away? 

This is "soap scum" and is a by-product of all soap-based cleaners. Basically, the soap leaves a residue on your surface that is a mixture of dirty water from your mop and soap.

 

This residue acts like glue, trapping and holding dirt, greases and oils to your surface leaving what looks like a dirty cloudy film over your polished concrete or hard surface. 

Soap or Detergant Cleaning

Common cleaning and household products PH levels:

Note: Ph levels can often fall within a range of .5 - 1% due to a number of factors
