1CLEANER families use a cleaning product

The cleaner is divided into three main families of a chemical point of view. We distinguish the cleaner "Alk" or "Basic", the cleaner "Neutral", the cleaner "acid".

The cleaner "Alk" or "Basic" are characterized by a hydrogen potential (pH) of more than 8.
These cleaners are usually strippers, cleaning ovens, degreasers, detergents, liquid car wash ...
The lower the pH will be higher than product is "Alkaline". Bleach is a highly alkaline product. Beyond 11.5, it is considered that the product is within the scope of highly alkaline cleaning product.

The cleaner "acid" are characterized by a hydrogen potential (pH) of less than 6.
These cleaners are usually descaling gel toilet, bathroom ... DETARTRANT acting against limestone.
We also find the washing machine descaling or cafetiere.
It also notes the need to be wary of highly effective cleaner against the limestone are often overload in hydrochloric acid, phosphoric or another, and thus can attack your surfaces and fittings.
A cleaning product having a pH lower than 4 is considered strongly acidic.

The cleaning said "neutral" are products whose hydrogen potential (pH) is between 6 and 8.
These cleaners are usually used on fragile soils, fragile surfaces.
Found both on cosmetic products (savon. ..).
Surfaces such as floors protected by a thermoplastic emulsion must be an interview with a cleaning product called neutral.
These cleaners are usually less effective, but does not attack your surfaces.

The action of cleaning is not the only element of success of your cleaning.

Indeed, even a cleaning product used manually or with a machine (scrubber, burnisher ...) will not have the same efficiency. If you add a mechanical action action your cleaning product, then you can reduce the dose of cleaner or take a less aggressive cleaning product (eg cleaning product ecolabel).

In the same vein, a cleaning product used hot or cold will not have the same effectiveness.
Such as your washing machine, dishwasher or even washing your vehicle.

Another parameter of the proper use of cleaning product is the time for action. The more you leave time to the cleaning time to act, the less you have to act mechanically (rubbing action with or without machine.)
