Choose a floor remover
Choosing the right cleaner is essential for a good treatment of your floors. The type of soil to be stripped is the most important parameter for the choice of your stripper product.
Strippers are characterized by their acidity or alkalinity. The composition of the stripper must be compatible with the soil to be treated. It is therefore preferable to have the soil data sheets or the manufacturer's recommendations.
Acid or alkaline remover Thus an acid-based stripper will instead be dedicated to hard floors where the objective will be to remove limescale residues.
Most strippers are on alkaline bases. This means that their pH (hydrogen potential) is greater than 9-10. In this case it is imperative to respect the dilutions and make a preliminary test to avoid any unpleasant surprises (discoloration on plastic floors). These strippers are imperatively rinsed so as not to leave alkalinity on the ground in the case of a waxing (or emulsion).
In recent years, solvent based removers to prevent rinsing with a pH of 8-9 are increasingly used. These strippers help save time and preserve the soil.
