Chemical Cleaning is required to remove all the impurities in our surroundings. The cleaning chemicals include detergents, cleaners, soaps, disinfectants, and spot removers. Some cleaners have added features like sterilizers and deodorizers. While purchasing a cleaner, make sure that you are buying the right type of cleaner for your purpose.
Understanding the Chemical Reaction
Disinfectant cleaner: It is required for cleaning up the floor and it has the power to prevent germs and bacteria from spreading on the floor. When you use this cleaner you should follow certain precautions like, if the cleaner is being used for bathroom then disinfectant solution should be used instead of detergent. And if it is for any type of food service then sterilizing solution should be used. You need to do so because chemicals contained in disinfectant and sanitizer are considered to be hazardous and can harm human health badly. So before you apply these chemicals in your cleaning process always make sure that you know about their side effects.
Surfactant is a very important ingredient present in cleaning solution and it helps in the absorption of the chemicals present in the surface tension of a cleaning chemical. It is mainly used in cleaning detergents, deodorizers and spot removers. If a surfactant is weak then it will not allow the chemicals to get absorbed into the surface of the cloth. When this happens then it may leave a residue behind on the surface of the cloth, which will in turn irritate your eyes. So, when you are purchasing a cleaning solution to make sure that it has the required level of surfactant so that it can be used without any negative effect on your eyes.
Some cleaning materials will have additives present in them such as gluing, Oil or Water. These additives are known as Coatings and will react with other cleaners creating some type of chemical reaction. These reactions will then create fumes and are commonly referred to as Black Agents. When you use chemicals to ensure that you know the chemicals involved and their working procedure. This way you will be able to prevent any damage or injury from occurring.
