A concrete floor is usually made rough and hard in order for it to withstand the rough use, constant wear and tear, and the constant movement of heavy vehicles. The composition of the floor is such that it is much tougher than the rather delicate alternatives of marble and tiles. Although concrete floors are easy to maintain, there is yet, some amount of use and abuse that takes place due to which one needs to clean and maintain them. However, the age old concepts of soap- water and mop doesn’t work here. A rather large variety of concrete cleaning chemicals are available, that are specially designed to remove any kind of stain, mark, or any other kind of contamination from your concrete surfaces.
Concrete requires cleaning because of its porous surface that makes it hold dust, water, and other particles really well. This causes the floor to weaken by the time, if not taken care of. There are a host of concrete cleaning chemicals available to choose from. One should invest in a bit of research in order to buy a concrete cleaning chemical that best suits the flooring according to the area, size, and amount of cleaning required.
To begin with, a pH- neutral cleaner is a mild cleaner, primarily designed to help clean the interior as well as the exterior surfaces that do not have embedded dirt in it. It is used only when the surface requires mild cleaning, where no major dirt or any kind of contamination is present.
An acidic cleanser, as the name suggests, helps in removing the dirt marks, paint, and other stains from the flooring by virtue of the soluble acidic solution. It is also an effective way to remove efflorescence on concrete, which cannot be removed by using plain water. These solutions are available in ready- to- use forms as well as concentrated solutions, which can be applied directly to the area that needs cleaning.
Apart from the aforementioned cleansers, there is a specialtyclenser available that is a blend of two or more varieties of cleaner types. Non- acidic based efflorescence cleansers/removers, as well as rust removers, are just some examples of the cleaners in this category. Although they are a bit hard to find as compared to the other cleaners, they have proved to be more effective as concrete cleaning chemicals.
