What Chemicals for Industrial Cleaning Machines?

In this blog you will learn just some of the common chemicals for industrial cleaning machines. While cleaning machines are impressive, the use of chemical agents is just as important if you hope to defeat stubborn stains. With this in mind, let’s look at what types of chemicals are used in Nilfisk and Karcher cleaning machines.



The Alkaline Edge

Most industrial floor cleaners will use a combination of alkaline chemicals in their formulation. Alkaline agents are non-acidic in nature, so they will not damage the associated surface. They are normally safer to work when compared to acidic cleaning solutions such as those utilized to remove inorganic deposits.

Also mixing these agents with other chemicals can be dangerous; harmful gases such as chlorine may be accidentally liberated.

Acidic Solutions

Some surfaces such as concrete or stone might require agents that include acids. Hydrochloric acid and acetic acid (vinegar) could both be employed depending upon the material. Although these solutions are generally diluted, care should still be taken when performing any cleaning task.


It only makes sense that detergents are often present alongside the chemicals mentioned above. Detergents will help to remove stubborn grime, and many are formulated in such a way as to provide a shine to the surface of the flooring.

Solutions to Remove Grease

Grease can become a real concern, mostly found on floors within restaurants and food storage facilities. In this case, the addition of degreasing agents may be needed within the cleaning solution. Some of these might be based within a solvent while others could be organic in nature (especially if they are to be used around foods.
