The Case for Using StoneClean™ “104”

Years ago the Tile Council of America president Bob D. called me one day. I had given him a sample Qt. Bottle of “104” to use. He told me that their new office tile floor was hard to get clean of installation residues.

The first words that came out of his mouth were words I would not repeat. Oh I thought what happened” He told me ” The night cleaning crew used the sample you gave me and it cleaned the floor so it finally looks brand new” wow I thought now my sales will really take off! No he wanted us to pay for mentioning anything or to pay for advertising of which I had no budget for at the time.

 

This report is to add to the support of using StoneClean™ “104” in various areas of cleaning. It will show that quality pays and quality works! It will divide the cleaning into two basic categories

1) Daily Cleaning/ Surface Preparation

2) Degreasing cleans.

Both will strengthen the case for “104”!

For other information concerning the StoneCleanÔ Conc. line of cleansers please refer to the reports StoneClean Overview & Cleaning Chemistry plus the product brochure as well

 

Daily Cleaning/ Surface Preparation

 

SALT FREE: Salts are typically used to add extra activity to cleaners (as an extra “grabber”). Many neutral cleaners are not neutral in the bottle – but become neutral when the salts react out. This is when the products “die” or are no longer active in cleaning ability. StoneClean “104” has NO SALTS and NO SOAPS (report on cleaning chemistry). Not only is StoneClean™  “104” neutral pH but more important is that “104” is a continuously active product! Its’ activity doesn’t stop when it is in dilution or on the floor! This trade secret formulation is why ones notice that it cleans effectively even at a 1 to 128 dilution or even weaker!

StoneClean “104” is a Salt Free Cleanser

WHY SALT FREE?

 

Salt residues left in the floor can cause problems later. This is especially true when considering any surface treatment such as an impregnator or sealer or wax. No sealer is totally impermeable! Over time there will be some up down and down up hydroscopy (vapor movement). If salts are left in the substrate, continuing “wetting” and resulting “activation” can eventually create a) efflorescence and or b) “color shift”.

Extra salts can also hasten the process of re-soiling of the substrate.

 

 

RESIDUE FREE CLEANS!

 

Now the daily cleans go FASTER & more efficient with “104”. Also there is better surface adhesion and bonding when further treating the floor after a deep cleaning. Using “104” as the final RINSE before applying any impregnator or sealer/wax will produce better results! Also the substrate can be brought back to a neutral pH where it should be most of the time!   

 

Degreasing Cleans

 

NEUTRAL pH BUT EFFECTIVE

 

Don’t let the neutral pH fool you into thinking that it has no punch! Don’t let the fact that it is FAST in ENVIRONMENTAL BREAKDOWN fool you into thinking that it can’t work like the caustic ones! Even at a 1 to 64 dilution it can effectively remove heavy grease and grime!

 

NO RESIDUES

 

A lot of degreasers contain d-limonene (citrus) which will leave residues in the substrate that will stay in the floor as an oil grabbing terpene. (the clean look but sticky feel) This will help keep the floor cleaner LONGER!

 

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE DEGREASING

 

Consider a few commonly used degreasing agents.

 

Organic Solvents: This class of grease-cutters are mostly of synthetic origin (organic refers to their petroleum origins). They pollute the environment!

Butyl cellosolve: A toxic synthetic solvent and grease cutter that can irritate mucous membranes and cause liver and kidney damage. Not earth friendly!

 

Aromatic hydrocarbons: These synthetic grease cutters are members of the benzene family of chemicals! They contaminate air and groundwater. (they cannot easily evaporate underground and are difficult to biodegrade)

 

High pH Degreasers: Caustic soda like products abound in the market place. pH as high as 14 have been used. These types of degreasers can quick damage a floor.

 

Now the best overall degreaser in the world! StoneClean™ “104” and did I mention that  “104” is extremely fast in environmental breakdown! Order a gallon today and see why I say it is the most powerful neutral pH cleanser in the world!

StoneClean™ & Strip Safe & Effective Deep Cleaning Action

Excellent Deep Cleaning Action that is Safe Even for Polished Marble!

 

Give StoneClean™ & Strip a Try:

 

What makes tile and stone floors (and grout) so hard to clean? 

 

There are Several Reasons:

 

  • Using daily cleansers that can’t float the dirt/grime out of the more porous grout & tile and stone surfaces
  • using cleansers that contain detergents that resettle in lower grout joints and deposit some of the dirt with each cleaning the resulting “soap scum” created by cleansers containing Potassium or Sodium Salts. These environmentally unsound cleansers can create more problems than they solve.
  • Periodic waxing and build-up of wax residues in the grouting-typical waxes tend to trap and weld in dirt so the build-up only makes the problem worse
  • the past use of “grout sealers” that contain silicone – silicone based sealers can actually trap and weld in dirt/grease into silicone that are “free”(not bound to the grouting) Also some contain additives that over time whiten or create a haze that is difficult to remove
  • not using the proper equipment to clean with that can agitate into the joints
  • the past use of acidic grout cleaners that make the grouting more porous and easier to re-soil (acids don’t clean they etch).
  • What is needed then is proper / right cleaning chemistry to help both deep clean and to maintain the tile and stone & grouting.  StoneClean™ & Strip uses a sophisticated formulation that is comprised of chemicals which create a three step cleaning process to “bite” the contamination and carry it off the surface
  • StoneClean™ & Strip contains a wide spectrum of surfactants that are geared for the widest range of contamination. How can it clean so well without harsh chemicals or without being acidic or high on the pH scale?
  • Ideal for initial deep cleaning of stone, tile, grout, & concrete! WHY?
  • Two of the formulation chemicals, brought down to the surface of the stone/tile through the water solution by a “heavy” molecule ingredient, provides “bite” on oil based substances. (breaking surface tension with the heavy ingredient is key to letting the ingredients do their job)
  • The blend of surfactants takes the oils plus a total spectrum of contamination & brings them into solution with the water.
  • The surfactant-bound particles then tie in a packet or “micelle” with the ingredient added that then floats them away from the substrate. An additional chemical serves to keep the bound particles in solution so that they can be mopped away!
  • The StoneClean™ & Strip Difference:
  • No Residues StoneClean™ & Strip (pH of approx. 10) often removes coatings that high pH strippers can’t. Some strippers have a pH of 11 (1,000 times more alkaline) or higher.   Liquids have a property called surface tension. A thin razor blade floats in water because of high surface tension. Add a few drops of soap to the water and the razor blades instantly sinks to the bottom. Surfactants are classified by their ionic (electrical charge) properties in water: anionic (negative charge), nonionic (no charge), cationic (positive charge) and amphoteric (either positive or negative charge). Most soaps are anionic. After Care with StoneClean™ “60” will prevent the floor from being heavily soiled again.
  • Please give StoneClean™ & Strip a try!
  • StoneClean Concentrates are nonionic!. Proper / right cleaning chemistry will help to both deep clean and to maintain the tile and stone & grouting.
  • High surface tension inhibits the cleaning process. Reducing the surface tension increases the cleaning effectiveness. Surfactants (surface active agents) reduce surface tension. They make water “wetter.” Surfactants perform other tasks. They loosen and emulsify (dissolve into water) and suspend dirt and oils in solution to be rinsed away.
  • SOAP & DETERGENT CHEMISTRY
  • The higher the alkalinity, the more care is needed to prevent damage to the surfaces! (Use of pH 11 or higher on polished marble is not recommended!)
  • StoneClean Concentrates are crafted in an exacting way to avoid the common “pitfalls” of basic cleaning chemistry. They are able to accomplish a wide variety of cleaning tasks SAFELY without using caustic chemistry and without leaving cleaning RESIDUES.
  • The exacting way in which these ingredients are blended together allows them to do the work in this three in one step cleaning action!!

StoneClean”60″™ The Best Polished Marble Cleanser on the Market Today!

SC 60

StoneClean”60″™ The Best Polished Marble Cleanser on the Market Today!

“Simply The Best Maintenance Cleanser on the Market!”

Janitorial Companies:

Your task is to care successfully for the floors and surfaces that you have been hired to clean. Using the best chemistry to clean with will reward you with better customer satisfaction. You may be able to solve cleaning care issues that the previous contractor was not able to deal with successfully. Your reputation will grow, as will your business.

 

Tile Contactors & Dealers:

Both jobs are really not done at the point of sale or installation. Giving direction on the care of the floor is key to a complete job done. Imagine a car dealer saying “See you next time you’re in the market to buy a car” Maintenance is key to a long life use of the care the same as with a floor: dirt happens!

 

The Choice Matters:

There are a myriad of products on the market that claim they clean well! Janitorial supply houses have a warehouse full of products they represent. Slick ads and commercials sell many products that would be better left in the bottle than on the floor. Also many tout them as “Organic”, “Green” , “Environmentally Friendly” , and so forth. Please read my other posts on “Surface Protection, Surface Maintenance” and Environmental statements about the StoneClean™ line of Concentrates. The choice matters in that the end result of days, weeks, and months of using the right or wrong chemistry will ultimately show on the floor appearance.

Ask yourself: Am I happy with the appearance of the floor I care for or for the floor I sold or installed (is the customer happy in other words in this case).

 

Give StoneClean “60” a try:

Often we don’t realize that something could be better till we actually try the product. People become brand loyal because they have found in their case the product works better than any they have tried before. Now consider a few points about why I believe you should give StoneClean “60” a try in your home or business.

 

The Case for Using StoneClean “60”

 

  1. No detergent Residues- this means that likely you will not have to rinse the floor to rid it of residues. Remember that detergents react with hard water to form soap scum. Could you tile, marble, or even your word floor not be as shiny and clean looking as it had in the past?
  2. Free rinse-ability. The chemistry make- up of the cleanser allows for it to be released into the mop with the dirt better than any on the market. This adds more value to point one!
  3. Non-ionic surfactant based means it will be effective in either hard or soft waters. Surfactant based means it makes the water wetter and can have greater contact with the floor and the dirt.
  4. Floating action of capturing the dirt. The dirt will actually be captured and helped to float to the surface where the mop can remove it totally. Case in point is the floor grouting. One client in Kansas City was cleaning a polished marble floor in a business. I told her that StoneClean & Strip would clean the grout safely. She told me that every time she uses StoneClean™ “60” that grout comes a little cleaner with each time!

 

In addition to the four basic listed benefits, StoneClean “60” contains an extremely small amount of an insoluble organic which sinks to the surface of the stone. This substantially alters the hydroscopic (water extracting) effect of cleaning on the surface & leaves a very, very slight, totally clear moisturizing layer. Thus cleaning is achieved without dehydration of the stone/tile!

It is this same chemistry, which also generally eliminates the need for rinse because the water evaporates from above the stone/tile instead of from inside the pores of the stone/tile.

This gentle yet effective cleaning action makes StoneClean “60” a must for floors with coatings/waxes. The dirt is lifted out of the finish so when buffed later the shine is not compromised by embedded dirt that has gotten “buffed” in to the floor.

StoneClean “60” used on a daily basis or weekly for home use will help maintain the clean look to the floor grout.  Since it is effective even in high dilution ratios, it is also very cost effective!

Please give StoneClean™ “60” a try. You will like the results!
