Different cleaners are needed depending on the amount of grease, oil, chemicals, or other residue that is present. Degreasing is needed when this residue becomes a hazard or is causing corrosion, for example.
- Water-Based—This cleaner is also known as an aqueous degreaser and uses various detergents to clean materials. Many degreasers consist of acidic compounds, but that doesn’t always work if the contaminated materials are a weak material, such as plastics. Aqueous cleaners can still remove residue like oil, grease, dirt, and chemicals. They’re typically non-flammable and are a good option for cleaning in food preparation industry since there are no acidic chemicals involved.
- Solvent-Based— When your facility has extremely heavy grease or oil, a solvent-based degreaser is likely the best option for you. This type of degreaser tends to be made up of petroleum, alcohols, or a combination of chemicals—this degreaser is typically flammable, so extreme caution is needed when using these types of cleaners. Solvent-based degreasers are commonly used in metalworking industries like auto body shops, for example.
Both types of cleaners can be applied by spraying, wiping, brushing, or immersing, but for degreasing walls and floors, we typically use the spraying method. The experts at Enviro-Air will know which type of degreaser should be used for your industry, so there’s no need to worry about having to make the decision yourself! Safety is our top priority, and you can be rest assured that we’ll get your facility back to being a clean environment for workers.
