A pH neutral cleaning solution is best used for maintenance cleaning of your tile and grout after it has been deep cleaned and sealed. A pH neutral cleaning solution is preferred for daily or weekly cleanings because it will not break down any sealers that were applied to the grout or tiles. Also a pH neutral cleaner is easy to rinse off the tile and grout and will not leave any cleaning residue on the tile or in the grout.
PH neutral cleaners are safe to use on all types of tile, grout and stone and will not damage or etch even the most delicate stone surfaces. These cleaners are less effective on dirty grout. They are not designed to be used to clean dirty grout but more of a maintenance for grout that has already been professionally cleaned. A true pH neutral solution is a 6.5 – 7.5 on the pH scale, thus are considered to be non-hazardous.
The pH Scale:
The pH scale goes from 0 – 14, with 7 being considered neutral. From 0 up to 7 would be considered acidic and from just above 7 – 14 would be considered alkaline. Technically, the pH is the inverse log of the hydrogen ion concentration. From a practical standpoint, products are considered to be more acid or alkaline the further away from 7 the pH gets. The more acidic or alkaline a product is also can help to determine how reactive it is to skin, eyes and surfaces.
