Water is part of your life. It is in our bodies and our oceans. Luckily for us, water can be slightly acidic or slighty alkaline if using salt water.
We use water for cleaning light dust and light soils from floors. Water can clean numerous Surfaces quite well. For heavier soils it is best to use a chemical cleaning agent in the water that will help break down the bonds that hold the heavy oily soils to the floor.
Another option for people that do not want to use powerful alkaline cleaners or solvents is to simply use a neutral cleaning agent.A neutral cleaning agent should have its PH close or similar to water, ideally, be odourless and be non-toxic.
For many people, the concern about chemicals, allergens and odours have led them to clean with just water. Using a microfiber cloth dampened with water is one of the best alternatives today. Microfiber cloths typically pick up a lot more than regular clothes. The reason is in the material.
Microfiber clothes are either made of nylon or polyester, with fibers blended into microscopic strands. Space between the strands is used to lift and trap dirt as well as liquids.
When carpet cleaning, KnuWhizz uses low to mid pressure water and a specialised cleaning chemical suited for each carpet type. Carpets can be cleaned with just water if no chemicals are available. This pressurized water helps to penetrate into the carpet and bind with dirty soils and chemicals.
Carpet Cleaning with Hot Water vs. Cold Water?
In general cleaning with hot water can help lift more soils and stains out of carpet than cold water. Cleaning with hot water is best with a microfiber cloth. Provided the carpet is not wool, hot water can be used to provide an improved clean.
For Example:- when you clean the grease from your fying pan, run very hot water. This very hot water has a high temperature and, therefore, a higher kinetic energy. The atoms with the higher energy help to loosen bonds between sticky and oily compounds.
In the end, cleaning with water has many advantages and very few if any disadvantages and should be considered a part of any cleaning regime.
