As a technician, you have to keep up your working standards all the time. Your work quality should be high enough to attract new customers and retain the older ones. It needn’t be emphasized more that your work should be neat and clean with negligible wastages and errors. One way to achieve near-perfection is to work with a few cleaning agents that can be used in various environments. Read this article to know more about this subject.
PVC floors are very popular among shops, offices, hotels, conference venues, and homes. They are inexpensive, have a great finish, and can be installed easily. However, over a period, these floors lose their polish and look jaded. You would need certain equipment to help PVC floors gain their Shane back. Moreover, to operate on these floors and to leave behind a clean room, you need to know about these cleaning agents. Experts such as Mektronics ensure that technical work is not a mess by providing you with a range of tools and equipment. While at work, you can maintain the cleanliness, hygiene, and the texture of your floor with the following cleaners:
1. PVC cleaner- This cleaner washes away stains, tints, and other dirty spots from the surfaces of PVC, Linoleum, and Marmoleum floors. Most business establishments use this substance to make their floors spotless and look fresh. For best results, please mix warm water with your PVC cleaner and spread it with a well-squeezed mop.
2. PVC Polish- As the name suggests, this cleaner polishes your PVC surface. You can use it even if you have a Linoleum or a Marmoleum floor. If your floor is being used intensively, like in a hotel lobby, you can spread this polish evenly- undiluted- on it. Else, you can mix a diluting agent such as water with your polish to make your floor appear surprisingly ‘new’.
3. PVC Polish Remover- Sometimes you would need to remove undesired polish from your floors. To do this, apply a PVC Polish Remover with a clean cloth on the floor. Let the floor soak this remover for a few minutes. Afterwards, you should rub a wet but clean cloth on the surface. If some spots are still remaining after all this rubbing, scrub them away with a wet mop. Some companies also offer a product variant of this Remover for larger floors. If you run a large shop or a hotel, you could opt for this variant.
While the above products are meant for cleaning floors, there are some cleaners, which are used by electrical contractors. These are:
This substance cleans the contacts of electrical equipment. Electrical technicians often need this cleaner to remove dust, dirt, grime, oil, and other substances from the ends/ surfaces of wires, etc. Unless you remove all this dirt, your electrical connections won’t work at their best potential. These impurities are insulators, i.e, they won’t let the electrical current pass through the surface unless they are removed. Contact cleaners are used in relays, metals, contacts, switches, generators, edge connectors, bus bars, circuit breakers, sensors, scales, etc.
Broadly, there are two kinds of contact cleaners- liquid-based and aerosol-based.
Liquid-based cleaners require physical cleaning of the contact.
Aerosol-based cleaners don’t require touching the electrical equipment. You just have to spray the contact cleaner and the impurity goes away.
Sometimes you may need bigger machines to clean vast surfaces. These machines are used in factories, and manufacturing facilities.
One such cleaner is the scrubber. This machine comes in two variants- mechanised and manual. A mechanised scrubber looks like a mini car or truck and has brushes that rotate and clean the dirt. It also has a vacuum system that sucks in loose dirt, a water tank, and a soap tank.
Manual scrubbers don’t have all the above features but can be used manually to unlock lose dirt.
