Neutra Clean is a neutral pH Cleaner
Neutra Clean like most cleaning solutions falls into one of three categories: Acid, Alkaline or Neutral. The pH scale measures acidity or alkalinity; the scale has a range of 1 to 14. A pH of 7 is neutral, a pH of less than 7 is acidic, and a pH of 7 or greater is alkaline.
Different cleaners are formulated by manufacturers as acidic or alkaline because of the effectiveness of cleaning or dissolving various types of material. For example, Oven Cleaners are formulated to be strongly alkaline. Alkaline solutions are effective at breaking down baked-on protein, fat and other types of carbonized material found in dirty ovens. Toilet cleaners tend to be acidic which does a better job at dissolving water scale and rust.
Safety of High and Low pH chemicals
Solutions with high or low pH levels have the potential to dangerous to people. If ingested, inhaled or contacted with the skin these solutions can cause significant health problems. Also with strongly acidic or alkaline solutions it may damage or burn certain materials when the solution comes in contact with them. The fumes from high or low pH cleaning products can be transported via HVAC air ducts and travel through an entire facility. The fumes from these cleaners may cause the occupants of the facility to experience loss of productivity, poor concentration and in extreme cases evacuation of the facility.
A pH Neutral Cleaner
A neutral pH cleaner like Neutra-clean has some safety advantage over solutions that are high or low alkaline. A natural pH cleaner may be safer but may not be as effective on all types of material.
