Cleaner, faster, better: how foam cleaning gets the job done

cleaning using industrial foam cleaning

When it comes to industrial cleaning, sometimes powerful pressure washers or harmful chemicals aren’t suitable for the job. In factories, for example, there might be delicate or expensive machinery to consider. So what do you use instead?

The answer is foam.

What is foam cleaning, and how does it work

Foam cleaning is a highly effective and efficient cleaning method that is used to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants from surfaces. It is especially popular and useful in the food and beverage, healthcare, and industrial cleaning industries.

Foam cleaning can be used on a range of surfaces, including carpets, upholstery, and fabric. It is also an effective cleaning method for removing dirt and stains from walls, floors, and other hard surfaces.

Once the foam is applied to the surface, it is allowed to sit for a while, giving it time to break down the dirt. It’s then simply rinsed off with water, leaving the surface clean and dirt-free.

Advantages of foam cleaning

There are several advantages to using foam cleaning over traditional cleaning methods.

Effectiveness: Foam cleaning is highly effective at removing dirt, oil and grime from surfaces. The foam is designed to penetrate and break down dirt particles, making it easier to clean the surface.

Efficiency: Foam cleaning requires less time and effort than traditional cleaning methods, making it more efficient to use. Once the foam is applied to the surface, it does most of the work, meaning you can move on to other tasks while the foam is doing its job.

Versatility: Foam can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including carpets, upholstery, and even kitchen appliances. This versatility makes it an ideal cleaning method for a range of industries.

More precise: Spraying foam into hard-to-reach places is a lot easier than trying to reach them with a scrubbing brush. Nooks and crannies are more accessible and easier to clean with foam.

Less damage: Pressure washing or using harsh chemicals can damage certain surfaces, such as painted walls. Foam, on the other hand, is a gentler cleaning method that is less likely to cause damage.

Reduced water usage: Foam uses significantly less water than traditional washing, making it a more environmentally friendly option. This is especially important in areas where water usage is restricted, such as during droughts or in areas where the use of water might be dangerous because of electronics.

Safer cleaning method: Foam cleaning is a safer cleaning method compared to pressure washing, especially when working around people, animals, or sensitive equipment. High-pressure water can be dangerous, causing injuries or damage to property if not used properly.

The science behind foam cleaning

The science behind foam cleaning lies in the chemical composition of the cleaning agent used. The foam contains a surfactant, which is a compound that allows you to clean grease or oil.

The foam penetrates deeper, removing dirt, grease and oils on a molecular level. On top of that, the agent used might also contain other ingredients that help to break down the dirt and grime, such as enzymes and/or solvents.

Give your business a good clean!

When it comes to cleaning factories and places of work, the focus is usually on the machinery and equipment, but when was the last time your carpets were washed? What about the upholstery?

The last time the place was power-washed, did you get into all the little crevices and hard-to-reach areas? Probably not, because that’s not what a pressure washer is for. To really give your business a good clean, you need foam to get where other traditional washing tools can’t.

Foam’s versatility and effectiveness make it an ideal cleaning method for a range of surfaces and industries. It penetrates deep into fibres, making it perfect for carpets and upholstery. It uses very little water compared to the usual methods, meaning it can be used around electronics. The foam cleans and sanitises wherever you spray it, covering a wall or those tight little spaces where dirt likes to gather.
