Problems You May Have When Cleaning With Vinegar

Although vinegar has been highlighted as a great environmentally friendly cleaner, it is important to be aware of a few potential problems that can occur when cleaning with vinegar.

Vinegar has a PH value of 2.4, which makes it considerably acidic. Although it is normally never used in an undiluted form, it still presents a considerable danger to the many homes that have natural stone throughout. Diluting vinegar raises its PH closer to the natural and safe level of 7.0. Typically, you are mixing 1–2 capfuls of vinegar into a bucket of water, turning the dangerous acid into a much milder and safer cleaning agent. The problem arises with the unintentional and undiscovered dripping fully concentrated vinegar onto a stone, such as marble floor. This is an easy mistake to make and can require expensive refinishing to fix.

Vinegar is a very good floor, glass and mirror cleaner and is fairly inexpensive. It won’t do any damage if diluted properly but, to avoid the risk of bringing this acid into a customer’s home, Pensacola Maid Service typically uses products, such as Butecher or Ecolab, that do the job much more safely.
