The Importance of pH in Carpet CleaningNovember 15, 2021

While the actual cleaning ingredients are very important, understanding the role pH plays may arguably be the most important factor determining the overall performance and safety of the carpet cleaner.pH is a figure expressing the acidity or alkalinity of a solution on a logarithmic scale. The pH scale goes from 0 – 14, with 7 being considered neutral. From 0 up to 7 is considered acidic; from just above 7 up to 14 is considered alkaline. From a practical standpoint, products are considered to be more acid or alkaline the further away from 7 the pH gets. The more acidic or alkaline a product is can help to determine how reactive it is to soils, surfaces, skin, and eyes.Traditionally, alkaline cleaners with a pH of 10 and above have been preferred due to their effectiveness on heavily soiled carpets. At these higher pH levels, an actual chemical reaction known as saponification occurs; organic fats and oils in the soils are converted into a soap when mixed with free alkali (bases) in the cleaners. Common bases used in cleaning products include caustic soda, lye, and sodium silicate. While effective at removing oil based soils from the carpet, high pH cleaners are more corrosive and may damage sensitive fibers and dyes. Most of us can relate to inadvertently using an alkaline cleaner where it shouldn’t be and having to deal with the resulting damage and replacement cost.
