The Science Behind Clean Floors: How Tineco Wet and Dry Vacuums Make Homes Clutter-Free

11/10/23 by Tineco Lifestyle Contributor


We all know how hard cleaning can be. Scrubbing floors, sweeping, and mopping all take time and energy. Other tasks like wiping down surfaces and polishing furniture must be done with great care. Some surfaces should be sanitized for health and safety reasons. Glass requires a lot of care to avoid smudging. But because feet track in dirt and germs, floors require the greatest care of all.


Thankfully, there are Tineco wet and dry vacuums. These handy devices are designed to handle the toughest jobs, from dirt and grease removal to everyday messes. This vacuum mop-in-one system is great for hardwood floors and laminated floors.



The Science Behind Clean Floors


Clean floors are essential for your home and they create an environment that's safe, healthy, and presentable. Clean floors ward off germs, reduce bacteria, and decrease allergens.


Floors are high-traffic areas where people track in dirt, mud, and pollutants. In fact, pollutants not only travel on our shoes but our clothes as well. Keeping them clean on a routine basis improves personal health and safety.


Regular cleaning keeps your floors looking shiny and new. The more you clean them, the more you can target those hard to reach areas. Routine cleaning keeps floor surfaces from getting scratched by removing tough particles like dust and sand.

Surface Chemistry


Dirt is a complex mixture of organic compounds, including mud, grime, grease, and various other substances. These elements adhere to your floor due to several reasons, often reacting with other chemicals like oil or solid food residues. Sticky substances, such as syrup or honey, act as adhesives, further attracting and binding dirt.


It's also worth noting that dirt is frequently tracked indoors and embedded into the floor, leading to stubborn stains and making cleaning more challenging.


Cleaning Agents


Cleaning agents are essential for effective floor cleaning. They consist of chemicals and chemical compounds created for the purpose of breaking down and removing surface dirt. There are four different types of powerful cleaning agents:

        Surfactants: Surfactants loosen dirt by lessening water tension and allowing it to cover the entire floor surface. This action makes hardened soil and particles much easier to remove.

        Solvents: Solvents break up molecular bonds to remove tough oils and grease. They deep clean dirt and grime to make your floor shine.

        ph Adjusters: ph Adjusters help surfactants and solvents achieve maximum results in cleaning. They break down dirt and eliminate it. Alkaline cleaners combat grease and oil while acidic cleaners target mineral residue.

        Enzymes: Enzymes target food stains, pet waste, and other organic matter. Their mission is to target organic matter and dissolve it before cleaning.


Cleaning Mechanisms


Now that you know the basics, let's explore the methods. There are several cleaning techniques you can use to keep your floors clean and shiny.

        Mechanical Action: This is what you physically do to clean your floors. It involves sweeping, mopping, and in some cases, vacuuming. Each of these actions targets dirt, grime, and particles for removal.

        Chemical Action: A cleaning compound is applied to a floor surface for cleaning. A certain solution is used to remove dirt, grime, and bacteria from your floors.

        Suspension and Emulsion: Used to suspend dirt and keep it from reappearing on your floors again. Liquid is applied as a surfactant that guards against dirt settling back in.


Innovations in Floor Cleaning


Over 150 years ago, the concept of a steam cleaner emerged to tackle grime on heavy machinery. Using pure water vapor, it could effectively remove even the most tenacious dirt from factory surfaces. This cleaning method soon found its way into railways, ships, and automobiles for engine maintenance. Italian boiler companies took note of its efficiency and recognized steam's potential as a powerful cleaning agent.


Before long, vapor cleaners became a staple in US homes, offering a potent solution for cleaning and sanitizing floors. These "steam cleaners," as they came to be known, relied solely on water to dissolve stubborn dirt and grime.


Today, advancements in technology have paved the way for even more effective cleaning solutions. Tineco's extensive range of products harnesses wet-dry mop vacuum technology, ensuring swift and efficient cleaning.
