What Type Of Rubber Floor Cleaner Is Best For Use In Gyms?

Lisa Hobbie // 2021

Many gym floors are made of rubber, and the very best type of cleaner to use on them is a neutral pH rubber floor cleaner.

All pH levels are measured on a scale of 0-14, so a perfectly pH neutral cleaner is one where the level is 7 (or between 6 and 8). If it was less than that, it would be acidic, and if it was greater than that, it would be basic or alkaline.

There are many benefits of using a neutral pH but here are the top 6:
  1. pH neutral cleaner will allow you to clean commercial or residential flooring products without causing damage to them - ie. breaking them down or eroding their surfaces
  2. pH neutral cleaner is safe for humans and pets.
  3. pH neutral cleaner can be used on all surfaces, not just rubber. So, it’s extremely versatile.
  4. pH neutral cleaner is not harmful to the environment.
  5. pH neutral cleaner can be easily rinsed off without leaving harmful or potentially hazardous residue.
  6. pH neutral cleaner is an effective cleaner. It can be used as a degreaser in many situations.

Greatmats offers one of the best pH neutral cleaners available anywhere - EClean Low Foam All Purpose cleaner.

E-Clean is an almost perfectly pH neutral cleaner that is super concentrated. It is available in a cost-saving one-gallon container, and not only can it be used on your black or colored rubber gym mat and tile products, it’s also a good cleaner for vinyl and other surfaces you’d steam clean.

Not only can this rubber floor cleaner be used for routine cleaning of your gym mats and tiles, but it can be used for all damp mopping, scrubbing, spray and wipe cleaning, or cleaning with a hand bucket and cloth.

There are many benefits specific to the E-Clean product, which include the following:
  1. Almost perfectly neutral pH level
  2. Cleaner can be used with an automatic scrubbing machine. When it is, it will not streak or foam.
  3. The cleaner will not attack, damage, or dull any floor finish, protection, or wax.
  4. The cleaner will easily and quickly lift and remove dirt and soil from all washable surfaces - not just floors!
  5. This product dries film and residue free!
  6. Although the product has the ability to revitalize any dulled, washable surface, it will not cause damage to it like harsh, acidic products can.
  7. The cleaner is non-toxic, phosphate free, biodegradable, added fragrance free, non-corrosive, non-hazardous, free of glycol ethers, alkalis free, and free of non-bio-based ingredients.
