Cleaning agents containing hydrochloric acids should not be used - will destroy tiles and stainless steel fixtures.

 

Effective, rational and economic cleaning and disinfection are possible only if appropriate easy-to-clean materials are specified for the floor, wall, seating and lying surfaces during the planning and implementing phases.  Surfaces such as exposed aggregate, concrete and rubber surfaces trap dirt and become difficult to maintain hygiene.  Tiled surfaces containing HT coating, make cleaning easier and prevent bacteria, fungi and viruses growing.

For thorough cleaning operations, adequate time must be made available outside of the opening hours of the facility.

In order to avoid destruction of surfaces and the underlying materials, it is necessary to have a good knowledge of:

- the nature of the contamination to be removed,

- the materials to be cleaneded, and

- the chemical characteristics of the cleaning agents.

  

Cleaning Pool Concourse

Only those cleaning chemicals that have been classified as "RK Tile Safe" should be used on ceramic floors.  

The pH-value of the cleaning agents is of special significance.  It indicates whether a gtiven product is alkaline, neutral or acidic.  The pH-scale ranges between 0 and 14 (7=neutral, less than 7=acidic, greater than 7=alkaline).

For the cleaning and care of ceramic coverings in wet areas of swimming pools, the use of film-forming substances, waxes, polymers must be avoided.  Such surface treatments, in conjunction with extreme dampness can lead to a reduction in slip-resistance.  In addition the use of alkaline cleaners need to be thoroughly rinsed with hot water.  If alkaline is not rinsed properly, the sitting detergent will slippery underfoot and attract dirt.
