pH-neutral cleaners are mild cleaners and are used when the surface you are cleaning is relatively clean. If it is very concentrated, it can be diluted with water.
When the surface you are cleaning has heavy dirt and stains, acidic cleaners can help remove those stains. These can come ready to use or in concentrate.
When grease or oil are the culprits, alkaline cleaners can de-grease and neutralize surfaces in no time.
Bacterial cleaners use active enzymes to clean stains by actively breaking them down.
These cleaners are used for special kinds of dirt and are typically a mixture of the cleaners mentioned above. These cleaners require experience and training.
