Rust Removal Cleaning - Friday, May 30, 2014

Rust is a problem that can develop on any iron-based metal surface, which is exposed to the elements & weather, around water or anywhere that is in a high-humidity environment. If the object is in close proximity to the sea or other salt-water source, rusting will be greatly accelerated and must be dealt with sooner rather than later. This is because the salt allows the metal to oxidise at a much quicker rate when compared to fresh water.

As well as producing an unsightly appearance on the surface of the metal, if the rust is allowed to develop further it can also lead to parts and equipment failing in the future.

One way of removing a build up of rust from a surface is to scrub away at it with an abrasive pad. However, this can damage the metal underneath and allow the rust to develop further next time around. So, the best option is to use a specialist rust removal cleaning product.

APT have a number of cleaning products that have been designed exclusively for rust removal cleaning. Find out more on their website –

Concentrated Cleaning Products - Wednesday, May 14, 2014

As well as having the right equipment for the task at hand, you also need to make sure that you are using concentrated cleaning products too. If you don't use concentrated chemicals, it’s likely you’ll face the following problems:

Using diluted chemicals will mean that a job that could be done in 5 minutes would take much longer than necessary.

Some surfaces, such as aluminium or marble, will require a specialist cleaning product which has been designed with them in mind. If you choose to use the wrong chemical you will therefore run the risk of damaging the surface!

If you use diluted chemicals, then you’ll need more of them. You’ll therefore be ordering more often, and more bulky products, which will increase the delivery costs.

APT Cleaning Supplies supply a huge range of highly concentrated cleaning products which will ensure your costs will be as low as possible – find out more at
