How to: Reduce Cleaning Time

How to: Reduce Cleaning Time

Q. Are there other cleaning variables, besides increasing cleaning time, which would allow for a more thorough cleaning process?

A. At Alconox, Inc we recognize that “manual cleaning may take minutes, and spray cleaning seconds: soaking may take hours, possibly overnight, to achieve comparable cleanliness.”


Cleaning time can be accelerated by:

  • increasing temperature,
  • increasing agitation and by
  • the use of a more aggressive detergent.


Of course if none of these variables can be changed, perhaps because the substrate is too delicate or the proper equipment unavailable, then be prepared for longer cleaning times.
