Homeowners face various challenges in choosing their desired cleaning agents. The fact that there are hundreds of chemicals on the market complicates decision making. People often choose their cleaner based on cost, health and environmental impacts, brands, and effectiveness. However, using the wrong chemical or combination of chemicals can impede safety standards. With all of this in mind, it’s easy to imagine how tough choosing the right products to clean an aircraft can be.
The first step in choosing the right chemicals is to refer to the original operating manufacturer’s (OEM’s) maintenance manual. Here, you can find approved and proven methods for cleaning, along with a list of pre-approved chemicals for the airframe. In addition to pre-approved chemicals, the maintenance manual will also typically include a list of chemicals to avoid, such as ammonia-based window cleaners, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, chlorine bleach, and dish soaps.
It can be a bit of a hassle, but doing the research to find out what should and shouldn’t be used to clean your aircraft is a good idea. If you use the wrong cleaning agents, you run the risk of prematurely damaging your aircraft. But, if you use the right cleaning agents and cleaning methods, you can promote the longevity of your aircraft.
