    The cleaning method selected for cold cleaning depends entirely upon the nature and requirements of the cleaning job. There are six factors which usually dictate the method to be used: 1. Degree of cleanliness desired. 2. Size and shape of the article to be cleaned. 3. Composition and materials of construction. 4. Nature of soil. 5. Hazards. 6. Overall cost. Consideration of these factors, along with an understanding of the cold cleaning methods outlined below, should make it relatively simple to select the most appropriate process.
