A Very Common Problem Of Tile & Grout
Allow us to describe a very common situation. You have lived in your home for a while and occasionally mop your tile and grout floor to keep it clean and tidy. You're noticing that your normal mopping method just isn't cutting it and so you add a little more clean solution and you've once again reclaimed the clean status of your tile and grout floor. A few weeks goes by and you notice your tile and grout floor looks dirty again and you begin mopping it but your even stronger cleaning solution isn't working so you let out a heavy sigh and decide to use the heavy duty approach. There you are with a bucket of your trusty cleaning solution and brush and after an hour or so of light scrubbing you've once again reclaimed the clean status of your tile and grout floor. Finally, another couple of weeks go by and the floor is once again dirty looking and you shuffle your feet to gather your cleaning supplies. This time you really had to scrub the floor and it took twice as long, your back and your knees are sore and you just can't fathom having to do that again.
Our Tile & Grout Cleaning Process
Our tile and grout cleaning system features a self contained tile and grout cleaning tool, that gives us the benefits of a pressure washer without the mess. Our tile and grout cleaning tool power washes the floor to extract soil and grease from the pores of the tile and grout or other hard surface floors. The system generates water pressure that we can adjust from 400 - 1500 PSI depending on the needs of your tile floor. Our powerful system generates water temperature of approximately 210-230 degrees to loosen and extract years of soil and contaminants. Our tile & grout floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose, which adheres the tile and grout cleaning tool to the floor, and confines the water spray inside the disk. There is virtually no over spray to worry about - like we said no mess. The vacuum hose draws away the water, along with the dirt, to a containment tank on our truck. We can restore you tile and grout to approximately 80-90% of its original luster. Some stains, (red wines, koolaid, dyes ect) will not entirely come out if they have dyed the grout lines. If your tile and grout was sealed during installation there is a much greater chance that these issues may not have effected the tile and grout floor. The combination of heat, water pressure, and detergent will remove most staining.
It is a wise choice to have your tile and grout sealed after it has been cleaned. If you have ceramic tile we will only be sealing the grout lines. The penetrating sealer is absorbed by the grout line and creates a barrier that helps liquids, oils, and other soils to stay on the surface to be easily cleaned away. If you have a natural stone such as slate, limestone, and travertine we seal the actual tile face itself as well as any grout lines. Natural stones are extremely absorbent and absolutely need a layer of protection to keep them looking as beautiful as the day they were installed.
