First, we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of the floor and allow it to soak. In severe cases of soiling, we will use a rotary floor machine to agitate the clearing agents in. This pre-treatment loosens accumulated soil, grease, and contaminants, and prepares the surface for our cleaning process. If necessary we will use a safe gentle acid to attempt to remove any staining that did not come out with the alkaline cleaning agent.
Turbo Pressure Washing and Hand Scrubbing
We use a truck-mounted washing system designed specifically for tile & grout and stone surfaces. Our truck-mounted cleaning technology washes the hard surfaces to extract soil/mold and grease from the pores of the tile and grout or other hard surfaces. The system generates high water pressure and a temperature of approximately 265 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. There is virtually no splash over to worry about. The vacuum hose draws away from the water, along with the dirt, to a containment tank on our truck, and we dispose of the wastes. You will find that our process restores the tile & grout to 85 to 95 percent of its original appearance. We also clean delicates and specialized tile/stone by hand.
After we clean and allow things to dry, we can seal both the tile AND the grout with our impregnating sealer. The tile & grout absorbs the sealer into its pores, creating a barrier against future staining. The sealer does not change the appearance by adding a shine or luster. Instead, it preserves the natural beauty of the surface.
