Step process on how we professionally steam clean tile and grout.
Pre-Treatment First, we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of the floor and allow it to soak for approximately 15 minutes. We do not use harsh acids as these damage tiles and grout. This pre-treatment loosens accumulated soil, grease, and contaminants, and prepares the surface for our cleaning process. The alkaline solution does not produce any harmful fumes, and ordinary ventilation removes the mild scent within minutes of completion of the job.
Power scrubbing is then used with a 175 rpm floor machine to remove any topical coatings or finishes from the tile itself. The machine is fixed with rotary nylon brushes that work the tile and agitate grout lines. Magic erasers are used along baseboard and in corners, scrapers may be needed to remove gum or sticky residue
Turbo Pressure Washing We use a pressure washing system designed specifically for tile & grout, acrylic, and epoxy surfaces. Our truck mounted cleaning process 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 of 800 to 1,200 P.S.I. and water temperature of approximately 210 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. The floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose, which away the cleaning disk to the floor and confines the water spray inside the 16-inch disk.
There is virtually no splash over to worry about. The vacuum hose draws away the water, along with the soil to a tank on our truck and we dispose of the wastes in accordance with EPA regulations. You will find that our process restores the tile & grout to 85 to 90 percent of its original appearance. Some stains, (red wine, mustard, dyes, etc.) will not come out because they dyed the grout, but the combination of heat, water pressure, and suction removes most stains.
Remove excess water, high powered air movers are placed on the floor to remove any excess water and speed up the drying of the grout. At this point an inspection is performed to include any spot cleaning of stubborn stains or spots.
Sealing After we clean the floor and allow it to dry, we seal the floor with our impregnating sealer. The grout absorbs the sealer into its pores, creating a barrier against future staining. The sealer does not change the appearance of the floors by adding a shine or luster. Instead, it preserves the natural beauty of the surface. The excess sealer is wiped off or dry buffed off the tile, impregnating sealer will leave any residue or luster to the surface of the tile.
