First, we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of
the floor and allow it to soak for approximately 15 minutes.
In severe case 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. The alkaline solution
does not produce any harmful fumes, and ordinary ventilation
removes the mild scent within minutes of completion of the
job. If necessary we will use a safe gentle acid to attempt
to remove any staining that did not come out with the alkaline
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 1,000 to 1,200 P.S.I. and water temperature of approximately
240 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants.
The floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose, which
sucks 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 dirt, to a containment 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 dye the grout, but the combination of heat, water pressure,
and suction removes most stains.
After we clean the floor and allow it to dry, we seal the
floor with our impregnating sealer. The tile & grout
floor 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.
We will provide instructions for your in-house or commercial
cleaning people in how to take proper care of the floors,
and show them what kinds of cleaners will do the best job
without breaking down the impregnating sealer.
In addition, we will contact you in a pre-arranged cycle
and offer our services to do touch-up cleaning and re-sealing
as needed. A regular maintenance program will keep your
floors in top condition and appearance.
In the event that your grout has become permanently stained
or discolored we can in many cases (not shower stalls) recolor
your grout with a pigmented penetrative seal. We have over
40 colors to choose from.
