Tile & Grout Cleaning
Cleaning tile floors by hand is hard work and more-than-often frustrating. A mop-and-bucket system leaves water looking gross and always a bit of residue on the tiles, never mind in the grout between tiles.
Because grout is porous, it expands and contracts with temperature and keep your tiles from cracking, but those same pores also collect dirt, spills, and bacteria. Most grout in high-traffic areas appears shades darker than the original color because of the dirt and bacteria living in between the tiles.
To wash tiles, most people use a mop-and-bucket technique—where water and soap are pushed into the corners, spread across the floor, then soaked into a bucket, then that same soapy-dirty-water-mix is pushed onto the floor again.
Instead, we use no-touch cleaning systems that use pressurized water and cleaning agent to pull dirt off of tiles, then vacuum off that soapy-dirty-water-mix into a second chamber, so the original dirt doesn’t come into contact with your floor again.
Regularly scheduled maintenance is the key to preserving the quality appearance of the flooring. We offer several methods depending on your material and current condition. (We’d love to explain more over the phone or in person as part of your quote.)
To combat these common issues we have several options. Use of a 3m Hygiene Bucket filters the water and bacteria so there’s no cross-contamination between the water. Microfiber mops made for hospital settings are also used to make sure your cleaning is both sanitary and cost-effective.
