Our Tile Cleaning process
First we do a quick inspection. We find any stains or marks to ensure they’re removed. Depending on if your tile is stone or ceramic, we use a specific cleaning solutions for your type of tile and grout. Our special high-pressure equipment sprays hot water onto your tile and grout to loosen dirt and embedded debris. After that, we use a vacuum to suck the water and debris up and to make sure there is no remaining moisture on or under the floor.
After we’re done cleaning, (upon request) we apply a grout sealing agent to give your grout more resistance to stains and moisture. Got a question about how we clean our customer’s tile? Call or send us a message!
Types of Tiles & Floors
Most tiles fall into two broad classifications: ceramic and stone. There are two groups within the ceramic classification. Tiles belonging to that group are divided into two sub-groups: porcelain and non-porcelain. Porcelain tiles are less absorbent, so they are better in bathrooms and kitchens.
Natural stone tiles are made from different combinations of geological materials, and the way they react to different conditions and chemical reactions within the earth. Slate, marble, limestone, and granite are the most common natural stone sources for tile. Marble comes from limestone, and travertine is a type of marble.
There are many types of grout, and each type of grout serves a different purpose. Grout is a necessary part of any tile installation. Grout comes in two forms: cement based or epoxy. Cement based grouts are made with cement and water. It can also have added sand. Cement based grouts are more water absorbent. Epoxy grout consists of epoxy resins and a hardener. It is very easy to clean, non-absorbent, and stain and mildew resistant.
Vinyl is a close cousin of laminate. It is competitively priced, equally easy for do-it-yourselfers to install, and has a similar look. Yes we can professionally clean your vinyl flooring!
