Do your Tile floors need attention? Does your grout no longer resemble the color you worked so hard to pick out? Don’t waste the weekend on your hands and knees with a toothbrush and bucket of hot soapy water; you will likely end up with sore knees and an aching back with results you’re not happy with. Let us show you what our contained steam cleaning system can do. It is simply incredible! It gives us the benefit of a pressure washer coupled with our powerful cleaning machine – without the mess! We offer tile and grout cleaning in Ann Arbor and the surrounding area.
Our Tile Cleaning Process
Inspection: The first thing we do, is we look to make sure that the tile and grout has great structural integrity. We want our technicians and you to be aware of any pre-existing damage.
Sweeping: At times we may need to give the tile surface a good sweeping before we begin to remove any larger debris from the tile and grout floor.
Pre Spray: We use a special tile cleaning solution that not only breaks up the soils on the tile surface but that break down the dirt and oil in the grout.
Scrubbing: We have a few tools we can use to scrub the tile face and especially to get into the grout lines to work our cleaning solution to really break up that soil. This helps greatly to suspend the soil in the cleaning solution so that we can remove them.
Rinsing: Using our self contained tile cleaning tool and the hot water for our cleaning machine, we rinse the floor between 900-1200 PSI depending on the floor. Our self contained tile cleaning tool not only rinses the floor but also extracts the dirty water up immediately leaving no mess – only a clean and sanitized floor.
Drying: At times, we’ll use special fans to dry the floor quickly so that it can be used immediately after cleaning.
Sealing: This is an optional service but we can seal the grout lines and depending on the type of tile, the tile itself as well. Our sealing product penetrates into the grout lines and forms a protective barrier that doesn’t allow liquids, dirt, grease to be absorbed into the grout lines. It will help keep your tile floors looking great in between professional cleanings.
We Clean More Than Tile Floors
Tile countertops in the kitchen can usually take a beating. They absorb grease from cooking and food is often prepped on them which makes them a great place for bacteria to settle. Our self contained cleaning system cuts right through grease and food spills and removes them from the tile face and the grout lines. Since grout is porous by nature it absorbs any liquids that are spilled onto it. We highly recommend you have your kitchen countertops cleaned regularly. We can also seal the grout lines with an impregnating sealer - if your countertops are made of natural stone we can also seal the tile itself as well. The sealer creates a barrier where liquids will bead up and sit on top of the tile or grout lines making it easier to clean up any messes.
Showers are another place for bacteria, mildew, and mold to hide within the grout lines. We can clean and seal your shower as well. It is common for showers to have built up soap scum and calcium deposits. These can be stubborn to remove from the tiles but our cleaning products and system can take care of that for you.
