First, we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of the floor, agitate it and allow it to soak for
approximately 15 minutes. We do not use harsh acids as these can 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.
Turbo Pressure Washing
We use a pressure washing system designed specifically for tile & grout, acrylic, stone 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 300 to 1,400 P.S.I. and
water temperature of approximately 220 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. The
Turbo floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose, which sucks the cleaning head to the floor, and
confines the water spray inside the head. 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. 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 will remove most stains.
After we clean the floor and allow it to dry, if asked, we seal the floor with our impregnating sealer. The tile &
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. We can also do grout re-coloring.
We will provide instructions on how to take proper care of your floors, and show you 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.
