Our Tile Cleaning Process
First, our experienced technicians will inspect your tile and grout, noting any heavily-soiled or high-traffic areas. They will explain in detail how our agitation with high-pressure extraction cleaning process works, and of course, they will answer any questions you might have. Once our specialists have your approval to move ahead, they’ll use our state-of-the-art cleaning equipment, cleaning agents and tools to remove the dirt and discoloration that has accumulated on your floors.
Our high-pressure tile cleaning process suctions the dirt from your floor, reaching areas that your mop simply can’t access, including the dirt and grime that hides deep within the pores of your grout lines. After cleaning, we will offer to seal the grout lines at a minimal cost to protect your investment of your hard surface flooring. The sealant acts as a barrier to spills and stains, and it also helps to ensure the success of future cleanings!
It typically takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to clean the tile and grout in an average-size room of up to 300 square feet. This may vary based on several factors, such as the size of the tile, the amount of soil in the grout lines, and the way the room is configured. Plan on another two to three hours if you choose to add sealant.
Grout is porous material, which means it is more difficult to clean, as it will continually collect grime over time. Even regular mopping and scrubbing are not enough to prevent buildup because dirt works itself deep into the grout.
Once the sealant has been applied, you need to wait 30 minutes before walking on the floor. This allows for adequate time for the sealant to dry. Another 24 hours is required for the sealant to cure, so it’s critical that no liquid come in contact with the sealant during that time
