First we apply a mild alkaline solution to a section of the floor and allow it to penetrate for up to 15 minutes. This loosens the accumulated soil, grease, contaminates and topical residue. We do not use harsh acids as these damage tile and grout. The alkaline solution does not produce any harmful fumes and ordinary ventilation removes the mild scent within minutes of completion of the job.
Then special serrated bristles agitate the grout lines as well as the tile surface. Edge cleaning is also done at this time.
The tile and grout are rinsed using heated high pressure water. We not only clean the tile and grout but we also sanitize both. The system generates water pressure of 1.000 to 1.200 P.S. while the water temperature of approximately 240 degrees softens and extracts years of soil and contaminates. The floor tool connects to a powerful vacuum hose which sucks the cleaning disk to the floor and confines the water spray inside the disk. 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.
Removes all remaining water on floor. High powered air movers are put into place to dry tile and grout lines. Then we inspect for any staining and spot clean any surfaces stains.
1-2 coats are applied, depending upon the porosity of the grout lines. This creates a barrier against future staining, and will not change the color of your grout lines. Excessive sealer is buffed off tile and grout after appropriate drying time.
