Tile can be a very labor intensive job. Most people spend hours on their hands and knees scrubbing the tile and grout lines in order to get them clean. Unfortunately we have seen this process actually do more damage than good to their tile and grout. One of the most common mistakes that are made is by using the wrong cleaning product.
One popular internet method is cleaning the tile with vinegar and baking soda. This combination is very bad for the grout and even worse for natural stones like travertine and slate. We start by using a pre-spray that is specifically designed for cleaning tile and grout. We allow this solution to dwell on the tile for a certain amount of time which allows the product to break down the dirt, soil and greases on the floor.
At Power Plus all of our crews are highly trained to know what kind of stone you have, as well as the correct cleaning procedure and products should, and should not be used to clean it. After the cleaning product as had sufficient dwell time we then use a specially designed tool to hand scrub each grout line. This scrubbing motion helps tremendously to break down and emulsify the dirt, soil and grease in both the tile and grout.
We use a special tile cleaning tool that allows us to use all the suction and heat of our powerful truck mount machines. This tool is like a bowl that you turn upside down. Inside this bowl are powerful jets that spin and spray out super heated water at over 1000 psi. This combination of heat and pressure blasts away any dirt, grease, oil, food or other soils in the tile and grout, at the same time sucks it all away into the waste tank of the van.
We apply a grout sealer to help prevent future staining. We can also seal your natural stone to give it a stunning look and bring back the beautiful look when it was new. This process has done miracles for turning the filthiest tile and grout into gorgeous looking floors again. If you want to save yourself the time, hassle and back breaking work of cleaning your tile by yourself, then this process is for you. You will be amazed at the results and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
