Tile & Grout Cleaning
Our process begins with a pre-spray of a highly consentrated Tile and Grout cleaner which loosens dirt and oil. Our Hard Surface cleaning equipment produces 185 degrees of boiling water at a volume rate of 2 1/2 gallons per minute, while simultanioulsy extracting and sanitizing the surface. On the underside of the tool are two high-pressure jets mounted at opposing sides of the tool on a rotating bar. Because the jets are spinning at such a high rate, they make multiple passes across the same area creating a “brushing” action. Because the entire process is contained within one tool and occurs simultaneously, very little water, if at all, is left behind on the floor to create hazards. No water is sprayed onto walls, windows, food products, etc. There are no powered brushes used in our process so the possibility of chipped Tile and Grout is virtually eliminated. The only part of the machine head that actually makes contact with the floor is a soft gasket which allows the tool to effortlessly glide across the face of the tile.
Tile & Grout Sealing
Tile Tech uses a flouro-polymer reimpregnate sealer to guard against stains from soap, hard water, oils, grease, and soils. Natural Stone surfaces and Grout can be sealed because they are porous. However, Ceramic and Porcelain cannot be sealed because they are not porous.
Carpets are cleaned using a steam injection and extraction process. A light alkaline solution is pre-sprayed to loosen dirt and oils and then rinsed and “Extracted” from the fabric using a high-volume commercial vacuum.
Once this process is complete, an acid wash is sometimes required (except on natural stone) to
remove hard water stains, soap scum, and grout haze. This acid wash is very similar to the
process described above except a very light phosphoric acid is used as a pre-soak instead of the
alkaline detergent. The acid is then rinsed in the same manner using the “Turbo-Hybrid”
