Our Tile, Grout, and Stone Cleaning & Sealing Methods:
For the most part the cleaning method is the same whether a man made tile or natural stone besides the cleaners that would be used.
- Move all furniture in the areas where the tile will be cleaned, and tape off and cover any appliances or furniture that is needed.
- Apply our powerful cleaning solutions and power scrub the tile to break up the dirt and soils.
- Clean and disinfect your tile and stone using a high pressure hot water extraction.
- After drying your tile and stone with fans, we then can apply a sealant.
On man made tile, we apply the seal to the grout lines since that is the porous area. On a natural stone, in most cases, the entire stone and grout lines are sealed because the surface and grout line are porous on a natural stone. Then we place fans on the tile and stone to dry the sealant quickly.
Your tile can be walked on right away once we leave. You are left with beautifully cleaned tile that will be much easier for you to maintain.
Ceramic & Porcelain Tile Cleaning
Depending on the tile being cleaned such as a a ceramic or porcelain tile that is a man made tile, there are specific ways they should be approached when cleaning.
For this reason we always do a test first to see if there has ever been any applications applied to the surface or color sealants applied to your grout and to see if it is indeed a man made tile or a natural stone since many look alike.
Natural Stone Cleaning
Natural Stone and tile just as a man made tile, must also approached and evaluated before cleaning.
Natural stones can be damaged if not cleaned properly or if too harsh of a solution in used on it in the cleaning process. Only certain cleaners must be used so not to etch the surface of the tile or any glossed surfaces or honed and polished stones.
We first examine and test the stone to find out what kind it is and then we test to see if there has been any type of top coats or gloss finishes applied as to not damage them.
