Tile and Grout Cleaning

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Cleaning tile and grout can be a back breaking job and very time consuming. National Cleaning Specialists recommends a very simple but effective process to clean your floors. Our unique process that we developed and use is described in this article below.

The first step in cleaning a tile floor is to remove the sand and grit. This is best done using a vacuum with Hepa Filtration. Once the grit and sand is removed you then can pre treat the areas with an alkaline pre-spray. This will help break down and suspend the soils for rinsing.

Using an agitation device to scrub the grout lines and tile will achieve better results. Always make sure that you use the hottest water possible when cleaning.

The fourth step is to rinse and extract the soil and cleaning solution from the surface. Using a tool with a vacuum and high pressure to clean the surface will do the best job. You may also use a mop with clean water as well but the results will take longer. Make sure the water is changed regularly.

The final step is to dry the floor. I recommend using a high speed blower to help dry the areas before use.

National Cleaning Specialists cleans Tile Floors for only $29.95 per area up to 100 Sq. Ft.
