Apollo Beach Tile Floor Cleaning

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

While cleaning tile floors in Apollo Beach, Florida, I encountered dirty, discolored and missing grout.

In order for us to clean the tile floors and restore the grout we followed these important cleaning steps.

  • Dry vacuumed the entire floor
  • Pretreatment of heavy duty alkaline tile cleaner
  • Agitated the tile and grout with an aggressive brush
  • Rinsed and extracted the floor with hot pressurized steam cleaning solution
  • Treated the grout with acidic grout cleaning solution
  • Agitated grout lines
  • Rinsed and extracted tile and grout with PH balancing solution
  • Detailed edges and corners
  • Speed dried floor

Our final step was to do a post inspection with the client and the end result was a clean and shiny floor.

Grout cleaning Tampa: Removing sealer haze

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Sealer haze: Natural stone and grout surfaces can only hold a certain amount of sealer.

If excess sealer is left on the surface and it dries it could cause a smooth, silky white haze.

Sealer haze on the surface of tile and stone surfaces will wear off during normal foot traffic. Sealer haze on grout lines can be cleaned using a towel soaked with fresh sealer. This will dissolve the excess and can be wiped away.

In extreme conditions using a high ph tile and grout cleaner and a rotary scrubber can speed up the process of removal.

Tile Identification

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

When it come to cleaning tile floors, It is important to understand what type of floor you are cleaning.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic is a broad category that can include all tile that is made from clay and other non-metallic minerals.In general use, ceramic tile is used to describe tiles that don’t fall into one of the other groups. Most ceramic tile goes through a process called “firing” at high temperatures.

A key advantage of ceramic tile is resistant to alkaline, acids and solvent used in cleaning. Ceramic’s abrasion resistance keeps it from being scratched by gritty soil under foot if the grade of the tile matches the situation in which its being used. Ceramic tile flooring comes in a wide variety of styles, Colors and patterns.

Porcelain

Porcelain is high density ceramic tile made form special clays fired at high temperatures making it highly resistant to abrasion. One qualification to be called porcelain is that the tile must absorb less than .5% of its weight in water.

Choosing either type of  tile floors will give you a very durable floor which can be easily cleaned and maintained.

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.
