Hiring a Tile and Grout Cleaning Company in Gold Coast
The most important choice you make when hiring a tile and grout cleaning company is to know that they are trained and have a sound understanding of the different types of tiles from ceramic, porcelain, terracotta, stone, polished porcelain.
Each of these tiles have different characteristics, how to clean them will depending on what sort of tile is to be cleaned and the location of the tile, whether they are indoor or outdoor tiles will depend on the cleaning solutions used.
Choosing the Right Cleaning Solutions
Different tiles react differently to the cleaning solutions. This is why it is important to hire a tile and grout cleaning company that can identify the type of tile to be cleaned.
Once the tile has been identified and the correct cleaning solution chosen, the tiles have to be pre vacuumed this will lift any loose dirt and grit that could potentially scratch the tile during the cleaning process.
After the vacuum then the cleaning solution is applied to the tile and grout, it is important to apply the cleaning solution liberally, this will ensure that parts of the areas to be cleaned don’t dry out before the steam cleaning process. The solution is left to dwell for around 20 minutes, this can depend again on the type of tile some tiles can have a longer dwell time. A longer dwell time is especially beneficial if the tiles and grout lines are very dirty or haven’t been cleaned by a professional tile cleaning Brisbane Company before.
Then a rotary scrubber is used to agitate the dirt within the tiles and grout, this will make for a better finish of the tiles, the brush used on the rotary scrubbing machine will get down into the grout lines and bring the natural colour of the grout back.
After the rotary scrubber has gone over the area it is time for the steam cleaning process, this will extract all of the cleaning solution used along with the dirt and grime from years of foot traffic. When the steam cleaning process is finished the tiles are left dry, this is important if the tiles being cleaned are polished porcelain or terracotta as water marks can be left if not dried sufficiently enough.
The tiles are cleaned with high temperature and high pressure, the temperature from the machine will get up to 160 degrees and the pressure to blast the dirt and grime away is 1200 psi, this gives the best results possible and kills all bacteria that may be present, extracting all of that dirt and bacteria to a holding tank within the van.
