Why hire a San Diego tile and stone cleaning service?

Tile, stone, and grout cleaning take more effort than a simple pass of a mop or sponge over your surfaces with basic household cleaning products. After dirt and grime have covered your tile and filled your grout, removing the contaminants can be very difficult. This is because both ceramic and stone are porous.  Much like skin they contain tiny little holes that will become clogged, once clogged the grime will begin to harden in layers, leaving your tile and grout looking discolored and dull.

While you could spend hours attempting grout cleaning on your own with a toothbrush and your favorite cleaning solutions, or trying to restore the shine to your tile or stone using off the shelf tile cleaners, in many cases without the use of professional equipment, your tile and grout will remain discolored.

Man-Made and Natural Tile Cleaning

The Best Solution to Your Stone and Tile Cleaning Woes

Hiring a professional stone, tile, and grout cleaning service.
At Floor Cleaner Fred we offer our tile, stone, and grout cleaning services at affordable, competitive rates. We’re also equipped with the experience and equipment necessary to truly clean your floors.

Our process is simple:

  1. We sweep and or vacuum the tiled areas to remove dust and debris build-up.
  2. In one or two room-sized sections, we will pre-spray an eco-friendly heat-active enzyme, safe for all ceramic, porcelain, and natural stones, and let it dwell for five to ten minutes. The dwell time allows the enzyme to liquefy and detach ground in dirt, debris, and any other staining bodies that are embedded into the face of the tiles or grout.
  3. After the enzyme dwells, we use a Brush Pro to agitate the solution into the tile and grout helping remove traffic build-up and staining throughout the floor. Any areas that our machine can’t reach, like close to baseboards and underneath fixtures, will be agitated by hand using tile sponges and commercial grout brushes to ensure all areas are cleaned with the same attention to detail.
  4. Utilizing truck mount powered suction, 180 degree water, and up to 1,200 PSI of spray power, we use a tile and grout pressure washing machine to extract excess water from the >tile to ensure that the dirt and water are completely extracted .
  5. After we’ve completed the stone or tile cleaning service, we place floor fans in the finished areas to ensure a quick dry time and will follow up by sealing the face and grout of the tiles with sealant. Finally, we will give you advice and instructions for maintaining your tile and grout for the following years to come.

The problem with using a mop for tile, stone, and grout cleaning

The majority of people think that running a mop over their tile or stone floors will make them clean again, and while mopping will definitely help to remove dirt from the surface, it can also be counteractive to your tile and grout cleaning efforts. While you’re mopping, unless you’ve taken all of the necessary steps to remove excess dirt, removed your shoes, cleaned any dirt off of your feet, gotten a new mop head, and cleaned your mop bucket thoroughly, you’re going to spread dirt.

Additionally, when you’re mopping, unless you take the time to clean each tile by itself, not letting water get into the grout, you’re going to move water and dirt into your grout, leaving it discolored and dull. This happens because the pores in the grout will capture the wet dirt mixture from the dirt on the surface of the tile and the wet mopping solution.

In order to successfully use a mop for stone, tile, and grout cleaning you’ll need to remove the dirt from the surface of the tiles individually, not allowing water and dirt to spill into the grout, using suction along with a cleaning solution to help you to contain the wet mixture of dirt and grime. Once you’ve successfully cleaned each tile’s surface you can mop, but you’ll need to take extra care to ensure that your mop head, mopping solution, and all other items that make contact with the tile and the grout are clean the entire time, otherwise you’ll potentially do more harm than good.
