One of the most advanced porcelain tile cleaning systems used by us involves the use of a high-pressure steam cleaning machine. This machine uses hot water and steam to penetrate deep into the pores of the tiles, removing dirt, grime, and stains. The steam also kills bacteria and sanitizes the surface without the need for harsh chemicals.
The system may also include specialised tools for cleaning grout lines, as well as a vacuum system to extract the dirty water and debris. Additionally, our systems may use ultraviolet light to kill any remaining bacteria or viruses.
This advanced cleaning system is effective at removing even the toughest stains and is environmentally friendly. It is also safe for use on most types of porcelain tiles, including those with textured or polished finishes.
Here are the general steps involved in a professional cleaning process for porcelain tiles:
Our technician will inspect the tiles to assess their condition, identify any problem areas, and determine the best cleaning method.
The tiles will be treated with a cleaning solution to loosen and lift dirt, grime, and stains. The solution may be applied directly to the tiles or to specific problem areas.
The cleaning solution is agitated using a rotary brush or other specialised tools to help break down and remove dirt and grime from the surface and grout lines.
The cleaning solution and dirt are extracted using a high-pressure cleaning machine or a wet-dry vacuum system, leaving the tiles clean and residue-free.
The tiles are thoroughly rinsed with clean water to remove any remaining cleaning solution and dirt.
The tiles are left to dry completely, either naturally or using specialised drying equipment.
A final inspection is conducted to ensure the tiles are clean and any problem areas have been addressed.
These steps may be adjusted or customized based on the specific needs of the tiles and the cleaning method being used.
There are several reasons why you should consider using a professional tile and grout cleaning company to clean the tiles and grout in your home or business:
The time it takes a professional company to clean tile and grout in an average size kitchen can vary depending on several factors, such as the degree of dirt and grime buildup, the type of tiles and grout, and the cleaning methods and equipment used. However, as a rough estimate, it can take anywhere from 1 to 6 hours for a professional company to clean the tile and grout in an average size kitchen.
It’s important to note that the cleaning process may take longer if there are any stubborn stains or scratches or if the grout is deeply discolored. In such cases, the professionals may need to apply additional treatments or use specialised equipment to achieve the desired results. It’s always best to consult with the cleaning company beforehand to get an accurate estimate of the time and cost involved in cleaning your kitchen tiles and grout.
Tile and grout cleaning costs are calculated based on factors such as the size of the area to be cleaned, the type of tile and grout, the level of dirt and stains, and the cleaning method used. In most cases, traders will more likely provide and fix quotes which will include parking cost labor, cleaning materials and products, disposable tools, and travel.
While it is possible to clean tile and grout surfaces yourself, a professional tile and grout cleaning company can provide a more thorough and effective cleaning. Here are a few reasons why:
Advanced equipment: Professional tile and grout cleaning companies use specialised equipment, such as high-pressure steam cleaners, that are not available to most homeowners. These tools can provide a deep clean that removes dirt and grime from deep within the pores of the grout.
Specialised cleaning solutions: Professional tile and grout cleaning companies use cleaning agents that are specifically designed to clean tile and grout surfaces. These agents are more effective than store-bought cleaners and can remove stubborn stains and discoloration.
Trained staff: Professional tile and grout cleaning companies employ trained technicians who have the knowledge and experience to clean a variety of tile and grout surfaces. They can identify the specific type of tile and grout in your home and use appropriate cleaning methods to avoid damaging the surfaces.
Time-saving: Cleaning tile and grout surfaces can be a time-consuming task. Hiring a professional cleaning company can save you time and effort, allowing you to focus on other tasks or activities.
Overall, while cleaning tile and grout surfaces yourself is possible, a professional tile and grout cleaning company can provide a more thorough and effective cleaning, saving you time and effort in the process.
