Tile & Grout Cleaning

Kelley’s Tile & Grout Cleaning and Restoration

Much like carpet and upholstery, tile and grout can become soiled and stained by many of the same contaminants such as dirt, oil, tar, grease, liquids, food, and make-up. There are four very important factors that must be present to remove these contaminants.

They are: cleaning agents, heat, agitation, and time.

 

As in carpet cleaning, these four factors work together to produce spectacular results. Our cleaning agents are not only safe for man-made and natural stone tiles, but have the necessary detergents to facilitate the emulsification necessary for complete soil removal. We allow the cleaning agent to dwell for the desired time so that emulsification and breakdown of the soil and oils will be complete and result in easy removal. Our truck mounted system allows us to heat our water to the desired temperature to increase the cleaning agent activity, resulting in the breakdown of soils and oils that have been ground into the tile and grout by way of foot traffic. The tile and grout are then agitated to remove the soil and oils from the surface of the tile as well as the porous areas. Finally, taking the time necessary to complete these steps is very important in order to achieve the desired results.
