Tile and grout cleaning process

Step 1: We carry out a pre-inspection of the tiles in order to determine what type of tiles they are and what is the best cleaning solution for them.

Step 2: In preparation for the tile cleaning we micro-fibre mop the floor.

Step 3: The cleaning solution is applied to the tiles. This solutions is applied hot and once applied, immediately begins breaking down the soiling and grime.

Step 4: All the tiles and grout lines are scrubbed and agitated.

Step 5: With our powerful truck mounted machine, we perform the high pressure steam extraction.

Step 6: We perform a final dry with high velocity air movers and fibre mops

Ceramic tiles are a popular choice of tile due to their wide array of colours, designs and textures and their reasonably low cost. Ceramic tiles are hard wearing and low in porousity and generally cannot be sealed. We often seal the grout lines after cleaning this will keep the surface cleaner and make future cleaning much easier.

Old sealer coats often need to be stripped and removed during the cleaning process, then re -applied after cleaning – commonly known as stripping & sealing.

Limestone tiles are very porous , extremely senstive to acids and prone to scratching and staining. Most commonly very light in colour limestone tiles are used for both floor and wall tiles. Limestone tiles need to be maintained with a high quality penetrating sealer rather than a top coat sealer.

HOW DOES OUR TILE CLEANING SYSTEM WORK  ?

We use the very latest in tile cleaning technology to properly perform the job at hand and to acheive the very best tile cleaning results for our customers.  The system we use is widely known as “clean and capture”  this is where we utilise our powerful truckmounted machinery to generate high water pressure and high water temperatures to pressure clean the tile surface and at the same time the vacuum motors of our machinery  recover  the dirty water into a holding tank in the rear of our van. This system allows us the clean your tiles without any splashing of dirt or water and your tiles are left virtually dry once we have finished the tile cleaning process.

TILE SEALING 

All porous tiles need to be maintained with a high quality sealing agent, professional sealing of your tiles will help protect the tiled surface from staining , general wear and tear and it will add years of life to your floor .  For acid sensitive stone tiles sealing is an absolute must , this will create a protective barrier between the surface and the stone tile giving you time to wipe up any acidic spills such as fruit juice, vinegar, wine, etc. before it damages the tile. Depending on the type of tile you have we can apply either a penetrating sealer or a top coat sealer to your tiles , at Master Class we can best advise you on the most  appropriate sealer for your particular tiles.

GROUT SEALING 

In some cases certain types of tiles cannot be sealed yet you may still want the benefits of the ease of cleaning that comes with the sealing of tiles , ceramic tiles are a good example of this. In such cases we recommend sealing the grout lines with a high quality penetrating sealer, this will keep the grout clean much longer and it will also make cleaning of the entire tiled flooring much easier.

TILE  STRIPPING

If your tiles have an existing sealer coat on them then generally this will need to be removed during the cleaning process in order to properly clean then re-seal your tiles , this process is widely known as stripping & sealing. We perform this stripping process using specialised stripping solutions in conjunction with rotary machine scrubbing this process   breaks  down and seperates  the old sealer from the tiled surface. Once this process is completed we then steam clean the surface at high water pressure removing the old sealer and any dirt and grime with it. We then neutralise the tiles with our specialised solution to remove any chemical residue , the floor is now ready for sealing.

BATHROOM  TILE CLEANING:

Bathroom tile cleaning can present different challanges for the professional tile cleaner these being soap scum on floor and wall tiles , calcium deposit build-up and water staining on tiles. At Master Class Cleaning Services we have specialised tooling for the cleaning of wall tiles and of tiles in small tight areas. We also use a specialised chlorine based cleaning solution for the cleaning of shower and bathroom wall tiles this not only cuts through soap scum and fatty build-up on wall tiles it also has the added benefit of completely sanitising and dis-infecting the tiles.
