Tile and Grout Cleaning

Prevent Grout Stains

Sanitize Floors

Controlled Extraction

Ceramic, porcelain, and natural stone tiles have gained tremendous popularity in interior design, and like carpet, they too periodically need professional attention to maintain their original appearance. Traditional scrubbing and mopping are routine maintenance and will only remove surface dirt, not the dirt layered throughout the grout. If the floor in your home or business has started to look dingy and dull, Paneless can clean and seal the grout for maximum resistance to dirt and staining.

TILE AND GROUT CLEANING PROCESS

Paneless’ cleaning process begins with applying an alkaline grout treatment. This treatment penetrates deep through the grout to reach the dirt that surface cleaning is not capable of reaching. After the grout treatment has had dwell time, our certified technician will use a machine to scrub the floors with counter rotating brushes. At that point, the truck mount with RO technology uses a high pressure of 900psi and heated reverse osmosis water at 230˚ to cleanse and sterilize. To conclude, powerful suction is used to extract all the grout treatment and dirt for maximum removal.

Occasionally there are specified areas usually around commodes, kitchens, or heavy foot traffic areas that will have stained grout lines. At an additional cost, our technician can acid treat to etch out the staining. The success rate is highly dependent on what the stain is, how long it has been there, and if it has been painted over.

The resulting appearance will be dependent on the type of floor we are working on. Ceramic and porcelain will have the same sheen as when installed assuming a topical coating had not been applied by someone else. Only grout lines will be sealed. Natural stone floors will also have the same appearance as originally installed when cleaned only and sealed. Sealers do not change the look of the stone or make it shiny. However, if a floor is honed and polished it can change the appearance to be dull, semi-gloss, or high-shine based on the customer’s preference.

SEALING BENEFITS

We always recommend sealing freshly cleaned grout. However, if the floor consists of a natural stone surrounded by grout, we would seal the stone and grout at the same time. As best practice, we do not apply a sealer or topical coating on regular porcelain or ceramic tile because it will eventually flake off sporadically. Sealing is beneficial because it prevents dirt from penetrating thus keeping spills from soaking in and staining. The sealer we recommend is breathable, but waterproof, which allows moisture that comes up through the foundation to evaporate. This formula creates a long- lasting and durable layer of protection that makes maintaining your floors Paneless.

RO technology is reverse osmosis water that is filtered through a five-stage process. This process removes all total dissolved solids and chlorine that cause water to spot or dry hard because of minerals. Since the water is pure, it acts as a cleaning agent itself. Water loves minerals so when we remove those minerals, it wants them back. We refer to it as thirsty water. So ask yourself, what is in soil? Minerals. Now you have water that wants minerals. So we use this RO water to adsorb the soil on a window or floor surfaces. This RO water is incorporated into the majority of the services we provide.
