Have you ever used a power pressure washer to clean your tile? Did you find your tile was too dirty for a power pressure washer? If the answer to either question is yes, it’s time to call in the professionals! They can remove all the different types of stains that can affect your tile floor safely and effectively, so you don’t have to worry about them anymore!

Stained Tiles

The best way to avoid stains on your tile is to clean it regularly. If you have heavy dirt, mold, or mildew that has built up over time, it may require professional help. A power pressure washer can remove some of these problems. They use strong water jets to blast away years of accumulated grime and soil from tiles. You should know that not just anyone can operate a power pressure washer, so it’s important to find someone with experience. 

If your tile has been neglected and is covered in grime or oil, you will want to call in professional cleaners. Not only will they be able to deep clean the area more thoroughly with the proper machinery, getting into the grout lines and surrounding baseboards, but they can also remove any heavy stains that you can’t get out by simply scrubbing with a power pressure washer. The power of water mixed with an appropriate cleaning solution can cut through even the toughest grime, making it easier than ever before to have a sparkling clean floor again.

Soap scum is one of the biggest problems that can happen to tile and grout. The build-up of soap scum on your tiles is often caused by too much soap being used, excessive detergent and not enough water, or not rinsing your floors off well enough after cleaning. The experts at KG Facility Solutions use chemicals to penetrate grime deep within the grout lines and use machines specifically made for tile and grout cleaning that uses the force of pressure washing to clear out the dirt, scum and applied chemicals, and then suck the contaminated water back into the machine to an exterior van via a long tube. This ensures the deepest possible clean without leaving any dirt or chemical residue behind.

If you have mold or mildew, it is important to know that cleaning with a power pressure washer can make things worse. Mold and mildew thrive in moist environments, so when you spray water on your tiles, you are giving them exactly what they need to grow. It will do more harm than good. The best option is to hire professional cleaners who know how to deal with these types of issues.

Improperly Applied Sealers and Waxes

It is important to use sealers and waxes correctly. Improperly applied sealers or waxes can create problems with tile, such as pitting, build-up, and corrosion. Sealers and waxes should be used on a clean, dry surface. Apply them in small sections at one time, then wait until they are dry before applying another coat. Waxes provide protection against dirt, while sealers protect against damage from chemicals, water vapor, salts, and other staining agents found in food preparation areas.

If you have tried to clean your tile with a power washer or other DIY method and it is still dirty, then it is time for professional tile cleaning. Our professionals can provide power washing, degreasing, and sealing services in one easy package. They have years of experience dealing with heavy dirt issues and know how to get your tile back to looking like new.
