No one looks forward to cleaning tiles, and most of us are even less enthusiastic about the amount of work it takes to scrub away the grime that seems to cling to grout like glue. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it, and Steam Express is happy to handle the task! Our expert Houston Tile & Grout technicians are professionals who will make you wonder how they could possibly have brought back the original shine to your tiled areas so quickly and easily. The comprehensive training our technicians receive enables them to use the most effective methods for making your tiles and grout as beautiful as they’ve ever been.
At Steam Express we make all the hard-to-clean tiled areas throughout your home sparkle! Here are some examples of the tile-cleaning tasks our experts tackle so you don’t have to:
Our tile and grout cleaning process includes the following steps:
Step 1: Clean, degrease, and remove old sealer by applying
cleaning solution and allowing to work.
Step 2: Mechanically scrub tile and grout to loosen accumulated soil, grease, and old sealer.
Step 3: Rinse and extract water and loosened waste products, using high-pressure heated water and a powerful wet-vacuum.
Step 4: Repeat Steps 1 through 3 (clean, scrub, rinse/extract) for more thorough cleaning, rinsing, and waste removal.
Step 5: Speed-dry, spot-clean (as needed), and inspect, to ensure that both tile and grout are clean and stain-free.
Step 6 (optional): Apply pigmented grout-sealer, to waterproof, stain-proof, protect, and further beautify your tiles (recommended).
Steam Express has the tools to get the job done. Equipped with an HT Technology Triplex Plunger Pump, the Torrent can withstand water temperatures up to 185-degrees Fahrenheit and needs no standard service until 3,000 hours. This industrial strength pump has run-dry-seal capability and is adjustable from 400-1200 PSI, giving the operator the power they need to get the job done effectively and efficiently.
Direct water feed increases production by eliminating the need to stop working and fill a solution tank. Automatic dump-out keeps the recovery tank empty at 5.5 gallons per minute through a standard 3/4″ garden hose, which increases our production.
Other innovations include the dual, top-mounted three-stage vacuums that have increased airflow efficiency and dramatically increased water recovery. This means that when cleaning tile, grout and other hard surfaces with this innovative hard surface cleaner, the floors will dry quicker and rooms can be put back into use with minimal downtime.
