Cleaning dirty floor tile and grout can be such a hassle! It takes a lot of effort to get the luster and shine these floors had when they were brand new. It’s not impossible to achieve however. While cleaning tile and grout might not be something you enjoy, Trinity Renewal Systems has a few tips to make it easier.
How to Clean Dirty Floor Tile
As with any floor cleaning project, the right equipment is critical for best results. Once you’re set up with the proper tools, follow these simple steps to make your tile and grout look great for your clients.
1. Set your machine to Speed 1 to prevent the chemical mixture from getting on the baseboards. You don’t want to damage any wood or cause discoloration.
2. Mix Anomaly according to the directions on the label. Anomaly is fantastic for ceramic tile and completely free of butyl.
3. Pre-spray the entire area with a fine mist and let that sit for 20-30 minutes. You might need to let it sit longer for dirtier grout lines. Be sure to not oversaturate the tile or grout.
4. Scrub the entire area with our green tile and grout brush.
5. Remove Anomaly from the floor with Gladiator Pads. Gladiator Pads work on all machine types. They come in 15″ and 21″ width sizes.
6. If there’s any stubborn stains left behind, apply 40 volume peroxide to the grout line. Leave for 10-15 minutes. You can then mop it with clean, damp Gladiator Pads.
7. Buff to shine and remove haze with a Super Rubberized White Pad.
Cleaning dirty floor tiles and grout can take time to master. The process can be trial and error, but if you follow our steps and the information provided on the product labels, you’ll achieve success in no time. If you have any questions, please comment on this post.
