How to Clean Ceramic Floor Tiles

A Retirement Village located in Orange NSW needed ceramic tile cleaning in one of their units in preparation for handover in coming weeks. The ceramic tiles in this property were particularly dirty. There had also been minor renovations completed recently so there was a significant amount of builder’s dust that needed to be cleared up as well. The team at McArdles Cleaning Services set to work to help bring this property back up to standard by cleaning some very tired and worn ceramic tiles.

Cleaning Ceramic Tiles

Some of the renovations carried out involved replacing the carpet so our technician placed drop sheets on the carpeted areas first to ensure they stayed clean and dust free. The tiles were then dry swept to ensure all thick dust, dirt and large particles were separated and disposed of prior to wetting the floors in the next cleaning steps.

A specialised cleaning solution was applied to all tiled areas before using a special grout broom and scrubbing pads to agitate the area. This technique was used to break down stubborn soiling and lift any dirt particles out from within the grouting of the tiles.

Our rotary dual action machine RX20 was then used to clean the affected areas by applying both high pressure cleaning (with 121 degrees of heat and with pressure between 1000 and 3000 psi) and extraction at the same time.

Due to the extent of dirt and grime on these tiles a dual clean was carried out. This meant that our ceramic tile cleaning process was repeated a second time with an acidic solution for best results.

Upon completion of cleaning ceramic tiles our technician then dry mopped the area ensuring that any excess water was removed and the tiles were left sparkling clean. High speed air movers were then placed strategically around the cleaned tiles to dry all areas.

McArdles Cleaning Services are known for their extensive knowledge, care and quality on how to clean ceramic floor tiles and grout. Next time you get your carpets cleaned by us, simply ask for a tile cleaning demonstration as well so you can see the difference for yourself!

How to Clean Slate Floor Tiles

Recently our services were required in Bathurst NSW. Our client had very tired and worn green slate tiles and wanted them stripped back, thoroughly cleaned and resealed with a high gloss finish.  They had advised us they were contemplating replacing the tiles due to the amount of time and effort it was taking her weekly to keep them clean however, decided to give them one last shot at survival.

How to Clean Slate Floor Tiles Professionally

Our technician began bringing these tiles back to life by first stripping them of any old sealant that was left on the surface. A full thorough clean then took place beginning with a dry sweep of the area to remove dry soils and large particles.  Our specialised alkaline cleaning solution was then applied to the area before agitating with a grout broom and rotary agitation. This technique brings most dirt and grime to the surface and removes any heavy soiling. High pressure cleaning and extraction then followed. This took place using our truck mount machine and a unique tool and attachment which applies a dual action high pressure steam and dirty water extraction simultaneously. The area was then dry mopped and high speed air movers were positioned accordingly and left for some time to ensure it was perfectly dry before the sealing took place.

When our technician was happy to proceed with the sealing he confirmed with the clients what look they were going for one last time. Our clients advised that they wanted a high gloss/wet look finish.

In order for our technician to achieve this look he had to apply three coats of wet look sealer. Upon completion of this job, we requested our clients for a final inspection. Our clients were absolutely thrilled with the end result and could not have been happier. We have since had a call from them as they wanted to thank us again for the amazing job and to inform us that her tiles not only look a million dollars but since our visit it has taken less than half the time to maintain the tiles. This is the process on how to clean slate floor tiles professionally, which majority of your run of the mill house cleaners can’t do.

If your tile floors just look old, worn, dirty and take you way too much time to clean, then you should give us a call on 02 6361 8447. Don’t waste any more precious time as we have the technician and the right cleaning solution for you ready to go.

Maintenance cleaning on hard surface floors is not easy – Wood, Vinyl, Grout and Tile are all very difficult to clean thoroughly. All of these hard flooring require different cleaning frequencies, ranging from weekly to sometimes even daily. Most people are unaware of the correct techniques involved in cleaning hard floors and thus end up with untidy floors or even worse, cause damage to the floors.

It is vital to avoid acid based cleaners, as they cannot clean the floor completely and may even stain or damage the floor (Vinegar etc.). Bleach is also highly ineffective while cleaning hard floors. Disinfectants can clean the floors, but attract soil and other dirt particles afterwards, being positively charged. Cleaners with high alkalinity and methylated cleaners usually leave residues and dull the floors finish. So what is the correct way of cleaning hard floors?

Bottle of Bio Safe Natural Clean solution

The first call of action while cleaning hard floor spills is to mop up the spill immediately. The best way to do this is with the Natural Clean solution and micro fibre mopping systems. The Natural Clean solution is a highly concentrated cleaning agent, therefore it should be used only in a diluted form. Ideally, a spray bottle containing Natural Clean and water in a ratio of 1:80 should be used. This will ensure that the solution does not cause any damage at all to the floor being cleaned. An 8-figure motion should be performed using the Micro fibre mopping system. Care should be taken about the mopping action. There should only be side to side movement in a figure of 8, without forward or backward pushing at all.

For Grout and Tile based hard floors, maintenance cleaning is only required once in several months. Before cleaning, it is advisable to the mop/dust the floor using the Micro Fibre mopping system. The Natural Clean solution should be diluted using warm water, in the same ratio of 1:80. A Grout broom, dipped in the cleaning solution, should be used to rigorously clean the floor area. Any excess solution on the floor can easily be wiped off using the Micro Fibre mopping system.

We also have our Armour Plate Neutral Floor Cleaner which is a concentrated neutral floor cleaner designed for cleaning of all commercial and domestic floor surfaces. It contains surfactant that emulsifies greasy soils and holds them in suspension without redepositing over other areas of the floor or surface being cleaned. It is IDEAL to use on polished floors. It is safe to use on all surfaces, from vinyl to linoleum, slate, terrazzo, marble, sealed timber floors etc.; and is suitable to use with either Auto Scrubbers or manual maintenance cleaning methods.

Mopping system and cleaner available for purchase;

Use it dry for dusting or wet for mopping. The patented Spin Mop Spinner rotates at over 2600 revolutions per minute to expel the water from the Micro fibre mop head.

Tile grout is neither your friend nor any homeowner’s. Let’s face it. Your grout is usually bright clean, but when dirt and grime accumulates in it, the sight is frustrating. Cleaning your grout is a chore a lot more unbearable since you need to spend hours on your knees.

Tile and stone flooring adds beauty and value to your home. As one of the most used items, your tile flooring may get neglected and start to look dull. Many homeowners in Orange & Bathurst prefer tile flooring because it adds styles and it is durable. Although regular cleaning and sanitising help maintain the cleanliness of tiles, this may not be enough to prolong its life.

When you want to make your tile or natural stone flooring last longer, you must invest in tile sealing it on a regular basis. This way your tile floor becomes clean and healthy for your family in the long run. Grout sealant is needed to make it happen. Grout is made of sand and this is used to fill up holes. It must be sealed properly because it is very porous in nature and it can be a perfect surface for bacteria, fungus, mould, and dirt to thrive.

Tile sealing is very important. Tile flooring, particularly in high traffic areas, will be ruined if left untreated. Sealing must be done after your tile is laid if you want to make your flooring stay clean or its colour not fading. This will protect your tiles from stain, spill, and other substances and lessen damage when exposed to high traffic. A sealer can save you thousands in repair and replacement and improve your tile flooring.

Whether you have a beautiful natural stone flooring in your shower or countertops and you want to preserve it for long as possible, you need to provide extra protection with the use of sealant. Sealing a dirty grout should not be done because stains can develop, which will be impossible to remove later. Sealing or resealing grout must be done once a year for high traffic areas and after it has been deep cleaned. Tile flooring with less traffic can be resealed once every four or five years.

Natural stone tiles in your home, in particular, needs sealing. This is extremely important and is needed from new. McArdles Cleaning Services can help with natural stone sealing and grout cleaning. We can maintain the cleanliness of natural stone tile and keep it a beautiful asset for your home.
