Tile and Grout Cleaning

tile and grout cleaningOur goal as tile and grout cleaners, is to make your tile and grout look as good as it did the day it was installed. We use premium equipment and cleaning agents to make your tile & grout sparkle.

Below is the basic process we follow when cleaning tile and grout.

  • Step 1- Assessment
    This allows us to identify concerns and set clear expectations prior to cleaning.
  • Step 2 – Dry Soil Removal
    This is one of the most important part of the cleaning process. Pre-vacuum all surfaces to be cleaned using CRI certified commercial-grade canister vacuums equipped with HEPA filters. This prepares the surfaces for preconditioning and hot water extraction cleaning.
  • Step 3 – Application of a pre-conditioner
    Application of pre-conditioner spray to break down soiling, sticky substances, or grease that has become embedded into the grout lines.
  • Step 4 – Agitation (as needed)
    Agitate heavily soiled areas or traffic areas with a counter-rotating brush, or with a grout brush. This helps increase the effectiveness of the pre-conditioner that has been applied.
  • Step 5 – Hot Water Extraction
    Clean the tile and grout using a hot water extraction system (either a truckmount or a portable cleaning system would be utilized, depending on the cleaning location). Typically a extraction detergent specifically matched to the type of surface being cleaned is utilized in the final cleaning process.
  • Step 6 – Apply Grout Sealer
    The cleaning process removes the original grout sealer from the grout, therefore we recommend re-application of grout sealer after cleaning. This helps the grout to be much more resistant to spills or stains, and easier to clean in the future.
  • Step 8 – Post-Cleaning Inspection
    Final walkthrough of cleaned surfaces to ensure the client is pleased with the outcome.

[Spectrum] crews came and cleaned several thousand square feet of carpeting in our meeting rooms, hallways, and office area. We were very impressed with the work that they did. They were prompt and responsive to our needs. Their staff was courteous and professional. They were careful in their work and we appreciated their sensitivity to our staff and operation.

Jay C., CEO

The morning the pipe burst in DuPage Children’s Museum, Spectrum was on the scene within an hour of being called. . . . Each and every person who we worked with demonstrated a calm and professional manner that was exceptional during a period of such loss and adjustment for the Museum staff. . . . I couldn’t imagine a better group of people to work with through a situation like this.

Kimberly S., Director of Exhibits and Operations

The water/sewer clean up team was courteous and worked so neatly, swiftly, efficiently.  In the midst of a “sorry” situation, their cheerfulness and compassion for (name deleted) residents was endearing.  An impressive company indeed.

Spectrum cleaned after a wine spill on our light tan colored carpet. They did a phenomenal job! The techs were friendly and efficient. They got the stain out completely and the rest of our carpets, and our furniture, look fantastic! I would highly recommend Spectrum!
