Tile & Grout
Cleaning & Sealing

Ceramic and Porcelain tile are the most abused and overlooked floor and wall surfaces in the home, simply because of the care involved in cleaning them. No one is anxious to re-live the terrible memories of scrubbing each tile and grout line for hours with a small brush, using those irritating, harsh, and unsafe chemicals. Most of us would rather rearrange our sock drawer.

So we wait and wait…

CLEANING PROCESS

  1. Pre-inspection: We will evaluate the condition of your floor and point out any damaged or broken areas. Then give you an idea of expected results.
  2. Dry Soil Removal: Next we will thoroughly sweep or vacuum your entire floor that we are to clean.
  3. Protect Any Delicate Furnishings: We will tape and or tarp off any delicate furnishings for protection.
  4. Pre-Spray: Next we apply a specially designed tile & grout cleaning agent to help loosen the embedded soil.
  5. Hand Scrub Grout Joints: Now we will use a grout brush to scrub all grout joints to further loosen the soil.
  6. Pressure Wash and Extract: Using our specially designed hard surface tools we will pressure wash your floor at 1000 psi @ 275+ degrees. No worries the pressured water is self contained and will stay on your floor only.
  7. Dry: The floor is then dried using turbo dryers.
  8. Post Inspection: We now will inspect floor results.
  9. Seal (optional): Last we will seal your grout using high quality grout sealers. If you have a natural stone we will now seal that as well.

MAINTENANCE

General cleaners not specifically formulated for natural stone or tiles are never recommended. These can breakdown the sealer, thereby removing its protective properties, thus making the stone and tile grout susceptible to stains. Worse yet, many cleaning products, including those that contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia can etch away the polish, discolor the surface, or even scratch your stone. Many cleaners have what is called a chelating agent in them. This agent breaks down and dissolves minerals in hard water. Since all stone is made up of minerals, these types of cleaners will dissolve and cause streaks over prolonged use. Advantage Steam recommends use of a neutral floor cleaner such as StoneTech Stone Cleaner.

Ceramic Tile & Grout

Ceramic tile and grout is man-made clay fired material. Glazed ceramic tile does not normally require any protective treatment. It is the glaze itself that gives the tile its excellent protection and resistance to the absorption of dirt. Many of the new ceramic tiles in today's market are manufactured to look like real stone. For best results, have your ceramic tile and grout sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner such as StoneTech Stone and Tile Cleaner.

Terracotta Tile or Saltillo Tile

Terracotta tile or Saltillo tile is one of the oldest ceramic materials made by man. This type of tile is created by mixing clay and water, leaving it to dry naturally and then baking it in a kiln. Saltillo tile has particular characteristics that demand special treatment. For best results, have your terracotta tile or saltillo sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner such as StoneTech Stone and Tile Cleaner.‚Äč

We were referred to Joel and Advantage Steam by a good friend to get our carpets cleaned. It was an easy process to set up, he was on time, professional and did a fantastic job. Everything looks, feels and smells great! We've had our carpets cleaned in the past and Joel was top notch well above the others. Will definitely use again. Highly recommend!

Had Joel come into my house that I bought in October as my carpets were filthy. They were so bad that I thought I would have to replace them. However, once he got done, I was so impressed with how clean they were...and still are! So many other places, the dirt comes back to the surface, but with his service, the dirt is gone!
