This week Pete and Joanne were working together to bring these porcelain tiles in Cheltenham back to their beautiful best.

Pete had initially attended in January to assess the tiles and discuss the clean with the customer. It was clear from the survey that this would require two technicians to achieve the best results.

After the flooring has been cleared as much as possible, it was time to start a thorough vacuuming and sweeping to remove any loose debris. The rotary agitator is then used, combined with some environmentally friendly solutions, to break down embedded soil and dirt to be lifted away and removed. With these tiles, the grout can often be an area in which dirt gathers and embeds. To address this, Pete and Joanne worked on the grout by hand to ensure dirt is lifted and can be removed.

The image above is a great example of how much soil can be embedded into tiles. Here you can see the right hand side has been cleaned and the left has not. Prior to the cleaning you would not have looked at the tiles and thought they were particularly soiled, the right hand side shows there was a significant amount of impacted dirt that was dulling the colour and shine of the tiles.

After all the soil has been lifted, a wet vacuum is used to extract all the dirt and water, and the flooring is then rinsed. Depending on the level of soiling sometimes this may need repeating.

After this process has been repeated as many times as is necessary to get them nice and clean they are left to dry, they can be forced dry using an air mover if necessary.

These tiles do not require sealing.

Tiles like these are a beautiful choice for any home, it is important to get them professionally deep cleaned in order to stop the accumulation of dirt that domestic home cleaning is not strong enough to prevent. Regular deep cleaning and resealing where needed can increase the lifespan of your tiles, meaning you get your tiles lasting longer and therefore get more for your money, as well as being more friendly to the environment.
