We Know Tile & Grout.
Disinfecting Deep Cleans
Our method for grout cleaning is a 5 step (minimum) process, which consists of the application of high alkaline degreasers then agitated with aggressive rotary grit brushes, grout brushes and deck brushes. Stubborn stains and ugly mop lines on baseboards are eliminated by vapor steamers and special detailing tools. After wet vac extraction and flushing the floor with clean water we “shock” the grout using a low pH cleaner. The final mop solution is fortified with a hospital grade disinfectant.
Tile manufacturers recommend commercial buildings have tile and grout cleaned every 12 to 18 months due to frequent foot traffic.
Process Ideal For:
All Types Tile & Grout
Grout Color Seal
Madison, Milwaukee, Green Bay, Wisconsin colored grout pro sealers lock in color & seal out stains. Colored sealants were designed as a green link for easily cleaning porous grout. Our cleaning solutions are fortified with a hospital grade disinfectant that deep cleans the tile and grout which is vitally important. The tiles are durable and will last for decades but the grout between is very porous and will collect dirt, grease, bacteria, mold, etc. and could harbor infectious pathogens. The disinfecting deep clean process prepares the grout for the color seal application. This application preserves the new look, seals out dirt and stains while keeping the grout uniform in color. Grout color sealants are endorsed by national grout manufacturers, adding value and beauty to flooring investments when professionally applied. Maintaining these surfaces will be much easier when using neutral pH cleaners instead of scrubbing on your hands and knees with harsh chemicals.
Tile & Grout Clear Seal
We perform the disinfecting deep clean process followed by clear sealing both tile & grout with a commercial grade penetrating sealer. (Depending on age, and atmosphere, uniform grout is not guaranteed with clear sealers.)
Grout Color Stain/Sealer Easy Green Clean Instructions
Spreading dirty water around is not cleaning nor is it maintenance. Following the proper maintenance procedures ensures lasting, high quality and professional results. Dry maintenance should be done on a daily basis. Wet maintenance could be done weekly, depending on how much traffic the floor receives. Spot clean when needed. When SMS finishes a grout color sealing project, keep the floor dry for 1 week (depending on foot traffic) to allow proper cure.
