Cleaning poorly maintained tiles to bring them back to life
In our industry there are many challenges we face with rejuvenating all types of surfaces whether it be tiles, vinyl, carpets and the list goes on. In this instance a common area requiring tile rejuvenation was a challenge as the build up of grime was stubborn.
We applied a product called crossfire which we found works wonders once you allow it to penetrate into the tile. Our next step was to use a slow speed swing buffer with a tynex brush to agitate the grime on the tile .
We then cleaned the tile with a neutral detergent called viewquick. The end result was pleasing and the client was over the moon.
This issued occurred due to not using the correct chemicals to maintain the floor to a high standard. With all cleaning of any surfaces , correct procedure and product is the key to achieve the end result.
