Along the entire southwest coast of Florida our cities have become a disaster zone.

Hurricane Ian hit fast and hit hard leaving many homes flooded up to 10 ft.
Like most residents who never experienced a natural disaster such as Ian, they are left with so many questions.
One of those being, “how do I clean my tile flooring now?!”
Don’t worry, you won’t have to replace your tile or grout…


This article will explain below, just how we sanitize and use industrial truck-mount equipment to deep clean tile and grout using our signature restoration cleaning process. Here is our step by step process…


1.) Assess And Protect

We first evaluate the tile and grout by performing a walk-through of your space. Then we place corner guards at every point the vacuum and water hoses will make contact with, in order to protect walls and baseboards.

2.) Sanitization And Pre-spray Process

We apply to your tile floors, a specialized EPA approved disinfectant, which kills 99.9% of bacteria, mold and viruses. Then we apply a soiling lifting solution to loosen and lift dirt, grease and grime.

3.) CRB Agitation

We use a counter rotating brush machine to scrub the tile and grout lines at every angle and groove.
This process agitates the dirt and activates the pre spray solution to lift embedded, stuck on dirt. Hand scrubbing will never get this close to dirty grout!

4.) Hot Water Extraction

We use truck-mount hot water extraction equipment to extract solution and dirt in your tile and grout. This method delivers over 800 PSI of suction power and

water temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Multiple water jets rotate and spin at a fast rate, while sucking out the dirty water. The dirty water is then pulled through the hose to our waste tank, taking your dirt away with us. Leaving you with incredibly clean floors that look amazing!

5.) Quick Dry

Our high powered 360 fans ensure fast drying times, and no moisture is left on the tile or grout before applying the sealant.

6.) Grout Sealing / Grout Recoloring

Grout sealing is a crucial step. In fact, we think it is just as important as cleaning your tile floor. High quality protective sealants prevent dirt from re-entering into the porous grout. The grout sealant fills-in and creates a barrier that will protect your tile and grout cleaning much longer.

There are 2 options to choose: Clear sealant or Color sealant, Clear sealant is transparent and will protect both the tile and grout. The color sealant is an epoxy stain sealant with a variety of color options, only applied on the grout lines.
