Tile & Grout Cleaning
COMMERCIAL TILE & GROUT CLEANING
MULTIPLE CLEANING SOLUTIONS FOR VARIED TILE SURFACES
Modern workplaces typically consist of more than upholstered furnishings and carpeted floors. In fact, tile and other hard surfaces are becoming increasingly commonplace. Elysha’s Cleaning tile cleaning process extracts the dirt from your tile floors, removing it from deep within the pores of the grout. In almost no time, we clean, restore and protect your tired-looking tiles, eliminating the expense that comes with total replacement.
First, we inspect your floors to determine the best treatment process. Then our trained technicians use a proprietary high-pressure rotary tool with dual rotating jets to clean your tile and grout. We combine this tool with the same truck-mounted steam/pressure cleaning that we use to deep clean your carpet. Then we apply specific cleaners that strip away any waxy buildup and extract the dirt from deep within the tile and pores of your grout.
It’s no secret that traffic can be heavy at certain times of the day and on special occasions. Spills and stains appear quickly, transforming your tile floors from beautiful to ugly. Our trained technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to create a high-pressure water and vacuum combination that suctions the dirt from deep within the tile and grout. The entire process takes about 30 to 60 minutes for an average-size room, but businesses with large tiled areas should allow for additional time. This, too, can vary based on several factors, including the size of the tile, amount of soil in the grout lines, and room configuration.
There are several factors to consider when deciding how often the tile cleaning should take place. But cleaning frequency is directly related to the amount of traffic. However, routine maintenance affects how often your tile and grout needs to be professionally cleaned.
The tile cleaning process may be gentle on your floors, but it is highly effective at getting the dirt out. Rely on Elysha’s tile cleaning to give your tile a makeover.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON TILE CLEANING DAY
At Elysha’s Cleaning, we make it our business to not disrupt your business. Our technicians are trained to clean your hard-surface floors efficiently and quickly. From your standpoint, it’s business as usual. That said, it’s important to note that regular professional tile and grout cleanings are the best way to extend the life of your tile floors and keep them looking great. Naturally, you want your employees to be proud of their surroundings, and you’d like the floors to provide a welcoming atmosphere for visitors. Elysha’s Cleaning professionals help you achieve this goal.
First, our trained technicians will inspect your tile and grout, making note of any heavily-soiled or high-traffic areas. They will explain in detail how our hot-water extraction cleaning process works, and of course, they will answer any questions you might have. No need to worry about moving heavy furniture. Just relocate any personal belongings and smaller items to a safe location during the cleaning process. The professional cleaning crew uses our proprietary, state-of-the-art, truck-mounted cleaning equipment, cleaning agents and tools to remove the dirt and discoloration that has accumulated on the floors at your business location.
The high-pressure tile cleaning process suctions the dirt from your tile and grout, reaching areas that even your cleaning crew can’t access, including the dirt and grime that hides deep within the pores of your grout lines. After the cleaning is complete, we add a layer of protection with our clear seal application.
Overall cleaning time varies based on several factors, including the size of the tile, the amount of soil in the grout lines, and the way the rooms are configured. Plan on additional time when adding tile sealer, and be prepared to wait 30 minutes before walking on the floor when sealer is applied. Another 24 hours is required for the sealer to cure, so it’s critical that no liquid come in contact with the floor during that time.
You can count on Elysha’s Cleaning technicians to restore the tile and grout at your workplace. We take care of the cleaning, so you can take care of business.
TILE & GROUT SEALS
SQUARE DEAL ON TILE PROTECTION
Our services extend beyond simply cleaning your tile and grout. At Elysha’s Cleaning, we can also protect it between cleanings. By applying a finishing coat of our clear sealer, we keep your tile and grout looking like new.
Tile sealer penetrates the grout surface to create a protective barrier against spills and permanent stains. It also helps to ensure that future cleanings yield the best possible results. Like carpet, grout is a porous material that easily absorbs spills and soil. Tile sealer creates a protective barrier, which gives you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout. Remember that the type of sealant you choose determines the degree of stain resistance.
After the tile sealer is applied, workers and visitors need to stay off the floor for 30 minutes. This allows for proper drying time. It takes 24 hours for the sealer to cure completely, so please avoid any liquid contact with the sealer during that time.
To preserve the life of the tile sealer, your cleaning personnel should use a neutral cleaner on the floors. Rinsing after mopping will also help to keep the floors looking their best. Caution them to avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners because these can wear away at the sealer and cause it to break down prematurely. Best of all, tile sealer saves time and money because it cuts back on the amount of day-to-day maintenance.
