Commercial Tile Cleaning

Travertine Shower Cleaned in Huntington Beach, California


Before stone was cleaned
This travertine shower was never caulked properly when the glass was installed. The results, as you can see here, is that hard water constantly leaked through and left heavy alkaline deposits.

After stone was cleaned
Although acid-based products can remove alkaline deposits, they should not be used on honed or polished stone because the acid can etch the smooth, shiny surface and make it dull. These results were achieved without acidic chemicals.

Removing Acrylic Sealer from Brick in Corona Del Mar

For this job we went to Corona del Mar and found that this Brick Hardscape needed the acrylic sealer removed.

Before
Although many “professionals” say otherwise, we do NOT recommend using acrylic sealer(s) on most brick hardscape. The results, as pictured here, are often very negative! Depending on the surface, the sealer can tend to blister and turn opaque.

In Process
As we strip away the layers, out comes the natural color of and variations of the brick!

In Process
The application of multiple stripping agents helps lift the sealer off the brick’s surface.

We Cleaned Hexagonal Mexican Pavers in Long Beach

Long Beach – Mexican Pavers Patio – Hexagon Tiles

Before
This Mexican paver patio needed a great deal of restoration work! The entire patio had been neglected for many years. In additions, the previous owner had applied a brown stain which took away the color variation and character of the tiles.

After
Now the distinctive colors are prevalent, and the entire room has a totally different vibe!

Before 2
The white alkaline deposits pictured here are coming from two sources: one of them is sprinklers which were allowed to over-water and left constant puddles. The other is “efflorescence” which occurs when salts and minerals leach through the tiles from the ground underneath.

After 2
Now you can see all alkaline residue removed and the natural beauty of the floor comes out! Mexican paver tiles are very soft, very porous and can unfortunately have varied results after restoration. We are experts with these tiles which require a great deal of patience and diligence!

Cleaning a Quarry Tile Living Room in Costa Mesa

We cleaned this Quarry Tile livingroom in Costa Mesa, California and if you have quarry tile we can clean yours too!

Before
*54 years and never cleaned once!
This photo shows a quarry tile living room floor which NEVER should have been coated with any acrylic sealer, much less multiple layers. The grout lines are so embedded with grime, the recoated with sealer, that many have become level with the tiles!

After
Now you see a very clean and PROPERLY sealed quarry tile floor. This job is an example of small square footage but many, many hours of labor to get it right.

Before 2
Quarry tile is often used in commercial kitchens and restaurants because of its durability. The grout can be sealed, but the tiles should not. This acrylic sealer now brings attention to every scratch and imperfection.

This Irvine home has a combination of Slate and Flagstone that make up a patio, the front driveway and hardscape in the back yard.

Before
This home has more than 2,000 square feet of random slate and flagstone in front and back. As you can see, it has become colorless, while constant sprinkler run off leaves alkaline deposits.

Cleaning of a Travertine Floor in Laguna Niguel

There are two sets of images from the Travertine Floor we cleaned and sealed with a Matte Finish in Laguna Niguel.

Before
Travertine flooring has become a popular choice, but unfortunately requires regular maintenance to keep up appearances. The natural voids and indentations can trap soilage and deteriorate the stone as pictured here.

After
What a difference a day makes! After four levels of cleaning and filling most voids we applied a premium penetrating sealer which left a matte (non-gloss) finish. The results were dramatic!

There is also a set of before and after picture of the travertine cleaning and sealing that we did in the kitchen as well.

Polished Travertine Flooring – San Clemente

Travertine tile is available in many finishes and qualities but leans toward being soft and porous. This family room floor showed the effects of constant abuse by four kids and three dogs.
