Ceramic Tile Cleaning
Q: What process do you use to clean ceramic tile & grout?
- Hot water extraction by use of various attachments connected to our hot water and suction system or our vapor steaming system.
- Horizontal and vertical tiles require slightly different cleaning solutions and attachments to clean properly so floor tiles generally get pre-spray, agitation, and extraction and rinsing. Wall tiles may require extra steps or different cleaning solutions to get the best cleaning and extraction to leave them clean.
- The agitation stage may differ for floor and wall tiles due to gravity and accessibilty of the tile with our machines. The last step after extraction and rinsing is to dry. We have high velocity blowers to help speed the drying process along. We also offer drying equipment rental if you need a large area dried quickly, or need to speed up the process more than the standard drying time.
- For back splashes like those found in the kitchen, we may use vapor cleaning (superheated steam) to minimize water usage and lower risks of damaging delicate wall coverings.
Q: How do you charge for this service?
A: We typically charge by the square foot. For a more exact estimate, you can text a picture of the tile to be cleaned to us or contact us for a free in person estimate.
Dryer Vent Cleaning
Q: What is your price for this service?
A: If dryer vent cleaning is the only service, we charge a minimum of $110 with the typical bill in this situation falling between $110 and $150. These lower end prices reflect a situation where we can easily access the dryer vent from the outside of the home (ground floor level). In situations where we must move large objects or cannot access the dryer vent from outside (i.e. 3rd story laundry room, etc.) our price may come closer to $150 to reflect the extra labor required. It is worth keeping in mind, we offer this service for free with any whole home air duct cleaning.
Q: How often should I get the dryer vent cleaned?
A: This service is recommended at least once a year, and more frequently for high volumes of laundry in the household.
House Washing/Soft Washing
Q: What is soft washing of houses?
A: Using low pressure waster & application of chemical cleaning solutions and low pressure rinse. This method puts the least strain on delicate vinyl siding but also requires some prep work like protection of plants, and moving certain objects as needed.
Q: What is the difference between soft washing & house washing?
A: Basically house washing is just using lower pressure water and chemicals to clean rather than relying on high pressures that may lead to building damage.
Q: How much does house soft washing cost?
A: While every job has unique needs and costs can vary, the average house washing job we get called to generally runs between $250 and $500 depending on size.
Q: What is considered flat work power washing?
A: Driveways, parking lots, outdoor patios, side walks are all examples of flat work power washing.
Q: What is the difference between hot and cold power washing?
A: They are the same except on jobs requiring hot pressurized water, a diesel burner heats the pressurized water up to 230 degrees to melt away greasy messes or stuck on grime that cold water simply cannot tackle.
Q: Does your company offer any kind of indoor power washing or water extraction services for residential properties.
A: Yes, we do! Our company is unique in fact, that we can extract the dirty wash water when performing an indoor cleaning service. Anyone can spray water on dirty surfaces, but we can extract the messy puddles to avoid re-staining! Indoor event spaces especially enjoy this service because the space can be cleaned and turned around quickly with less downtime than traditional pressure washing.
Q: When does your company recommend heated/high pressure power washing
A: Any flatwork (concrete, outdoor brick or tile. We have also found this useful for garage floors and concrete basements which we also extract excess water from so dry time will be quicker and your family can get back to what really matters.
Q: Does your company use any chemicals during washing my house's exterior walls?
A: Yes, in most cases we use a mild surfactant and 12% pool bleach just strong enough to get the job done. To protect your home's vegetation we also water it down before, during, and after the cleaning and give everything a good final rinse to ensure chemicals won't linger and damage your home or vegetation.
Q: Does your company use any chemicals when heated power washing my sidewalks, patio, or driveway?
A: Only when we need to! We first attempt to sweep up and remove any debris and remove small spots from the surface. If there is a particularly bad stain we may need to use a cleaning solution to remove it to the client's satisfaction. Often we can use mild degreasers for stained concrete when pressure doesn't work and our high quality surface scrubbers do an excellent job at breaking up most spots from discolored concrete.
