environmentally friendly cleaning solutionsThe more we learn about the chemicals that comprise common household cleaners, the more concerned we should be about the effects they are having not only on the Earth but on our bodies. While some cleaning agents and materials are effective at cleaning up some difficult messes, they can also pose serious health risks to those who use them or come into contact with them.

Some of these cleaning agents aren’t as effective as many people think, either. When it comes to sustainable floor cleaning solutions, the environmentally responsible choice from Professional Surface Restoration is also the more effective one.

The Professional Surface Restoration Difference

Some cleaning companies use bleach and other harmful chemicals that may not be as effective as many believe when it comes to cleaning messes. For example, many people mistakenly believe that bleach is the best way to kill mold growth, when the reality is that bleach is not an effective solution for mold. Using bleach to clean up mold will likely only mask the mold’s color, partially cleaning it and giving the appearance of cleaning, but mold will likely return on most porous surfaces.

We use environmentally friendly cleaning techniques to provide our clients with intense deep cleaning for many types of flooring materials.

Our five-step process begins with pre-treatment to safely prepare the surface for intense cleaning, then we use heat and high water pressure to dislodge dirt, oils, bacteria, and other particles from the floor before using a vacuum system to clear away the debris and dirty water from the floor. This process outperforms standard bleach-based floor cleaning in a more environmentally responsible and medically safer way.

Why Choose Environmentally Friendly Cleaners?

Many cleaning agents, like bleach and other floor treatment chemicals, can leave behind dangerous residue. This residue may collect in hard-to-reach areas where it can create problems later, such as potential exposure to small children or pets. Bleach-based cleaning techniques can also mask dirt and other messes, not only failing to remove it but also making it more difficult to see in the future.

Chemical cleaners also harm the environment, both during their manufacturing and after disposal. Dirty bleached water can potentially contaminate water supplies. Industrial waste from chemical manufacturing can harm local wildlife and contributes to industrial landfill waste. Chemical residue from unsafe cleaning methods can also degrade air quality inside a home, place of business, or commercial property, potentially causing respiratory irritation and other medical issues for guests, visitors, tenants, and customers.

Conventional chemical cleaners can only offer middling performance and substantial risk compared to the environmentally responsible cleaning techniques we use at Professional Surface Restoration. Our EPA-approved, environmentally friendly floor cleaning solutions are a responsible, effective, and safer option for residential and commercial properties.

3 Ways Cleaning Tools Can Make All the Difference

cleaning toolsCleaning equipment technology has come a long way in recent years. The right cleaning tools can make all the difference in the results. Here’s how Professional Surface Restoration uses the best cleaning tools for an incredibly deep level of clean.

The Best Cleaning Tools Penetrate to Remove Stains

When we clean, we start with a pre-treatment to loosen deep stains. Our high-tech TMT Surface Cleaner is designed for indoor hard surfaces such as tile and grout, natural stone, and granite. Upright models power through the toughest stains on floors and brick. Handheld edging tools clean fireplaces, back splashes, and the hardest-to-reach areas. We use high-pressure water and over 200 degrees of heat to restore hard surfaces to their natural beauty.

TMT Surface Cleaners Remove Grout Stains

Over time, all grout becomes stained. It’s made from cement that was poured into the joints between your tile. Concrete is porous, so it absorbs anything it touches. If the grout is in your kitchen, spills and food particles cause discoloration. In the bathroom, mildew grows on damp grout and tile. If your home has hard water, mineral deposits and soap scum might accumulate on grout.

You may have tried to scrub your discolored grout with smelly cleaning solutions and lots of elbow grease, only to find it still looked stained. It’s frustrating to put in all that work and not see results.

Professional Surface Restoration restores tile and grout to its original condition using TMT Surface Cleaners, and then we seal it to prevent future stains.

Our specialized cleaning equipment uses heat and high pressure to remove stains from grout and tile. First, we spray your floors with a tile-safe alkaline detergent. Then we scrub your entire floor with pressurized hot water. Last, we apply a sealer that protects your floors without changing their appearance.

Our Cleaners Safely Restore Stone

Granite, marble, travertine, and other types of natural stone can start to look worn over time. The textures and irregularities that make them so beautiful often catch dirt and debris. Commercial cleaning solutions can damage stone. Professional Surface Restoration uses TMT tools to make them look new again.

Our stone cleaning experts take the following steps to restore your stone to like-new condition. They:

  • Inspect your stone to identify problem areas and specific needs.
  • Consider foot traffic and level of discoloration present.
  • Protect furniture and wood trim around stone floors prior to cleaning.
  • Apply our advanced cleaning products and scrub by hand or with our high-tech tools.
  • Remove dirt and debris with hot-water extraction.
  • Use water and diamond abrasives to restore sheen.
  • Apply a high-gloss shine to remove light scratches and scuffs.
