SparkleTeam crews have the necessary equipment, training and expertise to provide state of the art carpet extraction. SparkleTeam’s method for carpet extraction (cleaning) uses warm water and an accelerated hydrogen peroxide product, rather than soap or detergents that usually leave an oily residue in the carpet. With any service SparkleTeam provides, you can count on our Service Providers to use the USGBC’s LEED-based cleaning practices.
Tile & Grout Cleaning + Sealant
Over time, tile and grout can become embedded with dirt and grime, making it very difficult to remove. Porcelain and ceramic tile, although traditionally non-porous surfaces, fade due to grime, dirt and/or heavy traffic. Grout is a porous material and is the biggest contributor to the retention of dirt and odors, especially in restrooms, which may also give a misrepresentation of your building or office. SparkleTeam tile and grout cleaning for commercial properties uses the proper techniques to effectively remove dirt and soil from deep in the grout lines.
SparkleTeam’s procedure uses an environmentally friendly tile and grout cleaner to pre-soak the tile and grout to lift dirt and grime. This prepares the tile and grout for a scrub using a low speed floor machine with appropriate brush and mechanically extracts the dirty solution. The final stage is a rinse using a neutral tile and grout cleaner. Sealant is optional, however, sealant will provide a long lasting cleanliness to tile and grout floors.
VCT Floor Maintenance Program:
When the finish on a VCT floor has exceeded its service life, it becomes porous and will hold dirt, grime and stains which can no longer be removed with mopping alone. Over time, VCT flooring can look faded with discolorations, dents or ridges from furniture, and scuff marks due to moving furniture. To freshen the office or building’s VCT flooring, SparkleTeam crews offer a flawless and high quality strip and refinish with environmentally friendly products and solutions.
SparkleTeam’s restoration process uses a safe chemical stripper and then uses a low speed scrubbing machine to emulsify the finish. Once the finish is removed, our crews use a neutral floor cleaner and apply a base coat or sealer for a finished look.
Rather than stripping VCT floors to the tile base, SparkleTeam’s Spray & Buff maintenance program allows the original finish to remain undisturbed. Spray and buffing provides a refreshed look to the VCT flooring and removes light scratches, minor blemishes and embedded dirt from the top layer of the existing finish while enhancing the appearance and extending the life of the finish. This sustainable maintenance program for VCT floors should be performed monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly, depending on the floor traffic.
