Shhh!!! It's A Secret.

Do you have glass shower doors and/or walls? Do they have a build up of soap scum and water deposits that you just can't seem to clean? Let me give you a real doozy of a cleaning tip. The next time you want to clean your glass shower door or walls try using Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser. It works extremely well in breaking down soap scum and water deposits on glass doors and glass walls.

Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser is a sponge that only has one ingredient - ethanol. If you are not familiar with this chemical it is alcohol derived from corn. It may take more than one attempt to remove all of the scum and deposits but it will eventually come off. Make sure that you are using hot water when cleaning. Wear rubber gloves to protect your hands from the hot water. Every time you increase the water temperature by 17 degrees you increase the "molecular excitability" by 100%.  In other words it works better. Also have on hand a scotch pad scrubber to help further breakdown the scum and deposits.

Once you have it cleaned you want it to remain that way for as long as possible. Apply a coat of RainX Car Finish to the glass. You can usually by RainX at any car part store such as Kragen, Chief or anywhere car cleaning supplies are sold. You can usually find this item at Walgreens, CVC, Safeway and Bel Air. This will create a invisible barrier between the glass and the deposits making your future clean ups much easier. Because the RainX helps to shed the water it lowers the probability of mold and mildew in your shower. RainX will probably last 6-12 months depending on how often you use your shower, the hardness of your water, and the types of soap that you use.

For remaining tile and grout in your shower you should hire us to professionally clean and possibly seal. We can save you a lot of time, sore muscles, and an achy back.

As always I hope this has been helpful to you.

Oops! Next time ask for directions.

Every so often I receive a telephone call from a potential client wanting me to "fix" a certain cleaning problem. A man called me not too long ago asking me what I charge to clean tile & grout. I told him, like I tell everyone else, that I would first need to inspect his floor, do some testing, and then I would be able to give him a written estimate that would be good for (30) days.

He proceeded to tell me that he had already cleaned it and sealed the grout, so I asked him why was he calling me? He went on to tell me that he had bought a rental property and tried to clean the tile with muriatic acid first, then sulphuric acid. Finally he said he sealed it, but was puzzeled that the stains were still visible. I am still baffled that this person would seal a floor that still looked dirty, in essence trapping the stains into the grout, but this is what he did. In his own words "The floor looks like crap".

Folks, NEVER CLEAN YOUR TILE & GROUT FLOOR WITH ANY KIND OF ACID!!! ACID DOES NOT CLEAN - IT ETCHES OR SANDS DOWN THE GROUT!!! In order to remove grease, grime, and common household yuk from your tile and grout lines you will need to use an alkaline cleaner with a pH level of 11.0 or higher. We typically clean tile & grout with a pH cleaner of 12.0 - 13.0, water temperature of above 210 degrees, and water pressure above 1200 psi. We can typically clean, sanitize, dry, and restore your entire floor in less than (1) day. There is real science that goes into cleaning a tile & grout floor. If you don't know the science then please ask for directions.

If you have questions about this blog please contact me anytime.
