Shifting Gears

Those who know me know might find it hard to believe that I was on the cover of Campus Coalition, the Campus Crusade for Christ magazine. It's true - I took park in a spring break bike trip they offered and managed to get on the cover and featured in the article. I learned some things on that trip, including the idea that I'm not really forcing myself to believe things.

Here is an abbreviated version of that story included in the larger context of bicycles, learning new skills, and learning to change behavior.

  1. There are many types of tiles available nowadays.

    The method of tile cleaning will depend more on the tile type.
    However there are couple of things to be followed to add the sheen and glow of the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they are
    split to prevent the stains. Place a doormat which helps
    in reduction of mud or dirt entering through
    footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile and grout cleaning process, types of
    tiles are as follow –

    Ceramic
    Porcelain
    Stone

    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult if the surface is cleaned regularly.
    The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day or just sweep it.
    The wet mopping is required once in a week. Use of mild floor cleaners will do for the mopping.
    One can make it at home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.
    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.

    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners can be
    used for the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as they are natural minerals.
    Never use harsh floor cleaners. Sweep or vacuum
    clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry mop to soak any type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the grout, i.e.
    the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously.
    Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease etc. The surface looks shabby if the grout is
    unclean. It can also be a cause of mildew or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms.
    It is best to have a seal (colour or clear)
    on the grout which will not only protect the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    Many a times it gets difficult to maintain the floor
    due to hectic working schedules. Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning
    services to our clients at a very affordable price.
    Moreover the price depends on the type of the
    tiles, number of tiles and size of the tiles to be cleaned.

    Following steps are followed for the tile and grout cleaning after you contact
    us-

    Pre inspection of the tiles and floor.
    Shifting of the furniture, if any, from that space.
    Dry Sweeping of the surface
    Application of the suitable cleaning solution.
    Cleaning the surface with a soft pad.
    High pressure cleaning
    Mopping and drying the surface.

    We have our experts who carry special tools to do the tile and
    grout cleaning; the grout sealing is also done if ordered.
