Cleaning Grout The EATOILS(TM) Way

Grout can easily discolor with dirt & grime

Ceramic tiles and grout tend to get dirty very quickly and are one of the most challenging cleaning tasks in any facility. The buildup of dirt, grease and grime in grout is very unpleasant to look at because of the drastic color change that alters the appearance of floors and walls. The way most facilities accomplish this task is with brushes and harsh cleaning chemicals. Some of these harsh chemicals, however, will discolor the grout or will erode sections of it.

EATOILS™ SUPERFRESH™ and SUPER FLOOR DEGREASER™ are the safe alternative to harsh chemicals for grout cleaning.  These products can work wonders on grout without the consequences of using of harsh chemicals. These products can easily remove the dirt build-up and other organic materials that typically accumulates in tile grout over time.  In as little as 30 minutes you can  see a dramatic difference.  It's easy to do - just follow these steps: 1) mix the product - usually 2-4 oz. / gallon of warm water will do the trick, 2) wet the floor - soak it with up to 1/2 inch of the solution and allow it to sit for 30 minutes or so, 3) agitate the entire area with a soft bristle brush or power scrubber - and watch the ugly discoloration disappear! 4) then rinse or squeegee the surface to bring the tiles and grout back to 'like new' finish and color!

For heavily discolored areas or high traffic locations you can follow up with a steam vapor cleaner to quickly restore the grout to its original color. The high heat, low moisture and gentle pressure from the steam forces the dirt out of the grout and brings it to the surface where it is easily wiped away or extracted.  There are a number of high end and franchise restaurants that use this approach to clean up the kitchens of restaurants before transferring ownership where the objective is to have a 'brand new' kitchen for the new owner and . . . this is how they do it.

There are some exceptions where grout cleaners are not the solution. If the grout is sealed and the dirt and grime are beneath the sealer, neither EATOILS™ products nor steam will get the dirt out from under the sealing material. So, you will need to strip the seal then use our products to get the grime out, then re-seal.

Also, old, broken grout (where holes and cracks are visible) should not be cleaned with EATOILS™ products. Grout erosion is usually the result of a chemical reaction from the acidic cleaning agent that was previously used. In those cases the grout should be replaced, then cleaned with our EATOILS™ products.

Summer Brings Heat, Humidity, and Nasty Odors - Time For EATOILS(TM) SUPER CARPET-FRESH(TM) & SUPERFRESH(TM)

I'm so sorry!

Keep the smell under control!

With Summer's onset we all look forward to warm days, fun and a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather - however, it can also bring out the worst in odors from carpets and upholstery, mattresses, garbage containers, pet areas, bathrooms, etc.  Now is the time to address those odors with EATOILS™ SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ and SUPERFRESH™.

As temperatures go up so does microbial activity:  That causes unpleasant odors like - that old food/pet stain on the carpet,  the mattress, the dog's bed, food in the garbage bin, pet do-do in the litter box, urine on and around the toilet - all sources of odor are magnified as the bacteria that cause odors increase activity with heat and humidity.  Everything from a 'stuffy' smell that causes you to open up the house to allow in fresh air to a lingering smoke odor from the former residents, to full blown pet urine odor that you thought was removed from the carpet the last time it was cleaned - these are all a result of residual organic material that needs to be removed safely and effectively in order to bring your house back to the comfortable home you enjoy.

SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ for your carpets, upholstery, mattresses, bedding, etc.

Have you ever pulled up an old carpet?  Did you happen to look at the back side?  If you did, you would have been both disgusted and amazed at what you would have seen - every stain from the first day you installed it will be there . . . in technicolor!  Why is that, you ask?  Most traditional carpet cleaning products clean only the surface that you see - the top of the carpet.  They leave the residual stain below the surface and they do not address the backing of the carpet or the underlay - or the floor beneath. 

EATOILS™ SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ is different - when you use it on your carpet it goes down deep into the carpet fibres, through the backing, through the underlay, and even to the floor below to deep clean and remove all traces of dirt and debris from all surfaces; then it inoculates the area with billions of beneficial microbes, like tiny scrubbers, that keep on working for days, gobbling up the stain - and when they are done there is nothing left - no mark, no stain, no organic material to cause odors later - in fact, if you look at the back of a carpet a few days after it is cleaned by our product, you'll see that it looks like new!

So what does this mean for your other soft surfaces? You'll have virtually the same results - no residue . . . no sources of odors!

SUPERFRESH™ for all your hard surfaces - garbage bins, pet areas, pet litter, bathrooms, etc.

All surfaces have microscopic pores, cracks and crevices where organic material can remain undetected for years.  Traditional cleaning products rely on chemical reaction to remove dirt and debris from the surfaces, but they have no method for removing residual organic material from the pores.  On hard surfaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, tile and grout, cupboards, garbage cans, toilets, pet litter boxes, pet runs, exterior siding, washing machine, dishwasher, etc; you name it, SUPERFRESH™ will deep clean and deodorize with the same microbial cleaning action as our SUPER CARPET-FRESH™ uses - billions of tiny scrubbers that neutralize and remove all microscopic sources of odor.

If you come across an odor that offends - anything from smoke to skunk to urine to garbage to sweat to you name it, we probably have your answer with one of these products.  No matter which situation you encounter from the list above, all odors are removed safely and effectively with continuous, ongoing cleaning action.  In addition, all of our products are GREENER-CHOICE™ APPROVED GREEN.
