Is all Professional cleaning the same?

The simple answer is no. It can range widely from a mop and bucket, what I like to call a soil redistribution method, to a powerful, truck mounted machine using what is called a Turbo Hybrid utilizing hi-pressure steam spray inside a simultaneous vacuum recovery. The picture on the right was a polished marble floor that upon first glance didn't even look that dirty. After we started cleaning it was evident the marble floor had layer quite the layer of soil. Most of this was due to not using the right cleaning product, as the incorrect cleaners leave residues behind, some on purpose to give it a little shine; however they all will lead to rapid re-soiling.

Then there is also damage that may occur if you hire a company that does not specialize in stone cleaning and refinishing, such as in the pictures shown. The new owners of this home had hired another company to clean their travertine floors. The owner had to stop the technician half way through cleaning because what she was witnessing. Mind you this was a company touting 20 years’ experience. The tool they were using to clean the floor was leaving significant scratching. What is astonishing is the technician didn’t notice the damage he was doing. Clean Image of Orlando was hired to deep clean, refinish and repair the damage that was done. The old saying comes into play here, "it doesn’t matter how long you been doing it, it’s how long you been doing right".
The picture on the right is a travertine pool deck in the Windermere area we were called in to repair and refinish. The first step is always a deep clean. The difference was so dramatic we took a video of the cleaning so that we could show our customer the progress on the job. After showing him the video he informed us he had just had the pool deck pressure washed. Morale of story, all cleanings are not the same. It is the combination of the correct stone detergents, agitation, equipment and knowledge that consistently delivers the best results. Call 407-298-3132 for a free in home estimate.
Here is a picture of a downtown commercial building we cleaned with a flamed granite floor. What I want to show here is how detailed or effective the Turbo Hybrid Systems is at cleaning. With just a single pass, it completely removes 99% of all soil, as you can tell from my attempt to spell CLEAN. Mind you this is a flamed Granite floor, very textured , typically a difficult floor to clean, and with an estimated 10 years of commercial foot traffic and never been professionally cleaned like this.
Here is a close up of the damage caused from a "professional" using improper cleaning tool. The same tools you use to clean ceramic or porcelain may not work to clean Travertine, Marble or Limestone.
