What I hate about tile cleaning is having to scrub the grout lines with a hand brush. I mean the tapered brushes on a pole. I did one tonight where the tiles are 4 inches by 12 inches. Even on a small 10 x 15 area, that's a lot of scrubbing. I've tried crb's and 175's but can't seem to get into the deep grout lines. I turned down a job from a neighboring restaurant tonight because it just seemed like too much work. What works on grout lines besides a tapered brush. By the way, I love my old beat up turbo hybrid.

What I like about their brush is that it is tapered. They suggest that it gets deeper into the grout lines. I think it's worthwhile to try it out. I am turning down a lot of tile jobs just because I am already busy and they seem like a lot of work. If I can simplify it, I don't mind taking on some.

I dont do a lot of commercial tile but on restaurants I just use my single jet grout wand 1st then use the spinner no scrubbing

would depend on area of course

Like upholstery tile jobs take waaay too much time, but if one can mechanize it woohoo... we are definitely loving Mark Markovich's Turbo-Seal products... game changer.
