newbie in cleaning

hi there,
i am really new in tile n grout cleaning.
using hybrid cleaning tools works great with my truckmount system.
however about 2cm area from the edge is not touch.
what is the best way to get the line off the edge clean. I meant really cleaned.

many thanks for the advice.

Hi Jim, Welcome!

I'm sure edge tools are available. If not, I would think some alkaline cleaner and a scrub brush would do the trick.

I also suggest hopping over to dirtygrout.com .

doitright,

You can use a grout brush on those edges. It is usually on a long stick with stiff nylon bristles on the end. Then just tilt your cleaning tool to spray rinse this area and you will be all good.

My guys and myself do this on about 4500 Sqft of tile a day and it seems to be the most efficient and thorough way.

Yeah, that could be a problem with mdf, and if it's not caulked,just wetvac it before it gets too soggy, i guess,i haven't had any issues, myself.
