Maintaining grout lines is probably one
of the biggest challenges faced by general cleaning firms. You need to keep the lines clean and clear of
debris and in their original color. Customers don’t want to hear about extra charges for bringing
in the Turbo Power steam cleaners or grout scrubbing machines, they expect you to maintain these floors and grout lines without
additional costs to them.
The answer is at hand and it’s affordable
too! Announcing the Dual Tool, a brush attachment for your mop that does an effective job of maintaining
grout lines between machine scrubbings.
We tested these tools on a variety of floors and
in a number of different environments from greasy kitchens, oily industrial floors, cafeteria’s with high volume and
of course restrooms and locker rooms not only in commercial offices but industrial sites as well.
Performance review: Outstanding for quickly agitating
the grout lines, loosening embedded soils and allowing the mop or wet vacuum to quickly remove the dirt.
Operational notes: We noticed no significant improvement or asset
to using these on regular VCT flooring or terrazzo without grout. Also not recommended for use with regular
string mops, use mop heads with the looped ends. The strings on open ended mop heads tend to get caught on the brush when
rinsing the mop in the bucket.
Once you get the hang of placing them in the wringer
while attached to the mop these tools are fantastic! It took us a couple of attempts to get the right knack
for putting them in the wringer and getting the wringer to squeeze out the mop head effectively but once that was accomplished
the cleaning went smoothly.
