The professionals offering residential construction cleaning in Melbourne would use a hoover to clean up all the dirt and dust. Once done they will then scrape any remaining primer or grout using a towel. While doing so they will make sure that the coating is not harmed during the cleansing. Here is a short list of things that they will use to clean the different areas of the tiles.

Glue – They will clean glue from the surface of the tiles and other unwanted areas using a cloth that is drenched in Ammonia.

Surface – They will use dilute vinegar or vegetable oil to cleanse the surface of the tiles and maximise its sheen. They would never use metal brush, but may use a steam cleaner and melamine sponge as alternatives.

Also, they will clean the tile surface and strip between the tiles, the post construction cleaners in Melbourne may use non-abrasive powder along with a soft bristle.
