The Word on Green

At Downey Clean we train our technicians to understand tile and grout.

Tile has become a very popular choice for homeowners that want a durable floor covering that will last for years.  We understand the market and train our technicians to be skilled in cleaning all types of tile surfaces.

Ceramic Tile - Glazed Ceramic Tile is comprised of two basic elements, clay and water. Various clays are mined, ground and blended to a fine powder, and pressed together to form the body of the tile. The pressed clay body is then dried to reduce the moisture content. Next, the surface of the tile is coated with a colored glaze (similar to glass). The glaze is then permanently fused to the surface of the tile by firing it in kilns at approximately 2000° Fahrenheit.

Glass Tile - Glass tiles are pieces of glass formed into consistent shapes.  Since the 1990’s a variety of modern glass tile technologies, including methods to take used glass and recreate it as ‘green’ tiles, has resulted in a resurgence of interest in glass tile as a floor and wall cladding. It is now commonly used in kitchens, spas and bathrooms.

Porcelain Tile - Porcelain tile is a type of ceramic made of a very fine mixture of clays and minerals similar to those found in fine dinnerware. These special clays allow porcelain tile to be fired at temperatures even higher than ceramic tile, typically exceeding 2,400 degrees (F). The higher temperature results in a very dense tile. And the denser a tile, the better it resists moisture.

Natural Stone Tile - Natural stone tile is made by mining and cutting large block of stone into small shapes that can be easily applied to floor and wall surfaces.  These tiles are available in many varieties like Slate, Travertine, Granite, Marble, Sandstone, Limestone, Quartzite.

Terra Cotta Tile - Is a clay baked unglazed ceramic tile.  The unglazed color after firing comes in many shades of orange, orange/red or brownish orange because of the high iron content in the clay.
