I own several pizza restaurants with tile floors throughout the entire building. Each restaurant is roughly 1,500 SF. As you can imagine, the tile and grout become nasty over time as grease and other grime are introduced.
I’m ready to purchase either a power washer or a steam cleaner to help ease the cleaning process, and I have no idea where to begin. I know I need hot water, whether via a power washer or steam cleaner and that I don’t need much PSI. Each of my stores runs on a natural gas hot water heater (typically Rinnai) that can easily heat water to 145 - 160 degrees.
I estimate that I’ll deep clean the floors maybe 3 times a year (w/ 5 stores, around 15 uses a year). I’ve researched hot water power washers, but most of them come with a boiler, weigh a ton, and cost a ton. While I’m NOT taking the cheap route, I don’t know that I need a pressure washer with a boiler. My thought was that I would direct connect either a pressure washer or steamer to my store’s hot water supply. Finally, I need something that’s somewhat portable. I don’t have a trailer or truck where the machine can be mounted.
Although the tile needs cleaning, the grout is the worst. Can anyone suggest a steam cleaner or power washer (that can accept hot water) that could help me? Thanks for your help
