restaurant kitchen (heavy solid grease)

Any suggestions on how to get a good cleaning and grease removal in the grout lines.

I re-grout a lot of floors so usually I don't have to worry about the grease because I just remove it with the grout.

This restaurant wants me to re-grout where needed and clean the rest. (400 to 500 sq/ft)

I tried straight muratic acid, it improved it and melted my grout brush.

I do have a floor scrubber, but only a cold power-washer which I wouldn't be able to use in the kitchen.

Any chemical suggestions,
I have considered subbing it out to a carpet guy but I would rather do it my self

Thanks

I want to suggest you here about restaurant kitchen grout cleaning that you can use detergent to brighten your grout. There are also various formulas that you can use your grout lines cleaning like use 3 cup baking soda and 1 cup water mix them or apply it in between grout linings. So, this steps will helps you to clean your restaurant kitchen's grout cleaning.

Grease is acidic, you need an alkaline product to cut the grease. Sodium Hydroxide works well. It also is bad for the skin, eyes and throat. It will dissolve aluminum, strip paint and discolor other finishes. Or there are enzyme products that work well. They just take some time. http://www.eatoils.com/product.php?id=54 I have not used the product, but have talked to some who have had good results on grease around dumpsters and grease containers.
http://www.easycleansystems.com/ Mark does sell the product.
http://www.cleanandgreensolutions.com/ and Doug Rucker is a distributor http://www.cleanandgreensolutions.com/ . for a discussion on the use of the product, see ttp://www.powerwashnetwork.com/product-equipment-reviews/11226-eatoils-bt200.html

I have not tried that particular enzyme, but have tried a different brand. What I did use removed about 1/2 of the Chinese grease from a roof, with no damage to the roof membrane. I also used it on another roof, where it removed most of the grease and the enzyme also ate about 1/2 of a dead pigeon.

Tide floor powder works good and is great in combination with an enzyme product. But you will need a power washer or a truck mount with a turbo tool to really get them cleaned up.
