I like my 4 jet squeegee wand with wheels.


Don't worry, turn it to the floor and it will control the spray. Usually need less than 1,000 PSI to clean tile and grout and heat is not a necessity. 750 PSI is my starting range.

I prefer my motorized spinning tool that allows me to clean below 600 PSI for more delicate surfaces and stone. PSI dependent spinners need at least 600 PSI to operate.

Some grout scrubbing brushes and the proper cleaning solutions should get you there.

Here's the link. Gotta warn you, it comes with 3000 PSI valve as the price will reflect.
