While cleaning the after a flood you must make sure that there are no documents present on the floor. As these documents can be really important. If you hired a company to do the restoration work the you can ask them to do document restoration as well.

According to the type of the flooring, you can apply different kind of cleaning solutions. You can use home made cleaning solutions. Hiring cleaning experts would be better for you.

Cleaning a tiled floor is much easier than maintaining hardwood or carpeted floors. In fact, ceramic and porcelain tiles require the least maintenance of almost any kind of flooring. For daily (or every other day) cleaning, it is recommended that you simply use a bucket of warm water and a mop.
If you find that a simple water treatment is not sufficiently cleaning tough stains or high-traffic areas, there are many chemical options that can be used as tiled flooring detergents.
If sanitation and health is a pressing concern, you may choose to use a solution of bleach or another disinfecting cleanser. When using a sanitizing cleanser on tiled floors, be sure the solution is not too strong. Read the label on the product and add an additional gallon of water to be sure the solution is thoroughly diluted.
If the grout is substantially dirtier than the tile, a strong cleaning solution may be required. It is safe to use undiluted floor chemicals on tile grout. Apply the cleanser to a small brush or rag and scrub vigorously until the grout is cleaned.

I know very well floor cleaning is difficult and little time consuming. I think you vacuum it every evening, and wipe up spills right away and apply the vinegar solution to the floor with your wet mop, and allow to dry.

White vinegar is best choice - just natural. The bad moment is the smell but worth it !

All the best to your cleaning business. (It's been 6 years, if it's still going strong then good job!)

I'd like to recommend this rule of thumb for your when cleaning anything:

Acids and Bases.

For inorganic stains (mineral deposits, scales and soap scum), I'd advise you use acid cleaners which will do the trick.
For organic stains (food stains, molds, grease or anything else which came from something that is or was alive), use basic or alkaline cleaners.

For combination ones (rust with molds or something like that), use both cleaners but try the alkaline or basic first before the acids since the latter is very abrasive and can corrode your surfaces.

Anyways cheers to you and hoping for the best on your business!

Stay clean!

Diluted muriatic acid is the best solution to remove tough stains from tiles.
