I recommend investing your budget with the good quality of cleaning solutions and cleaning equipment. Don't go with the cheapest cleaning solution or cleaning equipment because this will just cost you more and not works well. I instead purchase a bit expensive but high quality cleaning solution and cleaning equiptment.

hoabantrang We usually clean hard or tile floor by fress water. Sometime use detergent to clean stain, dirty...
Firstly, use broom, vacuum to sweep and clean dust. Then use cloth or mop wipe floor with water. Finanly, turn on fan or use dry cloth wipe to dry floor.

steamprony Regularly vacuum your glazed tile floors to keep them clean. Clean your tiles with mild detergent and water by using a rag mop. While mopping, change the dirty water frequently. Make a paste of baking soda and water. Rub it on the stain and let it sit overnight, then scrub the stain in the morning with a stiff nylon brush.

alvinphill Some companies use harmful and harsh chemicals in their products, so don't use those products because they are not safe.

ericd I would say, study a bunch of tile cleaning sites and find out what services they offer. Then, go to youtube and watch videos of professionals cleaning tile to find out how they do it and what equipment they use. Im sure there are also pleanty of articles that tell you about cleaners and all that good stuff. Research is your best bet. Also, call a professional tile company and tell them that you are interested in doing the same thing and ask them for tips. Some people might turn you away but others will welcome you with open arms. Make sure you arent in the same competitive market as them though and they should help you.

You can get by with a portable. Don't concentrate on heat with a portable extractor, it wont keep up with tile and grout cleaning. Look for something with at a bare minimum of 800 psi. You can also get acceptable results with a 175 w/grit brush and a shop vac, but it is harder work and will take much longer.

I agree for the most part but adding vinegar to any solution makes it rather acidic. It could potentially damage tiles so I highly recommend knowing what kind of tile you are dealing with. Also, vinegar and baking soda cancels each other's cleaning prowess so mixing both isn't very smart.

I don't think tile cleaning is that costly put up but hardwood restoration can be rather tricky. I suggest you do in depth research and go into some training programs first before deciding what services you should offer as well as how competitive your prices should be.
