Also does the cleaning pie also apply to tile cleaning as well. I'm sure it does but in that same framework??
The cleaning pie applies to all cleaning.
Time
Temp
Chemistry
Mechanical Action (scrubbing, power rinsing etc)
Proceedures (method used)

If any piece of the pie is reduced, another piece must be increased.

For T&G I use GM, 5-10 minute dwell time.

Rarely preaggitate due to turbo spinner action @1200-1500 psi 150 degrees softened water.

Super soiled grout lines I will scrub with pole brush and reapply GM.

Prespray grout lines first, then mist entire floor prior to rinsing.

Detail edges with hand brush.

Flat mop the floor with microfiber to eliminate footprints and water spots.

Travertine I reduce psi to 800.

Any spots that remain I try using an acid cleaner. Sometimes they come out, sometimes they're stains or issues with the grout from installation.

I wish that was the only problem, he is not doing any dry passes also if you notice the second guy puts that lamp back on a wet surface without laying a sheet under it.

Lol not pre vacuumed too, what a crappy job. This is what I call a kijiji quality. I spoke to these guys over you tube and they told me that they are hitting 8-10 jobs a day.
I doubt that!!! 8-10 jobs a day....yea right!!! He could get better results pre scrubbing hands down. The way that dirt is not coming up I wonder if he even pre sprayed.

Fedri,
I feel the pre vac is so important!! Some think I already started cleaning just on vacuuming it.
Then I have hydroforce revolution now!! It lays down nice even coats of pre spray.
Then I get my oreck 175 and scrub over whole area.
After I start my vac with my wand and and rinse. I'm hoping robs rinse blows away.magic wands rinse!!

Beware the hydroforce revolution!!!!!
Swap out the adjustable block for a solid non adjustable one, it will let you down at the worst possible moment!!
Did you have that happen to you??? That's kinda strange as I tested it and measured. Its spot it!
I would think if it breaks the dial will not turn. Hmmmmm. Need to look at it closer!

Started having problems with mine
So bought another as back up
Straight out the box had problems with the back up....
Now they’re both standard and hassle free
Same advice I have seen given on here many times!

Painful too watch the never ending water being sprayed down.

Just as painful watch them throw the power cord on the floor with the lamp on top of the water,

This carpets are soaked.
