Raimondi Pedalo Large Floor Washboy Kit
The ‘Pedalo Large Washboy Kit’ by trusted tilers brand Raimondi is the ultimate tool for cleaning paving grout from patios, or tiling grouts from floors or walls. The grout sponge has a long handle which enables you to work comfortably and efficiently in a completely upright position at all times, saving your knees and back, whilst the pedal action on the bucket eases and speeds the squeezing action of the sponge to remove excess grout fines and water. The sponge float and handle has an ergonomic design that will reach into the tightest areas, whilst the huge 40 litre high capacity tank reduces the need for frequent water changes.
To remove paving grout from a patio or tiling grout from floors or walls, we recommend two washes; an initial rough wash and a further final clean-up wash to remove the remnants of the grout off the area.
On the first rough wash with the Pedalo Large Floor Washboy you simply and gently pull the sponge diagonally across the area, emulsifying the grout and cleaning the sponge as you go using the foot pedal to squeeze the excess water and grout off. We advise changing the water in the Pedalo once every 20 square mtrs.
On the second wash, you let the sponge do the work, adding ‘zero pressure’ onto the handle & sponge (the sponge has intricate cuts in it to assist the removal of the grout). You just simply move the sponge and handle diagonally and slowly removing the grout from the tiles as you go, revealing clean flags or tiles!
What is a Pedalo Washboy?
Traditionally grout cleaning tools for tiles or slabs, comprised of a simple bucket and a large sponge, that were used to clean up grout that has been pointed into tile joints. The development of wash-boys & pedalos have completely revolutionised grouting, saving tilers and landscapers time and money, enabling them to complete projects faster and more efficiently. What’s more, because of the ergonomic stand up design of the plastic float with sponge, and the pedal and rollers attached to the bucket, there is also no longer any need to get hands wet and dirty, ensuring a cleaner job all round.
Simply put, a wash-boy allows a tiler to increase their speed when grouting and ensures that a perfect clean up is achieved.
