Cleaning Brass Inlays On Tile Floor?

I clean a church and have a little dillema. The foyer has a very nice ceramic tiled floor with some brass inlayed strips. (I just found them a little bit ago because the last person didn't pay attention to them).


I've started cleaning them with an SOS pad... yep on my hands and knees. I have found that the 'grime' I'm taking off isn't very thick. Is there something anyone knows of that I can use. Maybe even something to spray on and then use a floor machine? The trouble with that is, the inlays are below the actual tile surface so I'm not sure that using a floor machine will work.

Are there any cleaning people out there that have experience with brass inlay on a floor? I thank you for any input.. or even ideas to keep me off my knees scrubbing all of them. Thank you so much!!

The best way is to use a buffing pad on the floor machine. That keeps the brass shiny.

i work on the altar guild. we use a lighter fluid to clean the brass candle covers. we spray pam on the bottoms so the wax doesnt stick, but i guess dirt woould stick to your floor.


i cant picture what you are talking about at all. how about brasso? that is something else we use to clean our big brass stuff.

Derek and Sandy, Thanks for the input from both. I have things to try lighter fluid on and I'm definitely going to start using Pam on some things!! Derek, I've seen your name on a few posts, are you a professional cleaner? I'm not sure if there is a way to have you contact me if you are so I'll leave the post here and see if you get it. Thanks.
