For those of you not using glides.....
 
Sometimes "scratching" the tile that is adjacent to the carpet you are cleaning leaves marks.  These marks can be quite painful if your client spots them.  Try toothpaste, and a lot of scrubbing, and you will usually get them off.  You can also use Bon Ami, comet or the like, with caution. 
 
Just thought I'd throw a bone...

Not sure that would work.  You need something abrasive to take the marks off.  The marks are from metal, they don't just wipe off, but then again I've never tried magic eraser.

I think it is called hard surface cleaning. with a glide you don't get those marks

Good point Doug. Get a glide Cleanaz, but first try a Magic Eraser. If it doesn't work, I'll send you the $2 for it

Wow, you guys are real helpful.  I don't use a glide on my wand, just on the Rx-20.  I am very particular when I clean, therefore I like to do all the edging with the wand without a glide, it gets closer to the edge.  Then I clean with the Rx-20 that does have glides.  So, with that being said, once in a while due to my anal ways I will catch the edge of the tile with my wand.  No one out-cleans me, not even close.  I was just trying to help others who are as particular as I am, or those who aren't very careful.
