Tile and grout go together to form the great surfaces you find in your bathrooms, kitchen, and anywhere else throughout your home or office. While tile itself is relatively easy to maintain, keeping grout clean and clear of debris is another challenge altogether. To enhance the appearance of your tile and have it look like new, it’s recommended to have your grout cleaned ever so often so that it can match the sparkling shine of the tiles as well.
Tile cleaning is the process of removing dirt and shining your tiles. Depending on what type of tiles you have can also depend on the cleaning service approach we take to clean them. For standard, tiled areas such as bathroom floors, showers, kitchens, and even outdoor spaces, tile cleaning can be done mopping and wiping the tiles’ surface to remove dust and debris. Most tiles in these areas are treated with a glossy finish that makes keeping them clean easier than ever. If your tile is not treated with a glossy finish but rather has a semi-gloss or matte finish, our cleaning services can still keep them clean and help maintain their appearance.
Grout cleaning is done by thoroughly cleaning and whitening the grout that holds together your tiled surface. Grout is similar to a concrete, mortar substance that is porous, meaning that dust and debris can easily accumulate and linger in the holes or ridges of the grout. Other staining substances like colored food or liquids can also fall into the crevices of the grout, making it hard to remove them entirely with standard cleaning tools and solutions. Using our specialty cleaning tools, we’re able to get into the grout and remove all debris, while also whitening the grout to give your tiles and flooring a brighter appearance.
At-home Cleaning Tips
Some at-home cleaning tips that we can offer for keeping your tile and grout in pristine condition includes using approved cleaning solutions for tiles that won’t streak or alter the color of the tiles themselves. For most cleaning tasks, you can even use warm water and a cloth to clear off the surface of the tiles. If you notice debris building up in the crevices of your grout, we also recommend using a fine toothbrush to scrub away any debris that the cloth or mop is unable to reach. Be careful not to over-scrub, as this could actually damage the grout rather than clean its surface.
If you want to increase your floor’s longevity, we suggest having your tile and grout cleaned annually or bi-annually by professionals. This will allow you to enjoy your grout and tile for longer and keep it look refreshed after several years of use. Tile and grout cleanings are also significantly cheaper than having your tile and grout replaced year after year, so we encourage you to consider a professional cleaning schedule before replacing. You’ll instantly notice a difference in the appearance and lifespan of your tile and grout. Find out much more details about us.
