Tile & Grout Cleaning
There are two ways to clean tile and grout. You can get on your hands and knees using harsh chemicals and several stiff bristle brushes …or give us a call.
Tile now days comes in all sorts of shapes, sizes and so we separate them in two groups. Synthetic or manmade and Natural Stone like marble.
Synthetic tiles come in Porcelain or Ceramic.
Porcelain used mostly in bathrooms especially in showers.
Depending on the hardness of you local water you will notice that watermarks for minerals in your water. These marks can be difficult if not impossible to get off on your own. We use safe descaling cleaners to gently break up years of built up soap scum, minerals
Ceramic most commonly used in kitchens this "made-made" tile is very durable and very difficult to damage. Over time, mold, mildew and dirt take residence in the porous surfaces of your tile, stone & grout. Our cleaning solution penetrates deep inside these pores removing bacteria and other micro-organisms.
Grout is a porous material and it collects dirt, grime and spills, often discoloring the surface. If not properly sealed it can be permanently stained.
Stone - Slate, marble, granite, sateo
Q: Is It Important To Seal Grout Lines
A: Since grout is a porous material, it can easily absorb spills and other soils. Sealant creates a barrier that protects the grout from dirt, grime and spilled liquids. This gives you additional time to clean it up before it can become absorbed, making the grout much easier to keep clean.
Q: How Long Does Grout Take To Dry?
A: It is recommended to wait about 30 minutes before walking on a tile and grout floor, our solvent based sealers take 24-48 hours to completely cure, any spills will affect the grout lines staying clean.
Q: How Often should I have it cleaned?
A: Frequency will depend upon your use, cleaning products used, and overall maintenance between cleanings. Generally 12 to 24 months would be a good recommended maintenance schedule for a kitchen. However, everyone’s tolerance and cleaning habits are not the same.
