Nothing can be more frustrating to a home or business owner than to spend precious time cleaning tiles while the grout remains dirty. It does not matter how clean the tile is if the grout is not cleaned as well. Hiring a professional tile & grout cleaning company for grout cleaning will save people a great deal of time, and more important, money. Too often, people will try to clean the grout themselves.
However, there are many misconceptions about tile grout cleaning, and without the proper knowledge, one can end up harming their grout and tile. A perfect example of this is the thought that common vinegar and bleach are ideal for cleaning grout. This is a bad idea for several reasons. One is that working around bleach fumes can be harmful. Also, using bleach and vinegar on grout can ruin both the tile and the grout. Below are before and after images of our quality cleaning work.
A professional tile & grout cleaning company is going to do the job without causing any harm to the tile or the grout. There will not be any unpleasant chemical odors left behind, and the results are sure to stun both the customer, and the customer’s guests. The cost of hiring professionals is sure to outweigh the cost of doing the job one’s self.
A reputable tile & grout cleaning company will send out trained and certified professionals who will apply five steps toward the job of tile and grout cleaning. It is recommended that the customer opt for an optional sixth step, which is to apply pigmented grout-sealers to the finished job. While grout cleaning jobs are usually restricted to kitchens and bathrooms, the services may also be applied to patios, tile living rooms, and even the tile on fireplaces.
People often wonder why grout turns black. Dirt, of course, is one reason, but the main cause of black grouting is mildew. Mildew is usually black, and it thrives in areas that are damp. Tile is often in such areas, and that is why they seem to require so much attention. The dampness causes mildew to build up on the grout. If left unchecked, mildew will erode the grouting. This will mean that someone will have to be hired to do a re-grouting job. If this is not attended to, the situation will lead to broken tiles and another professional that needs to be hired.
Hiring a professional company for tile grout cleaning will ensure the home or business owner that they will not need to make any more phone calls regarding their tile or grouting. While there are few things less appealing than clean tile with filthy grouting, there are, indeed, few things more attractive in a home or business than clean tiles with sparkling grout.
