Step 1: Sweeping and dry vacuuming Consistent sweeping is integral to maintaining your floor. If loose dirt is left on the floor for an extended period of time it can embed itself into the pores of the grout. This makes it harder to remove and causes unsightly stains. Vacuuming and sweeping at least 3 times a week will make grout maintenance much easier. As with most things in life; a proactive approach is usually the best course of action.
Step 2: Choose the right cleaning solution A neutral floor cleaner will keep your floor clean without harsh effects. There are many products available that work well without relying on harsh chemicals to keep your floor clean. Using harsh products, like bleach, can damage your tile and grout. They may also leave residue on the tile face and in the grout lines that will attract soil. Your natural reaction is to use more product for more cleaning power which will only cause more damage. Removing this residue professionally can be time consuming and require restoration of your tile and grout which is more expensive than traditional maintenance cleanings.
Step 3: Look for damaged tile and grout Cracked tiles or missing grout can become a serious problem. Many people neglect to properly inspect their tile and grout on a regular basis. Cracks and missing grout allow dirt to travel deep down and even underneath the tile face and the grout. When you clean your tile, the deep soil becomes wet and as the floor dries it makes it way to the surface. This can cause the floor to look dirty and blotchy, even after a thorough cleaning. A small amount of damage can lead to big problems later. It is best monitor the condition of your floor closely and fix any problems as soon as you learn of them.
We offer a comprehensive service that can extend the life of your floor. Our intensive method uses very hot water and pressure to loosen dirt and soil from deep within the tile and grout pores. The heat is great for sanitizing and removing stubborn grease and oils from the floor. This will extend the life of your tile and grout floor. Our cleaning process also removes residues leaving you nothing but a fresh, clean, sparkling, floor.
Part of our process for natural tile is sealing the whole tile face and the grout with an protective sealer. The sealer penetrates the tile and grout and creates a layer of protection that makes liquids and dirt difficult to absorb into the tile. Natural tile is more susceptible to soiling and staining so we highly recommend having it applied. Man-made tile such as ceramic and porcelain do not require that the tile face be sealed as they come with a protective glaze to stop soil from getting through the tile face. However, grout is a cement mixture that is extremely porous and can still be damaged by liquids and dirt. We can apply our grout sealant to your grout lines to make maintenance and future cleanings a breeze.
We understand the want to protect your tile and grout but we urge you to do it properly. Topical coatings such as wax degrade over time and often yellow in high traffic areas. Wax and other topical coatings are at times difficult to remove and require us to strip the floor which is very time consuming. Wax is meant to be used on floors such as vinyl composite tile(VCT) for protection and shine. In our professional opinion with over 20 years of knowledge and experience, wax does not belong on tile and grout for any reason. The expensive of removal and maintenance of wax on tile and grout far outweigh and advantages of protection it may bring.Tile and grout maintenance may be an involved process but it is not impossible.
