WHY GETTING YOUR TILE AND GROUT PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED IS SO IMPORTANT!

Aside from making your flooring or your outdoor patio look more presentable, there are numerous benefits to getting your tile and grout cleaned now that summer is here.

#1 You can avoid an unhygienic surface.

Over time, mold, mildew, bacteria, dirt and debris builds up on the surface of your tile and leaches deep into the grout between your tiling. Over time, these can become unhealthy irritants that can cause an unhygienic surface. This can not only put your health at risk but especially children or animals that may have weaker immune systems.

#2 Cleaning your Tile and Grout Daily Can Extend The Lifespan of Your Floor!

The dirt and contaminants that get trapped will gradually break down your grout over time. Getting a professional cleaning, will extend this grout over time and will prevent buildup. You can even go as far as sealing the grout to minimize the opportunities of dirt and grime from absorbing into your grout lines.

#3 It’s a great investment for Businesses!

If you own any kind of business with high foot traffic such as a grocery store or hotel, your grout will get dirty quickly if it hasn’t been properly sealed. If you own a restaurant it is very critical to get your tile and grout cleaned. The tiles on restaurant kitchen floors have a tendency to come loose and break apart because of the grease buildup and from the floors being wet from mopping. This is not only a hazard for employees who might trip on them, but it could cause serious problems to the sub floor which would require a lot of time, money, and work to repair.

#4 Cleaning it yourself can often be unsuccessful and hazardous.

In addition to using tools and cleaning solutions that won’t damage your tile surfaces or erode grout, professional grout and tile cleaners also ensure their products won’t harm people either. All too often homeowners attempt to use a cocktail of various solvents and cleaners to remove tough stains and bring their tile’s original shine back to life. However, combining cleaning chemicals together and applying them on surfaces they weren’t intended for can be a huge hazard; especially when acids and bleach are used.
