All about Professional Tile & Grout Cleaning
Grout is porous which means it soaks up moisture, including dirty mop water. This, over time, leads to unrecognizable, dark--sometimes black and unsavory--grout lines. If you have pets, grout isn't immune to their accidents and can soak up those odors no less than carpets can. Getting your grout back to its original color and smelling fresh and clean isn't rocket science, but it does take some elbow grease and some heavy duty equipment. As a professional tile and grout cleaner, we have that elbow grease and equipment. Below is our process.
Professional tile and grout cleaning process:
1) We lay down a fairly high PH chemical that breaks up dirt and oil.
2) We go over it with a rotary scrubber to agitate the chemical and scrub the tile.
3) We use a good old fashioned grout-scrub brush and get to work, manually scrubbing the lines (this is where the elbow grease comes in).
4) We use hot-water extraction (steam clean) to remove the chemical and all the dirt, oil, and discoloration from the tile and grout.
5) We place a residue remover/cleaner on the grout and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
6) We use hot-water extraction once again to remove the chemical and all residue, leaving the tile & grout "seal ready."
I never promise that a customer's grout will be like new, as grout, again, is porous and some more porous than others. But I am confident it will be CLOSE to new, and as good as it can possibly look once we complete these six steps.
