Because your needs don't stop at carpet and furniture cleaning, neither do our exceptional services. We can revive the look of tile and grout with our very high-pressure cleaning process. Unlike mopping, it removes stubborn dirt that lies deep in the pores of grout lines. Just like carpet, dirt builds up over time in tile and grout, dulling your tile's appearance and discoloring your grout. A thorough, professional tile and grout cleaning is the only way to remove the deep-down dirt. As with carpet, many factors must be considered when determining the frequency of cleaning. Foot traffic, children, pets, and routine floor maintenance will affect how often you need to have your tile and grout cleaned.
For an average size room (up to 300 square feet), it typically takes 30-60 minutes to clean the tile and grout. This can vary based on a number of factors, including the size of the tile, amount of soil in the grout lines, and room configuration. If you choose to have sealant added, it typically takes 2-3 hours to complete the entire process.
Grout is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Having a sealant applied will help create a protective barrier, giving you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout. The type of sealant you choose will determine the degree of stain resistance.
Clear sealant: Our professionals can apply a clear sealant to cleaned grout lines to help them resist dirt and spills before they can be absorbed, and protect grout between cleanings.
Color sealant: Color sealant also conceals stained or discolored grout lines, and can change the look of any office or residential space. Like clear sealant, it helps grout lines resist dirt and spills before they can be absorbed, and protects grout between cleanings.
We recommend you wait 30 minutes before walking on the floor to allow the sealant to dry. It will take 36-48 hours for the sealant to cure completely, so we suggest that you avoid any liquid coming in contact with the sealant during that time. To preserve the life of the sealant, we recommend that you use a neutral cleaner on your floor. Rinsing after mopping also will help keep your floors looking their best. You will want to avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners as these can wear away at the sealant and cause it to break down prematurely.
