When it comes time to have your tile and grout cleaned there are a few things you need to consider. In this article we are going to go over them and explain why having your tile and grout professionally cleaned is the way to go in most cases.
Why Cleaning Your Tile And Grout YOURSELF Usually Doesn't End Up Well
Over the years we have seen many clients try to clean their tile and grout by themselves to only achieve very mediocre results, and there are a few reasons for this.
1. They do not have the knowledge on how to properly cleaning tile and grout.
2. They don't have the proper cleaning agents to get good results.
3. They don't have the proper tools to clean tile and grout the right way.
Let's Take A Look At These Three Problems
The Lack Of Knowledge - Tile and grout cleaning comes with a number of challenges and one of the main issues is knowing what type of tile and grout you are actually cleaning and how to clean that particular tile and grout. There are certainly different methods and tools used to clean all of the variations of tile and grout. And if you clean your particular tile and grout with the wrong cleaning agents or tools - especially with natural stone - you could easily end up ruining your tile.
The Proper Cleaning Agents - This also relates, partially to the first problem, but goes a bit further. Tile and grout can be extremely dirty, usually much dirtier than you think it is. Having the proper PROFESSIONAL cleaning agents is very important to getting good results. Also, knowing how to use the cleaning agents is also critical to a good end result.
The Proper Tools - You can have the knowledge and be using the proper cleaning agents but if you do not have the right tools you are not going to get good results. The bucket and mop method just does NOT cut it for getting top-notch tile and grout cleaning results.
Professionals use high quality PROFESSIONAL TILE AND GROUT CLEANING TOOLS. A bucket and mop doesn't come close to doing the job that the tools we use do. Take a look at the video below to see the results you can get with the proper knowledge, cleaning agents, and tools. *This video is NOT of our cleaning but an example of the tools that we use.*
There is no way a bucket and mop can do the job that these tools can do. One of the issues with mopping your tile and grout is that many times you are just forcing the soil into the grout lines. This is one reason why grout soils do fast. Once the soil is in the grout line it is really difficult to get out unless you are using the proper tools.
