by | Jul 5, 2021 | Cleaning Service, Tile and Grout Cleaning

Tile and grout add a finishing touch to homes and interior spaces, however, they attract a lot of dirt and can be a pain to clean. Over time, grout can look dirty due to continuous washing and mopping of floors improperly. 

So, how do professionals clean tile and grout?

The process of cleaning involved the following:


1. Vacuum

Vacuuming loosens up and removes any dry soil that may be present on your floor.


2. Mopping

Mopping removes any stains or set-in dirt from your floors. It’s important to change your mop water regularly. Remember to rinse after mopping to avoid streaking dirt.


3. Steam Cleaning

For this process, you will need a high-powered steam cleaner. A crevice attachment tool is great for those harder-to-reach areas. Start in a small area and gradually work around the creases of your tiles. This will remove all the dirt in between cracks and crevices. 

4. Drying

Drying your tiles after you’ve cleaned them is important. You may need to use multiple towels.


Hiring a professional


There are many advantages to hiring a professional tile and grout cleaning contractor. For one, scrubbing down large areas of tile and grout can take a long time and can be extremely tiring. 

Professional tile cleaning contractors use a high-pressure multi-jet rotating steam cleaning tool. This tool is hooked up to a truck-mounted steam cleaning machine. This machine with its specialized tools can effectively clean large areas of tile and grout in a relatively short period of time. 

No Mess No Fuss Cleaning 

The high-pressure multi-jet rotating steam cleaning tool causes no splashes or messes. The high-pressure steam is contained under a cleaning disk so there is no splash or overspray to worry about. A powerful vacuum hose extracts away dirt, grease, and grime along with excess cleaning agents used. 

In addition, professionals are able to sanitize your tiles and porous lines, both areas that are susceptible to mold, bacteria, and harmful pathogens. The high-pressure steam from the professional tools can get deep into the porous grout lines to kill the mold, bacteria, and other harmful pathogens.


If you decide to hire a professional to clean your tile and grout, there are some things to consider before hiring a professional.


1. Hire professionals that specialize in cleaning tile, grout, and stone. A carpet cleaning machine will not work to clean tile and grout.


2. Make sure they are fully licensed, insured, and bonded to the licensing standards required for your particular area. 

3. Make sure any potential tile cleaning contractors do an estimate first before coming out to clean your tile and grout.

4. Check reviews on Google.

5. Always make sure that the contractors do a tile cleaning sample while they are doing an estimate.
