TILE AND GROUT CLEANING

You can sit on that dirty tile floor and scrub all day, but no matter how long you spend mopping and scrubbing, you’ll only be half finished; the floor will never be clean until you get a good grout cleaning job done on the grout joints. Grout cleaning is the toughest part of cleaning any tile floor, whether you have Mexican tile, slate, ceramic, travertine, granite, porcelain, or terrazzo getting that grout clean, this is because the dirt in there is usually untouched by mops and household scrubber vacuums.

TILE and GROUT CLEANING PROCESS

  • Pre-Cleaning Inspection. During this step, we evaluate the condition of your floor and note cosmetic deficiencies. The most common are cracked tiles, missing grout, dark spots, bubbled grout, discolorations, etc that most often do not show up until the cleaning is completed.

  • Choosing the best treatment for the particular tiles. To begin the tile cleaning process, our experts will pre-treat the tiles with a proper cleaning agent for that particular tile. This treatment emulsifies the oils and greases on the tiled floor to prepare it for cleaning and extraction.

  • Additional work. Scrub heavy soiled parts using a nylon tile brush to break up stubborn substances and force them to release from tile and grout.

  • Steam cleaning. ProTouch then uses a turbo hard surface tool that is attached to our truck mounted extractor and extracts the dirt, grease, and other dirt particles back to our truck. During the cleaning, tile and grout are completely rinsed to remove any unwanted solution.

HAVE QUESTIONS?

We use “hot water extraction” method, also known as “steam cleaning” with a special tile tool. This process is used by 96% of all tile and grout cleaning companies across the country. Most major carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction as the preferred method of cleaning.

Usually tile and grout areas at you home are high traffic areas, that’s why we recommend to clean it every one to two years.

Usually, it takes anywhere between 1-2 hours for the tile to completely dry, depending on the aforementioned variables. Using fans in any rooms cleaned and turning your air conditioning or heating system on, depending on the time of year, can help accelerate drying time.

We accept cash, check, and major credit cards. There is 3% charge of your total for using cards.

It is not necessary that you be home while your tile is cleaned because we have thoroughly trained professionals whom you can trust. In order to provide the best possible service, we recommend that someone be home before we begin cleaning to discuss any specific areas of concern.
