Tiles and Grout are among the most used type of flooring for a multitude of reasons including the different kinds and color options that there are. Just like carpet or concrete floors, tile floors still need to be cared for because of their porous nature.
Having tile and grout cleaned eliminates the mold and bacteria that can start to grow. Since the most common type of grout is cement which is a porous material it sometimes is hard to tell when it is dirty and needs to be cleaned unless it is a light color. The different kinds of tile that there are require different kinds of cleaners so trying to clean them yourself may be difficult or could ruin the life of your tile. With a professional, the life of the tile is extended and the bacteria and odors are extracted from the pores of the tile and grout.
When you hire a professional to clean your tile and grout they should have special cleaners and machines that are used to remove dirt and grime. Here at C.M. Cleaning, we use a Hydramaster truck mounted system which provides more power to clean with instead of portable machines. To prep the floors, we use viper venom acid wash which loosens soils and stains. The water is heated to 250 degrees Fahrenheit and can pressure wash the floor at 900 Psi (pounds per square inch). The Hydramaster truck mounted system lifts dirt out of the porous grout and tile, turning black grout lines back to their original color.
Grout Sealant can also act as a barrier between the grout and debris. The sealant can help prevent stains from settling, mold growing on grout, and mold and mildew from getting under the tiles. It can also help stop erosion of grout from moisture that meets it. If it is requested, this is also a service we can provide.
Professional tile and grout cleaning can help to keep your employees healthy and happy. People that work in messy or dirty spaces are more likely to feel moody or depressed at work. Plus, working in a dirty space increases the likelihood of your employees getting sick, especially where this this type of flooring is most used, which is bathrooms and cafeterias/kitchens.
