So what is a grout?

Grout is the material that fills the spaces in-between the tiles. Because it is porous material, dirt and spills are attracted to it. Spills from drinks and even dirty water can penetrate into the pores of the grout. Then this dirt and grime make the grout look dull and dirty.

One of the most common ways that grout gets dirty is with the use of a dirty mop. As you use the mop to clean the tiles, the dirty water from the mop penetrates into the grout. This is a very common problem on kitchen tiles where fat molecules from your cooking end up on the floor. Then you either rub it into the grout as you walk on it or spread it into the grout as you clean the tiles.

So when you think you are cleaning your tiles, you are actually making the problem worse. This dirt and grime trapped in the grout can also cause mould, mildew and bacteria to form in the dirty grout lines. As your grout stains from the dirt build up, spilt drinks, dirty mops and general foot traffic this staining in the grout is very hard to remove without the proper equipment.

Some people try to clean the grout lines by getting down on their hands and knees and scrubbing the grout with a toothbrush, or scrubbing brush. To me that sounds like a lot of hard work, why not leave it to the professionals who use the right equipment and methods to do this job for you and save you the sore back and knees.

Let the professional tile and grout cleaner do it!

  • A professional tile and grout cleaning company first inspects the area for tile identification and clean any dry dirt from the area.
  • Next a solution is applied to the area and scrubbed into the tiles and grout to loosen the dirt from deep in the pours. A powerful rotating cleaning wand is then used to blast away the dirt and grime from your tiles and grout using extremely hot water. As the wand rotates over the tiles it sucks the dirty water back into the machine leaving the tiles and grout almost walk on dry.
  • At the end of this process, a sealant can be applied at the request of the customer at an added expense. This sealant is mopped onto the cleaned area and once dried helps protect the tiles and grout from dirt and grime getting back into the pours and re-staining the area. This sealant also helps keep the area looking cleaner for longer.
