Stone, Tile & Grout Cleaning Service

Cleaning tile floors by hand is hard work. It’s messy, uncomfortable and impossible to get the deep-clean results that come with professional tile and grout cleaning.

This is because regular mopping will never reach the hidden dirt that lies deep within the pores of your grout lines. Grout is a porous material and it collects dirt, grime and spills, often discoloring the surface.

Our professional tile and grout cleaning service uses our proprietary hot water extraction cleaning method to clean out the hidden dirt and restore the luster to your floors. In addition, we’ll remove 96.5% allergens from your grout.

Clean ↗

When we clean tile and grout, we use a high-pressure water and vacuum system along with a cleaning solution that doesn’t leave a residue.

Seal ↗

Grout is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Applying a sealant creates a protective barrier, making it easier to clean spills on your grout before they soak in.

Maintain ↗

Avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners that might break down sealants around your tile and grout. 

Tips For Grout Cleaning ↗

  • Always vacuum and/or sweep before mopping to eliminate as much dry soil as possible.
  • Always rinse after you mop.
  • Avoid using bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners that might break down the grout and sealants.

Material We Clean ↗

HOW WE CLEAN GROUT AND TILE STEP BY STEP

STEP 1. INSPECTION

We inspect to determine the type of surface we are cleaning and to select the appropriate cleaning product. We also look for cracks or chips in the grout to bring to your attention.

STEP 2. MOVE FURNITURE

We move most furniture, although there will be extra charges for moving appliances and heavy furniture

STEP 3. “MAGIC SQUARE”

We will pre-clean one of the worst areas to determine that the results are what you expect. Most of the time the results are dramatic, however, if the grout was not sealed and is deeply stained no amount of cleaning will remove deeply set permanent stains.

Benefit: We would rather test a small area than spend hours only to find that the results were not up to your expectations. In some cases, there could be a minimum charge incurred.

STEP 4. PRE-CLEAN – (WASH STEP)

The appropriate cleaning agent is applied.

Benefit: Only safe nontoxic cleaning solutions are used, they will safely loosen, emulsify and suspend deeply embedded soils.

STEP 5. AGITATION

A special grout brush and machine are used to agitate the solution.

Benefit: This step further loosens ground-in soil.

STEP 6. DWELL TIME

The cleaning solutions are allowed ample time to work their magic.

Benefit: Allowing cleaning agents more time to penetrate deeper into porous grout and stone is the only way to completely loosen deeply embedded soil and stains.

STEP 7. EDGE/CORNER DETAILING

We have special tools designed to get into edges, corners and walls.

Benefit: Nothing is missed, difficult areas that may have been neglected are now cleaned.

STEP 8. CLEAN, RINSE & NEUTRALIZE

The cleaning solutions are allowed ample time to work their magic.

Benefit: Allowing cleaning agents more time to penetrate deeper into porous grout and stone is the only way to completely loosen deeply embedded soil and stains.

FAQS

How To Clean Grout And Tile?

When cleaning grout, avoid using bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners that might break down sealants. The best way to clean grout is using a natural grout cleaner.

We recommend mixing 1/2 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide, 1 tsp dish soap. Mix together the baking soda, hydrogen peroxide and dish soap. Spoon mixture onto grout, wait 10 minutes, scrub and rinse.
