Have your tile floors, countertops or walls seen better days? Are they looking dingy and dirty? Many people avoid dealing with stained tile and grout because of the project’s difficulty level. Bring your tile and grout back to life with a professional tile and grout cleaning from Oakville and Burlington.
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. That’s because grout, which is a porous material, collects dirt, grime and spills, often discolouring the surface. Regular mopping and spot cleaning don’t reach the hidden dirt deep within your grout lines’ pores. It takes professional-grade equipment to get deep into pores and remove those unsightly stains.
When you walk into your home, is there a “funky” smell that doesn’t seem to go away? Your tile and grout could be the culprit! Like carpets, tile floors can lock in smells from shoes, feet, spilled food and drinks and even water that gets trapped during mopping. Our Oakville and Burlington professional tile and grout cleaning service restores the lustre to your floors, making them look like new.
If you are worried about the cost of hiring a professional cleaning from Oakville or Burlington, you’ll find that an expert tile and grout cleaning can save you money compared to what it would take to replace a floor – it will also save you tons of energy and headaches from doing it yourself. And if you are thinking of doing it yourself…. Read on!
Following the wrong tile and grout cleaning advice could end up costing you an arm and a leg. If your goal is to keep your tile and grout looking amazing for as long as possible, avoid the following advice that gets passed around on the Internet and elsewhere.
Cleaning Tile and Grout with Bleach is Fine
No! Bleach is a great cleaner for many things, but not your tile and grout. It’s known for its whitening effects and disinfecting capabilities, so people tend to use it on their tile and grout for this purpose. However, it will only weaken the grout, causing it to become brittle and deteriorate over time.
Acidic Cleaning Solutions Work Great on Tile and Grout
Acidic cleaners may help remove dirt and grime from tile, but they can be rather harsh, causing erosion of the grout and irreversible effects. Using the wrong chemicals can actually create build-up on your surface, making your floors filthier than they were from the beginning. It also releases vapours that can damage appliances like stainless steel faucets and similar fixtures.
Use a Wire Brush for Cleaning
Using a wire brush to clean your grout joints may seem like a great idea, but this will only damage it. The hardest brush you should be using is a medium bristle brush. Anything harder will create more problems than it solves.
Tile and Grout Cleaning is a DIY Job
Plenty of home “remedies” can be found on the web claiming that anyone can and should clean their own tile and grout.
So…the bottom line? Be careful of what you read on the Internet.
