Here is a picture of a cleaning job Reliable did. This particular job was ceramic tile. You can see all the soil being flushed out. Even with correct interim maintenance your floors will need a good professional deep cleaning. On this tile and grout cleaning in Belleville, IL we pre-treated the tile and grout and then used some agitation on the grout lines. We then followed up with a very hot water rinse. We use a special tool with two jets that spin in a circle under an enclosed dome. The angle of the jets and the spinning motion flushes all that soil out of the pores of the grout and rinses the tile clean from soil and any residue. All of this dirty water is extracted and contained under a dome. This way there is no splatter, no mess, just a sparkling clean floor.
Look closely at the edges of your floor or possibly in the corners. As long as dirty mop water has not seen these areas time and time again they should be close to the original color that your grout once was. Tile floors add beauty to your home and are very durable. Just like everything else they do require professional maintenance from time to time. With just a little care these floors will give you many years of service.
What do you not want to do to your tile floors?
Never put wax or similar products on ceramic and porcelain tile and grout floors. Those products are not correct for these types of tile. And are certainly one of the most horrible things you can do to your grout lines. These will leave you with a splotchy, bad appearance that is usually more work and difficult to remove. Another important tip is to not seal grout that is not clean. The adhesion of the sealer wont be as good and if it is you just created a barrier between any cleaning being done and the soil below. When your floors are in need of professional cleaning leave it to the experts at Reliable Carpet, Upholstery, Tile & Grout Cleaning in Belleville, IL.
