Tile And Grout Cleaning: Why You Should Hire A Professional

May 8, 2024

Cleaning your tile and grout may seem like an easy task, one that can easily be tackled using household chemicals and a little elbow grease, however, in order to do the job correctly and see the lasting effects, a professional cleaning will be required.

As a professional tile and grout cleaner in Colorado Springs, Hydro Clean has had the opportunity to serve our community by cleaning a wide range of tile types and locations. Ranging from scum-filled bathrooms to immaculate kitchens, each tile area and type has specific needs when it comes to cleaning. This is why we have trained our employees to understand the different types of tile and how to effectively clean them, providing you with a clean and appealing surface no matter where it is located.  

Tile and Grout Cleaning Equipment

Although you may be able to get some of the dirt and grime off of your tile surfaces, without the specialized tools designed to clean deep into the tile and grout, you will not be able to fully clean them. However, if you hire a professional tile and grout cleaner, they will have access to these specialized tools capable of cleaning beyond the surface. In addition to these tools, they will also be coupled with specialty solutions and expert cleaners. The solutions will assist in cleaning the surface, as well as the expert using their skills to address common problem areas and identify issues with the tile.

How To Remove Bacteria

On the surface of the tile, you may be able to observe visible bacteria such as mold or scum. A professional tile and grout cleaner will be able to use a combination of their skills, specialized solutions, and tools to remove this bacteria. If left untreated, the bacteria can spread quickly and it can have an adverse effect on your health. Mold, specifically, thrives in damp and dark climates, and releases unwanted gases that are harmful to breathe.

Extend Tile And Grout Lifespan

If tile and grout are properly taken care of, they can last a lifetime. However, if they are not, the bacteria and mold can begin to eat away at them, breaking down their structure. This can be catastrophic, especially in a shower. If not addressed, the tile and grout can break down and no longer seal off the shower from the rest of the house. If tile and grout are properly taken care of and regularly cleaned, it can extend the life of the tile and the area where it lives.

Avoid Harmful Chemicals

Cleaning tile seems as if it can be a do-it-yourself-activity, however, in most cases, general household products are not strong enough or concentrated enough to effectively kill the mold and bacteria. Consequently, DIY’ers are forced to use more harsh chemicals. Many harsh chemicals can be harmful to have in your home. Chemicals can have lasting effects after going down the drain, and can also put children and pets in danger. Oftentimes, the chemicals and their fumes are dangerous if you get them on your skin or breathe them in. As for our pets, when we use harsh chemicals on our tile floors, they will eventually walk on them which can cause irritation in their paws. Additionally, dogs and cats commonly lick their paws, meaning that they could ingest the harsh chemicals from the floor.

Professional Tile and Grout Cleaner

Because professional tile and grout cleaners have the right tools and skills for the job, they will be able to clean any tile surface without harmful chemicals. The tile cleaners will be able to restore your tile and grout surfaces to their former glory, making them shine new again.

Tile And Grout Sealant

Following a proper cleaning by a tile and grout cleaner, a protective sealant will be applied to the surface of the tile. This protective sealant will not only showcase the beauty of the tile in its clean and shiny state, but it will also protect the tile from more bacteria growth. Unfortunately, the sealant will not last forever. Regular cleaning and sealing will ensure that your tile stays clean and lasts forever. 

Clean Tile Means A Healthier Home

Now that your tile is clean and sealed you and your family can immediately see a difference in the appearance of the tile. Additionally, your home will be cleaner and healthier overall, because with the absence of the bacteria and mold, you will be less susceptible to illnesses and allergies.

Special Tile

When cleaning, tile experts are able to identify the tiles and grout material, thereby developing a plan on which chemicals and tools to use in order to protect the tile. This is rather important because tile is made from a variety of sensitive materials. For example, limestone is a specific type of stone that is sensitive to chemicals. If not cleaned with the proper solutions and concentrations, limestone can disintegrate and fall apart. Knowing the type of tile that you have and how it will react to certain chemicals is crucial to maintaining your surfaces.
