Tiles are generally placed in wet areas such as laundry, bathrooms, kitchens, and eating-place. These areas are often high-traffic areas in damp and/or humid environment. Which creates a perfect breeding ground home to ever-growing and evolving mildew, mold, and even bacteria.
These can evolve into mold-based bacteria that can contribute to respiratory problems, and digestive issues if transferred into the body, and contribute to many more diseases that are common.
Therefore, here are the top three reasons for tile and grout cleaning.
ONE: Clean Tile and Grout is Better for Your Family’s Health
The tiles in your home and the grout surrounding each tile, inhabit a world of nasty bacteria brought in by dirt, grease, and stains. Regular bathroom cleaning may minimize surface dirt and germs, yet the dirt and germs are difficult to remove from the grout itself.
The porous nature of grout means that it easily collects bacteria and germs, making your floors unsanitary unless they get cleaned often and correctly. This increases health hazards, affecting those with respiratory problems, and allergies, and leaves the body open to many other problems. The dirt and germs trapped in the grout alone will emit odors and create unhealthy air quality, especially in wet and humid areas.
Professionally cleaned tile and grout are especially important if you have crawling babies or toddlers who play on the floor, or if anyone in your home has allergies, asthma, or respiratory issues. Keeping your tile and grout free of germs is an important part of any healthy home’s maintenance and cleaning plan.
TWO: Longevity and Appearance:
A deep professional clean will always enhance the appearance of the flooring and especially with a tiled surface. The dirt that gets trapped in the grout discolors the appearance and the reflection of the light is reduced, causing a dull look.
Having your tile floors and grout professionally cleaned on a regular basis will keep them looking fresh, bright, and new, which can make your entire home look and feel much nicer. If neglected, the dust, dirt, and other contaminants that stain tiles and grout can weaken the integrity of your floors.
They will begin to discolor, fade, crack, lose their luster and shine, and generally wear down much more quickly than they would if they had been cleaned on a regular basis. Since your floors will look much newer and fresher, you may be able to put off that costly tile floor replacement you have been thinking about
THREE: Save Time & Money:
When homeowners attempt to clean their tile and grout themselves, they will likely be disappointed by lackluster results, leading to attempts with increasingly harsh chemicals and cleaners that are more abrasive. Unfortunately, this can do lasting damage to your floors and grout.
A professional tile and grout clean will ensure a deep and sanitized finish and save you time on attempting a deep clean and indeed save you money without those over-marketed cleaning solutions.
Many seek a sealant for their tiled flooring, however, in our experience, this becomes quite costly and is prone to cracking, and can cause your tiles to appear patchy. Usually this results in the removal of the sealant, the tiles cleaned and then resealed again, and costs you much more.
To avoid this hassle and cost over time, it is best to book a regular professional tile & grout clean and stick to a weekly mop with some white vinegar, to maintain your tile and grout between cleans.
We recommend a professional tile and grout cleaning at least twice a year at a minimum for households. Professional cleaners have access to more effective cleaning tools and techniques that do an amazing job without causing any damage to your tile or grout.
