Tile & Grout Cleaning
Grout sealing. Sealing your grout is essential for preventing stains, mold, and mildew. Grout is a very porous substance, and thus it absorbs liquids very easily. Grout should be resealed about every two years to ensure maximum protection or annually for grout that is subject to lots of water, such as in the shower.
Moldy grout. Though sealing your grout is an important precaution to take, it is not a completely foolproof method of preventing mold and mildew from forming, especially if the grout experiences a lot of moisture. Being diligent about cleaning regularly is necessary to avoid mold growth and grout and tile stains.
Steam cleaning. The most common, professional way to clean tile and grout is through a steam, or deep-extraction, method. This process utilizes high-pressure, heated water to separate the dirt from the surface, which will likely result in a dramatic improvement of the appearance of your tile and grout. Once the tile and grout have been thoroughly cleaned, they can be sealed or resealed.
