When people tell you how much they dread cleaning their tile floor in the kitchen, what they’re really hating is cleaning the grout, the tiles are easy to clean. Cleaning the grout yourself involves getting down on your hands and knees, then scrubbing with some kind of strong cleaning solution and a stiff brush for hours on end. Then, you wait for it to dry and you’ll see other imperfections that need to be taken care of as well. That can be just downright depressing. If the depression of cleaning your own grout has got you down, then you should probably consider hiring some professionals to come do the job for you, while you watch and enjoy a glass of wine.
The biggest advantage that a professional tile and grout cleaning company has over the average homeowner, is that they have tools that can do the work of three people without ever having to get down on their hands and knees. They have a machine that runs on electricity, that physically scrubs the grout lines between your tile better than any person could ever do. Then, there are high-powered extractor machines that can make quick work of eliminating all the dirt and cleaning chemicals for a super fast dry. Once you see how quick and easy the pros come clean your floor, you’ll never do it yourself again.
The next step, after the floor’s clean and dried, is to lay down some grout sealer that will make keeping the grout clean easier on a daily basis, and a lot easier when it comes for the high-intensity no holds barred professional job next time. The sealer will soak into the freshly cleaned grout and fill in all the pores and occupy them with sealant. The sealant will typically have a silicone additive that makes it extremely hard for dirt to stick to, thus making your daily cleanup a breeze for the next six months to a year.
As you can see, having the pros come do your tile floor is not only easier on you, but they do a better job, and when they seal your tile, they make your life easier on a day-to-day basis. Is it any wonder that most homeowners turn these kinds of jobs over to the professionals whenever possible?
