Don’t Neglect Your Tile and Grout

Nothing brings your beautiful Eau Claire home together like clean, fresh tile. If you are currently thinking a phrase along the lines of, “My tile really doesn’t look so clean, fresh, and inviting,” then it is probably time to call your local tile and grout cleaning company. Steamatic Restoration and Cleaning would be a perfect professional option.

More than just mopping

Though tile falls into the category of “hard floor”, it is somewhat porous and not impervious to dirt and grime. You won’t be able to catch the day to day changes as dirt imbeds itself into your tile, but over time the dirt will build up and give a dark, dirty look to your tile and grout. Though you as a consumer have control over how clean you prefer your home to be, it is highly recommended to get your tile and grout cleaned professionally every 6 months. It may be tempting to just rely on mopping or store bought chemicals for cleaning your tile, but these will be a waste of time and money. Mopping is a good way to clean, but will not be effective in targeting the soil and dirt packed into your tile and grout. These can only be loosened and cleaned with proper equipment used by the professionals. This equipment targets deep within the pores while using high water pressure to restore your tile and grout to its original level of beauty. Professionals use a cleaning process that is safe for multiple types of tile including ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, marble, granite, and more. You can be sure your tile is safe in the hands of professional cleaners as they are trained and skilled in what they do.

How can you tell if your tile is dirty?

Freshly cleaned tile will look glowing, white, and/or shiny. On the other hand, dirty tile looks darker, dull, and/or grimy. Sometimes it is easier to notice dirty grout over dirty tile, as tile can come in many colors and hides a dirty look better. Whether it is the tile in your shower, on your bathroom floor, on your kitchen floor, or outside, professionals will be able to take that darkened, dirty look, and give it a fresh, clean glow.

When Does a Cleaning Come in Handy?

“Sparkly clean” is the perfect look for any occasion. If you are hosting a party, having a few friends over for lunch, celebrating an anniversary, spring cleaning, looking for a way to refresh, or if you are getting ready to sell your home, tile and grout cleaning will add the perfect touch. Professionals will be at your service with their equipment, good customer service, and exquisite skills.

Upkeep of your tile floors will be an investment, but it is well worth taking care of. In the long run, it can save you money and give you satisfaction. By cleaning your tile floor, you will keep it in better condition and avoid having to replace your floors in the future.
