Grout lines are porous like sponges. They absorb liquids, dirt, mildew, bacteria, cleaning chemical residue and other contaminants. The most common cause for discolored grout is mopping. When you mop, you are using clean water the first time you put the mop into the water. Every time after that, the mop goes into water that is not clean, therefore you are now mopping with dirty water. If the liquid is clear, the grout will return to the original color when it dries. If the liquid is dark or deep colored such as coffee, tea, or red wine or Kool-Aid the grout will be stained. The longer the liquid sits, the deeper into the grout it will go and become permanent.
We clean with a high pressure water and vacuum system which is great for removing embedded dirt, food, cleaning residue, etc. However, stains can be difficult if not impossible to be removed and therefore we can’t guarantee they will come out. We recommend sealing all tile & grout after cleaning.
There are several types of hard floor surfaces we are equipped to service. The most common is ceramic or porcelain. However, we are also equipped to service travertine, limestone, marble, slate and blue stone.
We price tile & grout cleaning by the sq ft. The prices starts @ $0.75 per sq ft. The prices per sq ft depends on type of tile & the condition it is in. Sealer rates vary based on market cost. Call us we usually have a special to offer.
