Why Tile and Grout Cleaning Shouldn’t be a DIY Task

Crouched down on your fours and tried to scrub every inch of the flooring in your house, have you? Then, it’s about time you realised that tile and grout cleaning isn’t a DIY task meant for the average dweller.

Why Tile and Grout Cleaning Shouldn’t be a DIY Task

Crouched down on your fours and tried to scrub every inch of the flooring in your house, have you? Then, it’s about time you realised that tile and grout cleaning isn’t a DIY task meant for the average dweller.

Porous Grout Requires Deep Cleaning

Penetrable (owing to a cement base) and sticky (due to the presence of polymer and/or latex enhancers), the grout found between your tiles is ever susceptible to the collection of dust, mud and liquids. 

These impurities, over a period of time, build into grime or oily filth that wouldn’t budge but for a thorough washing by Just Clean Stone & Tile Care, a reputed tile and grout cleaning company in Cheshire.

Incompetence Results in Ineffective Work and Floor Damage

While periodic maintenance by a dab hand in tile and grout cleaning, Cheshire help your tiles retain their colour and shine, a self-clean proves counterproductive because of:

  • Your limited knowledge of the type of flooring, cleaning equipment, products and technique.
  • Your lack of training and experience

You can’t expect to clear out the well-hidden residues in your grout with mere deck swabs and elbow grease following the instructions provided in a YouTube video. You can at best achieve a redistribution of muck, that too after spending many hours of your invaluable time crawling all over the place putting a severe strain on your back.

What’s worse is that your use of inappropriate apparatus and cleaning agents is the main contributor to an unsightly and scratched surface full of smears.

When you work with Lysol, Mr. Clean, or Clorox, you expose your tile and grout to harmful chemicals that cause permanent discolouration, indentation and disintegration.

Your amateur handling of the rinse, too, leaves behind a sticky layer of the chemical that attracts more dirt than grout per se!

What Professionals Do

A professional tile and grout cleaning service in Cheshire will:

  • Assess the type of tile and grout. (Tiles include those made from terracotta, limestone, porcelain, marble, ceramic, slate or granite; whereas grout is of the sanded or unsanded variety.)
  • Clean with alkaline products that are safe for indoor use.
  • Employ industry grade machines.
  • Use a combination of high-pressure steam and vacuum for efficient washing.
  • Apply grout sealer to protect your floor against future contamination of all kind.
