Having tile floors is a benefit for many reasons. Tile lasts longer than carpet and can hold up against stains and spills better. The appearance of tile can also offer a beautiful look to any home. Although there are some added maintenance requirements to keep under control when we are talking about tile, like chips or cracked tile. The good thing is that you can replace these individual tiles rather than the whole flooring like you would have to with carpet for instance. Keeping tile floors clean however can be a huge job, especially if there is a lot of tile flooring in your home. Are you trying to get your tile looking its very best? Tile cleaning can take a lot of time and on top of the tile, you also have to worry about the grout as well.
Grout is a small line that is used to seal all the tiles together and can be a magnet for dirt and grime. If dirt and grime sit for too long on grout or even the tile itself, it can begin to eat away and weaken these surfaces. This can lead to loose tiles that can be dangerous when you walk across them.
Do it Yourself Tile and Grout Cleaning
When you clean tile and grout yourself with products from the store your floor can seem clean when you’re done … if you ever finish! The amount of time that is needed to thoroughly clean tile and grout can be extreme. You have to have time where kids and pets are not running through and usually you have to get down on your hands and knees with a specialized brush to get the grout clean, especially if you have a lighter color. When you mop you are pushing the dirt and water into the grout lines that are most likely being left there. Once you manage the grout cleaning you still need time to clean the actual tiles and it has to be done without pushing more dirty water and debris back on the grout.
