Tile and Grout FAQ 2018-01-19T11:44:51+00:00

Q:Why is it important to clean tile?

Is It Iimportant to Clean
A: Tiles are usually found in places in the home where germs blossom. This includes the kitchen where food is spilled, the entryway where dirt can be tracked inside on shoes, and the bathroom (no explanation needed). If you don’t clean your floor properly, the pores in the grout can be the perfect place for bacteria to collect and grow.
And while it’s common to walk barefoot through these rooms, that’s a visual no one wants to imagine. Cleaning your tile professionally gets in deeper than DIY cleaning ever can and leaves you with a healthy, beautiful floor that you can be confidant walking on.

Q:Should my tile be cleaned often?

Tile Be Cleaned
A: The minimum should be at least one time a year. But there are some factors that could increase this number. For example, if you have infants and small children who crawl around on the floor, then your floor is going to get dirtier faster and you’ll want to keep it clean to keep the children healthy.
Grout that isn’t sealed will also need to be cleaned more often. And if you have older children who play sports like soccer and football, they’re likely to bring in more dirt than normal. If you fit these categories, we highly recommend two cleanings a year to keep the best conditions for your floor.

Q:What happens if I do not clean my tile?

Tile And Grout Cleaning
A: There are a few nasty possible results from not having your tile and grout cleaned professionally on a regular basis. The first and most obvious will be the discoloration caused by the grime that is building up. Sometimes, depending on where the grime is coming from, it can also start to smell. If you have infants and small children in the house, the dirt can
actually pose a health risk. The five second rule doesn’t exactly work if the pores in the tile have been collecting bacteria over years. It can actually make small children very sick. It’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your home and family.

Q: Should I Have My Grout Sealed?

Tile And Grout Cleaning Carson City
A: Most grout is made from a porous material that easily absorbs spills and dirt, much like carpet. A sealant is an easy and affordable way to maintain the appearance of your grout by creating a protective barrier. While sealant won’t create a water-tight seal, it does give you more time to wipe up spills and dirt before they penetrate into the grout.
Sealant is also effective at resisting stains from pets, cosmetics, cleaning products, and more.
