If you plan to hire a tile and grout cleaning company for your ceramic tile flooring, it is a good idea to find out how the cleaning process works. Even if you mop and sweep your floors daily, over time you will need a professional to give it a deep cleaning. Here is what is involved in the cleaning of ceramic tile flooring and grout.
One thing a professional tile cleaner would do is strip sealant off your ceramic tile floors if necessary. Sometimes your old sealant looks dirty and dull, and it is time to apply new sealant. Most tile cleaning companies offer a variety of sealant colors and finishes that would match the style and color of your ceramic tiles.
When you hire a professional to do ceramic tile cleaning, he might use a machine scrubber. This ensures that your ceramic tile is thoroughly clean and that it is clear of excess soils and tiny particles. The professional might also use a wet/dry vacuum for the purpose of further eliminating any dirt or small debris from your ceramic tile flooring.
Agitation is also part of the tile and grout cleaning process. Some professional cleaners do this manually with a scrub brush but other companies use machines to do it as it reduces damage and scratches to your ceramic tile flooring.
Professionals are also aware of the main parts of your home that have ceramic tile flooring and that require the most frequent cleaning. These areas include the entryway, hallway, kitchen and the bathroom.
In conclusion, professional tile cleaning companies have the years and expertise in making your home look fabulous. Before you hire a company, ask for references and find out which methods they will use to clean your ceramic tile flooring and grout. Also read your contract thoroughly before signing it.
