Tile and Grout Cleaning Tools

At Professional Surface Restoration, we use specialized cleaning equipment that combines several different processes, such as heat, high pressure, vacuum extraction, and emulsification to remove dirt from the toughest of spaces and keep your floors looking their best. To begin the process, we use a detergent to pre-spray your surface. Then we use high pressure multi jet rotating steam tool to continuously extract dirt and water from your floors.

After the floor surface is clean, we close the pores in your grout, which helps keep the dirt from penetrating again. Water based sealant is both safe and effective; it will not change the look of your tile or its longevity.

Why Schedule a Tile and Grout Cleaning?

Tile and grout cleaning is an essential aspect of keeping your floors sanitized. Over time, grout can get very dirty because it is naturally porous. If a contractor does not seal the grout correctly, it can happen sooner than it should. Grout absorbs bacteria, grease, mildew, dirt and other particles that are not only unpleasant to look at but can also affect the indoor air quality of your home. Left unchecked, it can begin to emit a foul odor.

Regular tile and grout cleanings help control odor, fight bacteria, and keep your tile and grout looking new. But how often should you schedule cleanings? The answer will depend on the amount of time you spend in the space. Higher traffic floors, like a kitchen, will require more frequent cleanings than a less used room. In general, plan for a good professional cleaning every 2 to 5 years.
