5 Things to Know About Cleaning Tile & Grout

I bet your tile floors looked awesome when you moved in that beautiful new home in Peoria or Phoenix Arizona West Valley home. As time goes by the accumulation or dirt, Arizona dust, kids and pets tracking in who knows what! Your tile and grout starts to look dull and dingy.

Even with regular cleaning your tile and grout will fade and build up dirt and grime over time. 

Depending on what floor cleaning products you are using you could be adding to the problem. Many over the counter cleaners can leave a wax or chemical buildup that only attracts more dirt and dust and makes the problem even worse.

It’s important to have your tile and grout professionally cleaned every year, even twice a year to keep your tile, grout, and carpets clean, fresh, and sanitized for a healthy home environment for your family in Peoria, Arizona.

5 Things to Maintain Your Tile & Grout

We compiled this list of 5 things you can do to help maintain your tile and grout in your Peoria or Phoenix Arizona home between professional tile and grout cleanings.

  1. Seal your grout. If you didn’t get your grout sealed when you bought the home, get it professionally cleaned then immediately seal the grout when it’s dried. Grout is porous and this will keep it from absorbing spills and dirt. You can even color seal, so if you have dark-colored grout and you want light-colored grout, we can color seal your grout which colors and seals the grout at the same time.  Tes, Allaman can color seal your grout for you as well. You can do it yourself but it is very tedious and can take a whole day. 
  2. When you mop your tile floor, keep your mop water clean. I know, sounds like a pain right? It is. But as soon a the bucket of water you are rinsing the mop in gets dirty, from that point on you’ll just be spreading the dirt around on your floors. So keep your rinse water clean!
  3. Go easy on the commercial over the counter tile and floor cleaners. Sure, you want your tile floor to be clean and sanitized.  Using products with bleach or harsh cleaners can erode the grout and cause more harm than good. There are natural solutions you can use, with hot water and add some vinegar and baking soda. For more porous floors like marble where the vinegar can be too harsh try a little peroxide in the water. The point is to avoid using waxy cleaners that will just build up and make your tile look worse.
  4. Clean Grout = Clean Tile Floors.   Grout is porous and attracts dirt and liquids can soak in. If you seal your grout correctly and regularly clean it, your floors will look clean. If you clean your grout periodically it will keep the overall look of the floors looking clean. Best way to do that in Peoria and the Phoenix West Valley? Call Allaman Carpet, Tile, and Grout Cleaning of course!
