Tile and grout cleaning

Tile and other hard surface flooring is an important element in modern home design and décor. As well as ceramic tiles, designers are specifying granite, marble, slate and even concrete. All these surfaces are phenomenally tough, they will last for many years but, even though they might appear easy to clean and maintain they are not. Dirt and grime tend to build up over time and eventually professional tile cleaning in Virginia Beach becomes necessary.

It is important to clean hard surface floors in your home on a regular basis, if dirt and grime is allowed to accumulate it takes very little time for the sealer to wear away which only opens up the tile and grout to the penetration of debris into the surface. Although all hard surface floors will need professional attention periodically you can increase the time between cleanings by ensuring that your floors and swept and vacuumed at least once a week. It is best to use a vacuum fitted with a rotary brush and use warm water when you mop. Any time there is a spill of any kind, including water, it must be wiped up immediately.

The biggest problem with any tile floor is the grout. Grout is a plaster type material which is mixed with water and then applied to the joints between tiles. Even though the entire floor will be sealed at the time of installation the grout will begin to look dirty and dingy, especially in the bathroom and in front of the kitchen counters where there is the possibility of spills.

Tile grout is difficult to clean; the best way to go about cleaning it is to keep it clean in the first place. Periodically scrub the grout lines and dry them thoroughly after which you can apply any commercially available grout sealer. If you notice that the grout is beginning to crack this is the time to have it replaced. Damaged grout not only is quite unsightly, it is the ideal place for bacteria to multiply and mold to take hold.
