Do you mop your tile floors, but afterwards they STILL look dirty? Of course, sweeping and mopping should be done on a regular basis. But if you want your tile and the grout to look clean, it has to be done properly. Surprisingly enough, one of the biggest mistakes is using too much floor cleaner and no rinse. Using to much floor detergent can actually cause build up that will make your floors look even dirtier. What many people don't know is that it is actually beneficial to "rinse" your floors. That just means every other time you clean your floors, to use only pure water.
So what about the dirty grout? Those thin little lines between your tile can be very difficult to clean, and cleaning them with simply a mop, is next to impossible. The grout lines dip down below the tile, which causes your mop to never even come in contact with the grout. If there is severe soil build up, using a brush could be required to clean the grout. However, using a tiny little brush to brush to clean each grout line can be incredibly time consuming.
If you want to keep your tile and grout looking clean, the best preventive measure is to have a professional grout sealer applied. This is something that should be done immediately after installation, however, most installers don't do it for you. The lack of grout sealer and improper grout sealer is a big reason to why your grout looks so dirty. It's important to have your tile and grout deep cleaned BEFORE the sealer is applied so the the dirt is not trapped under the sealer.
When we clean your tile we use a high-pressure hot water system that completely rinses and extract the soils into a holding tank in our van. We also use a professional solvent-based sealer that penetrates into the grout to prevent soiling. Ideally this sealer should be reapplied every two or three years for the best results.
