It can be tricky to keep your floors clean, especially tiles and grout, as it’s a porous surface that collects dirty water and breeds bacteria and mould. (That’s the black coating you can see.) Gross, right? Fortunately, a professional tile and grout cleaner will know exactly how to restore your tiles and grout to their former (super clean) glory:
To prepare the area, your cleaner will move furniture (if possible) and sweep the floors. Your tile and grout cleaning professional will start by identifying your stone or tile type to ensure they use the right cleaning methods. They’ll also test to check if there are any sealers/coatings, and if your grout is sanded, un-sanded, or epoxy. Next, they’ll apply a special grout cleaning solution to treat the area, leaving it to sit for around 10-20 minutes so it can start breaking down any grime, dirt, and contaminants on your floor.
Once the pre-treat solution has had enough time to work, your cleaner will agitate the floors, using scrubbing brushes (either manually or a machine scrubber). This helps to release many years (maybe even decades?) of built-up soil and grime.
Next, your tile and grout cleaning professional will rinse the floors, extracting dirty water. They’ll usually use a specialised washer/scrubber machine that washes the floor with high-pressured, hot water and then captures the dirty water. This minimising splashing so that only your floor surfaces get wet. Your cleaner will take care of this dirty water and empty it in a suitable location.
Finally, once the floor is clean and rinsed, your cleaner will dry your grout and tiles using towels, fans, or both, especially focusing on the grout lines. You may choose to seal the grout once it’s dry to help it stay clean and bright looking for longer.
