Tile And Grout Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions

Professional tile floor cleaningAs with carpeting, over time, tile and grout will begin to fade and become discolored with the build-up of dirt and residues. Especially if the tile hasn’t been cleaned in quite a while, ordinary householder cleaners won’t eliminate all the stains, germs, and bacteria on those tiles and the grout. Only rigorous cleaning by a professional tile and grout cleaner can remove long-standing dirt and restore the tiles to like-new condition. Thoroughly cleaned tiles and grout dramatically alter the appearance of a room for the better and makes the environment cleaner and safer to inhabit. Instead of difficult scrubbing for less than satisfactory results, an expert cleaning company will use specialized machines that can penetrate deep.
Regular tile floor cleaningThere is no simple answer to this question. The length of time between professional cleanings depends on the traffic on the tile floor or where the tile wall is located (for example, in a busy kitchen), if there are children and pets in the house, and the type of regular maintenance done. If a sealant is applied to the grout, it won’t need to be cleaned as often. Generally speaking, tile and grout cleaning for tile floors is done once every 2 to 5 years.

tile floor grout sealingSince grout is a porous material, it can easily absorb spills and other soils. A sealant creates a barrier that protects the grout from dirt, grime, and spilled liquids. This gives you additional time to clean it up before it can become absorbed, making the grout much easier to keep clean. KIWI offers a grout sealer that enhances its durability and appearance.

It is recommended to wait about 30 minutes before walking on a tile and grout floor, so the sealant can properly dry. It takes approximately 24 hours for the sealant to cure completely, so you should prevent the grout from getting wet.
