Grout Cleaning & Sealing
It can be quite messy, and even impractical, to clean the floor tiles in your homes regularly with your hands. But, if not scrubbed properly, the absence of consistent deep cleaning can make the tiles dirty and dull over time. For maintaining your tiles in prime condition, therefore, it is necessary to get professional help.
The main reason your tiles get dirty is the grime that the grout – the space between the tiles – keeps accumulating. Grout is made of porous material, where small dust particles can easily settle down. This makes the surface lose color, giving it a dull appearance.
Most people opt for spot cleaning or ordinary mopping. However, this does not clean the tiles properly, as the dirt still remains hidden in the grout pores. Our team from Marble Pros Polishing & Restoration brings back the luster of the tiles and makes the floor look as good as new again. We have the latest techniques and the expertise that can turn the dullest looking tiled floor into a new one, with the results noticeably better than what you would get even with intensive scrubbing.
The process of grout cleaning and sealing begins with the examination of your floor. We review the tiles and determine the best methods and products that will work for them. We discuss with you the complete process to make you understand the steps your tiles and grout will go through. Once you give us the go ahead, we start the process with a high-pressure vacuum and water combination to remove all the grime covering your tiles. This basic, but highly effective, step cleans the grout pores thoroughly, leaving no trace of grime.
Once the grout is cleaned, we move to the next step, which is sealing. This involves a sealant that acts as a finishing coat to protect the tile. This shields the grout and the tile from any grime and helps retain its sheen for a long period of time. The sealant is made to pass deep through the surface of the grout, forming a layer of protection against all spills and stains your floor experiences. This also ensures that very basic cleaning in the future can bring out better results on the tiles and grout. The sealant offered by Marble Pros Polishing & Restoration is one of its kind, which gives uniformity to the floor and ensures that even the most corrosive chemicals would not discolor the tile.
Our team usually takes about an hour to complete a room of about 300 sq. ft. area. The time required, of course, varies depending on the amount of dirt covering the tiles and can go up slightly if the room is larger. We strictly allow the sealant to dry for 30 minutes in natural conditions. For best results, however, it is advisable to let it dry for a further 24 hours. This completes the short, but important, cleaning and sealing process for the tiles of your room.
