Tile & Grout FAQ

Tile and grout appearance becomes discolored over time as a result of dirt and residue build up. Cleaning tile and grout greatly changes the appearance of the room. It makes your dingy dark floor appear bright and vibrant again. Professional tile and grout cleaning is the most effective way to remove dirt, bacteria and germs, leaving you with a cleaner and safer environment.

Many factors can determine the frequency of a professional clean, such as high traffic, children, pets and even floor maintenance. Applying a sealant to the grout will extend the time between professional cleanings.

Grout is a porous material subject to absorbing dirt and spills, which can result in staining. Applying a sealant helps create a barrier, keeping the grout stain-free longer.

We recommend allowing 2 hours before light foot traffic. Keeping grout dry for 7 days after initial cleanup and avoiding scrubbing the grout for up to 20 days is suggested.

Our sealer is specifically designed to be used with all sanded and non-sanded grouts.

New grout does not need to be cleaned first. Pre-existing grout must be clean and free of dust, dirt grease, oil and sealers of any kind.

The majority of all our projects are completed in one day.
