Tile and grout are common in bathrooms and kitchens. They are durable, versatile, and attractive but require regular maintenance to keep them looking their best. Over time, dirt, grime, mold, and bacteria can accumulate on the tile surface and the grout lines, making them look dull, stained, and unsanitary. That's why hiring a professional service to clean your tile and grout periodically.

When the Tile and Grout Cleaning Service Arrives

First, the professional service will inspect your tile and grout to determine their condition, identify any problem areas, and choose the best cleaning method and solution. If the tile needs to be repaired, they might discuss it with you and recommend solutions. 


Next, the cleaning service will pre-treat your tile and grout with a high-quality cleaner that loosens the dirt and stains from the surface and penetrates deep into the grout's pores. They may also use a special brush or tool to agitate the cleaner and remove any stubborn dirt or residue.

The best type of brush to use is a stiff-bristled brush. This brush will effectively remove dirt and grime from the tile's surface and between the grout lines. They will choose a brush appropriate for the size of the area being cleaned and use gentle pressure to avoid damaging the tile surface. 

Steam Cleaning

Next, the cleaning service will use a powerful steam cleaner that delivers hot water and pressure to rinse and extract the dirt and cleaner from your tile and grout. The steam cleaner also sanitizes your tile and grout by killing germs and bacteria.

Finally, they dry your tile and grout with a fan or towel and apply a protective sealant that prevents future stains and makes cleaning easier. The sealer they will use is water-based and will make your floor look more natural.

What to Expect After Cleaning Your Floor

By hiring a professional service to clean your tile and grout, you can enjoy many benefits, such as:

  • Enhancing the appearance of your tile and grout by removing dirt, stains, mold, and mildew
  • Improving the hygiene of your tile and grout by eliminating germs, bacteria, allergens, and odors
