Did you just recently mop your floor? Take a look at your tile, and I mean a close look. You probably thought you were cleaning pretty well with your sweep and mop routine. Maybe you even got down on your knees for some painful scrubbing and grout cleaning. Unfortunately, when we go through all of this, we’re simply getting the surface of the problem. What’s worse, sometimes the dirty water left behind by mops and scrubbing brushes can actually help stain and ruin your beautiful floor.
If you look closely at the grout in between your floor tiles, you will see that it’s not a flat surface. Grout is a porous material made up of many holes. When dirty water sits on top of material such as this, all of that dirt and grime seeps into those holes and crevices and just stays.
No amount of tile cleaning, scrubbing, or mopping will be able to get all of that dirty water out and over time, that grout becomes stained and discolored. As with many store-bought or ‘at home’ remedies for floor cleaning, they rely on heavy cleaners like bleach. They simply don’t work well at all. As with all North County Carpet Cleaning services and products, we use eco-friendly products that are safe for your family, and your pets for all tile cleaning and grout cleaning services.
We highly recommend calling North County Carpet Cleaning at 360-980-6059, to schedule regular tile and grout cleaning visits. You work hard to make sure your floors are clean for your family, let us do the rest.
You want your floors to look the best they can, but you also want them to be as clean as possible. Besides the terrible appearance, a dirty floor can lead to a whole host of other problems and even some health issues.
Mold can be a serious issue in almost any area of the home. There are many varieties of mold that can commonly be found throughout the home. While much of this mold is little more than an irritant or annoying to some, there are some varieties of mold that can be life threatening. Mold hits most in areas of the home that are damp and cold, like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements. Regular tile cleaning from a North County Carpet Cleaning specialist can help keep many molds away from your household.
You know that a professional grout cleaning can do wonders for the way your floors look and feel. There are also a number of other benefits that can come from calling one of our tile and grout cleaning specialists out:
The best way to protect your investment and your family is by taking the proper steps to prevent undue stress on your floors, tile, and grout.
When you clean, be sure to always sweep before you mop or scrub. You want to remove as much dry soil and dirt as possible so it doesn’t build up and cause discoloration or weakening of the tiles and grout.
When you clean your floors, do not use harsh chemicals or cleaning agents. These can weaken any sealant or protectant you already have on your floors, as well as pose possible health risks to your family. After you have finished mopping, always be sure to rinse your floors. This will help remove some of that dirty water that is seeping into your grout and ruining your floors.
After every grout cleaning, you will have the option to add a special grout sealing protectant. This grout protectant will help guard your tiles and flooring against absorbing spills, spots, and everyday soiling. Giving you more time to remove these spills before it stains the freshly cleaned grout and a professional is needed. This process will also help your normal cleaning routine be more effective and last longer by adding an extra layer between the dirt and your tiles.
We all have more important things to worry about than our floors. Call North County Carpet Cleaning at 360-980-6059 to schedule a free estimate today.
