Furthermore, your vacuum may not do anything against dust mites, pet dander and other types of infestations in your carpets. This can lead to allergic reactions in sensitive family members. Finally, if you accidentally spill something on your carpet, your vacuum cleaner will not remove the stain or spot, and trying to clean it yourself may actually make matters worse.
Tile is a beautiful way to improve the look of your home, but it can also be difficult to clean properly. Good tile and grout cleaning requires hours of intense labor for the average homeowner, and sealing the tile, stone or hard surface is a separate chore that can cause problems for those who do not know how to do it properly. It is important to trust a professional when it comes to tile and grout cleaning in Escondido, and Showcase is ready to help!
Cleaning Tile and Grout Properly
If you have tile and grout in your home, you probably already know that effective cleaning is not as simple as spraying on a cleaning solution and wiping away. Depending on the type of tile you have and how it is grouted, you may need special cleaning methods to get beautiful results.
Essentially, tile is a block of some type of material sitting in a bed of grout. Your tile may be glazed or natural ceramic, or you may have stone or some other material as your “tile,” but whatever you have it is embedded in some type of material that holds it in place. Over time, this grout can become dirty and even infested with mold or mildew, making your tile look dull and dirty even if it is “clean.”
This means that cleaning tile is really a two-step process: cleaning the tile material properly and cleaning the grout. These two processes may use the same techniques and chemicals or they may be completely different, depending on the material you have.
Sealing: An Important Step
An important and often overlooked step in cleaning your tile is sealing the grout after cleaning. By sealing the grout, you lock out moisture that can result in mold or mildew. You also prolong the life of the grout and help it to hold your tile in place more effectively.
However, sealing grout can be difficult, particularly if the tile is placed close together. If you are not sure how to seal your grout, trust a professional to do this important job for you. You can ruin your tile with improper cleaning and sealing methods.
