FAQ and Info


Due to the porous nature of tile and grout, a multitude of contaminants such as soil, uric acid, bacteria, and dirty mop water are absorbed into the surfaces causing foul odors and a dingy, unsightly appearance.

Q. Why should I have my tile and grout professionally cleaned when I can simply mop it?
A. Mopping alone cannot achieve the kind of results we can. In fact, when you mop your tile you often make the grout more diry. You may get the tile surface clean, but the dirt on the mop gets ground into the porous and rough grout actually making it worse. We power down and focus on the grout for a deep and powerful clean.

Q. Can I change my grout color?
A. Yes. our color sealing process allows you to change grout from light to dark or dark to light with hundreds of colors and shades to choose from. Save thousands by updating an old tile area instead of replacing it.

Professional grout cleaning can help add value to your home by making the grout look clean and new. If you plan to sell your home, you want to be sure that a professional does the grout cleaning. If you decide to try to do the grout cleaning on your own, you may end up with less desirable results. Leaving it to professionals can ensure that grout cleaning helps raise the value of your home.

Grout absorbs water, oils and soils. The presence of these contaminants leads to the growth of mold and mildew. Grout sealers help to prevent this absorption into the grout line.

Q. Does grout have to be cleaned before stain/sealing?
A. New grout is ready for protection 10 days after installation and does not need to be cleaned first. On older tile areas, the grout joints must be clean and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil, sealers, or coatings of any kind.

Q. How should I maintain my ceramic tile?
A. Ceramic tile should be maintained using a neutral PH tile and grout cleaner. Harsh cleaners like bleach, ammonia, and vinegar can damage grout and should be avoided.
