Your home is your sanctuary. As such, you do whatever you can to keep it clean. Many simple jobs, such as vacuuming, dusting, or surface cleaning are easy enough to do, but others can be a bit tricky. Sometimes, there also are not enough hours in the day to get to all of your cleaning tasks, so you can be forgiven for turning to a professional. Tile work, in particular, can be both time-consuming and difficult to clean. While you can certainly take a shot at grout cleaning on your own, sometimes a professional can get the job done in a more efficient manner. If you have a big party or gathering coming up, or perhaps you are staging your home, you may want to contact a service such as ours at CBC Cleaning and Construction to get the job done. You may be wondering, why is it so tough to return grout to its original luster, and what exactly can a professional do that you cannot?
Tiling can look great, especially when it is clean. It can also be expensive to install, so it is in your best interests as a homeowner to maintain it. Grout can be a magnet for dirt and grime for a few reasons. For one, if grout is used in tile flooring, it is going to attract dirt no matter what from foot traffic. Grout can also be rather porous (depending on its type), which lets dirt embed deep within its grooves and cracks. Tile is also commonly found in kitchens and bathrooms, which means it is frequently exposed to water and moisture. While tile and grout can give these rooms a sleek and clean look, it can also foster mold and mildew rather effectively. You can take an old toothbrush and try a store-bought cleaning solution (toilet bowl cleaner can actually work well), but if you are dealing with a stubborn mess, you might want to call a pro.
How Does Professional Grout Cleaning Work?
So, what makes a professional cleaning service better at restoring grout than the average homeowner? Well, for one, they will have access to more specialized, stronger cleaning solutions that are not always found at the store. These chemicals are often Ph-balanced, and they can give off toxic fumes, which a professional can accommodate with safety gear and proper ventilation techniques. Professional-level grout cleaning can be dangerous, so in that scenario, it can best be left to those who make it their business.
Another factor to consider is experience. No matter how extreme your level of grime or mildew may be, a professional service has likely seen much worse. With that experience also comes a knowledge of what solutions and tools will work best in order to get the job done.
