Is the Only Purpose of Grout to get Dirty

Believe it or not, that thin, sandy strip of grout in between each of your porcelain, stone or ceramic tiles is one of the most important aspects of your tile surface. Without grout, anything you drop or spill on your floor would be able to creep in between your tiles and start an ecosystem of its very own. With grout filling the gap between your tiles, you now have some defense against this predicament. But grout is porous and can absorb liquids, dirt and dust so it needs to be cleaned and maintained in order to keep the appearance looking new and to keep the area sanitized and safe from bacteria and mold.

The best way to make sure your grout is cleaned safely and effectively is to call your local grout cleaning and restoration company. A professional and affordable contractor can restore your grout and tile so that it is looks like it did when your floors, bathrooms and other tiled surfaces were new.

One of the most frequent requests received by contractors is to clean and sanitize all the tiled surfaces in bathrooms of retail and residential locations. Bathrooms are especially tricky since they are damp rooms. Bathrooms also tend to have more tile and grout than any other room in the house. Unfortunately, this gives mold, mildew and fungus the perfect breeding ground. Your grout cleaning professional will use a variety of methods to ensure that your bathroom is cleaned safely and effectively - removing any chance for illness causing mold to build up.

The best method though is a specialized VAPOR Technology. Steam cleaning restores the original beauty of your shower, floor or counter without the use of hazardous chemicals.

Whether you've got tile in your kitchen, bathroom, living room or bedroom, you've no doubt noticed that stains can occur on grout quite frequently due to accidental spills. Scrubbing the surface grout - the layer of grout you can see - will not always remove the stain. In some cases, this offers temporary relief, but eventually the stain creeps back up from the bottom layers of grout where it has found a comfortable home.
