Tile and stone flooring requires a lot of upkeep. All of the sweeping, mopping, and scrubbing by hand still cannot guarantee that tile or stone floors will come out looking beautiful and new. Grout lines tend to become dingy over time. No matter how much care a home owner uses in the cleaning process, the grout’s porous texture will cause it to become discolored. That discoloration can make the floors look dirty, even after they have been cleaned. But a tile cleaning from Stanley Steemer can make those dirty looking floors a thing of the past.
Stanley Steemer has the knowledge and experience to get tile, stone and grout looking like new and keep it looking that way. Their expert care, cleaners and tools help to get deep down into the pores of tile, stone and grout to lift out stains, buildup, dirt, and microbial contaminates. Where hand cleaning fails and causes pain, the deep cleaning offered by Stanley Steemer gives excellent deep cleaning results without the pain.
An experienced professional will evaluate the floors to determine the right tools and cleaners that will get the job done best. Once one of the professionals from Stanley Steemer have determined what is needed, they put their expertise to work, cleaning tile, stone and grout with the best cleaners and high pressure water. The process is effective, yet gentle on the flooring. The results are beautiful, clean floors that look as good as new.
Once the cleaning process had been completed, the technician will apply a clear coat sealant that will keep the floors looking like new. This will also help to make future cleaning easier as the sealant will help stop new stains from forming. There are times where even the best effort and cleaning tools will not be able to remove some deep stains. For those situations, a waterproof color sealant can help to restore the grout.
The process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3 hours, depending on the size of the room, the size of the tile, the amount of staining and whether a sealant is used or not. The floors are able to be walked on again 30 minutes after the sealant has been applied. Care should be taken for 24 hours afterward to make sure no liquid comes in contact with the floors and the sealant has completely cured.
For the best results, proper care and maintenance is needed. The homeowner should sweep or vacuum the floor before mopping to remove the majority of soil. The best cleaner to use to ensure lasting results is Stanley Steemer Professional Neutral Tile and Grout Cleaner. Harsh cleaners, such as bleach, should be avoided and floors should be rinsed after mopping.
