Cleaning and Sealing Tile and Grout – Cape Coral

Ceramic and porcelain tile is both beautiful and durable; it can last as long as your home, but it isn’t completely maintenance free. Dirt adheres easily to the tile surface, especially styles with textured surfaces. Eventually this dirt will dull and discolor your flooring, leaving it looking old and dirty. Ceramic and porcelain tile requires periodic deep cleaning and maintenance to eliminate deeply penetrated dirt and stains.  An ugly floor will make your entire home look dated and uninviting.

Grout Sealing

Grout is much more vulnerable to problems than tile. Unsealed grout is basically sand and a small amount of porous cement, leaving it susceptible to all sorts of stains. Any spill will be quickly absorbed and can leave behind a permanent stain. Tracked in dirt and pet urine can also leave behind stains. Bathroom ceramic tile grout, whether on the floor or the walls, is prone to collecting soap, mildew and mold.

Grout is very porous and left unsealed will collect moisture, dirt, oil and allergens thereby creating the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria, mold and mildew.

What can be done?

Professional tile and grout cleaning and sealing by Tru Clean can bring back its original beauty and help to keep it that way. If your grout is discolored and stained or, if you wish to change the color of your grout, it can be cleaned, colored, and sealed. A new color grout can give the appearance of a whole new floor for thousands less than tile and grout replacement. Furthermore, professional sealing or color sealing will prevent moisture, dirt and grime from being absorbed into the grout. All grout is porous and should be sealed.

Ceramic or porcelain tile itself does not need to be sealed as most tiles available today have matte, shine free finishes and are glazed and will not accept a sealer.

A ceramic or porcelain tile floor is a gorgeous addition to any room, giving it a look of luxury that is hard to match with any other type of flooring, and once the grout is sealed it is fairly maintenance free. It should only need an occasional damp mopping with a neutral cleaner to retain its beauty.
