The secret to great-looking tile is great looking grout. Because grout is porous it easily absorbs spills, pet urine, grease, dirt and other particulates including mildew and mold. It seems that no matter how hard the homeowner tries to keep their tile and grout looking its best, the battle is soon lost and your floors quickly return to their pre-cleaning appearance.
There are several reasons why tile and grout floors can be so hard to maintain. The number one reason is the grout has not been protected with a quality “commercial” sealer. Unprotected grout quickly absorbs the dampness from mops and steamers as you try to maintain the looks of your flooring. As the grout absorbs the moisture it also pulls in dirt and bacteria which will reappear over the next week and you’ll have to begin the cleaning process all over again.
Some homeowners go the extra step and purchase a grout cleaning solution and scrub brush at their local hardware store and then get on their hands and knees, scrubbing the grout lines just like the directions on the bottle instructs. Once they’ve finished this back-breaking procedure it’s time to admire their handiwork for about two weeks and the dirt and grime simply returns. You see, what the directions on the cleaning bottle didn’t say was that to really “deep clean” grout you’ll need a commercial quality cleaning solution AND a commercial-grade tile and grout cleaning machine.
To effectively clean tile and grout, Tru-Clean Surface Care uses very specific emulsifying cleaning solutions that can not be purchased at a hardware store. We couple our proprietary cleaners with specialized cleaning equipment capable of removing years of deep-set soils and bacteria. To effectively clean tile and grout you must apply over 800lbs of agitation and conditioned rinsing agents and a homeowner with a scrub brush simply can not accomplish this.
