Tips For Taking Care Of Your Tiled Floors in SW Florida


Tru-Clean Surface Care is SW Florida’s leading natural stone,  tile, and grout cleaning company. We have cleaned thousands of tile, marble, granite, travertine, and terrazzo floors and surfaces throughout Lee, Charlotte, and Collier County since 2006.

Tile and natural stone floors are beautiful and don’t require much maintenance IF you use the right product and seal your stone or grout lines.

Here are some easy steps you can follow to keep your hard surface flooring looking its very best.

  1. Don’t use acidic cleaners – Cleaners infused with acidic components may cause grout to lose its color or crumble out of grout joints.  In addition, acidic solutions can damage natural stone. We use and recommend Deep-Clean – Heavy Duty Stone and Grout Cleaner that can be purchased in Cape Coral or ordered online.
  2. Learn how to mop the RIGHT way – Scrubbing your tiles the old-fashioned way with water, soap product, and a mop is a process of the past. Pushing muddy water around just for the dirt to collect in grout joints defeats the entire purpose of cleaning.  Steam mops work great and you can add Deep-Clean Heavy Duty Stone and Grout Cleaner directly to the mops tank.
  3. Seal your grout – Sealing your grout, or natural stone will ultimately help you in your future cleaning endeavors. Grout and stone can be sealed to help keep out germs, scum, and mold, making your life easier and cleaner.
  4. Have your floors professionally cleaned – You should have your tile and grout cleaned at least every 2-4 years (depending on traffic and your maintenance program) by a reputable company such as Tru-Clean Surface Care. We have been trained and are a StonePro Certified Pro, a surpHaces Certified PRO Partner, and maintain international certification by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

Tru-Clean Surface Care is A+ Rated by the Better Business Bureau and an eight-year-in-a-row-winner of the coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award.
