I get asked all the time “How Often Should I Have Tile and Grout Cleaning?” it really depends on you and your living environment. Having your Tile and Grout Cleaned and Sealed should occur more often in the high traffic area and heavily used areas about once per year. I see kitchen being cleaned on an annual basis but Living Areas are typically every couple of years. Why is that? The Kitchen Area sees the most grease and dirt and is also the most mopped area in a home. Unfortunately most home owners use the wrong products and tools to clean their floors. What happens is that through using the wrong products and tools a residue starts to form on the floor and attracts dirt. Here is a link to an article I wrote regarding proper tile and grout floor maintenance tools and techniques.
I recommend cleaning the kitchen area professionally once per year. A good impregnating sealant will help keep the grout cleaner longer and allow for easier cleaning on an annual basis.
Yes, I recommend cleaning the inside of the shower and the floors professionally about once a year. Why? Because these areas get the most use and you could prevent mold and mildew through regular maintenance.
I recommend Cleaning the Tile and Grout in these areas every couple of years or as necessary. The rule of thumb is every other cleaning to have the entry and living area cleaned. This all depends on your mopping technique and the area usage.
