Grout Cleaning Service – How Long Does Grout Sealer Last?

I get asked this question a lot after providing a Grout Cleaning Service. How Long Does Grout Sealer Last? The honest answer is that it truly varies by how you maintain your floors, how often you cook, and how much foot traffic your floors will receive. Typically Grout Sealer will last anywhere from 1 – 3 Years in ideal conditions.

Here’s How To Make Your Sealant Last Longer

Using Proper Cleaning Techniques


Using a mop and bucket just doesn’t cut it, it actually will make your tile and grout dirtier over time and affect the sealers ability to block out the dirt. Utilizing a Flat Head mop with a container to spray the product and clean the floor will keep your sealer in tact longer. Just be sure to wash your Flat Head Mops pad after every use. Another good piece of equipment to utilize is a Steam Mop. The main thing with using a steam mop is using distilled water and washing the microfiber pads after each use.

The Right Cleaning Product

Using proper chemistry is important to maintaining your Tile and Grout over the long term. I highly recommend using a Neutral Floor Cleaner such as Zep Neutral Floor Cleaner or Stone Pro’s Crystal Clean when cleaning your floors. These types of products won’t leave a residue and will make your investment in a Grout Cleaning Service be a little more worthwhile. 

Consistent Maintenance

Consistently Maintaining your floors is crucial for making your sealant last longer. I recommend vacuuming, sweeping, and flat head mopping / steam mopping your floors at least once per week. By keeping the dirt off the floor you will have a much lower chance of creating a stain in your grout and destroying the Grout Sealer.

Grout Cleaning Service- 3 Things To Look For When Hiring A Grout Cleaning Service

Grout Cleaning ServiceSo, it’s time to have your Tile and Grout Cleaned. You’ve probably thought about getting on your hands and knees and scrubbing with whatever cleaning product they are recommending in DYI videos or blogs. Then it hits you, it’s simply not easy to clean your floors. That’s when you know it’s time to hire a Grout Cleaning Service. But what should you be looking for when you start the process to hire a Grout Cleaning Service?

Here Are 3 Things To Look For When Hiring  A Grout Cleaning Service

What’s Included In The Price

1 – It’s easy to get caught up in the low cost per sqft price that you see advertised in a coupon mailer, but what does it really include? Always make sure that both an Alkaline Rinse and an Acid Rinse are included in your Grout Cleaning Service. The reason behind this is two fold, 1) the Acid will neutralize any alkalinity left behind after the cleaning. This is important to ensure that your Tile and Grout will be pH neutral and not allow dirts to easily stick to it. 2) Multiple Cleaning passes ensure that your Grout Cleaning is as thorough as it possibly can be so that you are Sealing in dirt. Always be sure to Seal your Tile and Grout after cleaning, be sure the service professional includes sealing of the Grout in their pricing.

Make Sure It Is Truck Mount Steam Cleaning

2 – There are a lot of Tile and Grout Cleaning companies out there and quite a few of them are not running Truck Mounted equipment. Some companies are using Floor Buffers or Portable equipment to perform a Grout Cleaning Service. Floor Buffers and Portables just don’t provide the necessary Pressure, Heat, and Extraction needed to perform a thorough cleaning. Now this is not to say that everyone with a Truck Mount has the same equipment. A serious Grout Cleaning Service invests in high quality Truck Mounted equipment with some units costing upwards of $60,000 and that doesn’t take into account all the accessories and chemicals needed to clean your tile and grout.

It’s About Who Is Performing The Cleaning

Grout Cleaning Service3 – The most important factor is the service technician actually performing the work. Does the company properly train their technicians and what is their experience level? Does the company guarantee their work? These are all important factors to consider when hiring a Grout Cleaning Service. Getting the best technician can be more important than selecting the company but also make sure the company has a rock solid guarantee to back up their service.

4 Sure Signs Its Time For Tile and Grout Cleaning

Your Tile and Grout floors can be an easy textile to forget when checking off your cleaning list. Sometimes we may think our tile and grout floors are clean when they are actually just evenly dirty.

Here are 4 Sure Signs That It’s Time For Tile and Grout Cleaning

Sign #1 – The Grout under your cabinet trim, rugs, baseboards, and sections that aren’t trafficked frequently are a different shade than the rest of your floors. This is one of the easiest ways to tell if you need Tile and Grout Cleaning.

Sign #2 – Your Tile has become dull. Dullness in your Tile can be due to a build up of dirt and residue or if you have a natural stone this could be due to scratches as well. Tile Cleaning when residues are apparent will show a major improvement and bring back the luster your floors once had. For natural stone our unique diamond polishing system will remove the scratches and make your floors beautiful again.

Sign #3 – Your Grout has become discolored in specific sections due to spills or hard water stains. Grout Cleaning can help remove discoloration from spills and hard water. Sometimes stains in your Grout can become permanent, so it is important to complete grout cleaning and grout sealing often to avoid stains.

Sign #4 – Your constantly cleaning but your Tile and Grout just continues to get dirtier. If this is the case it is time to re-evaluate what you are using to clean your Tile and Grout. A steam mop with distilled water or a neutral floor cleaner are the best solutions to maintain your Tile and Grout. However, once your floor gets to this state professional Tile and Grout Cleaning is especially necessary to restore your floors and your grout.
