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.

Tile Cleaning Company – Should I Seal My Grout After Cleaning?

Should I Seal my grout after having my tile and grout professionally cleaned? The answer is a resounding yes. When having a Tile Cleaning Company out it is always important to Seal your Grout After they clean. 

Here Is Why You Should Have Your Grout Sealed After Cleaning

Your Grout Is Most Vulnerable After Cleaning

After having your Tile and Grout professionally cleaned your grout is in its most vulnerable state. The reason why is because you have cleared away the dirt and a very thin layer of grout with the pressure and steam. Putting in the Sealant after the cleaning will help to protect your freshly cleaned grout from stains and dirt from penetrating your grouts pores.

Sealing Will Protect Your Investment

Floors are expensive, protecting your investment by applying Sealant just makes sense. Is Sealant going to keep your floors from getting dirty? No. But Sealing your grout will help keep your floors looking cleaner longer.

After Tile and Grout Cleaning Care

Every Tile Cleaning Company should leave some form of instructions for after the cleaning care. We always recommend switching over to a Neutral Floor Cleaner such as Zep Neutral Floor Cleaner or Crystal Clean by Stone Pro. Another great solution is using a Steam Mop with Distilled Water. It’s important to use distilled water when using a steam mop because regular tap water will cause an issue with your machine and will leave scale build up in your grout.

Why Choose UpFront Home Services To Clean Your Tile and Grout?

When you have us clean your Tile and Grout we include sealing of the Grout FREE! What could be easier than having us out vs having another company that clean for you that charges more to seal your grout. Not only do we include sealing of your grout we include both Alkaline and Acid rinsing for your floor as well. Using both an alkaline and an acid guarantee that your floors are their absolute cleanest before we seal the grout.

Tile and Grout Cleaning Service – The Difference Between Hiring a Franchise and a Grout Cleaning Specialist

The Difference Between Hiring a Franchise and a Grout Cleaning Specialist

So you opened your mail box and got a flyer or valpak in the mail that advertises Tile and Grout Cleaning service. Almost always its a local franchise advertising a price for Tile and Grout Cleaning Service at “special price”. What they aren’t saying in their ad is what they are and aren’t including in their pricing.

Tile and Grout Cleaning Service Steps and Chemistry

Typically what I see more often than not is the advertising of a 2 step process. What’s included in these 2 steps is 1) Alkaline Pre-Treatment and 2) Steam Cleaning. That’s all fine if you’re grout doesn’t need restoration. Unfortunately a majority of grout stains require extra treatment with an Acid to remove them. The local franchises simply don’t include using Acid in their Tile and Grout Cleaning Service pricing and will charge double to use Acid on your floors. Some Franchise technicians can’t even recognize what is a natural stone floor and a man made surface. Believe me when I say that being able to determine what is safe to use certain chemistry on is exceptionally important as to not ruin the floors you are having cleaned.

Property Protection

An important aspect to any Tile and Grout Cleaning service is Property Protection. A Grout Cleaning specialist will use moving blankets, corner guards, runner rugs, and other forms of protectors for your home. It’s really easy to get cleaning chemicals onto wood. Poor quality cleaners can leave a haze or scratch corners with hoses. In fact, most franchise operations don’t provide their technicians with property protectors because it slows down their technicians. Hiring a service that cares not only about your floors, but your home as well is important so that you have a good experience vs a nightmare cleaning.

Grout Sealing

The local franchises charge extra for Grout Sealing. This add on is especially important when you factor in the long term health of your Tile and Grout. If you start to factor in the cost to have your Tile and Grout Cleaning performed by a franchise vs a specialist the cost just keeps going up and up. This reminds me of when you go to get an oil change and they constantly make recommendations that cost you more and more every time you turnaround. When you see a company advertising $.45 or $.65 cents per sqft take that charge and multiply it by 3 ($1.35 – $1.95) and you will get the true cost to hire them to clean your floors.

The UpFront Difference

Our Pricing for Tile and Grout Cleaning is the most inclusive Grout Cleaning experience in Houston. We offer a 9 Step Cleaning Process vs the Franchise 2 Step approach. Our service also includes Grout Sealing at no extra charge. We use Property Protectors to ensure that your cleaning experience with us goes smoothly and we leave your home in better shape than what we found it. So don’t be fooled by low price coupon mailers, give us a call to come out and quote your cleaning based on the job not just the square foot.
