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.

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.
