Tile Cleaning can be tricky. Most tiled floors and surfaces will unfortunatly lose their polish and shine. This means newer ceramic and porcelain tiled flooring tend to create more problems for tile cleaners nowadays. Seemingly smooth tiled surfaces not only become scratched and dulled from daily use they can also be porous which in turn create micro hiding places for dirt, oils, and bacteria.
As alot of these tiled surfaces are engineered with more texture, the scrubbing and mopping is less useful and effective than ever before. This method does not usually yield the results needed for regular maintenance or a deep clean. For this reason use professional tile cleaners like Capital Steam Cleaners . We will also take care of all tile and grout cleaning in an extremely methodical manner and help you achieve brilliant results. Because we have all the necessary tools and state of the art technology to deliver the best tile cleaning services available this is extremely possible.
With natural tiles if professional tile cleaning is not carried out correctly you can cause alot of damage. Sometimes even creating an unsightly looking surface with scratching. Just replacing the seal without , etching and damaged seal. And remember the lifespan of not only your seal but your tiles can be shortened significantly. One can also consider Tile Cleaning as vital as professional carpet cleaning as it is a regular requirement..
Even more noticeable and problematic than the tiles themselves can be the grout in between your tiles. Grout is generally a lot more vulnerable to corrosion and has even more texture capable of trapping dirt residue left over by simple mopping. The problem is caused by lack of tile and grout cleaning. The lime based grout easily absorbs moisture, oils and sugars that in turn attracts bacteria, dirt and other solids and changes the overall appearance by darkening the grout. Chemicals can dilute the grime well enough, but without effective tile and grout cleaning and removal, the formed slurry only soaks deeper into the grout. Rotary scrubbers fail to reach into the grout lines or the texture of the tiles.
Tile cleaners are often associated with food halls, restaurants, rest rooms and leisure areas. Home areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, toilets and more increasingly hallways, dining and living areas are generally tiled and grouted. Overall, dirty tile and grout is not aesthetically pleasing, and more importantly it is unhygienic not to get tile and grout cleaning. Over time, the usual mop and bucket of the day further illuminates the problem by adding more moisture and alkaline to the grout. Historically instead of professional tile and grout cleaning this has been tackled by either labour intensively scrubbing with nail brushes and detergents – or accepting the fact that after a number of years, lifting and relaying of the tile and grout will be required. This can obviously be tedious, time consuming and sometimes expensive. Try our Tile Cleaning Perth service and we’ll show you the difference.
