Cleaning your Miami tile and grout yourself can be a trial and actually end up causing more damage to your property rather than helping it. Even with a whole host of chemicals and semi-professional methods to sanitize your home, there are still some instances where there simply seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. Incredibly severe cases of mildew, mold, deterioration and staining might seem hopeless, but before you consider tearing down your tile and replacing it, which can be a time and money consuming project, think about a professional Miami tile cleaning service.
Many carpet cleaning services offer tile cleaning as well, but can also damage the tile and grout by shooting high-pressure steam into the grout, breaking it up and letting moisture seep into the backing of the floor. It is very important that you choose a cleaning service which specialized in tile and grout, and preferably one with a well-known history and a wealth of experience in the area. One company based in Crystal Lakes, Illinois has developed a six-step program to professionally and safely clean your tile and grout.
After an initial inspection of the area, the company will discuss a number of different options and the most proper cleaning method that should be undertaken. Spots, stains and other discolored areas are inspected and given a pre-soaking spray using a proprietary green and environmentally safe product and allowed to sit. After spraying with a safe higher pressured cleaning rinse to remove surface dirt and remove water, the corners and baseboards are also thoroughly cleaned and examined for damage. To prevent more moisture damage, the area is very efficiently dried and the grout lines are re-sealed to preserve the deep clean and prevent future damage.
This service and others like it also may offer the benefit of environmentally friendly green cleaning, which is also safe to use and dispose of, but also cuts down the risks of irritation to sensitive people who suffer from allergies, respiratory problems and other issues. This may seem like a last-ditch attempt, but it is actually very cost efficient to have your tile inspected on a semi-regular basis to make sure that it is staying clean, free of mold damage and other problems before it has a chance to get out of control. It is almost always less expensive to have a professional cleaning rather than having it re-installed, not to mention that sometimes tiles cannot be completely matched to preserve the look of your room.
