We know that you strive to keep your home clean, but sometimes the deep cleaning tasks can get away from us. One of these tasks that people often don’t think about is deep cleaning tile. Sure you might wipe down your tile every once in a while, but when was the last time you actually had it deep cleaned? If it’s been a while, it’s time to get a professional tile cleaner in to clean your tile. Sure, you could scrub your tile yourself, but here are 5 reasons why you should schedule a professional tile cleaning appointment today.
Only Professionals Can Remove Deep Down Dirt
Tile and especially grout are porous surfaces, which means that contaminants can easily penetrate them. Over time, dirt and spills seep into your grout—leaving it discolored, not to mention gross. No matter how hard you scrub, this dirt can’t be completely removed from porous surfaces by hand because it’s sunk deep into the material. You should regularly wipe down your tile, but be aware that you are only removing the dirt and germs on the outside layer of the tile.
On the other hand, professionals have advanced techniques and equipment the is powerful enough to clean and sanitize tile and grout deep down. They can help remove dirt that is discoloring the porous grout, as well as mold that thrives in wet porous surfaces.
Some home cleaning products that claim to effectively clean tile leave behind a sticky residue that will actually attract dirt and make your tile dirtier over time. Experts can remove this sticky residue and won’t leave any behind, either.
Experts Apply A Protective Sealant To Block Dirt And Bacteria
Once you have removed all of the contaminants from your tile and grout, you want to make sure that they will stay clean. Professional tile cleaners have special sealants that apply a protective layer over your tile and grout to prevent anything seeping in.
Most tile comes with a sealant applied, but it wears out over time (and a vigorous cleaning can remove it). It’s important to have sealant regularly applied by a professional in order to keep your tile cleaner and healthier. This will also extend the life of your tile.
Experts Save You Time
Good tile cleaning takes time. You can could get down on your hands and knees and scrub your tile floor yourself, or you can do something else while the professionals tackle it for you. Thanks to their powerful equipment, professional cleaners can have the job done in less time, and the best part is you can do something else while they work. If you are busy, scheduling a tile cleaning is a great way to save time and still have a clean home to enjoy.
Professional Cleaning Is Cost-Effective
Some people choose DIY cleaning because they think it is more cost-effective than paying someone else. However, there is great value in having a professional clean your tile. Home cleaning solutions aren’t as powerful, meaning that you will have to clean more often (and spend more money on cleaners). Plus, they don’t provide the sealant that professional will, which can greatly extend the time you need in between cleaning and the lifespan of your tile. A tile cleaner will know the best way to clean and preserve your tile, which means that your tile will last longer and you won’t need to replace it as quickly.
Tile, Grout, and Stone Cleaning Makes Your Home Healthier
Mold loves damp, porous places like tile in kitchens and bathrooms. Mold is also a health hazard that can cause respiratory issues, especially among those with allergies or asthma. Germs and bacteria also thrive in tile and grout.
