Tile & Grout Cleaning

Tile Floors

Ceramic and stone tile floors have become increasingly popular and common, especially in kitchens, bathrooms, halls and foyers. In fact, since tile floors are so versatile and adaptable to various styles and decors, it is not unusual to see tile flooring in other living spaces in the home, such as dining rooms, living rooms, craft rooms and bedrooms. Tiles are practical, hygienic, energy efficient and hardwearing. However, like other floor coverings, they are not maintenance free. In order for tile floors to look their best and last longer, they need professional cleaning occasionally.

Tile and Grout Cleaning

As many homeowners know, cleaning grout takes a lot of elbow grease. However, simply soaping and scrubbing does not get rid of stains because grout is porous. All the dirt, dust, oil, and spills that are deposited on tile floors, not to mention mold and mildew, get ground into the grout easily, making it look grimy. Some homeowners make the situation worse by using various chemicals or bleach to whiten the grout. The results are less than ideal because these cleaners make the grout even more porous and susceptible to staining.

Tile and Grout Sealing

There is an easier way to maintain tile and grout and it consists of cleaning as well as sealing. At LMS Restoration, we recommend that tile floors be steam cleaned prior to being sealed. This simple professional service keeps both your tile and grout stain free and allows for ease of care and maintenance. More importantly, sealing eliminates the need for scrubbing, as it naturally protects against stains.

Tiles are made from different materials and not all of them need to be sealed. For example, porcelain and ceramic tiles do not need sealing, but stone tiles, such as marble, granite, travertine and slate are porous and therefore are easily stained when exposed to spills and dirt. LMS Restoration technicians inspect your tile flooring and make sealing recommendations accordingly.

Sealing - Sealing depends on the type of tile and grout you have.

Post-inspection – Our technician inspects the area and makes sure you are pleased with the results.

Tile and Grout Repair and Restoration

Occasionally, tile and grout flooring needs more than just professional cleaning and sealing. With time, grout can crack and crumble and wear and tear can add up on your tile. It may be cracked due to heavy traffic or faulty installation, or it may be chipped due to a sharp or heavy object falling on it. In any of these cases, LMS Restoration technicians can replace or repair the damage and restore your area so it looks brand new and beautiful. We are sure you would be pleasantly surprised at the results.
