Grout is a mixture of cement, color, and sand. It is porous and, as a result, grout easily absorbs grease, dirt and lime scale. San Diego Carpet Cleaning stands behind floor manufacturer’s recommendation that you have your tile and grout cleaned once every 12 to 18 months because regular mopping just doesn’t reach the stubborn dirt that lies deep in the pores of your grout lines. Microscopic pores in the grout allow dirt and other contaminants to become trapped below the surface, where it can’t be removed by regular mopping and cleaning. This is why it’s so important to hire an experienced professional to clean your tile and grout on a regular basis. The San Diego Organic Carpet Cleaning division of Tile and Grout Cleaning Care specializes in cleaning tile and grout and restoring it to near new appearance.
We, as the number one San Diego Tile and Grout Cleaning Company, use the most highly recommended process to clean tile grout: a steam extraction method involving extremely hot water, detergents, water pressure and vacuum extraction. Steam extraction machines dislodge dirt packed in the tiny holes in your grout lines and lift it out. San Diego Organic Carpet Cleaning Tile and Grout Cleaning Care’s truck mounted cleaning process power washes the floor to extract soil and grease from the pores of the tile and grout or other hard surface floors. The system that our professional San Diego Tile and grout cleaners use generates water pressure of 1,000 to 1,200 PSI and a water temperature of approximately 240 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. The vacuum hose draws away the water, along with the dirt, to a containment tank on our truck and we dispose of the waste in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations.
Our tile and grout cleaning process restores the tile & grout to 85 to 90 percent of its original appearance. Most stains are removed, but some stains like red wine, mustard and dyes will not come out because they permanently dye the grout. For situations like this, our San Diego Tile and Grout Cleaning experts recommend restoring your grout with a pigmented penetrative seal to give grout lines a fresh new look and save you the expense of re-grouting. This latex-based topical sealer is applied to your grout lines, once your tile flooring has been properly cleaned and dried.
Even if your grout isn’t currently discolored, it pays to protect your grout lines and keep them looking good. Regular application of our sealant will keep stains beaded up on the surface of your grout lines give you enough time to wipe up dirt and spills before they are absorbed. Absorbed stains could permanently discolor your grout, and ground in dirt could cause your grout to weaken and break down. Protect your grout. Ask us to apply a clear or color sealant each time we come out to clean your tile and grout.
Please note, after your floor is cleaned and the seal is applied, San Diego Organic Carpet Cleaning recommends that you wait 30 minutes before walking on the floor to allow the sealant to dry. It will take 24 hours for the sealant to cure completely, so please avoid any liquid coming in contact with the sealant during that time.
