Cleaning and Sealing Grout
Let's be honest — it's easy to forget that your tile flooring needs to be professionally cleaned just as regularly as your carpet or wood flooring. While you may know us as the carpet and upholstery cleaning specialists, here at One of a Kind Pros, we are also pros at cleaning tile and grout flooring.
Not only do we offer thorough and effective pro cleaning services, we also service grout maintenance and sealing to ensure that your tile floors look and hold up as if they were brand new with that showroom shine.
Today I am going to guide you through the cleaning and sealing process that comes with grout maintenance. I have a feeling there's a little more to the trade than you may suspect. So, my goal is to help you be as informed as possible so that you feel confident in the cleaning choices you make for your home or business.
Get Your Grout Sealed While Cleaning
When people call us — the professionals — to help with their tile, a cleaning service may be the only thing on their mind. While deep cleanings are a service we are happy to offer, you can further extend the life and look of your tile flooring by opting to re-seal your grout.
It may not be obvious just by looking at your tile floors, but the grouting surrounding your tiles comes with a seal covering the porous parts of exposed grout, allowing the connective material to hold up against the dirt and debris it will encounter over the years.
How Sealing Your Grout Can Make A Difference In Your Home
So, why would you choose to seal the grout? Sure, dirt can be a nuisance, but does it really have such a weighted impact on your floor's grouting?
Simply put, the answer is yes. Due to the porous nature of grout; dirt, liquid, and other contaminants can sink deep within the microscopic holes and cause long-lasting discoloration and build-up if not treated regularly. Additionally, sealing your grout protects it from water and any other liquids that may find its way to your floors. The last thing you want is a biological zoo consisting of mold and bacteria to be thriving just under the soles of your feet.
Choosing What Color To Make Your Grout
In the event that you do choose to re-seal the grout surrounding your tiles, we're happy to tell you that you're not going to be confined to just one option. Sealing materials for your grout come in a nice variety of colors so that you can ever-so-slightly customize the look of your flooring without breaking the bank. Who would have known that you could bring a whole new look to your living and work areas with such a simple switch?
Why Color Grout May Be a Good Idea
Outside of the ability to change up the look and flow of your room, choosing a colored grout sealing formula can actually offer a few more benefits that you may not be expecting.
First, darker grout colors can help mask dirt and stains. If you do not anticipate regular tile and grout cleanings, these darker colors may be a great fit for your home.
Additionally, colored sealers can help make your old, worn grout pearly white again, bringing a new vibrancy and radiance to your floors.
Regardless of which option you choose to go with, you can rest easy knowing that the finished product will result in clean, picture-perfect flooring.
