Commercial Tile & Grout Cleaning
Multiple Cleaning Solutions for Varied Tile Surfaces
Modern workplaces typically consist of more than upholstered furnishings and carpeted floors. In fact, tile and other hard surfaces are becoming increasingly commonplace. The Stanley Steemer tile cleaning process extracts the dirt from your tile floors, removing it from deep within the pores of the grout. In almost no time, we clean, restore and protect your tired-looking tiles, eliminating the expense that comes with total replacement.
First, we inspect your floors to determine the best treatment process. Then our trained technicians use a proprietary high-pressure rotary tool with dual rotating jets to clean your tile and grout. We combine this tool with the same truck-mounted steam/pressure cleaning that we use to deep clean your carpet. Then we apply specific cleaners that strip away any waxy buildup and extract the dirt from deep within the tile and pores of your grout.
It’s no secret that traffic can be heavy at certain times of the day and on special occasions. Spills and stains appear quickly, transforming your tile floors from beautiful to ugly. Our trained technicians use state-of-the-art equipment to create a high-pressure water and vacuum combination that suctions the dirt from deep within the tile and grout. The entire process takes about 30 to 60 minutes for an average-size room, but businesses with large tiled areas should allow for additional time. This, too, can vary based on several factors, including the size of the tile, amount of soil in the grout lines, and room configuration.
There are several factors to consider when deciding how often the Stanley Steemer tile cleaning should take place. But cleaning frequency is directly related to the amount of traffic. However, routine maintenance affects how often your tile and grout needs to be professionally cleaned.
The Stanley Steemer tile cleaning process may be gentle on your floors, but it is highly effective at getting the dirt out. Rely on Stanley Steemer tile cleaning to give your tile a makeover. Call the people who wrote the book on clean.
Why should I have my tile & grout cleaned?
Just like carpet, dirt builds up over time dulling your tile’s appearance and discoloring your grout. A thorough, professional tile & grout cleaning is the only way to remove the deep-down dirt.
How do you clean my tile & grout?
We use a high pressure rotary tool with dual rotating jets. This is combined with the same truck-mounted steam/pressure cleaning we use to deep clean your carpet. We use tile and grout specific cleaners that strip away any waxy build-up and remove the dirt embedded in the grout lines.
How often should I have my floor cleaned?
As with carpet, many factors must be considered when determining the frequency of cleaning. Foot traffic, children, pets, and routine floor maintenance will affect how often you need to have your tile & grout cleaned.
How long will it take to have my tile floor cleaned?
For an average size room (up to 300 square feet), it typically takes 30–60 minutes to clean the tile & grout. This can vary based on a number of factors including the size of the tile, amount of soil in the grout lines, and room configuration. If you choose to have sealant added, it typically takes 2–3 hours to complete the entire process.
Why should I have my grout lines sealed?
Grout is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Having a sealant applied will help create a protective barrier, giving you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout. The type of sealant you choose will determine the degree of stain resistance.
How long do I have to stay off the floor after sealant has been applied?
We recommend 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 we suggest that you avoid any liquid coming in contact with the sealant during that time.
Do I have to use a special floor cleaner if I have the sealant applied?
To preserve the life of the sealant, we recommend that you use a neutral cleaner on your floor. Rinsing after mopping will also help keep your floors looking their best. You will want to avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners as these can wear away at the sealant and cause it to break down prematurely.
What is clear seal?
Clear seal is an invisible layer of protection that penetrates into the pores of the grout. This gives you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout, however, it is not waterproof.
What is color seal?
Restore your grout to its original appearance with our premium Color Seal restoration service.
