New ceramic tile on the floor or the walls of a bathroom or kitchen can look gorgeous, but over time, the tile can get to look a bit less than its best and the grout can start to look downright dingy. This is when it might be a good idea to hire a tile cleaning service in Fort Wayne IN.
A couple times each week, it’s a good idea to sweep or vacuum tile floors to keep dirt and sand from scratching the surface of the tiles. After sweeping, mop with hot water and a mild detergent or a mix of vinegar and water using a rag mop rather than a sponge mop to minimize the risk of dirty water soiling the grout. Clean the grout itself with a special grout cleaner, as the grout being dirty is what tends to make the whole floor look filthy, even if it’s regularly cleaned.
Regular cleaning can help minimize stains, but over time most floors get a bit stained, especially the grout. Hiring a Tile Cleaning Service in Fort Wayne IN can save a homeowner a lot of time and effort and get rid of these stains. This type of service will have the proper cleansers and the know-how to use them for the best results. Otherwise, a homeowner will need to spend quite a bit of time scrubbing and may still be left with dirty grout, although a mix of baking soda and water applied overnight and scrubbed in the morning before resealing the grout can be effective for some types of stains.
Using a professional service will minimize the risk of using the wrong product and damaging the grout, which can lead to tiles moving and breaking, after which they need to be replaced. This type of service can also help prevent the growth of mold, which is bad for health and can cause damage to the flooring. Floors will get cleaner than with amateur cleaning, and they’re likely to last longer as a result.
