Tile & Grout Cleaning

One of the many aspects of cleaning I frequently obsess over, is tile and grout cleaning. I find grout cleaning to be incredibly frustrating. If you didn’t install the tile yourself, chances are you don’t even know the original color of your grout. Really gets you thinking, huh? Grout cleaning is a process, but by first understanding a little bit about grout and then using these tips, you can survive the grout cleaning process.

 

Understanding Grout

Here are a few points to help you grasp why grout cleaning is so gosh darn difficult:

  • Grout is porous: mold, dirt and other particles get trapped inside.
  • Grout has a noticeably rough texture, perfect for trapping dirt.
  • Grout can fade and become discolored. This happens gradually over time, most people don’t even notice.
  • Grout is known for trapping particles: kitchen grout traps grease, bathroom grout traps soap scum and mold, and floor tiles trap lots and lots of dirt.
  • Luckily, grout is very durable, just monstrous to clean.

 

DIY Cleaning

There are countless methods for grout cleaning, but almost all of them involve:

  1. Hours of research to find the perfect DIY blog
  2. Peculiar mixtures of chemicals
  3. Hours & HOURS of scrubbing on your hands and knees

While the right DIY method could be great for periodical upkeeep, we recommend seeking the help of the professionals to get that good deep clean. Certain chemicals can be harmful to the grout, and harmful to you if used incorrectly. Save yourself the stress, and get a professional cleaning. If only we could get our grout professionally cleaned as often as weekly; but that’s not always budget friendly so here are some grout cleaning tips:

 

Tips

  1. Use a vacuum: sweeping won’t be able to reach into the porous grout, but a vacuum can. Try using a vacuum a couple times a week to keep dirt from building up in your grout
  2. Try natural cleaning products: baking soda or vinegar can be great alternatives for harsher chemicals.
  3. Ask for a sealant with a professional cleaning: not only will this get your grout back its sparkle, but help protect it and keep it clean longer.

Tile and Grout has fast become a floor covering of choice in many newer homes. It’s selected because of it durability and beauty. However, it does have a major draw back; it can be impossible to clean!

A Few Words

From Our Incredible Clients

  • Second Review: Fantastic job again. I have an older dog who got very sick and without providing a lot of unpleasant details, she made a very big mess on our downstairs carpet. Mike made the time to come out and address the stains and then we scheduled for Sunrise to come back out again to do the whole house carpeting and a large area rug on wood flooring. Mike couldn't come out this time but the crew he sent did a great job. They made sure that the areas that had to dry quickly, did and the rest of the house was dry and ready not too much later. We are very happy with them and the work they do!First Review:We have a second home in Alta, Wy and haven't had our carpets cleaned by a professional since we have been here. With two large dogs and open windows in the summer it was time to get the carpets cleaned! People I asked locally couldn't recommend anyone so I "Googled" and found Sunrise. The person I spoke with on the phone was courteous and professional and we arranged an appointment with Mike. He was incredibly knowledgeable and spent a lot of time cleaning all of the carpeting as well as a large area rug in my home. I had found the beginning of a small leak the day before and after cleaning the carpet in that spot, he pulled it back, put fans under it to dry out the pad. The area rug and all of the carpets dried quickly - my upstairs rooms were dry before he left. The rug and the carpeting look and feel brand new! This truly was the best carpet cleaning experience I have ever had. I wish I could get them to come to California too!

  • We have used Sunrise Cleaning and Restoration for many years. Mike, Darren, Ron and his entire team have been together for a long time. It is nice to see the same faces with so much expertise over and over again. They are friendly and have great skill and knowledge when it comes to carpet cleaning. They are fair with their prices and go the extra mile to make sure that you are pleased with the outcome. We have a very large area rug that I asked them to clean while they were at our home and they did it for no extra charge. I would recommend them to anyone that needs carpet cleaning at a very fair price. Service was exceptional...!

  • I called Sunrise Cleaning with some questions about some wet carpet in my basement. They were so helpful. A worker over there named Mike had me email some pictures of the wet carpet. He promptly emailed me back with helpful information on how to handle the problem. He didn't try to sell me anything. He let me know it was something I could handle and gave me some great directions on how to proceed. If problems come up in the future, I will definitely call Sunrise.

  • Sunrise Cleaning and restoration has been cleaning our home and my Husband's office for years. I have always been pleased not only by the service given by Sunrise, but also that I can call at any time and Mike will have someone taking care of me as soon as possible, even if I do not have an emergency.I just had Mike come and clean grout in my kitchen, bathroom and mud and washroom. I had a few spots on an area rug and in our big family room. Not only did he clean the spots but the whole rug and family room at no additional cost.The grout in my kitchen looks wonderful. Mike called and asked me if I would be interested in a sealer for the floor. (He put an additional coat on for no charge).When I came home and saw my floor I was so excited. I was so unhappy about how awful my floor looked before he came, and was not sure how it would turn out. It was so worth having him clean and seal my floor and grout. I once again love the floor in my kitchen and will definitely be doing this every year from now on.Thank You Mike for making my job at home so much nicer and easier.Rhonda

  • Mike at Sunrise was great to work with on flood damage to a commercial building. He worked with our requests to provide what was needed and nothing more. When other companies did not answer their phone, he did. Mike discussed costs openly and was reasonable. I would recommend Sunrise above other restoration companies.

  • Sunrise Cleaning has a reputation for being the best in the area so we had them clean all the carpets in our house. They did an excellent job! With their great reputation, I was afraid they would be high priced, but the cost was very reasonable. We will definitely use their services again.
