Whisk away the dirt on tile with steam

While it is possible to clean tile and grout yourself, it’s best to hire a professional to do it. A pro can do a better job with a steam cleaning tool than you can by hand. You can also be assured that the tile is sanitized as well as cleaned when a pro tackles the job. The cleaning team at Douglas Flooring in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, can take care of this tedious job for you. We are a tile/grout cleaning service provider that can make tile in your home look new again.

Cleaning tile

Tile is cleaned with a rotating high-pressure multi-jet steam cleaning tool that is hooked up to a truck-mounted steam cleaning machine. There is no splash or overspray involved with this task so you don’t need to be concerned about the cleaning team creating a mess. The work is contained in the tile area since the high-pressure steam ejects from under a cleaning disk. Dirt is whisked away with any extra cleaning solution. Also, high-pressure steam is capable of deeply penetrating the grout between the tiles. Mold, bacteria, and harmful pathogens that are often found in the porous material are removed during the cleaning process.

Grout sealant

Sanded grout, or grout that contains sand particles, can be sealed after it is cleaned. A sealant acts as a barrier against staining and prevents moisture from seeping into the grout and under the tiles. Sealers are only used on water-based grout, not grout that is made with epoxy. Sealants are sprayed on or applied directly to the grout with a brush or roller. Penetrating sealers soak right into the grout. This helps to create an additional tint when you apply grout colorant to the grout or if you want the original color to be darker. A non-pigmented penetrating sealer won’t change the color. Keep in mind that cracks or crumbles in the grout lines need to be repaired before a sealer is used.
