What You Need to Know About Tile & Grout Cleaning, West Lake Hills, Texas

Having tile floors is one of the most recognizable hallmarks of an elegant home. But after enough time passes, they can accrue an unsightly amount of grime. While you might be able to superficially wipe the surface on your own, a professional tile and grout cleaning will restore the floor to its original pristine condition. Here is a guide to common questions residents ask about this type of cleaning. 

How Do Tiles Get Dirty?

Dirt comes to tiles the way it does to all floors—by people repeatedly tracking it in with their feet or shoes. What makes tile flooring even more susceptible is how porous they are, making it easy for the surface to absorb all types of grime. The grout also collects dust and dirt, which is why you might have noticed it becoming discolored over time. 

When Should You Schedule a Cleaning?

tile and grout cleaningIf you regularly conduct tile and grout cleanings with a mop, you’ll notice improvements when you’re done. Over time, however, the straightforward mop approach will yield diminishing returns since it isn’t capable of removing deeply embedded dirt in your flooring. For that reason, it’s important to schedule a professional cleaning around once a year. 

How Long Will It Take?

A typical time span for a cleaning will range from around 30 minutes to an hour and a half, depending on how much surface area in your home is filled with tile. A general rule of thumb is that each room should take around 25 to 30 minutes, but if you’ve also requested a sealing service, which helps repel liquids, the job will take a few hours longer.
