These types of floors have been used for years and years. Yet, over that period of time, there have been common issues that keep coming up. The problem with these types of floors is that they tend to build up a lot of dirt in the joint points between the tiles. The common way that people clean them, moping, is just not going to be an effective way to bring the floor back to its original state. With that said, we believe that we can do a lot to help these types of floors get back to what they used to be!
How We Clean
With these types of floors, there are two main ways that we like to clean them. Number one is by pressure washing them. What we will be doing, in this case, is literally hosing down the floor to remove all of the dirt build-up that has accumulated in different areas. The second favorite method that we are going to be using is steam cleaning. This can also help to loosen up a lot of the dirt that has been living in your floors for quite some time. We usually apply this method to these types of floors that are located indoors.
How Often Should I Clean?
This is actually a very hard question to answer. There are a lot of things that we would have to take into account. Number one being, where the floor is located. If you want to have perfectly clean floors, but the tile and grout floors that you have are outdoors and neighbor grass and dirt areas you are probably going to have to clean them constantly. If the floor is indoors you can take a lot more time from visit to visit. It really depends on how you see it, and what your goals happen to be!
This Should Not Alter Your Normal Cleaning
We get a lot of questions from people after providing this service for them. Most of them involve methods to ensure that the surface stays squeaky clean for a longer time. The best thing that you can do is continue with your regular cleaning methods. Just because moping the floor is not going to remove all of the gunk from the grout it does not mean that there is no purpose in mopping these floors. If you do that, there is a good chance that these areas are going to stay clean for a longer period of time.

For large tile and grout floors, we are usually going to want to steam clean these areas. Just because it is an easier way to stay on top of things. Trying to pressure wash these large areas can go wrong pretty quickly. This is something we don’t want to see happen. Also, we would understand if you need to have us clean these areas on a consistent basis. If that is the case give us a call and we can figure things out together. We can also clean your upholstery.
