Keeping your tile floors clean is very important, but one crucial aspect of cleaning your tile floors is cleaning the grout. The grout is the water, cement, and sand mixture that holds the tile into place. Because of the porous nature, it absorbs and takes on the color of the solids and liquids that come in contact with it. Thankfully, cleaning your grout is possible. Here are three reasons why cleaning it is so important.
Kills Bacteria And Germs
A lot of bacteria and dangerous germs can live in your grout when it isn’t cleaned properly. This can cause mold and mildew to form, both of which can be harmful to you and your family. However, when it is professionally cleaned, these harmful germs and bacteria are killed and completely removed. This can help you feel much more comfortable walking on your floors with bare feet, having small children crawl across your tile, and simply living in your home.
Gives Your Floors A “New” Look
Not only is unclean grout dangerous, but it also doesn’t look great either. The dirt gets into the pores of the tile and the liquids that spill and can actually discolor the grout itself. Professional cleaning services remove these stains using high-alkaline cleaners. The higher pH level of these cleaners help to remove the discoloration from the tile, along with oil stains that can be incredibly difficult to remove with other cleaners. Your grout will be restored to its former color and will have a clean and new look once again.
Extends The Life
If your grout is cleaned regularly, this can help to extend the life of your tile floor in general. It will stay in much better condition and will not break down from the mold and mildew. This helps you to save money in the long run because regular tile cleaning is much more cost effective than replacing the grout in your floor.
