Cleveland Tile and Grout Cleaning Company FAQs
Tile and grout floors are something homeowners always look towards caring for. That’s why we hire professional tile and grout cleaning regularly for our floors, but maybe you have questions about the tile and grout cleaning process. Maybe you are concerned with how your tile came out or if a certain method of tile and grout cleaning works. At Antonius Bros., we’ve heard many of these questions before and want to supply you with answers to a handful of our clients’ questions through our FAQ.
Q: I have been told that bleaching the grout lines will make them look whiter? Is this true?
A: Bleach will make them brighter, but you may need to check with the grout manufacturer before starting to be sure the color wasn’t dyed, bleach will certainly remove the color.
Q: I have what looks like water stains on my tiles in my kitchen, what could they be? How can I remove them?
A: ‘Water’ stains could be several different things, depending on the particular tile you have. Most of the time, water or mineral deposits can be removed with either polishing with honing powders and a hog hair pad or by using specific acid cleaners. Please DO NOT attempt either of these without proper training as you may permanently damage the tile. To remove these stains it may be necessary to contact the professional who supplied you with this report.
Q: I bought a ‘steamer’ to clean my tile floors, it works pretty well, but some of the grout lines are cracking? What should I do?
A: First, I would cease all ‘steaming’ of that floor until you have the grout repaired. Moisture that gets between the tile and sub-floor will be trapped under your tiles and will expand and loosen tile from the concrete or sub-floor.
Rinsing the floor is a good thing BUT, you need the right products to make sure you are not damaging the sealer. There is one product available that will actually seek out any weak areas in the sealer and fill them in while you’re cleaning! Ask your tile and grout professional about it!
Q: How long will sealers last?
A: That depends on the sealer, the method of application and the frequency and type of maintenance. Anywhere from six months to ten years or more.
