Is It Time for a Professional Tile and Grout Cleaning?

November 18, 2020

If the grout and tiles of your Ithaca, New York, home or business never come clean, it may be time to call a professional. Over time, grout becomes stained and harbors grime, bacteria, and mold. Water can seep under tiles and stone if the grout is improperly sealed, a fact that you may not know until extensive damage has occurred. ServiceMaster of the Tri-Counties in New York provides professional grout cleaning and home restoration services to refresh tiles and grout.

Signs That It Is Time to Call a Restoration Professional

If the floor and wall tiles in your home or office look dingy or dirty even with repeated cleaning, grime and mold may be embedded in the grout and the tiles. Most household cleaning products cannot restore the shine and color to tiles once they reach this state. Additionally, mineral build-up on the surface creates a barrier that seals in grime. You may notice black or brown stains on grout, grout that does not adhere properly, or discolored tiles.

Professionals have specialized training to identify the reasons tiles are stained, clean them, and seal them to enhance maintenance.

What We Do

When we come to your premises, we conduct a thorough inspection to identify soiled areas. We tailor our six-step cleaning program to address the specific issues identified during the inspection. We pre-treat heavily stained areas to loosen deeply embedded grime. We leave this treatment on as long as required to ensure thorough cleaning.

We use a high-pressure extractor that removes dirt, mold, and stains from grout, tiles, hidden pockets, and corners that can harbor grime. Technicians use special tools to ensure high-traffic areas, areas along baseboards, and hard-to-reach crevices are also cleaned. Tiles are then rinsed with water.

We completely dry tiles and grout to keep mold and bacteria from growing back. Customers can opt to have grout resealed. After we finish, we make sure you know how to contact us. We provide follow-up services to make sure you are completely satisfied with our work.

ServiceMaster of the Tri-Counties has provided home restoration services since 1995. Our technicians are certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification, a leading international non-profit organization in the restoration industry.
