Taking Care of Tile and Grout

Posted - March 16, 2022

When it comes to taking care of tile and grout, regular maintenance is extremely important. People often assume that tile flooring requires very little upkeep and end up neglecting it unintentionally. This can lead to big problems, especially concerning grout. At Commercial Cleaning Contractors, we are often called in to save the day when tile and grout cleaning has been overlooked for a bit too long.



Tile and grout can become stained if they aren’t properly maintained (with the right cleaning products) and — more critically — grout can become soft and start to deteriorate if it isn’t properly sealed. At CCC, our tile and grout cleaning services include applying sealant to grout to protect it from staining and breaking down.

If you don’t know whether your grout is sealed, you can perform a quick water penetration test. Simply drop some water onto the grout, and observe. If the water pools up, your grout is sealed. If the water soaks into the grout, it is not sealed (or is sealed poorly). In the latter scenario, you should call a professional to seal your grout right away, or risk permanent damage.

At CCC, we are IICRC certified natural stone and tile specialists with the knowledge and equipment we need to keep your grout and tile looking good while significantly extending its service life. Our tile and grout cleaning services include deep cleaning with our truck mounted unit (which utilizes high heat and pressure), various mechanical scrubbing operations, meticulous hand scrubbing to remove grout stains, and sealant application for long term protection.

The longer you wait to clean and seal your tile and grout, the more difficult it will become to remove embedded soil and avoid lasting stains and damage.
