3 things you probably didn’t know about tile and grout cleaning

Keeping your tiles and grout clean is important for both the appearance and health of your home, but when it comes to tile and grout cleaning though, there are some surprising insights that you might not be aware of. Here are three things you probably didn’t know when it comes to tile and grout cleaning.

3 things you probably didn’t know about tile and grout cleaning

1. Grout collects bacteria and mould

Why it matters:
The highly porous nature of grout means it can fast become the ideal breeding ground for bacteria and mould to grow on. This is especially true in damp areas like in bathrooms and kitchens where these microorganisms cause unpleasant odours and stains that can eventually lead to health issues and even more so for those with allergies or respiratory conditions.

The solution:
To eliminate or severely reduce these contaminants, we recommend regular professional cleaning. Professional cleaners use advanced steam cleaning techniques and specialised products to clean grout which removes harmful bacteria and mould.

2. DIY cleaning solutions can cause damage

Why it matters:
DIY cleaning solutions might seem like cost-effective, but sometimes they can do more harm than good. Sometimes they can work wonders, but it’s always a risk. In addition to this, a lot of over-the-counter products contain harsh chemicals that can eat away at your grout and even damage tile surfaces. And if you use abrasive scrubbers, you need to be careful not to scratch and dull your tiles as this will reduce their lifespan.

The solution:
Professional cleaners use safe, pH-balanced solutions that are tough on dirt but gentle on your tiles and grout. They are trained to select the right products and techniques for your specific type of tile which ensures a thorough clean without causing damage. This professional care helps maintain the integrity and appearance of your surfaces.

3. Professional cleaning extends tile lifespan

Why it matters:
Dirt and grime can wear down the surface of your tiles and grout over time which will lead to chips, cracks, and even discolouration. Without proper maintenance and care, you might need to replace your tiles sooner than expected which can cause extra costs and inconveniences.

The solution:
Regular professional cleaning can remove abrasive dirt particles, and this keeps your tiles and grout looking not just nice and clean, but it also extends their lifespan. This will lead to saving money on repairs and replacements in the long run.
