Tile and grout are the basic ground to walk on in any property. Professional tile and grout cleaning is an absolute requirement. It becomes challenging with time, as more dust accumulates on the tiles. Carpets make it worse. This is because tile and grout cleaning is usually ignored after carpet cleaning.
As a matter of fact, professional tile and grout cleaning is required from time to time. Our experts at Rivera’s Cleaning solutions have put down the answers to a few FAQs to help.
How often should the tile and grout be professionally cleaned?
Professional tile and grout cleaning services recommend cleaning it at least once in two years. Most of the time, the tiles are covered with carpets. Thus only tiles which are exposed to air require more cleaning.
Tile and grout can accumulate dust over time. Carpets cannot completely eliminate the need of a professional cleaning though. Tiles cleaned regularly with a mild cleanser require less effort.
Whatever the nature of your tile and grout be, we at Rivera’s cleaning solutions guarantee best results. Our technicians are well trained and equipped with the latest technology to provide great results.
How long does it take for professional tile and grout cleaning?
It typically depends the most on the area that needs to be cleaned. Also, the nature of tile and amount of cleaning required matters too. On an average, for an average sized home, it takes about 3-4 hours.
If you choose to have your grout treated with a sealant, it takes time before you can use it. The technician will first clean the tile and grout. Upon drying, the sealant will be applied. The sealant takes at least a day to be properly cured.
Do I need to prepare for anything before the cleaning crew arrives?
Yes. We ask you to pick up any objects lying on the floor. You will be required to pick up toys, plants, rugs, and other small furniture. The area to be cleaned needs to be clear of any objects.
However, our technicians are happy to assist you with moving heavy furniture from the floors. The carpet covering also needs to be removed. It can be placed back only after complete drying of the floor.
When can I start using the floor after the cleaning is complete?
You can start walking on the floors 30 minutes after the cleaning is finished. It is best to avoid walking on freshly cleaned tile. This is necessary as it might lead to accumulation of dust and dirt on freshly cleaned tiles. We advise you to not step on wet tiles as it might be slippery.
It is necessary that you take care not to spill any liquid on cleaned tiles and grout. If you’ve opted for grout sealing, Rivera’s cleaning solutions suggest waiting for a day. The sealant takes 24 hours to cure and set in. This ensures the proper sealing of the grout.
