The trouble with dirty tiles

What else can make a floor look unsightly than dirty tiles or tiles that seem to have permanent dirt marks on them?

Old house tiles collect dirt and mold, especially in places where they may be chances of water leakage – such as the bathroom and the kitchen. Not only does this look visually unpleasant, but it also gives an impression of untidiness and carelessness to someone visiting your home for the first time. It just looks like you don’t give enough attention to your home cleaning – and that is definitely not an impression you want to give.

Another problem with dirty tiles is that sometimes the dirt gets stuck deep into the grout, making it almost impossible to clean with a mop. The wetness may also give rise to mold, which can further complicate the cleaning process as mold is very difficult to remove and it produces thousands of spores which can easily change into root when they come in contact with water.

If you have mold in the tiles, then you and your family are under threat of developing various health problems such as asthma, nosebleeds, sore throats, suppression of immune system (this will make you vulnerable to infection), flu, headaches, and depression.

Therefore, tiles that are not being cleaned properly are a problem that needs to be solved before it starts affecting your health, or your reputation to maintain the cleanliness of your house.

Store bought cleaning chemicals don’t always solve the problem

Most people opt for store bought chemical cleaners and detergents to shine and clean their tiles but they don’t always work well, especially when the dirt has embedded into the tiles. Sometimes, when there is dark mold, it even affects the color of the tiles and no matter how many times you mop it with the detergents, or soak it with the cleaners; your tiles just won’t look like they once did – and your grout is going to look quite ugly.

Moreover, the chemicals in store-bought cleaners and detergents can be toxic which can cause damage to your health in various ways, including affecting the endocrinological and neurological systems of the body.

Advantages of professional tile and grout cleaning

You know you need professional cleaning when the dirt on your tiles is persistent and does not come out or even decrease a little bit, despite numerous attempts. This can be a bit of a despairing situation, which is the reason enough for you adopt the route of employing a professional cleaning service.

Professional tile and grout cleaners will easily help your tiles and surfaces to get their shine back. Furthermore, if your tile happens to consist of natural materials like granite, marble, slate, travertine or Saltillo, then there are plenty of natural solutions available for them.

Another thing that professional tile and grout cleaners can do is use powerful technology to sanitize and completely clean your floors, your showers, and countertops by efficiently removing dirt, grease and countertops.

There are some new tile and grout cleaning processes that utilize heat, a newly formulated, specialized cleaning solution, and vacuum power to completely eradicate the dirt and microorganisms; this job is usually completed with a high pressure rinse that completes the job.

Once this tile and grout cleaning procedure has been successfully completed, professional tile and grout technicians apply a penetrating, permanent and effective sealer to protect grout against mildew, dust, grime and staining for up to two years.

There are plenty of grout cleaning options for your kitchen, bathroom, and other places. A special grout cleaning and sealing process will ensure complete protection.You also have the option of getting a protective seal (colored or clear) on your tiles, after they have been cleaned, for protection against staining and mildew.

 Jen and team were so great to work with. We had a hard task at hand removing adhesive residue from residential hard wood floors. We couldn’t find anyone else up for the task and NYC Steam Cleaning got the job done. Highly recommend this service and team for any floor, carpet, rug, upholstery cleaning needs.

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
