Chem-Dry of Victoria provides professional tile cleaning that blasts the dirt and bacteria from your tile, grout, and stone, and can restore your tile to a brand new look and feel.
Is Sealant Worth It?
When it comes to tile cleaning, one of the most important things to understand is grout sealant. Grout is a material made of sand and water that is used to fill in gaps and spaces between tiles. While it is an effective and inexpensive way to achieve a clean tile look, it must be sealed correctly in order to last. This is because grout is porous and can be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, fungus, and dirt. By applying a grout sealant, you are providing protection against these potential problems.
Sealants work by creating a barrier between the grout and the outside world, preventing dirt, moisture, and other contaminants from seeping in. This not only helps to keep your tile looking clean and new but also helps to prolong the life of your grout. When choosing a grout sealant, be sure to select one that is compatible with the type of tile and grout you have. Once applied, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper care and maintenance. With proper care, your tile and grout will continue to look great for years to come!
Give ‘Hotspot’ Rooms in Your Home Extra Protection
Do you have a beautiful tile in your shower that you want to preserve for as long as possible? Is your bathtub your haven? If so, keeping your tile protected should be a priority. Because the moisture in your bathroom acts as a breeding ground for mold and mildew, give these types of ‘hotspot’ rooms extra care and attention.
Maintain the quality and overall appearance of tile and stone in these ‘hotspots’ with a sealant so that your home can be the happiest and healthiest living environment possible. Why be so adamant about sealing? When you seal dirty grout, stains develop that become near impossible to remove.
As a rule of thumb, reseal your grout once a year for high-traffic homes, and anytime it’s been deep cleaned, reseal it immediately. Do you have out-of-the-way, low-traffic rooms in your home? Make sure not to neglect these areas by resealing them every 4-5 years.
Tile is An Investment
Don’t you deserve to get as much out of it as you can—for as long as you can? Sometimes, regularly scheduled DIY maintenance isn’t enough. Sometimes, tile and/or stone deserve a professional, deep clean to improve its lifespan and allow you the peace of mind of a clean, safe house for you and your family.
