Tile and Grout Cleaning
February 15, 2013
When we moved to Fresno a year and a half ago my husband and I decided to replace most of the carpet in the house with tile. We had kids, pets, and now a swimming pool, so it really seemed like a “no-brainer” at the time. I still don’t regret the decision. I can’t even begin to imagine what it would look like if everything that has fallen on my tile had actually landed on carpet. We’ve had quite a few accidents, the worst being a bottle nail polish.
My expectations of tile, however, have not quite come to fruition. My conclusion is that grout is nearly impossible to keep clean. Wiping up spills fast is a total lifesaver, of course, but no matter what I do, in the long run my grout looks dirty. Sigh.
Sometimes the only solution out there is to bite the bullet and call in the professionals. So once a year I look around and find that my efforts are finally moot. I need help. And where do I go to find the best tile cleaner in Fresno? Why, Aaron’s Quality Cleaners of course!
Aaron’s Quality Cleaners offers an effective and safe solution to dirty tile and grout. They can even clean the grout in counter tops. They use a truck mount system, which is a must not only for great tile cleaning, but for the best carpet cleaning as well. With a truck mount they are able to heat the water to extreme temperatures. This not only helps in breaking down grease and soil, but is useful in that it is hot enough to kill bacteria and germs in the grout.
Grout is comprised of a mixture of cement and sand. It is extremely porous and has a tendency to collect and hold dirt and germs. This is what makes the grout look so dirty and also what speeds the decaying process, causing your grout to break down prematurely.
So, this preheated water is used in combination with a pre-spray product known for its effective cleaning and emulsifying action on hard surfaces. It permeates deep into grout and tile, cleaning them and extracting all the grime. The dirty water is then funneled back to the truck where it is stored in a sealed, safe tank. It is later disposed of in accordance with EPA guidelines. Tile and grout are left looking cleaner than one would have thought possible.
And now Aaron’s Quality Cleaners offers grout sealing as well. So you can keep your grout looking new that much longer. A sealer inhibits spills from infiltrating into the porous surface of your grout, giving you time to clean it up before a stain sets in. It repels both water and oil based liquids and helps to avoid stains caused by most food and beverages. Sealer is an excellent buffer to the soil and impurities that grout has a tendency to absorb.
If I had it to do all over again, I would still choose tile for our home. Yes, the grout gets dirty, but now I have a solution. When you want to turn your dirty grout and tile into clean grout and tile, look no further than the best tile cleaner in Fresno. Aaron’s Quality Cleaners!
