Tile, Stone, and Grout Cleaning

Hiring a professional to clean the grout and tile of your home is a great way to save the agony of getting on your hands and knees for a day of scrubbing. While your tile may still be dingy looking after hours of scrubbing by hand, a professional cleaning service can usually get your tile sparkling in a relatively short amount of time. Before you hire a tile and grout cleaning company, you should do your research. Here is a list of questions to ask the tile and grout cleaning company before making your decision.

  • What is your experience with grout and tile cleaning? - For the best tile cleaning results, you?ll want to work with a company that has extensive experience with this type of cleaning and performs this task as their main business. Be sure to ask the contractor or company how many jobs they have performed in the past involving cleaning of your specific tile. Types of tiles can include ceramic, porcelain, slate, granite, marble, etc.
  • What kind of techniques and equipment do you use? - Different cleaning jobs require different techniques and tools. Many companies use a combination of steam cleaning and vacuuming to get your home looking great. They may even hand-scrub the tile and grout to loosen dirt before using a more intense cleaning method. Whatever specific technique they use, look for a tile cleaning company that starts out by inspecting your tile and grout, and then pre-treats the dirty areas with a cleaning solution before deep cleaning. You should also ask if the company will seal your grout after cleaning as this is an important step that can keep your tile looking cleaner longer. Finally, depending on your personal preferences, you may want to ask if the company uses green or eco-friendly cleaning solutions.
  • Can you provide an in-home or over the phone? - Many contractors are willing to go out to the home to provide a free quote. In other cases, a free quote can be provided over the phone if you are able to tell the company your square footage, type of tile, and size of the tiles. In addition, ask if they charge extra to seal the grout and tile after cleaning.
  • Are you licensed and insured? - As is the case with any type of contractor you hire, ALWAYS ask if the company is licensed and insured in your state. This shows that company is not only credible but also acts as a safety measure in case anything were to happen during the project.
