Does My Floor Need Professional Cleaning?

Yes, twice a year for most residential homes and monthly for commercial facilities, all depending on traffic. The longer floors go without cleaning by a professional company, the darker the grout. When you initially install tile, the grout is attractive. However, over time, grout will absorb dirt and other spills and eventually look unpleasant to the eyes.
If your beautifully installed grout has become stained, cracked, and has trapped dirt, our six-step tile and group cleaning process gets your grout clean and keeps it looking its best.
Here is what we provide:

  • A preliminary inspection of your tiled areas.
  • Using green cleaning products, we pre-spray spots and stains

TIPS TO BEAUTIFUL TILE FLOORS

  • Vacuum or sweep floors before mopping to remove as much dirt as possible, especially dirt that has settled into the grout.

  • Mop tile regularly with a neutral cleaner. Rinse the mop in fresh water after mopping a small section. Then, remove excess water from the floors by mopping with a dry mop.

  • Clean spills quickly to avoid staining floors.

  • Avoid scratching and scraping your floors with actions like dragging chairs or furniture. Scratches and cracks in the floor easily capture dirt.

  • Don’t use finish wax, ammonia-based cleaners or bleach, which can damage floors.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

High traffic gradually dulls the floors and the grout becomes dark with dirt. Regular mopping only removes surface-level dirt.

For a 300 square-foot area, cleaning generally takes 60 to 90 minutes. If you choose to have the grout sealed, we recommend waiting 24 hours after rinsing to apply sealer so the sealer will adhere properly. Grout sealing itself takes two to three hours. Time varies based on tile size, the amount of soil in the grout and room configuration.

The team at ServiceMaster will work with you to schedule a time after hours or we can develop a customized program to clean your tile in sections.  Our technician will let you know of dry times that you will need to be aware of.

Tile floors are easy to clean, and we recommend using a neutral cleaning agent. Please ask for information about specific ServiceMaster of Charleston products.

After tile and grout is cleaned, you may notice a faint scent. The amount of time it takes for the odor to dissipate is usually within an hour but varies based on air circulation, heat and humidity.

To keep the tile floors in your property looking their best, we recommend having them professionally cleaned every year, depending on the amount of traffic, soil and regular floor maintenance.

Stay off of freshly cleaned tile floors for at least 30 minutes. Avoid getting any liquid on the floor for 24 hours until the sealant cures completely if grout sealing is included as part of the service.
