Can You Steam Clean Tile?

Tile Cleaning

Most people think of steam cleaning when they notice their carpet begins to look dirty, but steam cleaning works for more than just carpet. In fact, you can steam clean many aspects around your home - from furniture to drapery, and of course - flooring. So maybe the better question here is; what can’t you steam clean?

How Steam Cleaning Tile Works

You may already know that grout is porous, meaning it absorbs spills and stains extremely easy - but you may not know that tile can become stained too. Not only does steam cleaning lift these stains and clean the tile (and grout), but The Steam Team finalizes the process by applying a sealant over the flooring.

 

 

So let’s talk about how steam cleaning actually cleans tile and grout:

 

The machine uses high-pressure water to flush the stains in conjunction with a vacuum that extracts the water from the floor, removing the stains altogether. Not only does steam cleaning remove stains, though, it also balances the pH level of your floor.

 

In some cases, grout can become discolored - especially if it hasn’t been cleaned for a while. But, the grout can undergo a colorizing process to restore its original color and bring the flooring back to life.

Why Should You Hire a Professional?

While you can rent steam cleaning machines from your local hardware store or even buy your own - there’s nothing like a thorough cleaning from a professional company. Often times, these machines are mounted in the vehicles, allowing for added pressure behind the cleaning - unlike other machines. Even further, your technician undergoes extensive training, becomes certified, and has years of experience.


Bottom line; you can’t go wrong hiring a professional to clean your tile and grout! If you notice that it’s starting to look dull or visibly stained, give us a call here at The Steam Team - we’re always happy to help.
