The Easiest to Clean Tile and Grout

Ceramic tile and grout certainly makes for an attractive flooring solution that many people prefer to keep in their homes or place of business. But it may also be the most neglected and overlooked floor when it comes to proper cleaning. Let’s discuss the best way to clean tile and grout.


Put Down The Brush


Far too many people choose the wrong method for tile and grout cleaning, and make the job much harder on themselves than it needs to be. You might be one of them, scrubbing vigorously over the tile and in between every grout line with a small brush. You may be using harsh, unsafe chemicals that can cause you irritation. We at The Steam Team are here to tell you that you don’t have to deal with this irritating process anymore.


The Steam Team offers a professional tile and grout cleaning service that will use the latest technology to restore your ceramic flooring to it’s very best state. The embedded bacteria and germs in your floor don’t stand a chance.


The Process


The cleaning process will begin with an inspection to find the dirty areas of the flooring and develop the proper solution for each area. Then the areas will be prepared by removing all furniture and setting up the area as to not disturb any carpeted or hardwood flooring nearby.


When the floor is ready, all dry soil will be removed by thoroughly sweeping and vacuuming. Then a high quality advanced tile cleaner will be sprayed over the entire surface of the tile, before it is thoroughly cleaned with hand brushes, mechanical rotating brushes and a self-contained pressure cleaning system. A rinse solution will be pumped through this machine, cleaning and sanitizing the entire floor.


After the floor as been completely cleaned and rinsed, the proper sealing/finishing needed for the tile will be applied. Then, our technicians will do a final walkthrough inspection and go over the results of your newly cleaned ceramic tile and grout.

The Easiest Way to Clean Granite

Granite is the perfect material for many surfaces in our homes- from the kitchen, to bathrooms, and even the floors, it’s versatile and beautiful all-in-one. While undoubtedly durable, natural stone can sometimes be tricky to clean (and keep that way). That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the easiest ways to care for and clean your granite, no matter where it is!

 

Install a Sealant

Before you even get to cleaning, make sure your granite is sealed with a proper sealant before placing anything on top of it. A sealant will keep any spills from harming your stone or causing stains over time. Now, a sealant won’t last forever so you may need to re-apply a sealant if your granite has been around for several years.

 

Create A Cleaning Routine

We all know by now how important it is to clean your floors, furniture, and everything else regularly in order to keep it maintained and lasting as long as possible. When it comes to granite or any other natural stone, the process is no different. However, you want to find a cleaning solution that is specific to the stone you’re cleaning so as to not damage any part of your surfaces or flooring.

 

Use the Right Equipment

Scrubbing your counters with a hard scrub brush is probably not the best idea for natural stone. Instead, try grabbing a microfiber cloth or another type of fabric cloth to work your way through those spots and stains.

 

Whether you’re replacing your countertops or looking to freshen up your old ones, we’re here for you. Our team of experienced technicians has the equipment and the knowledge to finish the job- and finish it right! So, if you’re looking for installation or a good ‘ol deep cleaning, count on The Steam Team to get it done.
