How To Prevent Stains from Your Tile & Grout

We all know that tile and grout can be difficult to keep clean, especially since grout is so porous! It easily absorbs spills and stains. But alas, there are several things we can do to help out, including relying on the professionals for some professional care. Below you’ll find three great tips for preventing stains on your tile and grout, and you’ll learn how The Steam Team can help, too.


Immediately Tend to Stains


This tip is essential! It’s imperative that you tend to spills immediately upon discovering them. The quicker you clean them up, the easier it will be to prevent a stain from forming on your beautiful tile and grout. So start here, and you’ll be well on your way to properly caring for your flooring!


Develop a Regular Cleaning Routine


It’s also important to develop a regular cleaning routine of sweeping, mopping, and occasionally steam cleaning. Steam cleaning is a great method of cleaning to use on grout! Using nothing but extremely hot water and high water pressure, a professional-grade steam cleaner can easily extract dirt and grime from deep within the pores of grout. It’ll shine up your tile, too! We always recommend steam cleaning when it comes to caring for your flooring.


Use Grout Sealant


Here’s our last tip! It’s always best to install grout sealant when it comes to preventing stains on tile and grout! It serves as a protective barrier between the pores of grout, and spills. It’s essential if you want to keep your tile and grout looking its best!

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.

Make Your Bathroom Sparkle with Steam Team Tile Cleaning

Bathrooms are notorious for building up soap scum, grime, dirt, and other substances we don’t like thinking about, like bacteria. They can be difficult to keep clean, especially if you have a large family- then the shower gets way more use, as does the sink, the toilet, and the floor faces more foot traffic.
