Cleaning Bathroom Tile Through the Humidity

Tile is one of the best materials for areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms for multiple reasons. First, it makes for easy-to-clean messes and it can withstand high temperatures and humidity. However, depending on the amount of space between your tiles, you might need to pay a little extra attention to these areas. The grout between your tiles is far more porous than the tile and is unfortunately susceptible to stains from spills and other messes.


Avoid Harsh Chemicals

Start off with the most simple, basic, least acidic cleaning solution and work your way up, if you need to. You can try mixtures of vinegar and water, or a paste of baking soda. This is the hard part: use a stiff cleaning brush to scrub the grout, putting in your best effort! Don’t forget to rinse the grout with water, and thoroughly dry the area to prevent mold growth.


Always Look for Mold

Small areas with such high humidity make the perfect environments for mold growth. Whenever you’re cleaning your bathrooms, make sure to look in those hard-to-reach places for signs of mold (areas such as behind the toilet, under the sink, and around the bathtub or shower).


Steam Cleaning Tile & Grout

Steam cleaning is an extremely effective and efficient way to clean tile and grout. Using only pressurized water and intensely hot steam, a steam cleaner easily extracts grime from the pores of grout- and you don’t have to put in nearly as much effort! Consider either renting a steam cleaning machine, or hiring the professionals to come out and restore your bathroom to its original, pristine condition.


Our professionals are highly trained and use the latest equipment to tackle tile and grout cleaning. If you’ve encountered mold or think you may see the beginnings of mold growth, give us a call and we’ll come out to take a look and begin treatment if need be.


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.
