Sweeping and Mopping


When it comes to keeping tile clean, sweeping and mopping are essential to your cleaning routine. You simply can’t escape it! Use your trusty floor cleaner, as long as it’s approved for tile and grout, and get to mopping! Make sure you’re changing out the water as frequently as it becomes dirty to prevent smudges on your flooring.


Scrubbing


Every now and then, you have to get out the old scrub brush and get to scrubbing on your tile floor! Just make sure you aren’t using anything that’s abrasive, so that you don’t scratch or damage your beautiful tile!


Steam Cleaning


Steam cleaning is by far the best method of cleaning for tile and grout. Only a steam cleaner can reach deep within the pores of grout and extract dirt and debris, and by using nothing except hot water and high water pressure! We always recommend steam cleaning over other methods of cleaning.


If your tile and grout is in need of some TLC, don’t hesitate to give The Steam Team a call! We’re available 24/7 to come help you out. You don’t even have to worry about scrubbing your tile; you can skip that step altogether and move onto steam cleaning! So don’t wait! Give The Steam Team a call today.




Marble Polishing 101: Call in the Professionals

Marble is a natural material that is used to produce beautiful kitchen countertops, tile floors, marble bathroom vanities, marble wall tile and even columns. If you have marble in your home, you probably want to do everything in your power to take the very best care of it and ensure that it stays clean and undamaged. If you follow our advice carefully, you’ll be able to do just that!

 

Why Professionals?

When it comes to any home cleaning, the job will almost always be done better with the help of professionals. This is especially the case when it comes to marble polishing. If you’re wondering why, it’s because marble can be rather tricky to clean and maintain.

 

When you’re cleaning or polishing other surfaces, you might be able to just buy any generic product or use your own DIY concoction, this is not the case with marble. That is because marble is more sensitive to acid than other surfaces, making it more sensitive to cleaning products and even some foods that contain acid like citrus products and sodas. Marble is also softer and more porous than other stone, meaning it scratches and etches much more easily than other surfaces might. For these reasons, marble requires great care- and you can never go wrong with a professional!
