Many homes and businesses have tiled surfaces, whether in private kitchens and baths, or public areas, where foot traffic constantly treads upon tiled floors. What many home and business owners do not realize, is that tiled areas are not “set it and forget it” surfaces. Are they strong and durable? Yes, your tile can last for many years without issue, but the life of your tile depends much upon the care that you give it. The Grout Medic offers the best tile care in the industry, and we can also correct any tile issues that you may have.
We have all done it. We perform weekly or bi-weekly shower tile cleaning with chemicals like bleach or even home remedies that include a mixture of detergent and vinegar. Thing is, these are exactly the products that we should keep away from our tile and grout. Yes, those store-bought cleaners that claim to be specifically for showers, more often than not, are much too harsh for cleaning your tile. Add to that scouring brushes and pads, and you are armed to grind away the protective seal of your tile and grout, leaving your showers and baths susceptible to water damage and mold build-up. We never recommend cleaning your tile and grout with vinegar – environmentally friendly, but also acidic.
The simple answer to safely cleaning your tile is to take advantage of professional tile cleaning services by The Grout Medic. Even if you can’t readily see the contaminants that have built up on the surface of your grout and tile, they are there. At The Grout Medic, we recommend a professional tile cleaning once or twice yearly, especially for your high-traffic tiled surfaces, such as floors and showers. Our tile cleaning is 100% GREEN and safe for your family, free of harsh chemicals that fill the air, unlike other cleaners.
With The Grout Medic’s tile cleaning service, your tile will receive the TLC it deserves to promote the health and longevity of your tile and grout. Even if your tile requires a pre-treatment with your professional cleaning, know that the pre-treatment we use is pH balanced and free of harmful chemicals. With our portable, low-pressure water vapor cleaning system, your tile will be immediately revived and rejuvenated.
It’s nearly inevitable. At some point, aging grout and tile will require specialized attention to repair loose tiles. Even tiled surfaces that are well-maintained have a shelf life. Tiles might become loose, break, or even fall away from your tiled surface. If your tiled area has even one loose tile, this is no small issue. You see, that shifting or broken tile opens up your entire surface to further damage. Call on The Grout Medic’s tile specialists to tackle the task of your tile repair, no matter how small. It is imperative that failing tiles are replaced immediately. Replacing one tile or a few tiles now will save you a lot of money over eventual total tile replacement and/or water damage repair that the failing tiles have caused.
If you have consulted with a tile contractor, and been advised to completely replace all your tile, call on The Grout Medic for a second opinion!
