Steam Cleaning Grout – Why The Grout Medic Uses Low-Pressure Steam

Low-pressure steam cleaning ensures that your grout isn’t chipped or cracked during the grout cleaning process.

If you have come to this blog in search of information about steam cleaning grout, we applaud you!  At The Grout Medic, we know that steam cleaning is the best deep grout cleaning solution.  Our professional grout cleaning service eliminates the negative and accentuates the positive for any type of tiled surface in homes or businesses.  What’s eliminated?  Dirt, germs, body oils, skin cells, food spill stains, mildew, and even mold!  You read that correctly.  Those are just some things that your porous grout could be harboring.  What’s left behind?  A totally rejuvenated tiled area, with beautifully-clean and brighter grout lines.  The secret to proper cleaning is not just in the use of steam, however.

Don’t damage your grout with improper cleaning methods.

Low-Pressure Steam is a Must

The Grout Medic uses only low-pressure water vapor to blast impurities out of your grout.  The combination of hot water (310-320°F) and low psi (600-800 pound-force per square inch) are powerful enough to produce thorough results, while gentle enough to avoid grout damage.  Large, truck-mounted steam cleaners should never be employed to clean surfaces inside homes.  Powerful steam cleaning machines produce up to three-and-a-half times the maximum psi of our low-pressure system.  Think of it in terms of packed sand on a beach.  It feels very strong underfoot.  Even so, a stormy tide will erode the surface of the sand.  The same goes for high-pressure cleaning for your grout.

Never attempt to use a high-pressure cleaner on your grout and tile.

Tiled surfaces are inherently strong if the grout has been properly applied and maintained.  Still, a strong tiled area can be rendered defenseless if not treated with attentive care.  Imagine blasting 1500-3,000 pound-force per square inch on your tiled floor or inside your shower.  This would not only be damaging to your grout lines, but could also break your tile in the process.  The effect produced would be catastrophic!
