How to clean tile and grout

We all love how our tile and grout floors make our home look and feel. Especially if they are clean! Because then our home looks beautiful! 

Over the past 10 years, we have seen the sales and installation of Tile and Grout skyrocket! People have fallen in love with the new styles of porcelain and Travertine floors. They give us the durability and appearance we are looking for! 

The unfortunate part is the salesperson didn’t really give you any ideas on how to keep your beautiful tile floors clean. Mainly the grout! If they did, they mentioned using a steam mop or a Swiffer. Those products do have a place, but we do not recommend them for maintaining your tile and grout flooring. The main reason is the dirt and debris on the surface of the tile, when using a steam mop or Swiffer, gets pushed right into the grout lines and before you know it, your grout looks black!

Most people maintain their tile and grout like it is linoleum. You know, fill up the mop bucket or sink with some pine sol diluted water concoction and really scrub it up! You get on your hands and knees and scrub the grout lines and a couple of hours later you have a soapy residue concoction haze left on the surface of your tile and grout. It may look good for a week or two, but the problem is you have no way of extracting all the soapy residue and rinsing it well enough to stay clean for very long. Plus with some of the Google search cleaning baking soda concoctions, the white haze residue will within a few days, make your grout look marbled. Now Marble is beautiful. But marbled grout is not.

The best solution for maintaining your beautiful tile and grout flooring is to start with a clean slate. At Clean Johnny, we offer a vacuumed controlled pressure washing. All the cleaning is completed within a high-pressure cleaning head. No mess! No over-spray! No standing puddles in the middle of your kitchen! And the best part is your grout will look amazing again. And in most cases, better than when it was new. When the cleaning is completed, we recommend sealing the grout. With Travertine or other natural stone materials, the entire surface can be sealed along with the grout. 

Once you have a clean slate “so of speak”, your tile and grout will be much easier to maintain. Especially when we remove all the oils, cleaners, dirt, debris, food spills and whatever else gets spilled on your floor! 

After Clean Johnny cleans your tile and grout, maintaining it will be a breeze! After our service, your general maintenance will include vacuuming the surface at least once per week. When spills happen, use a non-ammonia based cleaning product (example: Windex) and a damp microfiber towel to wipe them up as they happen. You are welcome to use a steam mop or Swiffer, once the floor has been vacuumed first. Although we do not recommend a full mopping as you will only be spreading the dirt from one place to the other, in some cases that may be a necessity for your living environment. But keep in mind, with mopping the main objective is not to use too much cleaning products. Because if you do, you’ll have to hire Clean Johnny too soon. Most cases, when maintained as suggested above, our clients will obtain beautiful clean tile and grout for 3-5 years. At Clean Johnny, we do offer a Hard Surface Maintenance Service. Please call our office (0424979667 for the details.
