Frequently Asked Questions
- A: To keep your tiles and grout looking new, Tile Cleaners® recommend sealing your grout lines with our recommended proven water based impregnating grout sealer, Deepshield™ Penetrating Grout Sealer. We also always recommend cleaning each week with a damp microfibre cloth and a mild detergent to remove any dirt or grime from the tiled surface. Any strong detergents( strong acid or alkali) may affect the sealer, mild detergents and pH neutral substances are strongly recommended.

Other FAQs :
- Q: Do you use chemical cleaners?
- A: Some cleaning situations require pre-treatment using a chemical cleaner. Our chemical cleaner contains no acid or bleach as these ingredients can do long term damage to your grout. The solution is then followed by our vapor technology removing the discoloration and any chemical residue from the grout joint. However in some cases we will need to use chemicals that do contain some little amount of bleach or acid when the grout is old and discolored.
- Q: What does a proper grout maintenance routine include?
- A: A proper maintenance routine typically includes stripping and cleaning and resealing at least once every year or two, especially in commercial areas with high foot traffic where annually cleaning is recommended.
- Q: What should I do to prepare for my grout cleaning?
- A: In order to allow us to do our job in cleaning and restoring your grout, you will need to move all furniture and items up off the floor so it is ready for us to clean when we arrive.
- Q: What type of grout cleaner is used?
- A: Tile Cleaners ® uses a low pressure / hot water system to clean your grout. The vapor system will heat water to high degrees (up to 320 degrees) cleaning your grout with vapor technology using tap water leaving your grout in a PH neutral state.
- Q: Why recolor my grout?
- A: In some circumstances, your existing grout can be soiled to the point it will not clean well enough to be acceptable. Grout can also fade if exposed to excessive foot traffic or sunlight making it impossible to eliminate color variations in your grout.
