When you think of hiring someone to clean your floors, chances are that you immediately think of a carpet cleaning service. But there are many homes today that are moving away from having carpeted floors as their primary flooring in their home. Instead, most homes today also have floors that are made of hardwood, tile, stone, marble, granite, porcelain, or terrazzo, and the list goes on and on. Floors that are made of these materials create a classic, warm look that can give depth and life to a space, whether it is in a home or a business space. But they can also be hard to keep clean, especially if you have tiles that have been grouted into place. Once that white grout starts to turn yellow, it can be a losing battle to get it to be white again. Often many homeowners or businesses will give up on trying to scrub it clean and will put down rugs to hide the dismal state of their floors. However, this does not have a be a losing battle for those that opt for stone flooring instead of carpeting. Instead of giving up on having your stone floors look like new again, try using a Chem-dry service that specializes in tile and stone cleaning. A tile and stone service can actually prolong the life of your floors, in addition to making them look like new again.
The process for cleaning tile and stone floors is fairly straightforward but still incredibly effective. The chem dry service will use a special tile and grout cleaner to strip away dirt. They will then use a high pressure cleaning system that will clean away the dirt both on the stone and in the grout to make it shine again. Once all of the dirt is removed, the cleaner is followed up with a sealer that will keep the tile or stone looking newer longer and protect it against future stains. The sealer can last for several years, but stone cleaning specialists recommend that you have your stone and tile cleaned and resealed every 12 to 18 months. This is the best way to ensure that your floors continue to look like new and will prevent any stains and spills from becoming permanent.
This type of effective cleaning does not have to be relegated to just your stone floors. If you have tile or stone on your counters or walls this cleaning service can also be applied to them. It is a safe cleaning method, and Green Living approved, so you do not have to worry about this being done to areas where food preparation takes place. There are no harmful chemicals or residue left over once the cleaning and sealing process is complete.
Do not let the prospect of keeping stone floors clean prevent you from having them in your home. Even if you have older tile in your home, if you contact a chem-dry service today, they can help you restore the look of you home now.
