Mopping is Not Tile Cleaning

Sure, it looks beautiful, but you need to be aware that your brand new tile floor has naturally occurring crevices that like to collect dirt. So, when you and everyone else walks on it, dirt is settling into these tiny areas. While mopping may take away the stick and the ick, the grime is still there. This is especially true if you have light colored tile and/or grout. In addition, rain, wind, and sun rays help to increase the amount of dust that is in your home and on your floors, this coupled with the traffic from people and pets, as well as heat, humidity, and food usually lead to dingy looking floors that are begging for a professional tile cleaning.

Remove Mold and Mildew with Tile Cleaning

If left long enough without a proper and professional tile cleaning, the dirt and grime will eventually lead to mold and mildew. Not only are they unsightly, they can also be harmful to your health. If you notice that your grout has turned black, you should have it cleaned as mold and mildew can aggravate asthma and allergies. Furthermore, if left there for an extended period of time, especially if your home is poorly ventilated, the mold can turn to black mold and black mold is dangerous.

Unfortunately, no matter how clean you think your floors are, the look of dirt, dust, and mold that has been collecting in between the tiles makes the grout look dark and gritty. There are methods are available to ensure that this does not happen and so that you can keep your floors looking fresh, no matter how busy things are in your home. If you are in the El Paso area and are need of a tile cleaning because you want to get rid of the ick factor and have them look like new again, call Steamway Carpet Cleaning.
