How You Can Tell It’s Time for a Professional Tile & Grout Cleaning

There are a lot of advantages to having tile flooring in your home or business. Tile is durable, attractive, easy to maintain, and can last you for decades if installed properly. It’s also resistant to staining, moisture, and overall damage, making it a particularly good choice for businesses with high foot traffic.

But just because tile is low-maintenance, doesn’t mean you can get away with no maintenance. In addition to routinely cleaning it yourself, you should have a professional tile and grout cleaning performed annually (or more for some businesses). So, what are the signs that it’s time to call in a professional for your tile floors?

Your grout is discolored.

When dirt and grime build up, your grout will likely become stained and discolored. Especially if you notice that the grout in less-frequented areas of your home or business, such as underneath area rugs or around baseboards and trim, is a different shade, then you’ll need the level of deep cleaning only a professional can provide.

Mold keeps growing in your grout lines.

If you see discoloration on your grout in the form of black or dark green splotches and spots, this is a sign of mold growth. This can be common along grout lines in high-moisture areas, such as a bathroom or kitchen. A professional should come in to clean your floors ASAP, as mold is a health hazard to you and your family and/or customers.

Your tiles look dull.

Over time, dirt and residue buildup and scratches can dull the appearance of your tiles. If your tiles are looking lackluster and you’re unable to improve them with regular cleaning, a professional tile and grout cleaner will be able to help. They’ll deep clean and polish your tiles until they’re good as new.

You can’t get your tiles or grout clean by yourself.

Do you clean your tile and grout constantly but can’t seem to make a dent, or worse—they’re getting dirtier? Then it’s time to let a professional step in. When DIY cleanings are no longer cutting it, your tile and grout are beyond what normal cleaning supplies and techniques can do, and professional skill and equipment are necessary to restore them.
