A home that has character and a sense of place and comfort though has some issues you would like to solve. If the old house you’ve moved into or are living in contains tile flooring, even if it is limited to one room such as the bathroom, chances are it’s not the cleanest! It certainly won’t look brand new anymore.
In some homes, tile cleaning is not a luxury, it’s a necessity. When your old floors are showing their age, especially if you are struggling with hard water stains, rust, or mildew, scrubbing with mild detergents and warm water won’t get the job done. Then the carpet cleaner Melbourne team members utilize their skill and experience from tile cleaning to assess each situation separately for accurate quotes.
Don’t try to clean grout!
The grout holding your tiles in place on the floor or wall is a type of sandy cement that is applied while wet and dries in place. By its nature, grout is a porous substance, meaning it’s filled with microscopic holes that collect dirt, grime and moisture over the course of time.
Your first instinct might be to grab your bucket and bristly brush, without realizing that your efforts to clean and repair your grout are doing more harm than good. Because scrubbing loosens the sandy particles makes it more likely to crack and crumble. This happens gradually, so many people don’t realize they’re inflicting damage until it is too late. Additionally, scrubbing isn’t even an effective method for cleaning grout. Scrub brushes can’t adequately get into the grout’s pores, and your wash water might actually be depositing dirt into the grout.
The best way to clean your grout and avoid further damage is to hire a qualified technician to assess the condition of your tiled surface and make a plan for cleaning, restoration and protection.
