6 Tips for Cleaning Tile and Grout
Nothing beats entering a bathroom or kitchen space that looks as clean and inviting as a room designed around cleanliness should be. You always want to maintain a clean and attractive environment around all your rooms. However, maintaining a truly clean bathroom and kitchen can be a daunting task for the average homeowner, especially kitchen/bathroom tile and grout. Here are easy tips and tricks for cleaning tile and grout in your home.
Clean the Bathroom/Kitchen a Little Every Day
Well, be sure to spot-clean the floor tiles, wipe off the tile backsplash and counters, and handle other small tasks that will help freshen up your kitchen or bathroom each day. You don’t have to do a thorough deep-cleaning job every day. It becomes easier to handle other cleaning tasks every other week when you do those small, twenty-second tasks.
Vacuum the Tiles
One way to prevent your tile floors from becoming dull is to vacuum them regularly. Vacuuming can help eliminate the loose debris, pet hair, and dirt from the tiles, whether on the wall or floor. Make sure you’re vacuuming regularly so you can get rid of the loose dust and dirt before it gets ground and accumulates into the floors as people walk around.
Scrub the Surfaces
It’s best that you leave your tile cleaner to sit for a about five minutes before you start swiping it. Spray the tile cleaner, spread it around and then let it fight the grime on the tiles before scrubbing it clean. Be sure to use a non-abrasive scrubbing tool to scrub the grout as it’s more porous. After scrubbing the surfaces and cleaning, remember to clean the cleaners thoroughly.
Dry all Surfaces
Sitting water always forms water spots on tiles. It’s, therefore, important that you dry the tile flooring with a clean, lint-free piece of cloth as soon as you’re done washing. Also remember that wet floors can be a safety hazard. Use color-coded dry rags to avoid cross-contaminating the different surfaces with residual surface germs.
Consider Placing Mats or Rugs in High Traffic Areas
The kitchen is one of the rooms that receive high traffic in your home. You can prevent wear and tear on your tile flooring from foot traffic by placing mats or rugs around high traffic areas. Place a mat at the entryways to prevent wear on the tiles just inside the door. You may also place another one right in front of the kitchen sink to prevent water from soaking into the tiles around that area.
Get Regular Professional Cleanings
You can never go wrong with professional tile and grout cleaning services. It’s worth the investment since they have the expertise, experience, and equipment to get rid of grime, dirt, dust, and debris that you can’t remove by sweeping and mopping. It’s super easy to schedule an appointment with a professional tile cleaning company. They use proper equipment and safe cleaning solutions that will leave your home totally clean. You’ll be thrilled at how your kitchen or bathroom will look after professional cleaning.

Very impressed with the tile and grout cleaning done by the Advanced Carpet Care team! My kitchen area needed the most work because of high traffic, cooking and spills. Now, it looks brand new! Impressive! Thanks for a job well done. I highly recommend Advanced Carpet Care!A Google User6/26/2017
I can't recommend Advanced Carpet Care enough. Their work is excellent and the prices are great too. They came with 2 workers, which really speeds things up. They also helped move all my furniture out of the way so they could clean as much carpet as possible. I typically see carpet cleaners just go around obstacles, but these guys actually move stuff so they can be very thorough. After they left, the carpet looked like new and smelled fresh. We've been putting off a carpet cleaning because of the chemicals, but these guys can use non-toxic solutions and still leave you with really clean carpet. If you need a little more cleaning power, they can use a mild detergent that is still very earth-friendly. Lastly, they are a local business, and I prefer giving my money to the smaller, service-minded businesses over a huge corporation.Corey Coogan6/26/2015

Just wanted you to know what a GREAT job your men did on cleaning our carpet last week! This was the first time I tried your company and I was thoroughly impressed. Your men came in and asked if there were any stains that they needed to pre-treat. They gave special attention to those areas, getting them to look just like new!I would highly recommend your company! And your employees were extremely professional.A Google User6/26/2016
My wife and I bought a house that smelled like dog, the previous owner had 3 dogs that must have spent all of their time in the living room. I was worried that we'd have to replace the carpet but Advanced Carpet Care was able to get the dog smell out 100%. We couldn't be more happy, very pleased.Tony Moon6/26/2016
