Carpet Cleaning Experts services are certified to take care of your hard surface flooring. Our state-of-the-art equipment and trained technicians can take one more job off your hands (and knees). We use the most recommended strategy to clean tile and grout, the steam extraction method, a powerful yet safe and very effective cleaning process. Using extremely hot water, non-toxic cleaning detergents, water pressure and vacuum extraction, we can restore the gleam to your tile and grout surfaces. Our truck mounted steam extraction machines dislodge dirt packed in the tiny holes in your grout lines and lift it out. The system that our professionals use generates water pressure of 1,000 to 1,200 PSI and a water temperature of approximately 240 degrees to soften and extract years of soil and contaminants. The vacuum hose draws away the water, along with the dirt, to a containment tank on our truck and we dispose of the waste in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. There is no over spray, so your cabinets, fixtures and carpeted areas remain protected, along with your surrounding environment.
Grout is a mixture of cement, color, and sand. It is porous and, as a result, grout easily absorbs grease, dirt and lime scale. Floor manufacturers recommend that you have your tile and grout cleaned once every 12 to 18 months because regular mopping just doesn’t reach the stubborn dirt that lies deep in the pores of your grout lines. Microscopic pores in the grout allow dirt and other contaminants to become trapped below the surface, where it can’t be removed by regular mopping and cleaning. This is why it’s so important to hire an experienced professional to clean your tile and grout on a regular basis. Carpet Cleaning Experts specializes in cleaning tile and grout and restoring it to it’s original clean look.
Our tile and grout cleaning process restores the tile & grout to 85 to 90 percent of its original appearance. Most stains are removed, but some stains like red wine, mustard and dyes will not come out because they permanently dye the grout. For situations like this, Carpet Cleaning Experts experts recommend restoring your grout with a pigmented penetrative seal to give grout lines a fresh new look and save you the expense of re-grouting. This latex-based topical sealer is applied to your grout lines, once your tile flooring has been properly cleaned and dried. This protective barrier penetrates and blocks the surface of the grout or stone effectively resisting the penetration of foreign materials making it much easier to keep clean, minimizing the likelihood of staining and increasing the time available to pickup the staining materials before it can become permanent. Sealing simply helps keep your flooring looking its best much longer.
Even if your grout isn’t currently discolored, it pays to protect your grout lines and keep them looking good. Regular application of our sealant will keep stains beaded up on the surface of your grout lines give you enough time to wipe up dirt and spills before they are absorbed. Absorbed stains could permanently discolor your grout, and ground in dirt could cause your grout to weaken and break down. Protect your grout. Ask us to apply a clear or color sealant each time we come out to clean your tile and grout.
