As homeowners who are in our houses every day, we can become blind to flooring that has gotten dirty over time. Sometimes it’s not easy knowing when it’s time to clean your tile and grout, but you can take the guesswork out of the process by hiring a professional tile and grout cleaner in Detroit every six months.
Check out these top signs that it’s time to clean your tile and grout.
Your Tile Has Lost its Sheen
With time, your tile can become dull, dim and dingy – even after mopping or vacuuming it. If the tile is darker than normal and you can’t seem to get that natural sheen back no matter what you do, a deep clean is in order.
Your Socks Are Dirty
If your socks are filthy after a day of walking around on your tile, this is a sure sign that it’s time to clean it. Tile accumulates dirt, grime, and soap that remain even with a cursory cleaning. A professional can go beyond the surface and achieve a deep down clean for longer-lasting protection.
Carpet Surrounding the Tile Edge is Dirty
If the carpeting right around the edges of your tile between rooms is dirty, then you know your tile is dirty too. You may be guilty of this: you walk across your tile, then wipe your feet on the carpet to get the dirt and crumbs off. This will prematurely age your carpet as well, so don’t let it get to this point.
You Haven’t Gotten Your Floor Cleaned in a Year
Ideally, you should have your floors cleaned twice a year, but if it’s been over a year – or you can’t even remember when – since you last cleaned your tile and grout, call a professional.
Just like getting your car cleaned or even your teeth cleaned on a regular basis will provide protective benefits, cleaning your tile and grout consistently will have the same protective benefits.
Grout is Darker Than it Should Be
Chances are, the grout lines between your tile was originally white. If they’re brown or black now, they have to be cleaned ASAP. A professional grout cleaner in Michigan will bring the right tools and experience to get this job done safely without compromising the grout material itself. Grout is surprisingly delicate!
Your Mop Just Spreads Dirt Around
Mops don’t really do much in terms of cleaning – they actually just serve to push the dirt around without removing it. If you keep mopping every single day and don’t see results, it’s time to get a deep clean by a pro.
