How Do You Know When it’s Time to Clean Your Tile and Grout?

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.

I could not be happier with our cleaning service from 1st Class! From my first call, Ginny worked with me to optimize the timing of our cleaning with other work being done, and all communication from there was clear and thorough. Claude and Ginny are genuinely nice people and were a pleasure to work with during the cleaning. They clearly know their stuff and stand behind their work. Results were my formerly bedraggled 9 year old carpets looking brand new and a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others.

This Company did a fantastic job on our 30+ year old carpet that just won't wear out! While we were moving furniture back afterward, I noticed a strip in a traffic area that didn't look quite right. When I contacted them, they were back out within a few hours and promptly took care of the issue!

We have a carpet that was the best quality at the time, but is 30 years old. It had so many stains, I was sure they were permanent. The owners showed up with state of the art equipment and 'steam' cleaned, not hot water clean, and got almost every stain and mark out of this old carpet. It honestly looks like new. The only stain remaining was because it was actual wood stain and you have to replace the carpet with that much damage. The steam allows you to walk on the carpet in 6 hours instead of the usual 24. We are selling this house and the carpet was the only sore spot, but not anymore. I will recommend this company to family and friends with a clear conscience.
