Why do I need this? - So you may be asking yourself, what exactly does this do and why do I need it? It's a service that is not commonly known, but once you have it you will understand why it's so important. After your tile floor is all clean and looking like new with a professional cleaning, consider getting Orlando Tile and Grout Cleaners to apply a seal protectant to your grout for a longer lasting clean. If you've ever had sealants put on your teeth to prevent cavities or gotten your car waxed to repel dust, it's a similar concept. Think of it as applying a clear, transparent barrier between your grout lines and the outside elements. If you have heard of this and have ever looked into doing this yourself, you are well aware that there are products available at big box home improvement stores like Home Depot and Lowes that you can buy to seal your grout. Or there are homemade mixtures you can use that do an ok job. Sure you could save a little money and do it yourself. But be prepared for a very tedious and back breaking task ahead of you. If the thought of getting down on your hands and knees to scrub the grout with a toothbrush is not appealing to you than applying seal to your grout is no different! Not to mention most of those store bought sealers are not comparable to the professional products we use. Many sealers on the market only provide stain resistance and not stain proofing.
Professional sealing application allows you to maintain the cleanliness of your floors. Grout is a porous material that will attract dirt even while you are mopping. The mop will move dirt around the floor and collect in the grouted areas. This makes it very difficult to keep lighter colored grout clean unless it has been sealed. A good quality sealant will protect your floor from absorbing moisture, dirt, germs, and bacteria. Also the next time you have a spill in your kitchen, this will keep the liquid from absorbing and allow for a much easier cleanup and will not leave a stain. Think of the seal as a physical layer of protection between the environment and your floor.
So what is the process? - Once are finished with the tile and grout cleaning, we make sure the floor is completely dry. We then apply a clear seal protectant to the grout, allow it to cure for about 2 hours and then go back and clean up the residues. During this process, it would be best if you can arrange to be out of the house or in another part of the house that doesn't require the treated area to be stepped on.
How much does it cost? - Once you contact us and provide the square footage of the area you wish to be treated we can give you an estimate over the phone. If you concerned about the additional cost, remember that the investment now would save you money in the long term because you would not have to get your floors cleaned as often. The additional cost is well worth it if you consider you are protecting your tile floors from getting stained again.
So whether you have pets, small kids, or have high traffic areas that are prone to getting dirty, grout sealing is the way to make your newly cleaned floors last longer. So now that you have been educated about all the benefits, consider it is an investment in your home that you will not regret and will ask yourself why you waited so long.
