Tiles give rooms a beautiful appearance, but this can only be achieved if the tiles are kept nice and clean. Many homeowners think that tiles are more resistant to everyday dirt and grime than they actually are, which is why they don’t clean them as often as they should. The trouble with this is that dirty-looking tiles are unhygienic and can really spoil a home’s appearance.
Even if you do give your tiles a regular clean, there could be a problem. No matter how many times you give them the once over the tiles and the grout between them will get dirtier over time.
You may mop away the surface dirt, but you’re leaving behind the deeply embedded grime. Grout is also porous, and it absorbs water and detergent, which can eventually cause discoloration. Mop water seeps into the material, leading to more staining.
Carpet Cleaning Melbourne, however, uses specially formulated cleaning solutions that are not absorbed quickly. We also have specialised industrial equipment that loosens and removes dirt that is buried deep in tiles and grout. We will leave your tiles looking as good as new and your grout as clean as on the day it was installed.
Let’s talk about the problem of porosity. Tiles such as natural stone, porcelain, terracotta and slate have micro pores, tiny holes on the surface that can retain small amounts of water and the dirt, grime and dust that can be carried in droplets. Over time they will stain, spoiling their appearance.
Although grout is extremely strong and resistant to abrasion, contraction and expansion, it has a weak spot, and that is it’s porous. With continual exposure to water, grout lines deteriorate and become pitted. Bacteria accumulate in the grout causing significant staining.
Slowly and surely, the minerals contained in the grout dissolve away, and the bacteria spread. As the situation progresses, bacterial growth accelerates, and the structural integrity of the tile and grout matrix is weakened. Eventually, moisture will penetrate the area behind the tiles.
However, with the application of sealant, tiles and grout are protected by a water-resistant layer that prevents and reduces staining. It provides a barrier to protect your tiles from discolouration and deterioration.
Using our tile and grout sealant service will give your tiled walls and floors the first-class protection they need
