The holiday period is up, and the kids are likely back at school. What’s left now is a home that probably resembles something from a post-apocalyptic film. If your family enjoyed the holiday period properly, chances are that your tiles and grout will be looking a little worse for wear.
During the summer holidays, it’s not uncommon for us to wet the tiles more. Be it when walking through the home with wet feet, mopping or when taking showers. With the more exposure to water and vapour that tiles and grout receive, it’ll increase the chances of them being affected by dirt and grime. Quite often, it’ll also lead to discolouration which becomes very difficult to restore.
What happens when your tiles and grout become dirty?
When your tiles become dirty, they often leave behind a layer of grime which is particularly difficult to remove. Although it just looks like a dirty patch, there are actually lots of germs swelling on the surface which can quickly spread around the home. As someone comes into contact with the dirty tile, they quite often carry these bacteria throughout the home.
With grout, on the other hand, it can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria and germs based on its exposure to water and vapour. The porous nature of grout means that it’ll absorb the wetness which in time will lead to discolouration and lots of germs.
What’s the best solution for cleaning tiles and grout?
When it comes to tile and grout cleaning, there are many ‘home-solutions’ available, some of the most popular ones involving bi-carb! We’ve had plenty of our customers try these alternatives but with disappointing results. What happens is that many customers realise just how hard it is to completely rid your tiles from grime and soap scum, and to restore the original colour to their grout. There are very little results for the time invested in cleaning.
At Wizard Carpet, Tile and Grout Cleaning, we offer a professional (and cost-effective) solution to having your tiles and grout cleaned. Our team of cleaners are well-versed when it comes to restoring the shine to your tiles and the original colour to your grout. Our method of cleaning involves the use of extremely hot water and steam, accompanied by heavy-duty (child & pet-friendly) cleaning products to help kill the germs and bacteria that have been harbouring in these areas.
