Keeping Your Business Immaculate

When we installed a suggestion box in the entryway of our business, I was amazed to see how many customers responded. After we started going through the suggestions, we realized that there was one request that we kept seeing--the need for a cleaner store. We decided to make a few changes to keep our place cleaner, including hiring a professional cleaning service. The results were incredible. Customers started to comment on how clean our place was, instead of the need for dramatic changes. We also noticed a boost in our sales because customers felt more comfortable in our store.

Why Tile And Grout Cleaning Is So Important Yet So Overlooked

by Lee Porter

When was the last time you had tile and grout cleaning done? Not knowing when this service was last done, if ever, is not an uncommon thing. Tile and grout cleaning is a regular chore that should be done frequently with at-home efforts and occasionally via a professional. Without having this chore done, your home and family can suffer.

Learn why tile and grout cleaning is so important, and why this task is overlooked in the home. Costs for tile and grout cleaning vary for every home depending on many factors, including square footage, amount of damage or filth on tile and grout, and other factors. Expect to pay upwards of $280 for the service, on average.

Your tile and grout suffer without cleaning

Without proper cleaning, your tile and grout ages more rapidly. Your grout and tiles can become prone to mildew and mold because of irregular cleaning, especially if these wall and floor coverings are in bathrooms, laundry areas, and kitchens where water and moisture is usually prevalent.

Your tile and grout can house a number of yucky bacteria, including salmonella and E. coli, which can be alarming. You can clean your tile and grout with a natural cleaner of white vinegar and water, using a clean rag to gently wipe these surfaces. Your tile and grout cleaning specialist will come to your home on a regular assigned schedule to do their cleaning, which will not only make your tile and grout more healthy but will help these surface areas last longer, as well.

Your family suffers without cleaning

If your biggest worry is mold in the home, then tile and grout cleaning should be a bigger priority. This is one of the best ways to prevent the spread of mold and mildew in commonly spread areas, which will help keep your family safe. Make sure to use products in the home that are designed for tile and grout specifically and always clean these areas in a well-ventilated area.

Grout and tile that is older, hasn't been cleaned in who knows how long, or that is especially delicate or detailed should always be handled professionally.  Professional cleaning should be done less frequently than you might think: maybe once or twice a year, depending on your budget and how often you want your tile and grout professionally attended to. Regular cleaning at home should be done more often to keep your family safe and your grout and tile looking amazing.
