Tile & Grout Cleaning Services
Cleaning tile & grout can restore your kitchen floors, bathroom floors, counter surfaces, mudrooms, and shower stalls to showroom new!
Often, homeowners move in with the floors and tile surfaces already dulled by years of wear and tear and floor mop residue, or the tile and grout dulls so slowly with the dust, dirt and foot traffic of daily life, that the homeowners gradually forget how shiny they used to be. We’ve even had customers shocked to discover their original grout isn’t black.
Anderson makes it easy to have your floors professionally cleaned and re-sealed at least once per year. With proactive maintenance, you can extend the life of your tiles and your house will always look its best – clean floors and tile surfaces are an essential part of a clean and healthy home.
Professional Cleaning Vs. Mopping Your Tile & Grout
Mopping with traditional floor cleaners is fine for everyday maintenance, especially to clean up spills and tracked-in dirt. But most off-the-shelf products leave a film residue on the tile that can build over time and dull the original glow. Bleaches and harsh chemicals can actually wear down the protective sealant and expose your tile, grout and subfloor to moisture, grime and mildew.
Seattle Metro Area Tile & Grout Cleaning from Anderson is a 4-step process that includes an emulsifier, high pressure cleaning (up to 1000 psi), high heat (up to 240 degrees F) and vacuum. This process removes up to 90 percent of the layered dirt, film, grime and dust that has been ground into the tile and grout over time. If you think our “before and after” pictures are dramatic, wait until you see how good your tile can look after an Anderson Clean!
Anderson’s deluxe package includes the replacement of a professional sealing coat over the tile and grout – this invisible layer makes it easier for you to maintain the shine year-round. It also protects your tile, grout and subfloor from moisture, mildew and water penetration.
What to Expect
Before your Tile & Grout Cleaning Team arrives, remove all chairs, mats, shoes and other items from the floor. Plan on being out of the room for at least six hours.
We recommend boarding your pets for 24 hours to ensure they stay off the floors when we’re done; this also prevents tracked in hair and dirt from sticking to the floors while they dry.
Our trained technician will first inspect your tiled area to determine the best treatment process and the proper cleaning agent.
The crew will hook their truck into your outdoor water supply. All dirty water will be pumped directly into our reserve tanks and disposed of at our facility, not into your storm drain or sewer. We will use mats, tarps and shoe covers to protect your other carpets and hardwood floors throughout the process.
During the service, Anderson’s state-of-the-art tile steam cleaning machines yield a high-pressure water and vacuum combination that extracts dirt from deep within the tile and the pores of your grout.
Once the tile is clean, our technician will add a finishing coat of our clear seal or color seal, which protects your grout and keeps it looking great.
- Anderson’s clear sealant penetrates the grout surface to create a protective barrier against spills and permanent stains. It also ensures that future tile and grout cleanings yield the best possible results.
- Color grout sealant is our premier grout restoration When grout is permanently stained and even the best cleaning methods can’t reverse discoloration. Anderson’s exclusive “color match” system restores uniform color and provides a waterproof seal.
Anderson’s cleaning and sealing processes are low to no-odor, but it helps to crack a window when possible.
Maintaining your Tile:
After we’re done, here’s how to keep your floors looking pristine in the year to come:
- Use environmentally friendly floor cleaning products that are free of bleach, harsh chemicals and odors.
- Vacuum before you mop to lift any loose dirt, dust and grime so you’re not mopping it INTO your tile and grout.
- Finish with a clean rinse mop to remove any film residue left by cleaning agents.
