frequently asked questions
Keeping tiled floors clean can be a tough task, and grout can be particularly stubborn. The most common cause of dirty grout is using too much water and detergent while you’re washing the floor. Here’s why.
Grout is highly porous, which is what makes it effective at protecting your tiles. Unfortunately, every floor clean washes dirty water onto the tiles and into your grout. This creates a black film that can be difficult to remove and in humid areas, be a breeding ground for bacteria and mould.
Did you know that tiles such as slate, marble and limestone are all porous and need to be sealed? Our cleaning system is safe for all-natural stone tiles and we can apply a clear, penetrating sealer to protect your tiles from dirt and impurities for many years to come.
Sealing will make cleaning natural tiles easier as well, as the surface will be less porous. A clear penetrating sealer repels water and oil-based contaminants and will prevent stains.
While ceramic tiles are sealed, the grout between the tiles is porous and will readily absorb dirt, grease and grime. Most of this discolouration can usually be removed with professional grout cleaning, but over time, the grout will become permanently stained which detracts from the appearance of your floor.
Electrodry can apply a clear penetrating sealer to your grout lines that will enable you to remove more dirt and grime during regular cleaning and help prevent permanent staining.
Cleaning grout lines and porous or textured tiles requires tailored cleaning solutions that draw out the grease, grime and contaminants. Some of the toughest contaminants to remove are the residues from cleaning solutions and soap scum in the bathroom and laundry.
The cleaning solutions need to be agitated with a grout brush or high-speed polisher and flushed away with a high-pressure cleaning system. A skilled professional tile and grout cleaner will achieve the best possible cleaning results.
