Tile and Grout

Before-After-tileKeep it Clean is extremely qualified to take care of the greater Sacramento area’s hard surface flooring needs, as it is its carpeted ones. Let our state-of-the- art equipment and expertly trained technicians take this tough job off your hands (and knees). We use only the most effective methods to clean tile and grout, primarily the steam extraction method: a powerful yet safe and very effective cleaning process. Using extremely hot water/steam, non-toxic cleaning solutions, water pressure and vacuum extraction, we can restore a like new look to your tile and grout surfaces. Keep It Clean uses steam extraction machines that dislodge and remove dirt packed in the tiny pores of your grout lines that you could never get out yourself. The system that our professionals use generates water pressure of 1,100 to 1,300 PSI and a water temperature of approximately 240 degrees to break up and extract years of dirt, grime and stains. The vacuum hose draws away the water, along with the dirt, to a containment tank on our truck and we dispose of the waste in accordance with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. There is no extra mess, so your cabinets, fixtures and carpeted areas remain protected, along with the rest of the surrounding area(s).

Grout is a mixture of cement, color, and sand. It is porous and, as a result, it readily sucks in grease, dirt and lime scale. Floor manufacturers recommend

that you have your tile and grout cleaned once every 1 to 2 years because regular cleaning just can’t reach the embedded dirt that lies deep in the pores of your grout. This is why it’s so important to hire truly experienced professionals like Keep It Clean to clean your tile and grout on a regular basis. Keep It Clean specializes in cleaning tile and grout and can restore yours to its like new condition.

Some stains like red wine, mustard, and dyes will not come out of grout because they permanently dye it. Because of this, Keep It Clean recommends restoring your grout with a penetrative seal to protect your grout lines fresh new look. This latex-based topical sealer is applied to your grout once your tile flooring has been cleaned. This sealant penetrates and protects the surface of the grout or stone, effectively resisting penetrants and also making it much easier to keep clean, minimizing the likelihood of staining, and the time it takes to regularly clean. Keep It Clean grout sealant is a simple preventative maintenance application, that after cleaning, helps keep your tile and grout looking its best for much longer.

Even if your grout isn’t currently discolored, it’s wise to protect your grout lines and keep them looking good. Regular application of our sealant will keep stains beaded up on the surface of your grout lines, giving you enough time to wipe up dirt and spills before they could ever be absorbed. Absorbed stains can permanently discolor your grout, and ground in dirt can cause your grout to weaken and break down. Protect your grout. Ask your Keep It Clean technician to apply a clear sealant each time we come out to clean your tile and grout.
