PROFESSIONAL HARD SURFACE CLEANING
Let Steamatic Of Arkansas Keep Your Home Clean From Top To Bottom
In addition to carpet, other floor coverings are gaining popularity in homes today. Like carpet, these flooring options take their fair share of traffic, spills, and abuse. Most people use the old-fashioned mop as their only way to clean tile and grout, it might look better, but not like it did when it was brand new. Most mops simply spread dirt and grime around because there is no extraction of the soiling with this method, and eventually the tile and grout begin to look darker.
ARE YOUR FLOORS REALLY AS CLEAN AS YOU THINK?
Household contaminants from the mop have been absorbed into the grout between the tile leaving it dull and dingy. Even people who use a toothbrush to clean the grout usually get the same results as mopping.
Fortunately, Steamatic of Arkansas offers tile and grout cleaning for your home and office. Our trained technicians can restore your tile and grout to like new conditions. To do this we use high pressure, agitations, and heat to immediately extract years of buildup on your floors.
First our team member will examine and measure your tile, to ensure there are no surprises at the end of the job we establish pricing before any work begins.
Once the work begins we will apply premium grout and tile preconditioner and allow time for it to break down oils and dirt then agitate the grout and tile as needed. Then your technician will pressure clean and extract the tile and grout with our Steamatic of Arkansas truck-mounted, hot water extraction unit.
At the end, we vacuum up any excess water, move all furniture back in place, and review the cleaning with you. Normal drying time is 10-15 minutes and the tile may be slightly damp when we leave, which is normal. If you must put traffic across the tile, we will leave shoe covers to keep from dirtying the areas until they are completely dry.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD MY HARD SURFACES BE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED?
There is no set rule as to how often tile should be cleaned. frequency of cleaning varies due to the texture of the tile, the amount of foot traffic, whether the grout is sealed, the frequency of mopping, and the number of small children and pets. You are the best judge to determine whether your tile has lost its luster.
To make things even easier, we can set you up on a routine cleaning schedule, with the options of cleaning every 6, 12, 18, or 24 months. Since life can often be hectic we will always call to remind you when it is time for your next cleaning.
SHOULD MY GROUT BE SEALED?
Grout is made of cement, which is porous, so it will take on the colors and odors of oils, soil, grime, and other household contaminants which makes sealing your grout is essential to protecting your investment. Grout that is not sealed will eventually ruin your tile floor.
The benefits of grout sealant are numerous. For instance, if you spill something on your flooring once it soaks into the grout, your chances of removing it have diminished greatly. If the tile is sealed, it essentially repels the liquid and wipes right up! Mold and mildew can also grow in unsealed grout that is continuously exposed to a wet, humid environment.
By sealing the grout, this eliminates mold and mildew from growing deep in the grout which helps you spend less time cleaning and more time doing the things that are important to you.
Steamatic of Arkansas will apply grout sealant immediately after cleaning. It is a clear, penetrating sealer that will protect the grout from future discoloration without changing the appearance of the floor. Most floor dealers recommend applying sealant when the flooring is installed, but it does not last forever, and periodic reapplication of the sealant will extend the life of your tile greatly.
