Tile and Grout Cleaning FAQ
What is grout?
Grout is the mixture of cement, sand, and water that is filled between floors tiles - ceramic tiles, mosaic tiles or any other tile during tiles installation.
Why is tile and grout cleaning necessary?
Whether one is referring to a home, restaurant, hospital, office, or many others, tile and grout flooring catch visitors' attention instantly as they walk on it. Moreover, grout lines are porous in nature and easily absorb grease, dirt, mold, mildew and lime scale. The soils, dirt, grime, and spills create marks and patches on the grout joints of the tile floor, and subsequently make the entire floor look dirty and unattractive. Unclean floors can also have a negative impact on business and visitors in hotels, restaurants, supermarkets, offices, schools and other organizations. Therefore, it is very necessary to protect, maintain, and preserve the tiles and keep them looking great, and for a hygienic environment. Professional cleaning services can be hired for regular tile and grout cleaning.
Why is tile and grout cleaning important?
Grout creates harmful health effects if not cleaned properly as harmful microbes, dirt, grease, stains, and mold can accumulate in it resulting in it resulting in foul odors and deteriorating indoor air quality. Substances penetrate the tiny grout pores making thorough cleaning extremely difficult.
Sometimes the surface looks clean but it contains unseen filth that not only affects the brightness of the floor but can also lead to grout cleaning and maintenance problems. Tile and grout cleaning becomes more difficult and challenging the longer the floor is neglected. Grout is difficult to clean and requires extra care and special tile and grout cleaning equipment; unclean tiles and stained grout mars the entire appearance of the flooring.
Mold, mildew, dirt, and lime scale between the joints of the wall tiles particularly in washrooms can cause grout sealing problems and unhealthy conditions. According to the National Restaurant Association, dirty bathrooms in food service establishments create such a negative impression on patrons that they are likely never to return to the restaurant. The impression is the kitchen is most likely dirty if the bathroom is not maintained well. Therefore, restaurants' revenue and profits can be negatively impacted. Unclean tile and grout can also cause many health hazards or health problems due to the continuous invasion of microorganisms on the surface, resulting in various allergies and serious diseases.
Food service facilities must perform regular tile and grout cleaning as a dirty kitchen floor appearance can contribute towards poor health inspection ratings. In California, for instance, a drop in an "A" rating can dramatically and negatively affect sales revenue. Can you give some tile and grout cleaning equipment buying tips?
It is advisable that you should always buy tile and grout cleaning equipment that is powerful and effective to clean all types of tile and grout surfaces - bathroom floors, showers and tubs, kitchen floors, tiled lobbies and halls, counter tops, and more. Buy a tile and grout cleaning machine that offers multiple functionalities and attachments for performing variety of cleaning jobs. It should provide a safe and gentle cleaning process that restores tile luster and grout brightness.
Check out Daimer's steam cleaners, steam pressure washers, and hard surface cleaning equipment for your particular tile and grout cleaning application. Conduct a comparative study of machines available on the market, read user reviews, and get first hand user experience if possible.
Price should not be a key concern when buying any cleaning equipment and especially tile and grout cleaning machines as you should consider the purchase a one time investment. It is better NOT to buy any machine rather than invest in cheap tile and grout cleaning machines with poor cleaning power.
How effective are Daimer's tile and grout cleaning machines?
Daimer's steam cleaning machines with advanced, patented steam cleaning equipment help cleaning tile and grout easier than manual cleaning methods. Our continuous-refill technology is excellent for non-stop cleaning of larger floor surfaces while steam vacuum cleaners allow for maximum productivity without the need for towel attachments; steam clean and extract!
We suggest using green cleaning chemicals and floor care solutions in conjunction with tile and grout cleaning to help accelerate the cleaning process and assist in cleaning ugly grout faster and more effectively. Higher pressure vapor steam cleaners in conjunction with green cleaning chemicals help to liquefy the substances within the grout pores for easy removal by wiping or steam vacuum cleaning. Professional cleaning contractors use cleaning chemicals and homeowners can do the same to achieve similar excellent and professional tile and grout cleaning results. Never, ever use floor cleaning chemicals that contain harmful ingredients. Green cleaning products with all natural, plant-based ingredients are best as long as the formula helps to effectively clean tile and grout.
Considering the tile surface and not the specifically the grout, Daimer's steam cleaning machines are excellent for smooth ceramic and other tile surfaces that are honed and sealed, but steam pressure washers are especially effective on unsealed porous tile that requires more pressure and water flow. Typically, restaurants use highly porous and groovy quarry tile with more anti-slip qualities in their kitchens to help protect workers from falling. The problem is grease, dirt and other substances become embedded within the tile pores, making it difficult to clean.
While vapor steam cleaners are effective for grout cleaning, the fact the vapor contains only about 5% water makes the steam flow less effective for tile surface cleaning. This is where higher pressure wet steam makes a dramatic and wonderful difference; the wet steam quickly penetrates the tile and grout pores and washes away the residues. Nothing cleans tile and grout pores as well as steam pressure washers, but the water flow limits their use to commercial and industrial settings with the proper drainage. Harmful germs and bacteria are destroyed on contact.
Certainly, homeowners using unsealed tile such as limestone, travertine, slate as well as concrete, brick, etc. will find vapor steam cleaners virtually ineffective cleaning the tile pores themselves. Unfortunately, homeowners who have purchased unsealed limestone floor tile realized pretty quickly they should have honed and sealed it. They understand the tile floor pores cannot be cleaned well without the right equipment, and they do not expect much more then grout cleaning with a vapor steam cleaner.
Daimer's commercial hard surface cleaning equipment with patented, motorized spinning technology is the answer to commercial cleaning contractors' tile and grout cleaning applications where porous tile and grout must be cleaned simultaneously. The benefit of using our XTreme Power HSC 13000 or 14000 hard surface cleaning equipment is the water is forced through nozzles safely at high pressure with fast rotation to effectively clean the tile and grout pores at up to 1000 square feet per hour while extracting the dirty water. The same drainage requirements with steam pressure washers is unnecessary as the extracted water can be "auto-dumped" without operator intervention down a toilet. Our hard surface cleaning equipment is more effective than other technologies in the industry and can be used on marble and other tile, industrial flooring, concrete, rubber floors, and much more.
