How often should I have my tile and grout cleaned?
Similar to carpets, many factors must be considered when determining the frequency of cleaning. Foot traffic, children, pets and routine floor maintenance will affect how often you need to have your tile & grout cleaned. Sealant and maintenance care are also important factors in determining how often a professional is needed.
Sealant helps to keep dirt on the surface for maintenance cleaning & removal. It is important not to use acidic cleaning agents for maintenance. Acidic cleaning products would compromise the sealant, allowing dirt to seep into the porous material and making it hard, if not impossible, for common maintenance. We recommend cleaning with warm water and a neutral pH cleaning agent such as dish detergent.
