Why Is Cleaning Your Tile And Grout Important?
Remove Harmful Mold & Dirt
Mould and dirt lurking in your tile and grout can cause serious health problems such as respiratory issues, and triggering allergies. Dirty grout also causes your tile to look dull and lifeless.
Nobody wants to live in a house that’s dirty and unorganized, let alone walk barefoot on dirty floors. Tile and grout cleaning keeps your home looking clean and pleasant for guests as well as yourself.
Extend the Life of Your Tile
Tile floors are much more durable than people think. However, dirt and mould can weaken the tiles until they eventually crack. Cleaning your tile every once in a while strengthens tiles slowing this weakening process down.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to get tile and grout cleaned?
Tile and grout cleaning costs are dependent on the size of the area being cleaned, the number of grout lines, and the state of your grout. To get an accurate quote for tile cleaning, please contact Knights Of Cleaning.
Is tile and grout cleaning worth it?
Yes! A huge benefit of regularly having your tile and grout cleaned is it will keep them looking like new. “But my tiles look fine,” you might say. Yes, they may LOOK clean, but even if you can’t see dirt or dust on your tiles that doesn’t mean there isn’t any. Grouting between tiles is almost like a sponge; it absorbs all the dirt, dust, oil and chemicals that get tracked across your floors. These contaminates will eventually make their way through your grout and onto the tile surface where you can see them (and track them around like crazy). Even worse for your tiles, these contaminants can cause discoloration over time as they settle into the tiny pores of your tile and grout.
How do professionals clean tile and grout?
On the surface, tile and grout cleaning appears to be a pretty straightforward process. However, there is more than meets the eye! There are many factors that go into making sure your tiles and grouts are thoroughly cleaned. For example, if your floors have never been professionally deep-cleaned before, it’s very likely that the first time they are done there will be a considerable amount of soot, which professional cleaners refer to as “Soil Lock.” This is when surface dirt has become trapped in the pores of your tile and grout. It can take multiple cleanings for these surfaces to look like new again. There are also types of tile that need to be taken into consideration when deep-cleaning. For example, most porcelain tiles can be cleaned with a high-pressure wand using plain water, but cleaning travertine tile is much more difficult because it needs to be mechanically cleaned in order to release the deposits of minerals that are stuck in the pores of the stone.
Can tile grout be cleaned?
Yes! Although it may seem like cleaning grout is impossible, there are actually many different things that can be done to clean your tiles and keep them looking new. For example, the first thing to do for dirty tile grout is to vacuum or sweep away any loose dirt. Dirt particles lodged in grout lines make cleaning very difficult because they act like sandpaper on the cleaning tools. Once your grout is free of dirt particles, you can use one of many different chemical products to chemically dissolve the incredibly difficult dirt deposits that are lodged in the pores of the grout.
What should I do to maintain my tile and grout between cleanings?
The best thing you can do to maintain the look of your tiles and grouts is to keep them as dry as possible. Many people assume that because tile and grout are waterproof, they don’t need special care; however, the opposite is true! With the proper care, your tiles can last for decades. To keep your tile and grout looking their best between cleanings, sweep or vacuum regularly to remove any loose dirt and dust. If you have pets or small children that track in dirt particles all day long, we recommend wet mopping at least once a week (wet mopping will not harm your tile). When you’re mopping, be sure to wring the mop as dry as possible and do not allow excess water or cleaning solution to sit on your floor. You can also use a grout reconditioning product which will help remove dirt and discoloration from between tiles.
Do steam cleaners work on grout?
Unfortunately, using steam cleaners will not clean grout. To properly clean your tile and grout, you need to use a high-pressure water or chemical cleaner that can dissolve the deep-set dirt as well as scrubbing tools such as brushes and microfiber cloths that can dislodge it from tiny pores in the grout lines. Steam cleaners use extremely hot steam to kill bacteria and mould, but they do not remove dirt.
How do you clean really dirty grout?
Professional tile and grout cleaners typically handle very dirty grout by first removing the dirt mechanically, then applying a grout cleaning agent, and finally using a high-pressure wand to rinse away any remaining residue.
How do you deep clean tile floors and grout?
A deep clean is the term used to describe a process where dirt and built-up soils are removed from tile floors and grout. The standard method for professional cleaning requires a combination of manual scrubbing, power tool scrubbing with chemical degreasers, and a hot water rinse using a high-pressure hose. However, there are alternative methods: One method involves an acid-based pre-treatment and a hot water rinse. Another method requires the same acid pre-treatment, but then uses a high alkaline solution for power tool scrubbing and rinsing with cold water.
How often should tile grout be cleaned?
For the average household, we recommend tile and grout cleaning every 12-18 months. This will ensure that your floor is free of dirt and debris that can cause discoloration and damage to the tiles. However, if you have pets or small children that track in dirt regularly, we would recommend a more frequent schedule (weekly mopping followed by a tile cleaning every 3-6 months).
Should I have my tile professionally cleaned?

If you have small children or pets that track in dirt regularly, we would recommend tile cleaning every 3-6 months for the average household. For households with no children or pets, we recommend tile and grout cleaning every 12-18 months.

With a high-pressure hose, we rinse the grout lines to make sure that all of the mould and mildew stains are removed.
