Picking the Right Tile Cleaning Service For Your Home

February 18, 2010

Most people are under the impression that building a house is a hard job but the truth is that maintaining a clean house is harder than building one. Tiles are often hard to clean and most of the products in the market don’t remove stains from tiles as well as they should. Cleaning services help people remove stubborn stains from them and the trained technicians also provide home owners with tips so that they can keep their tiles clean. This article will help you understand which cleaning service is right for your home.

Cleanings services that are offered by cleaning companies include cleaning of marble floors, cleaning of polished ceramic tiles, cleaning of unpolished ceramic tiles, cleaning of brick tiles and cleaning of grout. Depending on their type you have the technician may use mild acids to powerful acids to clean your tiles. Since some of them cannot be cleaned with acids the technician will use alternate materials to clean these tiles.

The type of damage done to the tiles will also determine which material is used to clean the tiles. Basic cleaning services remove stains that have not affected the floor drastically but extensive cleaning services remove stains that cannot be removed without otherwise replacing the tile.Those having mildew and mold damage are often cleaned using powerful materials since mold and mildew spores are hard to kill.

Tile sealing services are also offered by many repair companies. This service consists of using sealants to repair leaky floors. The type of sealant used will depend on the type of floor you have. For instance granite floors require a different sealant than grout floors and the cost for sealing granite floors is more than the cost for sealing grout floors.

Repair services are meant for people who have tiles that are damaged or badly stained. These services are more extensive than regular cleaning and strong materials are used to repair them. Some of the types of tile repairing services include replacement of broken tiles, removal of water stains, replacement of wall boards and replacement of chipped tiles. Some cleaners also repair tiles that have been discolored due to regular wear and tear.

The cleaning service you choose will depend primarily on the type of tiles you have since there are specific cleaning methods for each type of tile. After they have been cleaned the technician will give you tips so that you can keep your tiles clean till when the next cleaning is due.

The price charged for such cleaning services is generally calculated per foot of tile. The type of tile and the type of cleaning or repair method chosen will also affect the total cost. Many tile cleaners offer discounts to customers who opt for more than 2 services and these companies also provide periodic discounts and promotions.
