Tile cleaning is knowing what to do and what not to do.
Professional Tile Cleaning in the South Bay
Professional tile cleaning services know what to do as well as what not to do. For example, did you know that using harsh chemicals such as bleach and ammonia can not only damage your tile and your grout, it can damage them irreparably?
It’s true. Ceramic tile can have the glaze stripped from it if there’s too much bleach used when you’re cleaning your tile floor. Bleach is essentially acid. If the protective glaze is stripped off your tile, then your floor is just one stain away from being ruined. There is also the problem of what bleach can do to some forms of grout. Grout is basically a mixture of either sand and/or resin. What some grout makers don’t tell you though is that some grout is extremely susceptible to damage from harsh chemicals as well. Grout not only separates your tiles it is a protective layer under each tile. If the grout goes, your tile can start getting stress and strain on it until it finally cracks. Instead of finding ways of moving the furniture or planters to hide the stains, cracks, and other damage that could have been avoided, why don’t you save yourself a lot of trouble and call a professional service to clean your tile. However, there’s more.
Natural Stone Care and Why You Should Call a Professional Service
A lot of the more popular stones that are used in tiling appear hard enough on the surface. However, anything acidic on them can actually start dissolving the stone. So instead of having a clean tile floor, you can have a tile floor that looks like some sort of expensive cheese, namely with a bunch of holes and gaps. The same holds true for ammonia. In the unlikely event it doesn’t damage the stone right off, it can start making your stone more and more brittle till it either cracks or crumbles. This holds true for marble, limestone, and travertine. If you think that only these stones are affected, think again. For one thing, granite is a composite stone made of different types of stones fused together.
So whether you have a tile floor or a stone one, you want to take care of. Clean up any spills immediately, and call a tile cleaning service in the Beach Cities.
