What Makes Cleaning Tile and Grout so Difficult?

Over time, dirt, grime, spills and other contaminants accumulate making your tiles look dull and dirty while grout will darken and become discolored. Non-professional, off-the-shelf home cleaning products simply don’t remove the built-up, ground-in grime that has settled into these hard-to-reach places. Dirt and other debris get trapped in the pores of tile and grout, which is particularly tough to remove when not using professional tile cleaning methods.

Tile & Grout Cleaning Process

  1. Pre-Treatment: spray application of our alkaline trimix chemical with the purpose of breaking the surface tension of the soil, penetrating the grout in order to defloculate imbeded soil. It then breaks down soil and suspends it in the water molecule/cleaning detergent for easy removal.
  2. Agitation: Manual or Mechanical – Aids the Pre-Treatment to saturate, and helps further loosen soil.
  3. Extract: done via truckmount or portable machine vacuums off suspended soil in water molecules
  4. Rinse: Triple Steam rinse flushes out any dirt remaining in the tile & grout ensuring full removal.
  5. Emulsify: a chemical rinse that is the 2nd rinse step synergistically reacts with the pre-treatment to attract all chemical and soil to the surface
  6. Neutralize: a chemical rinse that is the 3rd step in the rinse step that flushes all chemicals out, neutralizes them, and brings the tile & grout PH back to balance PH7 to prevent re-soiling.
  7. Speed dry: expedite drying to eliminate/avoid efflorescence

Additional Services

Grout Sealer

Our grout sealer provide maximum protection against:

  • Permanent staining
  • Repel water & oil based stains
  • Prevent malodors & microbial growth
  • Recommended once a year in high moisture areas after a restorative cleaning process has been performed


Replacing loose, damaged or stained grout:

  • Grout may come loose during our cleaning process
  • Our process does not cause this condition, but rather exposes a pre-existing condition
  • Replacing grout is a great way to refresh the look and feel of your home.


Replacing caulking is essential to high moisture areas in your home. Caulk prevents:

  • Moisture migrating in between building materials
  • Rotting off building material that accumulates moisture
  • Microbial growth as a result of moisture accumulating in areas that do not dry out
