With all the new construction of homes in Northwest Arkansas it's a sure bet that most of these homes will have tile as part of their flooring. Yes tile and other hard surfaces have become very popular in recent years because of it's durability beauty and ease of care. However, to get the most performance out of your tile as an example, there are some basic rules that must be followed in the area of tile cleaning and maintenance.Most contractors here in the area are very good about sealing the grout after the tile is installed. This is so important because if the grout is not sealed, then the grout lines will very swiftly start to soil, and over time the grout lines can become so soiled that they may not be able to be recovered even with professional cleaning. One of the reasons for this is that the grout lines are very porous, meaning that they will obsorb or soak in anything poared on it. It is basically a cement substance, so a barrier needs to be put over it so stains will not soak in. Tile grout sealing acts as a shield to protect. Now there is a myth out there that once you seal the grout, say after it is installed, that no re-sealing is required. Not true. When tile and grout is cleaned professionally, a strong degreaser type of cleaner is used. Because an aggressive cleaner is needed to clean grout, the sealer will in most cases, be removed. There is no real way of getting around it. So sealing again is a must. And tile grout sealing will put the flooring back into the condition that it was when it was first installed, and that's assuming that you as the consumer have had the tile and grout cleaned professionally on a regular basis.At KleenSmart Carpet, Upholstery, and Tile Cleaning Fayetteville Arkansas 72701, we have special tools for cleaning and sealing tile grout.
