Advice to Achieve Gleaming Grout

By On July 3, 2017 No Comments

When individuals are looking for advice on how to clean grout there is often too much information available. Much of the advice takes into consideration cleaning the surface of the surrounding tiles but not in fact the actual grout.

The cleanliness of your grout lines really is important and it is often unsightly grout that becomes more noticeable than slightly dirty tiles. The following information has been put together in order to offer comprehensive cleaning advice.

Porcelain Marks EssexIt is first important to remember that grout is a porous material. In effect, it soaks up the dirt and moisture from the cleaning process. Due to the fact that the grout lines are slightly recessed this is a process that can be difficult to avoid.

As dirt builds up naturally through use on floors it is therefore important that such particles are removed regularly. If dry particles are left on the floor when a liquid cleaning formula is applied, they will just combine with the formula and will likely be left and pool in the recesses when the process is complete. Full removal of such contaminants means that you will experience better results.

Another element to consider is the fact that the best-available solution should be selected. Not only should this be compatible with your stone tiles but it should be a formula that does not leave residue once cleaned. Any residue will instantly attract further dirt.

This is part of why our service offers such value for money. Once your tiles have been deep cleaned and restored we will offer you detailed advice on the best products to routinely clean your floor.

Grout Cleaning LoughtonOur Top Tip:

A top tip is to ensure that you avoid using bleach to clean your grout lines; as this is not an appropriate cleaning solution for grout. The intensity of bleach will likely break down the grout and will work to deteriorate it and damage it over time.

There are specially designed grout cleaning brushes available which are strong enough to deep clean the grout lines but will not damage the structure.

Diamond grinding is the beginning stages of stone floor restoration. Both surface contaminants and deep scratches can be removed during this process. How is this managed? Diamond abrasives are used to grind the surface of the marble tiles.

Marble floor tiles are incredibly versatile floors and offer a truly durable flooring option. This, however, provides a challenge when restoring them. Marble in its very make up offers varying challenges but yields exceptional results.

As the top layer is removed it offers a honed finish to the tile. Although it is likely that the stone finish will have been decided prior to this point; this is the point at which this needs to be decided. A honed finish will require less stages and a more-polished finish will require additional stages.

This then works to offer a finish, free from scratches and marks. Either way, the marble tiles are then ready to be fully sealed. This is the end part of the process that leaves the marble floor with resistance against wear and usage.

It is fair to say that this entire process requires a skilled approach. It is time consuming and demands a highly-trained approach. This is part of our passion for stone floor restoration.
