Getting Stains Out Of Tile and Grout In Ventura County

Hard-surface flooring is a popular choice and is replacing wall-to-wall carpet as the leading seller in new flooring, in the United States. It is a really good choice when combined with soft textures such as wall-to wall carpet, area or Oriental rugs and sofas, which all need professional cleaning annually. But does tile and natural stone tile such as travertine or marble need professional cleaning? If so, how often? Who should you select to do the job, and what credentials should they carry?

The grout needs professional care after several years of normal use. Of you have pets maybe sooner. If the grout lines are much darker where you walk than they are near walls and/or under furniture or area rugs, then you need professional service.

The best system used cleaning tile and grout or natural stone- (which is different from honing and polishing)-

  • Your tile and grout is pre-treated with a special cleaning agent to break down oils and to brighten your grout. Then we use either a hand- brush or rotary brush machine to work it in or to pre-clean soiled tile surfaces.
  • Your tile is rinsed with very hot water which is pressurized to 100 PSI through a special rotary tool. This will extract all of the water into a recovery tank in our truck-mounted machine. Nothing sprays outside of the machine- there is no mess in your home.
  • This professional tile cleaning system removes ALL soil, greasy oils, and normal residues that have built up or soaked into the grout. If you have a grout stain or tile soil problem, this cleaning system will give amazing results. However, after cleaning there may be some permanent stains in the grout or the tile, or imperfections in the grout from when the grout was installed. We do highly recommend that you have the grout sealed as part of the job, after cleaning. Our grout sealer is superior to ones found in stores because it protects for years against that porous material soaking up soiled water during mopping, and oils from animals’ fur and feet.

NOTE: DO NOT EVER APPLY GROUT SEALER YOURSELF WITHOUT THOROUGHLY CLEANING THE GROUT.

NATURAL STONE

Travertine, marble and other natural stones can be professionally cleaned with this same system. Also- our polishing process goes way beyond a cleaning to actually remove scratches and bring back the original shine with diamond pads and powders.

 

Finally, make sure that the company you hire is reputable, local, and a certified firm with the IICRC because you should not trust their training of their technicians if they are not an IICRC Certified Firm.

Getting Holiday Cleaning, Protection and Sealer Done in Ventura County

Last night I got a voice mail at our office.  A customer had spilled egg nog on her new  light- colored area rug which she had recently spent over $1,000 on.  She wanted to know if we at Four Seasons Rug and Upholstery Care could get the spot out.

I gave her some advice on do-it-yourself initial spot cleanup, then we made an appointment to pick up the rug. I also told her about our rug and fabric protector service, and she is having the rug cleaned and protected by us. And, no, the spot would not come out 100% because the rayon fabric materials in the rug are very subject to permanent staining. However, now that we have treated the surface with our fabric protector, she and her rug are in much better position going forward through the holidays.

Another customer had us come over to do an estimate on tile and grout cleaning. She had had major renovation to the house and the contractor had soiled the tile and grout heavily. So, we have scheduled her for tile and grout cleaning AND grout sealing. This will prevent the grout from becoming permanently stained in the future.

 

Whether  you need Oriental rug cleaning, wool or synthetic area rug cleaning  (all expertly done at our Four Seasons Rug Care Studio in Camarillo), tile and grout cleaning, upholstery cleaning or carpet cleaning, we are clean and sober, smelling good, and ready to serve you!

The best system used cleaning tile and grout or natural stone- (which is different from honing and polishing)

1) Your tile and grout is inspected to determine matterials and make-up (very important- never trust a cleaner who doesn’t know how to do this)

We do highly recommend that you have the grout sealed by Four Seasons as part of the job,  after cleaning. Our grout sealer is superior to ones found in stores because it protects for years against the staining of that  porous grout material, caused by it soaking up soiled water during mopping, and oils from animals’ fur and feet.

Today we cleaned porcelain tile and grout for Mrs Casey M, of Newbury Park. As you can see, the film that coated every tile was hiding the wonderful travertine-like appearance.  As the SX-12 cleaning tool moved across the kitchen floor here, not only the tile but also the grout turned out crystal-clean!
