This video of a tile and grout restoration shows how tile and grout is cleaned and restored by a professional cleaner. At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we use the same type of pressure washing extractor to remove the layers of dirt and grime from grout. Many times we gone into a home and started to clean the grout only to find out that the home owner did not know that their grout was white. The soil build up happens slowly, and over time it shifts to an off white or beige color.
At Chem-Dry of Tampa FL we pre-spray the tile and grout and then brush the the surfaces to ensure our solution gets in to all the nooks and crannies evenly. Then using a pressure washing head, just like the one on the video, we clean the tile and grout at 1200psi. This blows the dirt and grime out of the grout where it is then vacuumed up by the same cleaning head. Leaving your tile and grout restored and looking like new.
When a new tile floor is installed the grout lines are rarely sealed. Sealing puts a waterproof barrier on the grout protecting it from dirt and grime. In most cases tile does not need to be sealed. Over 90% of the tile in the US is either porcelain or ceramic which do not require sealing. Chem-Dry of Tampa seals the grout lines on every tile and grout restoration job with a grout penetrating sealant that protects the grout from within. This ensures easier maintenance and a much more durable clean that is likely to last for years instead of months.
