Tile is enormously popular because of its beauty, durability, easy maintenance, waterproof characteristics and value. Keeping in mind that tile is basically artificial rock, no wonder it’s so durable and will last a lifetime with proper maintenance. In many instances when we are invited into a clients home to clean their tile, the real problem isn’t dirty tile, it’s dirty grout.
Unsealed grout is very porous and absorbent. Dirty mop water, liquid spills, pet urine, and day to day foot traffic contribute to your grouts appearance. Because contaminants are “absorbed” by grout, homeowners can merely “surface clean” the top of their grout and watch it resoil a week later. Tile and grout cleaning is best left to a professional who has the equipment, experience and cleaning solutions to do the job right the first time. Once your tile and grout have been professionally cleaned you should have your grout sealed to stop the absorption and protect it from bacteria growth and staining.
There are basically two types of sealing, clear or color. A clear sealer is used when grout is in good condition and the homeowner wants to preserve the existing color of the grout lines. The second form of sealant is color sealant that is used in instances where the grout has been permanently stained or if the customer is looking to permanently change the color of their existing grout. Colored sealants come in a variety of colors and are designed to make your floor look new again.
Years of staining and using the wrong cleaning products can leave your grout looking splotchy and ugly even after it’s cleaned. Once the pigmentation in your grout has been destroyed it can not be cleaned back to its original appearance. By coloring or staining the grout, your grout will look better than it did the day your tile was installed. The results can be dramatic.

“We purchased an older home in Bonita Springs and the tile and grout was dingy and dark in many places. Not wanting to go through the expense of ripping out the tile and grout and starting over we contacted several grout coloring and dyeing company’s for their opinion and a quote to restore the grout.
After meeting with three companies we choose Tru-Clean Carpet and Tile Care based on their Angie’s List ratings and the professionalism they exhibited during our initial meeting. We have approximately 2800 sq. feet of tile and grout and when they completed the job our flooring looked BRAND NEW. Boy what a difference! Our tile is perfectly clean and our grout lines are PERFECT in color and consistency. We happily recommend the services of Tru-Clean Carpet and Tile Care!”
