Residential and Commercial Tile & Grout Cleaning Service
Howard’s Cleaning Service provides professional tile and grout cleaning services to residential and commercial businesses.
Remember when your tile first was laid down, how beautiful that was?
Over time your grout and tile get dirty and loses that ‘new’ look. We always say no matter how dirty or dingy your tile and grout, you’ll be amazed by the difference our cleaning makes.
Just as there are many styles of carpet, there are different types of tile that cover our floors, countertops and bathroom walls. Be it ceramic, porcelain, or marble, these materials are porous and quickly absorb dirt and grime over time. Daily wear and tear can leave tile and grout dingy, dirty and discolored.
Grout is one of the worst at absorbing dirt and grime and scrubbing the surface will not penetrate the material enough to remove stains and discoloration. A truck-mounted steam system using higher pressures and temperatures produces the best results in returning tile and grout to their original beauty.
Additionally, a strong sealant can be applied to grout to prevent soil and liquids from penetrating the material causing it to appear dirty, or worse, causing it to mildew. You can say goodbye to nasty stains and discolorations with a professional application of quality, grout sealer and regular maintenance.

Tips for Cleaning Tile Floors
Clean the tile floor regularly
The easiest and most effective way to keep your floor looking great is to sweep, vacuum and damp mop the floor every day. Who has time for floor cleaning every day?
With tile flooring, you will be able to notice the dirt and grit on the floor more just by walking on it, so it is important to sweep or vacuum every day or every other day.
You may not see spots or stains, but if you put into place a regular cleaning it prevents the need for hard scrubbing and having to pull out those yucky chemical cleaners.
Clean up spills promptly
Wipe up spills the moment they happen. We don’t want those spills finding a new home within the crevices of the tile and in the grout! When spills happen and we don’t clean them up right away or we don’t seem them right away, it is common for stains to appear.
Clean up excess water
A weekly tip is mopping, just once a week, this helps revive your tiles color, shine, and gloss. Once you are done mopping, don’t leave the excess water and wait for it to dry, soak it up with a towel or dry mop so the water doesn’t soak into your grout.
Leading into our final tip about tile floor cleaning.
Remember the grout
Your tile can be SO beautiful, and if your grout is dirty it pulls away from the look of your tile. Cleaning your grout is key to a great looking floor. When you have lighter color grout like white, cream, tan it is easier to see the dirt and can ruin the look of your nice tile floor.
We always say no matter how dirty or dingy your tile and grout, you’ll be amazed by the difference our cleaning makes. Our truck mounted system brings higher pressure and temperatures to the cleaning process to ensure the best results. We also apply a tough sealant to your floor grout work to keep soil and liquids from penetrating. By adding this sealant, it adds life to your newly cleaned tile! Be sure to ask for our grout sealing services and regular maintenance program.
We love to educate our clients on the importance of clean floors. Your flooring can make such a big difference in your house! We want every time you have a company that they leave saying “WOW, those floors are clean!”
