A healthy home is a happy home. Consistent cleaning of high traffic areas is vital towards the ultimate health of your family. This is especially true for bathrooms, kitchens, or anywhere that is designed with tile and grout. Tile and grout are beautiful investments that transform the look of any room. However, after some time, they can quickly become the home of dangerous bacteria and germs that can cause a lot of problems. Tile and grout sealant can strengthen defense against dirt, spills, bacteria, mold, and make your home a healthier home.
Why A Sealant Is Worth The Work
Ever wonder what could be hiding inside of your tile? Tile and grout are porous surfaces that absorb dirt and spills which combine to house harmful contaminants. Sealant, however, protects your tile and grout from being damaged and absorbing harmful particles. A sealant is a liquid coat applied to the porous surface of the tile or grout to protect them from oxidation, natural deterioration and day-to-day wear. When you invest in a tile and grout sealant, you also invest in the long-term quality of your home’s tile and your family’s health. Especially in bathrooms and kitchens where tile and grout are exposed to various substances, a sealant is necessary for a healthy home.
As a rule of thumb, reseal your grout once a year for high traffic homes, and anytime it’s been deep cleaned, reseal it immediately. Do you have out-of-the-way, low traffic rooms in your home? Make sure not to neglect these areas by resealing it every 4-5 years.
Strengthen ‘Hotspot’ Rooms
Tile flooring can get dirty very fast, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Careful mopping of tile flooring is important to do, but over time your tile needs a more advanced clean. Professional tile and grout cleaning from Chem-Dry of Long Beach can completely restore your tile’s appearance and maintain its quality for many years to come.
Mold and mildew thrive in warm areas that receive constant moisture. Bathrooms are a hotspot for mold and mildew and need to receive extra attention when it comes to cleaning. You may even get down on all fours and scrub away for hours to solve the problem, but your tile still won’t receive the clean it needs.
