One of the nicest touches to the basic architectural components of a home is ceramic or stone tile in kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and even outdoors. It’s hard to go wrong with tile. It’s durable, long-wearing, and looks great. A stone tile floor in the entryway immediately adds an air of class in a home, and there’s nothing quite like a stone patio in the backyard to host a barbecue for family and friends.
Unfortunately, tile and stone are not immune to the unhealthy elements that are in and around your home. Over time, dirt and grime build up in the porous surfaces of your stone, tile and grout flooring, turning them into a breeding ground for disease-causing bacteria. Especially in areas like the bathroom and kitchen, where germs can run rampant, it’s important to do everything you can to cut down on the spread of bacteria. While regular sweeping and mopping are helpful at keeping excessive build-up at bay, those don’t deliver the deep cleaning that your floors really need.
Some people try to take matters into their own hands and scrub between the tiles with a toothbrush to get at that gunky build-up that mops and brooms can’t reach. Unfortunately, that’s a lot easier said than done. It is a back-breaking chore that, after all the work, yields mixed results at best. After potentially hours of scrubbing, you often have nothing substantial to show for it but several aching joints and a filthy toothbrush. So what’s going to save your back and deliver a deep, safe, healthy cleaning?

Professional tile cleaning is important, not only because it protects and preserves your investment in the premium building materials in your home; it also helps maintain the healthfulness of your home. Contrary to popular opinion, the environment inside your home can be two to 100 times more polluted than the air outside. Homes are supposed to be a safe haven that protect us from exposure to unhealthy elements like allergens, germs and pollutants. However, a build-up of bacteria, dust and pet dander on flooring surfaces can contribute to all kinds of chronic illnesses including allergies and asthma.

That is not a worry with Chem-Dry. All of the ingredients in our primary cleaner are safe and approved for your home and family, so you can know that your family is being well taken care of.

Cleaning out the dirt and grime that has collected on your floors over time can restore a healthy shine to your tile and make it look like it did when it was first installed. But the grout used to install it is a highly porous material that can absorb soil and spills, just like carpet, making them more difficult to clean and making cleaning efforts less effective. After we clean your tile and stone floors, we apply a sealant to keep out dirt and germs, giving you the opportunity to clean up any spills quickly before they can soak into the grout and stain or linger.

You should only use clean mop water as soon as mop water becomes cloudy and you cannot see the bottom of the mop bucket ..... you should replace the mop water.
