BLOG The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining Your Restored Tile and Grout May 09, 2024

Congratulations on investing in the restoration of your tile and grout by Taylor Grout and Tile Restoration! Now that your floors are looking brand new, it's important to know how to properly maintain them to ensure they stay in top condition for years to come. Here is the ultimate guide to maintaining your restored tile and grout.

1. Regular Cleaning: The key to keeping your tile and grout looking fresh is regular cleaning. Sweep or vacuum the floors regularly to remove dust and debris. When mopping, use a mild detergent and warm water to clean the tiles. Avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the grout.

2. Grout Sealing: After the restoration process, it's important to have your grout sealed to protect it from stains and water damage. Taylor Grout and Tile Restoration can provide this service for you. Sealing the grout will make it easier to clean and maintain in the long run.

3. Avoid Abrasive Cleaners: Stay away from abrasive cleaners that can scratch the tile surface and damage the grout. Instead, opt for gentle, pH-neutral cleaners that are safe for both the tile and grout.

4. Use Grout Brushes: For tough spots and stubborn stains, use a grout brush to gently scrub the grout lines. Avoid using metal brushes or scrubbers that can cause scratches.

5. Wipe Up Spills Immediately: Accidents happen, but it's important to wipe up spills immediately to prevent them from seeping into the grout lines and causing stains.

6. Regular Maintenance: Schedule regular maintenance with Taylor Grout and Tile Restoration to have your tile and grout inspected and cleaned professionally. This will help prolong the life of your floors and keep them looking like new.

7. Avoid Heavy Furniture: Avoid dragging heavy furniture or appliances across the tile floors, as this can scratch and damage the surface. Use felt pads under furniture legs to prevent scratching.

8. Keep Grout Lines Dry: After cleaning, make sure to dry the grout lines thoroughly to prevent mold and mildew growth. Use a dry mop or towel to remove excess moisture.

By following these tips and guidelines, you can maintain the beauty and durability of your restored tile and grout.
