San Mateo, CA. Tile And Grout Services
Perhaps your tile work is looking dingy and stained from years of wear. Or maybe your grout lines look an entirely different color than when your tile was first put in. Chances are, that color is still there, it’s just hidden by staining and dirt. Regardless, it’s time for a change!
After: Grout lines are clean and brilliant, giving the floor a whole new and revitalized look!
The good news is that with a simple cleaning process, your San Mateo, CA. tile grout can look new and brighten up your entire room. However, the wrong kind of cleaning can cause major and costly problems over the long run. Harsh cleaners such as bleach can remove dirt, but also will deteriorate and compromise the integrity of the grout as well. Once grout lines are worn below the tiles, they become a magnet for dirt, mold, and bacteria. Steam cleaners can also be very abrasive on grout and even cause tiles to loosen and wobble.
PRO GROUT uses gentle cleaners that will deep clean your grout lines without compromising their structural integrity. Our cleaners have special bonding agents that will keep the grout intact while cleaning. Your grout will be restored to its natural, beautiful color.
San Mateo, CA. GROUT REPAIR: Perhaps your grout is cracked or grooved in some areas. Maybe you are missing chunks of grout in some places, too. This is something that needs immediate attention because these grout cracks and divots can expose your sub-floors to water damage as well as toxic molds. Toxic molds can poison the air with noxious odors and toxins, which are harmful to children and people with respiratory ailments. Moreover, these toxin molds are oftentimes undetectable. It’s important to safeguard your health by attending to cracks and grooves in grouting.
