General cleaners, not specifically formulated for natural stone or tile, are never recommended. These can breakdown the sealer, thereby removing its protective properties and making the stone and tile grout susceptible to stains. Worse yet, many cleaning products, including those that contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia can etch away the polish, discolor the surface, or even scratch your stone. Many cleaners contain what is called a chelating agent. This agent breaks down and dissolves minerals in hard water. Since all stone is made up of minerals, these types of cleaners will dissolve and cause streaks with prolonged use. ServiceMaster Residential Care offers the complete line of Spinergy and StoneTech Professional™ Products.
Ceramic Tile & Grout
Ceramic tile and grout is a man-made clay fired material. Glazed ceramic tile does not normally require any protective treatment. It is the glaze itself that gives the tile its excellent protection and resistance to the absorption of dirt. Many of the new ceramic tiles in today's market are manufactured to look like real stone. ServiceMaster Residential Care offers tile and grout cleaning and sealing. For best results, have your ceramic tile and grout sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner, such as Spinergy and StoneTech Professional™ Stone and Tile Cleaner, available through ServiceMaster Residential Care.
Quarry Tile & Pavers Brick
Quarry tiles are an unglazed ceramic material. They are particularly well suited for exterior paving due to their low absorption and resistance to freezing.

For best results, have your quarry tile & pavers brick sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner, like Spinergy and StoneTech Professional™ Stone and Tile Cleaner, available through ServiceMaster Residential Care.
Terracotta Tile or Saltillo Tile
Terracotta tile or Saltillo tile is one of the oldest ceramic materials made by man. This type of tile is created by mixing clay and water, leaving it to dry naturally and then baking it in a kiln. Saltillo tile has particular characteristics that demand special treatment. ServiceMaster Residential Care is trained in the cleaning and sealing of this type of floor. For best results, have your terracotta tile or saltillo sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner, such as Spinergy and StoneTech Professional™ Stone and Tile Cleaner, available through ServiceMaster Residential Care.
The Benefits of Professionally Cleaning Tile and GroutCleaning tile and grout on your hands and knees is one task no one really should or wants to do! However, no one can deny that professionally cleaning tile and grout makes it look better and improves the overall look of the room. Consider these excellent reasons for having your tile and grout professionally cleaned:
There is no risk of damaging the grout. Unless you have a great deal of expertise, cleaning tile and grout yourself can be a dangerous job. Unfortunately, many people are under the impression that a little soap and vinegar will do the job just fine. However, when they discover that won’t work, they usually resort to harsh chemicals. This can cause some nasty scratching or even changing the texture of your grout, making it more susceptible to staining. If you choose a certified professional, they will have the experience & equipment to not only clean the tile and grout, but seal the grout if you so desire.
Tile and grout cleaning will reduce mold. Mold can cause a whole host of health problems and is difficult to remove once it has gained a foothold in your home.
Unfortunately, poorly cleaned tile and grout can leave mold & other food deposits behind. With a certified, professional technician, you can be fully assured that regular cleaning will reduce the likelihood of mold forming in your grout and tile.
Your grout and tiles will remain cleaner for a longer period of time. Sometimes it may seem as though you need to wash and scrub your tile and grout at least every other day! However, with a professional cleaning and sealing, that often can be reduced to a light cleaning every other week in order to maintain their clean appearance.
A professional tile and grout cleaner will always have the correct tools and most powerful cleaning products at their disposal. If you attempt to clean your grout yourself, you will either have to rent an expensive steam cleaner, which is not designed for tile cleaning, or rely on over the counter tile and grout cleaners that just don’t get that deep-down clean you want. What’s more, you might find yourself wasting money and a considerable part of your weekend!
The great thing about professional tile and grout cleaning is that we have the right high pressure equipment and products to do the job correctly, without any extra work on your part. Give us a call today to find out more or to schedule service.
