Cleaning Tile & Grout

Glazed Tile – These tiles are easier to maintain due to their impermeable, glassy surface. Unless the surface is etched or cracked anything on this surface should be relatively easy to clean.

Unglazed Tile – The surface of an unglazed tile can be porous and hold soil, but is often sealed in some manner for protection. They have a matte appearance as compared to glazed tile.

Far and away, the most difficult aspect of cleaning and maintaining ceramic tile floors is the grout between the tiles. A mixture of sand and cement, grout is porous, creating a perfect spot for soils to be trapped and stored.

Another factor is grout lines are low spots on the floor to which detergent, water, and soil flow during the cleaning process. This mixture creates a biofilm that can not only be difficult to remove but harbor germs as well.
