Ceramic tile and grout get dirty very easily and cleaning them is one the most difficult task. The buildup of grime, dust and grease in the grout are very nasty to look. As a result of the rapid color change that alter radically the appearance of your floors and walls.
Majority of people complete this task using a small brush and lots of harsh cleaning chemicals. These harsh chemicals discolors the grout or likewise erode sections of it. Sealing the grout will only work if it is currently perfectly clean, unless you want it look dirty forever.
We do not need to explain you that why this task traditionally makes a mess and takes lot of time to complete. Here we will show you techniques to get great results for grout cleaning using steam cleaner from Five Star Carpet & Tile Care. A good quality dry vapor steam cleaner is definitely the most efficient, mess-free and eco-friendly method to rapidly restore any grout to its original color.
The steam has low moisture and gentle pressure. It actually forces the dirt out of the grout. Furthermore, it brings dirt to the surface where you can wipe it off. When you are using a steam vacuum cleaner there is no need be on your knees scrubbing the floor. Using the extensions, one can clean it in a standing position on floors or even ceilings. You can also use the grout-cleaning lance directly on your steam hose to work on walls with more efficiency.
How to Start with:
- Firstly, you need to collect the steam cleaner with the steam hose, the 2 extension tubes, the steam nozzle and a detail nylon or brass brush, depending on the strength of your grout.
- Then you need to assemble the parts together and place the detail brush on the steam lance.
- Set steam pressure at low or at medium.
- Place the lance directly over the grout and move at a steady speed in a forward direction.
- Finally, all you have to do is wipe the excess moisture and dirt that release from the grout with either a towel or a mop.
Your grout cleaning will completely restore the grout. Besides that not only the grouts but also the whole floor and walls at the same time. If you have a right machine, there is no need to wear any mask, gloves or no need to buy any kind of harsh chemicals.
Steam Cleaners are Good
With the appropriate machine, you will save much time, money as well as back aches. Steam cleaners are exceptionally good for certain areas that are tough to reach. Like the grout at the base of toilets or in showers, where moisture can possibly cause stain. Entranceways and side doors also tend to need extra grout cleaning.
The grout around kitchen equipment, where the mop has pushed a collection of dirty, greasy water over the years is another awesome spot to clean with your high-quality steam cleaner. Remember, there are some areas where steam cleaners are not the solution.
First, if the grouts are sealed, it is not possible for steam to bring the dirt out from under the seal. Second, very old, broken grout, where there are cracks should not be steam cleaned. Grout erosion is generally the result of a chemical reaction from the acidic cleaning agent that used previously. In those cases, the grouts should be replaced.
