Knowing when it’s time to clean your tile & grout can be tricky. We have a few ways that make it easy for you to know your tile is begging to be cleaned. At TruRinse, we have cleaned thousands and thousands of square feet of tile & grout, and we apply the science behind cleaning which is why we guarantee you will be amazed. 


Tile & grout can be cleaned in a variety of ways, but having a deep clean every 6 months will help to maintain the value of your tile. 


Here are 6 ways to know it’s time to clean your tile & grout by the professional tile cleaners at TruRinse, where Truly Clean Means Truly Rinsed™. 


1. Your Tile has Lost its Luster


Over time your tile can seem dim, and dull. Even after you mop it or clean it, it just may not shine or look as good as it used too. If you are noticing that the tile is darker than it used to be and you just can’t seem to get it as clean as you like, it’s definitely time for a true clean. 


When you use a professional tile cleaner they will know exactly how to rinse the tile clean, and leave nothing but clean tile and grout behind. They will also use tools that protect your tile and grout, instead of damage it. 


2. Your Socks Get Dirty When You Walk on It


If your socks are getting dirty when you walk on your tile it’s definitely time for a deep clean. Over time your tile can build up dirt, grime, and other things like soap, that capture and keep the dirt on the tile. 


A professional tile cleaner in Utah will help to not only clean off the dirt but can get the surface fully rinsed and clean. We also will seal your tile and grout after your clean so that way it stays protected and clean longer. 


3. Carpet Right Off the Tile Edge is Dirty Between Rooms 


If the carpet by your tile is dirtier than other places of your carpet, it’s a telltale sign that your carpet is becoming a mat to wipe your feet when you walk off your tile. All the dirt and grime build-up from the tile is going right to your carpet. If this is the case it may be time to find a true carpet and tile cleaner here in Utah to help get your home looking and feeling fresh again! 


4. Been More than a Year Since Its Been Cleaned


Tile and grout is built to last a long time, and like anything you value, you want to make sure you take good care of it. To keep your tile and grout longer, and to have it last in great condition, it’s important that you get it cleaned on a regular basis. 


Just like getting your hair done, changing the oil in your car, or getting your teeth cleaned, getting your tile and grout cleaned on a regular consistent basis is so important to maintain the value of your home. This will also help reduce the likelihood of having to replace it sooner than you actually need to. 


5. Grout Lines Are Significantly Darker than They Should Be 


If you have light grout lines, a sure sign it’s time to get a deep professional steam tile clean is that the lines are much darker than usual. While you can try to DIY clean your grout, we encourage you to use a professional tile cleaner in Utah because grout is a delicate material that if it gets damaged can influence the quality and life of your tile. 


We also tend to be the ones who come and clean after a DIY cleaning goes wrong. Sometimes we can help, other times we can’t fix the damage that was done because harsh chemicals and grout don’t mix very well. This is why we use our All-Natural TruRinse Solution when we clean tile & grout, carpets, upholstery, and more. 


TIP: After your grout has been cleaned take a picture of your tile & grout so you can compare later. You can also see the difference between the tile and grout in the corners, and under the cabinet edge, where there is less traffic. You will be able to see cleaner and brighter tile and grout lines.


6. Your Mop is Just Spreading the Dirt Around


Mops tend to spread the dirt and grime around, they don’t actually truly remove the dirt and grime off the surface. If you keep trying different cleaning solutions, and you feel like you are endlessly mopping your tile and grout, then it is time to call in a professional tie cleaner to help you get your tile truly cleaned and rinsed.  


Try as we might, we cannot maintain a professional clean with mops and pre-wetted wipes. Over time, dirt, grime, and soap will build up on the surface of the tile. Ready to truly clean the tile & grout? Working with tile and grout steam clean professionals here in Utah will make it easy to get a deep clean you can trust.
