Porcelain, ceramic, terracotta; the options are endless when it comes to having your tile flooring or back-splash professionally installed. However, when it comes to tile and grout cleaning services, it is not as simple as wiping off dirt or grease from the grout. In fact, with gentle tiles, or costly tiles, you don’t simply want to spray a water and soap solution, nor do you want to try to use the most abrasive cleaning agents, as this can damage your pricey tiles. So, what’s the solution? Hiring a licensed service provider for professional cleaning services, is an option that you might want to consider as a homeowner.
When you hire a professional company to clean the tile and grout, they are going to do more than simply wipe down the dirty tile, and spray a fresh-scent perfume over them. Most service professionals will: deep clean the grout with soap, eliminate mildew or mould buildup, deep clean and treat the grout to get out stuck-in grease or dirt, and professionally wash and polish the tile. Especially with pricey tiles, you have to be very careful with the cleaning agent or solution you use to clean them. If you use the wrong cleaning agents, you run the risk of damaging, or possibly breaking the tiles. So, when dirt, grime, and grease have built up, you want to hire a local service provider to professionally clean the tiles and grout.
Whether it is tile in the bathroom, kitchen, a living room or an outdoor area, the best service providers are going to have the right equipment, and cleaning agents. Scrubbers will remove the dirt/dust, debris, and grease. Sanding machines will polish the tiles, and avoid damaging them when removing the dirt from the tile and grout. Lastly, a polishing machine is used, to help restore shine and brilliance, and to help enhance the overall appearance of the flooring. When polishing, many companies are also going to apply a protective coating over the floor (walls), in order to avoid damaging when finished with cleaning.
Many companies offer chemical-free or “green” cleaning solutions today. There are also more abrasive cleaning agents, and chemical-based cleaning solutions, for extremely dirty flooring, walls, and tiles. And, in some cases, if mould or mildew are an issue, there are also spot-treating solutions a professional company can provide, which will remove the mildew or mould from areas which have been affected.
Most companies charge per-job, not by the hour when pricing cleaning services. On average, with most tiles and grout which require general cleaning and polishing, you can expect to pay about £35-per room. If it is a pricey tile, or tile which is gentle, and requires specialised cleaning, this can increase pricing from £40-£50 per room/area.
Again, pricing is going to vary from company to company, so this is just an average of what you can expect to pay. Local area, market conditions, cleaning agents used, and options such as “green” cleaning, can all impact the price which you are going to pay, when hiring a professional cleaning company to clean the tiles and grout in your home. If there is mould and mildew, this might also require additional specialised cleaning services when cleaning the tile/grout, so the cost of such projects are also going to be higher than generalised cleaning services.
You don’t simply want to get a quote from one company and hire them for cleaning services. Doing so, means you run the risk of hiring a company which isn’t qualified, or is going to overcharge you. By comparing quotes, you have a better idea of the average cost locally, and also what services are included in the quoted price.
