Tile Cleaning & Maintenance Tips


Cleaning tile and grout can be exhausting, not to mention difficult to get long-lasting results that come with professional tile and grout cleaning. Before you get discouraged about the state of your tile floors, be sure to contact the experts.

At The Most Thorough, our experts are trained and certified to perform deep tile cleaning. Your satisfaction is everything to us and we promise to deliver results that you’re happy with. 

Avoid General Cleaners

General cleaners not specifically formulated for natural stone or tile are never recommended. These can break down 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 are high alkaline or contain lemon, vinegar, bleach or ammonia) can etch several types of polished natural stone, discolor the surface, or even scratch your stone. Many cleaners have what is called a chelating agent in them. This agent breaks down and dissolves minerals (primarily calcium & sodium) in hard water. Since all stone is made up of minerals, these types of cleaners could dissolve stone minerals and cause streaks over prolonged use. The Most Thorough uses the complete line of Stone Pro Products to work on your hard surfaces.

Ceramic, Porcelain Tile & Grout

Ceramic tile and grout is man-made clay fired material. Glazed ceramic tile doesn’t normally require protective treatment. It’s the glaze itself that gives the tile its excellent protection and resistance to the absorption of dirt. Many of the new ceramic & porcelain tiles in today’s market are manufactured to look like real stone. We offer tile and grout cleaning and sealing. For best results, have the grout/joints sealed and use a neutral tile & stone cleaner such as Stone Pro - Crystal Clean.

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. This type of floor is one of the most durable on the market today. For best results, have your quarry tile & pavers brick sealed and use a neutral stone cleaner from Stone Pro Products.
