Which Problem Do You Have?
Dirty Grout- Grout becomes dirty over time when exposed to dirt, stains, and chemicals. Our grout cleaning service will restore dirty grout close to its original condition.
Mildew- Mildew happens when excess moisture builds up in areas it shouldn't, causing a black stain. This usually happens in corner grout joints and improperly installed tile & grout in wet areas such as showers.
Efflorescence- Efflorescence happens when excess moisture builds up and comes to the surface as white mineral deposits. This usually happens behind / underneath natural stone tile. Our tile cleaning service is able to get rid of or significantly reduce most efflorescence stains. Proper sealing is then recommended to prevent the re-appearance of efflorescence.
Eroded Grout- Eroded grout happens when grout is in bad shape. Sometimes this is due to old age, sometimes because of harsh chemicals being used to clean, and other times because of improper grouting techniques. Regrouting is usually required to restore eroded grout.
Cracked Tile- Tiles can crack or become chipped over time for various reasons. We can fix small scratches, cracks, and chips in tile with our tile repair service.
Cracked Caulk- Caulk cracks when it contains acrylic or too thin a bead of silicone caulk is applied. The only way to repair cracking caulk is to recaulk the areas.
