One of the most common questions we’re asked is how to properly care for and maintain tile and grout between our visits. The following are great habits to make a part of your regular routine—and also help make your tile and grout last even longer in your space. 

#1 – Utilize doormats and rugs. 

Protect high traffic areas like doorways and hallways by placing rugs and mats in strategic spots. This can help prevent tile from scratches, wear, and stains. 

#2 – Protect tile from pets. 

Keeping your pet’s nails trimmed, vacuuming up pet hair, and wiping up messes quickly can all help protect your tile and keep it looking its best. 

#3 – Be aware of furniture. 

Take precautions to prevent furniture from scratching or damaging tile. Protective pads on the feet of large pieces or area rugs under furniture is a great place to start! 

#4 – Sweep and mop often. 

Dust and debris can take away from the shine and finish on tile and grout surfaces. Remember the importance of sweeping and mopping frequently, and avoid the use of abrasive mops or cleaning solutions on tile. 

#5 – Have your tile cleaned and resealed by a pro. 

It’s inevitable—the sealant on tile and grout will wear down over time. That’s what makes professional cleaning so important! Chem-Dry can help your tile repel liquid, dirt, and stains with this signature service.
