Tile and grout cleaning is an essential process towards keeping your tiling looking clean and bright. Tiling itself is a durable material that will be long lasting wherever it’s used, that’s why it has been a typically brilliant choice for bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor spaces. The downside to these spaces is that they’re often susceptible to getting damp and the problem in that, lies in the grouting. It is possible that within the grouting, mold and bacteria can begin to take root, this could be potentially unhealthy to live around and so the upkeep of this really is necessary.
Mold Buildup in Grout
Mold is a fungus that thrives in warm and humid spaces, particularly if there is limited airflow. Kitchens and bathrooms therefore are the perfect candidates for mold to begin building up, especially when combined with a material with a porous nature such as grouting. Without proper air circulation, the mold will not only continue to spread but potentially dangerous spores could become airborne and cause a direct hazard to your health. With professional products and careful attention, this problem can be rectified and prevented and so its highly recommended that you organize someone like ourselves, at El Cajon Carpet Cleaning.
Different Types of Mold
There are a variety of different types of mold that can establish themselves in your home, this can be dependent on what is present in its surroundings or the climate of the room. Pink mold is common in areas that have very little air ventilation and so can be common in tight spaces such as underneath cupboards and closets. Orange mold is more common outside, this could potentially be the strain that is present in your outdoor tiled spaces. Most hazardous to human health is black mold, a fungus that thrives with damp conditions and spreads rapidly. This is known to have caused serious health issues in a number of homes and public places and if found, should be dealt with by professionals with the capabilities to clean with long term protection.
To remove mold from difficult surfaces such as grouting, its always advised to employ professionals with specialist cleaning agents and equipment. Whilst it is possible to remove mold yourself, it is done with products that can leave strong smells and won’t solve the issue forever. Using specialist cleaners and a combination of techniques and methods, the integrity of the grouting will be maintained and the work done will last longer than its alternatives.

Tiling can come in a variety of materials and with each material there is a specific tile cleaning process which will be the most beneficial and efficient. Marble tiling, for example, must be cleaned with agents that are free of a high acid content, as this has the potential to cause irreversible damage to the appearance of the marble. Other stone surfaces may need a specific type of cleaning chemical to lift out any tough stains that have embedded themselves.
