The first of April marks the beginning of “Spring Cleaning” for Americans as millions scurry throughout their homes to clean and clear their belongings to obtain a healthier living space. According to the American Cleaning Institute (ACI), 77% are now participating in the nationwide event which marks an all-time record. The average spring cleaning takes six days to complete, but the actual meaning of “cleaning” differs by age group. And when it comes to millennials, the majority of the newest group of adult spring cleaners opt for a light or general form of cleanliness annually and only perform a thorough spring clean once every few years. Of course, that also means important parts of the home such as tile and grout will likely either go untouched or remain filthy for yet another year without the help of the pros. But why should you consider enlisting professional tile and grout cleaning services?
Save Yourself the Time and Hassle
Most people who spring clean have to fit their cleaning time around work, family, and life demands. Starting in one room and working until its completed ensures each chosen location will receive equal attention, but just imagine what else could you do during that time. Hiring the pros to help clean your home can do wonders for your health and sanity while letting you attend to more enjoyable matters like bonding with your loved ones.
Professional Tile and Grout Cleaning Catches and Controls Mold
Mold can grow in any moderately dark, damp, and warm area, so the bathroom and kitchen are perfect locations for the contaminants. But mold doesn’t just live on tile and grout. It begins around the pipes, grows inside the walls, spreads between the cracks, and eventually, escapes into the grout or room surfaces. Opting to get on your hands and knees to scrub the grout with a toothbrush often results in grinding the mold back into the grout or inhaling dangerous bleach or cleaner fumes. And that’s the best-case scenarios for those fortunate enough to not have mold-related allergies. Professional tile and grout cleaners can catch and control the mold so you can breathe easier.
The Pros Thoroughly Clean and Seal
The pollutants that determine indoor air quality haven’t been thoroughly tested compared to outdoor pollutants. But according to scientific journals, many factors can cause your home’s air quality to be 100 times more toxic than outdoor air. Dust mite waste is among the top causes of chronic respiratory conditions and allergies. Dust mites can’t be seen, but they spread rapidly throughout grout. Professional grout cleaners can clean dirt and grime along with removing dust mites and other contaminants from the grout and tile in your home. And once the grout is clean, the pros can seal it properly to keep it that way.
Professional Tile and Grout Cleaning Is Safe and Cost Effective
Professional tile and grout cleaning isn’t cheap, but it can be quite cost-effective in the long run. Professionals have the experience, equipment, and cleaning agents needed to do the job right the first time. There’s no guesswork or unnecessary expenses.
