No More Hands & Knees Scrubbing of Your Tile & Grout!

Cleaning tile floors by hand is hard work. It’s messy, uncomfortable and impossible to get the deep-clean results that come with professional tile and grout cleaning like we offer at Stanley Steemer. That’s because grout, which is a porous material, collects dirt, grime and spills, often discoloring the surface. Regular mopping and spot cleaning don’t reach the hidden dirt that lies deep within the pores of your grout lines. Our professional tile and grout cleaning service and an application of clear grout sealant (optional) restores the look of your floors. An application of color seal makes them look like new. San Diego homeowners swear by our tile and grout cleaning service, and we know you will, too!

At Stanley Steemer our tile cleaning method achieves far better results than any hand cleaning could ever do. Our trained technicians begin by inspecting your floor to determine the best treatment process and the proper cleaning agent. Next, our state-of-the-art tile cleaning process yields a high-pressure water and vacuum combination that extracts dirt from deep within the tile and the pores of your grout. Although it’s safe and gentle on your floors, our unique tile and grout cleaning equipment is highly effective.

So the next time you’re thinking about getting your tile and grout cleaned, don’t pull out the bucket and scrub brush – call Stanley Steemer in San Diego for best results – guaranteed!

Frequently Asked Questions

Just like carpet, dirt builds up over time dulling your tile’s appearance and discoloring your grout. A thorough, professional tile & grout cleaning is the only way to remove the deep-down dirt.
We use a high pressure rotary tool with dual rotating jets. This is combined with the same truck-mounted steam/pressure cleaning we use to deep clean your carpet. We use tile and grout specific cleaners that strip away any waxy build-up and remove the dirt embedded in the grout lines.
Typically, an area is a room that is up to 300 square feet (that is 15 x 20 or approximately the size of a two-car garage). Living room/dining room combos are considered two areas. Any area over 300 square feet but less than 600 square feet is priced as two areas. Non-standard areas (baths, halls, entry’s, landings, walk-in-closets, etc.) are priced separately from the standard areas, usually at a lesser price and may be up to 50 sf to be counted as one area. Over 50 sf for non-standard areas would be considered two areas for pricing. Our crew will measure any areas they think may be oversized before charging it as two areas.
Grout is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Having a sealant applied will help create a protective barrier, giving you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout. The type of sealant you choose will determine the degree of stain resistance.
As with carpet, many factors must be considered when determining the frequency of cleaning. Foot traffic, children, pets, and routine floor maintenance will affect how often you need to have your tile & grout cleaned.
For an average size room (up to 300 square feet), it typically takes 30–60 minutes to clean the tile & grout. This can vary based on a number of factors including the size of the tile, amount of soil in the grout lines, and room configuration. If you choose to have sealant added, it typically takes 2–3 hours to complete the entire process.
We are happy to work with you to correct any situation that may arise. In some cases this can mean spot cleaning specific areas of concern or even completely re-cleaning the area in question. In the end, we’re not satisfied until you are.
