Tile and grout are notoriously difficult to clean.

Call Tile and Grout Cleaning Services in New York, and we'll come to the rescue NYC Steam Cleaning's professional Tile Cleaning and Grout Cleaning process will keep your tile surfaces, grout lines and countertops clean and fresh. We can boldly go where bottled cleaners and household mops have never gone before!
What makes tile cleaning and grout cleaning (including colored grout cleaning) so difficult? Dirt and contaminants build up over time, making your tiles look dull, and causing grout to darken and appear discolored. Home cleaning methods simply can't get at the built-up, ground-in dirt that has settled in hard-to-reach places. Dirt trapped in the pores of tile and grout is especially difficult to remove with traditional cleaning solutions.
Thankfully, NYC Professional Tile and Grout Cleaning's powerful cleaning system safely cleans floors, showers, and countertops by quickly removing dirt and contaminants. Our Tile Cleaning and Grout Cleaning process uses heat, a specialized cleaning solution, and vacuum power to remove the dirt that homeowners can't. We complete the job with a high-pressure rinse.
After cleaning your tile and grout, our professional technicians will apply a penetrating sealer to protect grout against mildew and staining for up to two years. And basic Grout Cleaning isn't the only service we provide. If you have colored grout in your kitchen or bathroom or between other tile surfaces, our special Grout Color Sealing process will protect it.

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.
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.
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.
We recommend that you wait 30 minutes before walking on the floor to allow the sealant to dry. It will take 24 hours for the sealant to cure completely, so we suggest that you avoid any liquid coming in contact with the sealant during that time.
To preserve the life of the sealant, we recommend that you use a neutral cleaner on your floor. Rinsing after mopping will also help keep your floors looking their best. You will want to avoid bleach and other harsh chemical cleaners as these can wear away at the sealant and cause it to break down prematurely
Clear seal is an invisible layer of protection that penetrates into the pores of the grout. This gives you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout, however, it is not waterproof.
