We’ve spent years doing our homework and scouring the industry for the best tools and cleaning solutions to employ with our tile and grout cleaning services. With our truck-mounted hot water extraction equipment and specialized cleaning tools, we provide “A Deeper Kind of Clean” for your ceramic tile and grout, concrete, and stone. Any industry pro can attest to our results, and our team is confident in their ability to provide you with the best possible cleaning solutions. Grout Sealant Ceramic tile often has a glazed finish that accumulates soil on the surface. This hard surface is applied at the factory, making it resistant to stains caused by everyday soil and wear. Grout lines, on the other hand, are porous and absorb everything from spills to dirty mop water. Over time, grout lines become discolored, making your otherwise clean floors, back splashes, and wall tiles appear unsightly. We take special care to thoroughly clean the face of your tiles with a hot water extraction process, and then implement an even more thorough cleaning process to remove dirt and discolorants from your grout lines; as we said earlier, we’re providing a Deeper Kind of Clean. Unless grout lines are sealed after cleaning, they’ll immediately become susceptible to dirt, debris, and discoloration again. To keep stains at bay and slow the discolorization process, we apply a heavy-duty grout sealer; a service for which other cleaning companies would charge an additional fee. At Woodard, this added level of protection is part of our standard cleaning process. We just see it as finishing the job right and won’t leave until your floor looks like new. When you work with us, you’ll find that the “extras” are never extra.
