Zerorez® Tile Cleaning FAQ’s
Everything you've ever wanted to know about Zerorez® Tile Cleaning summed up in one spot! Let's get started with some of our most common Zerorez® Tile Cleaning FAQ's:
How often should I get my tile professionally cleaned?
Most definitely our most commonly asked question of all, so why not answer this one first, eh? To make it really short and sweet, we suggest having your tile professionally cleaned a minimum of once a year.
Much like your carpets, you'll want to consider having your tile cleaned more often (perhaps every 6 months) depending on your household wear-and-tear. By this we mean the amount of traffic your tile floors see- i.e. pets, kids, parties, etc..
In fact, let's use that as a segway into our next topic:
Is a Zerorez® tile cleaning safe for pets and kids?
One of the greatest benefits of using Zerorez® Phoenix for your floor cleaning endeavors might be because our cleaning method was made for the safety of your pets and kids!
We understand how much your babies and fur babies mean to you! They mean the world to us too - which is why our cleaning method was designed for their safety.
We use Powered Water®- a patented Zerorez® technology-enhanced water that is electrolyzed and oxidized to create a powerful cleaning solution without harmful toxins or chemicals.
In other words, we are simply cleaning your carpets, tile, couches, and rugs with the earth's natural cleanser- WATER! Zerorez® Phoenix ensures the safety of your kids and pets by using non-toxic water to clean.
How does our process work?
That Powered Water® we talked about? Well, that is applied with a high-pressure spray that not only loosens embedded dirt and cleans the material but simultaneously helps to prevent stains and soiling, by not leaving behind sticky residue!
Then, of course, it is extracted with a powerful airflow wand. The zr wand™ that is used recaptures two times the amount of water than that of other cleaning company's tools!
After this, we can apply our signature tile and grout sealing to help your tile avoid further wear-and-tear and stain absorption- but we'll talk more in detail down below in our Zerorez® Tile Cleaning FAQ's.
Why you guys instead of another company?
Typically, harsh chemicals, detergents, and cleaners are used for a traditional professional tile cleaning (by which we mean, not a Zerorez® cleaning). Those chemicals/soaps dry into your tile and grout's natural pores, causing that sticky residue magnet we talked about.
Because of our Zerorez® Powered Water®, we have the advantage of not leaving dirt-attracting residues behind on your tile/grout.
This makes it so we don't need to use harmful soaps or detergents to clean your tile and grout- cleaners that only cause sticky residue.
Our process is designed to completely wash your tile and grout with high-pressured water, while simultaneously suctioning the water mixture back up.
This is unlike traditional cleaners, whose technology may not always be able to achieve the same amount of water removal, therefore leaving behind quite a bit of their soapy water mixture for the tile/grout to soak up.
Even if you were to take away the porous, soap-soaking nature of tile and grout, residues will always attract more dirt and grime because of it's sticky nature.
Therefore, if the residue is left behind to soak into your tile/grout it means that it will only get filthier faster. So that's pretty much a double whammy of holding gunk and grime in!
So how can we avoid this? Take a peek at the next of our Zerorez® Tile Cleaning FAQ's:
What is Tile and Grout Sealing?
To choose to seal your tile and grout, you must first know what it is and what it does for your home.
Tile and grout sealer is a liquid coat we can apply to the porous surface of your tile or grout. In short, it protects the tile and grout from natural deterioration, day-to-day wear, and helps to keep your tile cleaner, longer.
Sealers typically protect unglazed tiles and grouts from absorbing stains, dirt, grime, mold, mildew, bacteria, etc..
Sealing tile and grout can either be done yourself or by professional tile cleaners (which is what we suggest).
Specifically, after a good Zerorezification® on your tile and grout, our technicians can apply a sealant to your grout and tile to help create a barrier between those porous surfaces and whatever ends up on them!
Why are some areas blotchy and dark on the grout before a cleaning?
As you now know, tile grout is a dirt magnet!
There are many different kinds—sanded, unsanded, quarry, cementite, and so forth. All of them are porous in nature.
This means that grout soaks up all the dirt, grime and even liquids that wash over it, making it the ultimate dirt magnet!
Grout Sealant is our go-to answer. Tile and grout sealant slows staining, helps make cleaning easier, and prevents unnecessary repair costs!
With the grout pores covered by a sealant, grout becomes much less absorbent.
This means that if a liquid is spilled on the grout, it will not immediately soak into the grout or seep into the edges of the tile, keeping the grout from becoming discolored or blotchy.
