Do it Yourself vs. Hiring a Tile and Grout Cleaning Service

Tile and Grout Cleaning by yourself with a mop, bucket, and scrub-brush can be fairly challenging to say the least!  Even with the best store-bought cleaners, it takes lots of time and elbow grease to loosen the dirt that is deeply embedded in your porous tile and grout.

You might use a mop and bucket to try to pick up all that dirt but as soon as you put your mop back in the bucket the water becomes dirty, and guess what?  Now you’re cleaning with dirty water! The dirty water then gets splashed around and goes right back into those porous grout lines that you’ve just cleaned.  So if you feel like you’re getting nowhere fast, you’re probably right!  The good news is, there’s a much better tile and grout cleaning method.

Say goodbye to ALL the dirt!!!

Our powerful tile floor deep cleaning system can achieve far better results in a fraction of the time. We use very hot water, high water pressure, and intense suction power to lift and extract deeply embedded dirt up and out from your tile and grout. All the dirt goes back into our cleaning van, never to be seen again! The process is similar to our carpet cleaning method but at higher levels, more appropriate for tile and grout.  Here are the details as to how we achieve such fantastic results…


The first step in our tile and grout cleaning process is to remove all the dirt from your tile surface and grout lines.  We do this by first spraying an environmentally friendly alkaline pre-spray (Procyon) over your entire floor.  This cleaning agent penetrates way down deep inside your dirty tile and grout, loosening up all the dirt and grime that may have been left there for years. 

After a few minutes of dwell time, we then flush out the dirt (and all the other nasties) with very hot water and at high-pressure, forcing the dirt up and out and back into our cleaning van.  It’s much like a pressure washing system, but in this case, all the water stays inside the blue tile and grout cleaning equipment that you see in the pictures below.

The process is so thorough it will even pass the white glove test!  And with a temperature of over 200 degrees Fahrenheit (hot enough to kill the bacteria in your floor) we guarantee a sanitized floor when we’re done with the tile cleaning.  With this first step alone; we often see tremendous improvement, as the video below demonstrates.


Once we’ve removed all the dirt with our alkaline tile and grout cleaning process, we can then tell if your grout lines have been stained. If so, you may want us to apply a grout whitener to your grout lines. The grout whitener is on the acid side of the pH spectrum. No worries! This is not one of those dangerous types of acid.

Cleaning with a grout whitener will remove stains typically found around sinks, stoves, dishwashers, and eating areas. This process makes black grout lines blacker and white grout lines whiter and brighter.

We apply the grout whitener directly to the grout, letting it soak in and dwell for a few minutes. We then extract the whitener back into our cleaning van. We typically see the entire floor looking like new after this second step.

If you schedule a tile and grout cleaning with ALL CLEAN!, LLC there will be no obligation to do this second step. If you’d like; we can do a little experiment on a few grout lines just to see if this cleaning process is worth the additional cost to you.  

There is one exception though, and that is with bathrooms for which we have a fixed rate. We always apply grout whitener when cleaning bathrooms because the staining of bathroom floors is inevitable. Using this process on a bathroom floor usually yields tremendous results!


If you find your tile and grout looking pristine after the first two stages (like it did when it was brand new) you may want to consider sealing your grout lines. Grout sealing is exactly as the name implies. Your porous grout lines are sealed, making them less penetrable to dirt and stains.

Professional tile cleaning will still be advised on an annual basis, but sealing will make it easier for you to clean in the interim. Please keep in mind that if you decide to seal your grout lines, steps 1 and 2 are required in order to achieve the best results possible.  If either of the first 2 steps are omitted, then any pre-existing dirt or stains will be sealed in as well.  We always want to make your tile and grout look their very best before sealing in your grout lines!

Do you recommend color sealing grout lines?

We do not recommend or offer color grouting or color sealing as we’ve seen flaking and chipping (from when other companies have used this process).  It may look good at first, but in our opinion, it’s not a good long-term solution.

Should I clean or repair my grout lines? Which comes first?

We’ve gone into many homes where the customer has matched their new grout repair to what they thought was the color of their grout, but had actually matched it to dirty grout lines!  We recommend cleaning first so that this never happens!
