Your Restroom Tile and Grout is Dirty – That’s a Bad Thing!
One surefire way to keep clients, visitors, and staff away from your facility is by not having your restroom tile and grout properly maintained.
Not only is dirty tile and grout gross and embarrassing to look at, but it can also be a breeding-ground for disease-causing bacteria (yes, you heard that right!).
One simple way to tell if enough attention is paid to your restroom tile and grout is to look at the grout coloring. If the grout lines are discolored then it’s time to consider a restorative cleaning to improve the appearance and extract harmful dirt, debris, and disease causing bacteria from the tile and grout.
In conjunction with a restorative cleaning, it is also good to have a regular cleaning maintenance program in place. Of course, you want to make sure to go with a maintenance process that not only cleans for appearance and health, but also doesn’t require the use of cleaning chemicals and methods that are hazardous to the environment.
Many people don’t know this, but most tile and grout cleaning methods use harsh chemicals that are toxic for you, your building occupants and visitors, and the environment.
Liquid based grout cleaners, for instance, often contain bleach and acid, which emits noxious fumes. Prolonged exposure to these chemicals can cause serious harm to your health, especially if the area is not properly ventilated. Also, in extreme situations, these chemicals can erode away the grout surface over long-term use.
This is why it’s important to go with a reputable cleaning company that uses healthier processes. If the tile and grout maintenance process being used by the cleaning company is certified by Green Seal than even better! Maintenance tile and grout processes that employ the use of Green Seal certified processes use products that are USDA certified 100% bio-based and biodegradable and have earned the USDA BioPreferred designation. And the products used as part of the extraction process are manufactured in an EPA facility.
