The day after Thanksgiving – – Black Friday – – and thousands of North Texans flocked to the malls and stores to snatch up the juiciest of deals. In fact, for the savvy shopper, Black Friday just may be the most beautiful day of the year.
While black may be the color of choice for those seeking out bargains, black is most certainly not a color you want to see in your grout! If you’re seeing black in your grout, you’re probably looking at mold.
If this describes some of the floor or countertops in your kitchen or bathroom, you’re probably wondering what you should do. Obviously you need and want your grout cleaner. So, the question arises: do you do it yourself or do you hire a professional grout cleaner? In the previous blog, we discussed some of the pros and cons of doing it yourself. It didn’t take long before it became obvious; your best bet is to hire a professional to get your grout clean.
To help solidify your decision, here are some valid reasons for hiring a professional.
We know that grout is porous in nature. This makes it the perfect surface to absorb dirt, grime and spills. Over time, this can make your floor or countertop look dingy and worse – a breeding ground for bacteria.
- A professional has the proper, commercial grade equipment to get your grout truly clean.
Toss that old toothbrush and forget scrubbing on your hands and knees.
- The professional uses commercial solutions to rid your grout of grease, dirt, mold, mildew, lime and bacteria.
Forget the homemade or store bought cleaners. They are harsh on your skin, clothes…and the fumes are problematic for the young, the elderly and those with respiratory issues.
- A professional not only gets your grout clean, but can apply a special grout sealant to protect your grout from future spills and stains.
The bottom line: hiring a professional to clean your grout just makes sense. It’s a great way to save your knees, back, and time. If your grout is looking “sick”, it’s time to call Dr. Clean!
