Tile & Grout
Tile and Grout Services
When it comes to your home, we are the service company you can call on to get your floors back to how they looked when they were first installed. In fact, after our free demonstrations, that is the one comment we hear the most. Our service not only cleans but we also restore your floors to like new condition by sanitizing, renewing and protecting them. We keep them looking their best and make them easier to clean all throughout the year. Our job is to make your job simpler and easier!
Our services provide the appearance you want your family and friends to know you for – clean, bright, fresh-smelling and always welcoming! It’s a great feeling to have that “spring cleaning” feel again, and that is exactly what we can do for you.
We can make your hard floors the safest floors to walk on again. Slips, trips and falls are drastically reduced by the clean floor we leave behind. Ask us about the specialty applications that we offer that provide you true, anti-slip floors that can greatly reduce potential slips, including in your shower.
Some questions or statements we hear are: “Do I really need my floors cleaned professionally? My tiles look great as they are!” Or, “I scrub my floors and mop them regularly.” These are valid statements but here is what we have found: most people are concerned about the surface of their tile, but do not realize the condition of their grout. Ahh, now we are talking. Not only do we deep clean the micro-pores on your tile surface, but we also introduce our restoration process to your heavily germ-layered grout joints, that are filled with odor-causing bacteria. When all is said and done, we provide you ultimate CLEAN!
Without the expensive costs of remodeling, we can provide much more than just a clean shower. We can color seal the grout, and we can apply ForceShield to the walls and floor. ForceShield is an anti-microbial sealant that will keep your shower mold-free and mildew-free. Keep in mind that your shower will still need to be cleaned, but you will be amazed at how much easier the cleaning process is when you do clean it!
Do you have natural stone? This is our specialty! We love natural stone. We implement the best practices in the industry for its care and the preservation of the finest attributes of its surface. We offer the best in natural stone sealing and protection also. Whether it is fine travertine, marble, slate, or luxurious granite, there is nothing we can’t help you clean, restore, enhance and protect!
After having restored your surfaces outside and inside, we can apply a topical coating to those surfaces that some call “liquid glass” that ensures an eye popping experience. This product not only enhances a stone’s natural appearance, but it’s primary outside function is mold mitigation. It is also hydrophobic (repels water on the surface) which keeps water from penetrating deep down, preventing future problems.
Can you imagine not having to clean as often AND not having mold/mildew growth? This is what NASA, the Kennedy Space Center, the University of Florida and the University of Miami have appreciated with the usage of our specialty coatings for years. The significant savings and reduced hassle is HUGE for residences, also!
Any Exterior Surface
We can fully take care of the outside of your home with the same care and finesse that we demonstrated inside. Any surface – everywhere. This includes all concrete, walls, decks, patios and expensive stone pavers. We make all surfaces truly look like new again.
We do our best to deliver the satisfaction you have come to expect from a surface restoration company. We love to serve, and we can’t wait to show you how!

Your Largest Air Filter is Your Carpet
Don’t wait until your carpets are dirty. Call us today to have them cleaned, restored and treated! Why do we stress this? Did you know that your carpet is the largest air filter in your home? Now, you are already changing your air conditioning filter every three months for several reasons – (1) to keep your HVAC running at optimal efficiency and (2) to keep the allergens and dust to a minimum so you can breathe and live better. However, the bigger concern is that this is the first of three important factors that affect the cleanliness of your home’s air!
The second step is properly vacuuming your carpets. We are serious about helping you stay healthier and keeping that multi-thousand dollar investment looking its best for as long as possible. If your vacuum has a bag, it should be changed at 1/3 fill capacity, the vacuum air filters should be changed every 3 months, the vacuum belt should be replaced every six to twelve months, and finally, the brush roll should be cleaned regularly. (If you can’t do that last step, we can do it for you when we are done cleaning your carpets.)
Finally, you should have your carpets cleaned once a year (at minimum) with a certified hot water extraction truck-mounted system.
The Necessity of a Truck-Mounted Cleaning System
Why truck mounted? Great question! Cleaning your carpets is similar to washing your clothes. The idea is to emulsify the soil (get the soil suspended in water) to the point where it can be extracted. Sounds simple? Yes and no. Most people can do a great job of getting their own surfactants (soap) or emulsifiers and suspend that soil themselves (via rental units). But when it comes to extraction, the rental units and upright carpet cleaners fail, beginning a trend of future wear and tear, because your carpet gets dirtier at a faster rate.
Another advantage to a truck mounted system is that all the soil will be extracted if it is properly suspended in water. What many people don’t realize is that the dryer that the carpet is left after the initial cleaning process, the more soil was extracted in the process. This is possible only if the soil was suspended properly (note: dry cleaning your carpet is not nearly as effective). The leading carpet manufacturers will tell you that hot water extraction is the recommended method to clean the carpet, in order to keep its warranty valid. Here’s an example. So, the bottom line is that they don’t want you to have to replace your carpet. They would like you to take care of it for the lifetime of your home. Having your home professionally cleaned with hot water extraction every 12-18 months is recommended, and to have it done even more frequently for heavier trafficked areas.
This may seem very technical, but that last part is a very real situation in our day and age. There are many truck mounted systems available that do an okay job of extracting the water they used to suspend the soil in your carpet. This means you might have a cleaner carpet, but one that is not 100% clean. In order to get your carpet its cleanest, you must find a professional that provides the strongest amount of vacuum and the best drying techniques. Unfortunately, there are no real measurements to know for sure, but with the above cleaning theory stated, all you can control is hiring a professional who will do the job right every time. And yes, that’s where we will serve you best.

Have Your Floors Cleaned at Least Once a Year
Why once a year? In some cases it might even need to be cleaned more often. Starting with once a year is better than some people do now. Even when properly vacuuming your carpets, there is only so much soil your vacuum can extract. This means the sand that your vacuum leaves behind not only gives your carpet a dull look but it is wearing off the factory protection. When that protection wears out, then the carpet fibers begin to wear out. This not only discolors them, but it leaves your carpet very vulnerable to future staining from foot traffic, spills and the like. Not good! Then, when you add your walking around barefoot and your pets, this only adds to the oily residue that attracts more soil to your carpet. Now you have soil, mixed with oils, cooking smells, children, pets and air pollutants from outside air contaminants… WOW! What a dirty carpet! Having your carpet thoroughly cleaned at least once a year will remove these oils, and will drastically prevent your carpet’s wear.
Think about this: you get dressed for the day, you wear those clothes all day, then you come home and sit down on your furniture. You rub off a little oil, sweat, dirt, dust, on your sofa arms and seating. The next day you shower, change your clothes and do it all over again. But what have you done with your sofa that you’ve been getting oily and dirty? Some have their furniture cleaned once a year, some every two years, and some have never cleaned their furniture at all! We are not here to beat you up, only to get you thinking about a very simple neglected area. Furniture should also be cleaned regularly, just like other home surfaces, and just like your own clothes. We can help with this aspect of regular home maintenance, too. We can restore furniture that some might think is beyond hope, at a fraction of the price of purchasing replacement furniture! You will be impressed with our results.
