We Clean floors and showers!

Don't Re-Tile, Let us Clean it!

Tile cleaning is a process that will dramatically improve the appearance of a tiled area at a fraction of the cost of replacing the tiles. After all, it is not always the tile that makes an area look ugly but often the unsightly, discolored grout.

Look at it this way, the grout is the frame around the picture. If the frame is ugly it makes the picture look ugly too!


What is grout and tile cleaning?
Using a specially using pressure steam, the technician removes the grim from grout and tiles. Like any task, the preparation is the most important part of the final outcome. 

Sealing after Regrouting
Once an area has been cleaned, it is strongly recommended that the grout be sealed to prolong the life of the new grout. Grout sealing is a process whereby our technicians apply a water based sealer to the new grout. This sealer will help to protect the clean grout, make it easier to clean and prevent staining and premature decay.


Areas suitable for cleaning and sealing
cleaning and sealing is suitable for a variety of tiled areas, including but not limited to the following:

  • Showers
  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchen splash-backs
  • Floors
  • counter tops
  • fireplace


Why clean and seal? - Benefits of cleaning
Price – Your tiled areas can look "as new" for a fraction of the cost of retiling or a full renovation. Retiling / full renovation usually including the following costs:

  • The new tiles themselves
  • Removal & disposal of the old tiles
  • Charge for laying and grouting the new tiles
  • And in the bathroom, possibly also
  • Plumbing
  • Waterproofing
  • Replacement fixtures and fitting (taps, toilet, bath, vanity, shower screen, towel rails)
  • Time – In, out and done in a day or two rather than coordinating plumbers and tilers and other tradesmen over multiple visits.
  • Convenience – cleaning can usually be carried out with much less down time than retiling or a full renovation.
  • Environment – in today’s disposable society, why strip and replace a structurally sound tiled area to end up in land fill? A simple make-over will bring it up looking as new! Would you throw out a picture just because the frame is dirty???

Steam cleaning is a 'green' solution, saving on carbon emissions compared with tile replacement. Replacing / retiling is a poor option in an age where conservation is of concern. Do your bit to help save the environment.

  Increase your property value– A well presented property can add thousands of dollars to the selling price, sell quicker and appeal to a broader range of buyers. Aside from the kitchen, which most home buyers consider to be the most important room in the house, the bathrooms are considered a key selling point. It makes sense to spend a fraction of the selling price on ensuring your home is presented and shown to it’s maximum potential by being clean and sanitized.

  Rental Property– A well presented property will attract tenants, may justify a higher rent and will generally lease quicker. An investment property is usually one of your most important assets. It makes sense to spend a fraction of its value in keeping the property well maintained and preventing problems from developing in the long-run.
