In both commercial and residential settings, tile and grout are heavily depended upon in locations that are subjected to tough environmental factors. In kitchens and bathrooms, moisture is a constant presence; in entryways, heavy foot traffic that drags in outdoor elements is a daily occurrence. All of this and more can result in your tile and grout growing discolored and damaged. This is why we recommend annual professional tile and grout cleaning provided by our experts here at ServiceMaster of the Shore Area. We are happy to service home and business owners alike in the Ocean City, NJ, and Egg Harbor Township, NJ areas.
Tile discoloration occurs naturally over time as protective elements wear out; however, discoloration is only the beginning of potential problems. Grout lines also weaken to the point that tiles can become loose, and unwanted materials (such as dirt, other debris, and mold) work their way into these lines. This not only causes a room to lose its appeal, but it poses a safety hazard, as well.
Mold growth within grout lines is a major concern because of how well these lines can trap moisture when they are damaged. This may seem minor at first if it occurs in isolated areas, but mold is notorious for spreading swiftly, which is why you must contact professionals right away if you find it in your grout lines. Mold spores are released continuously, especially if the mold is cleaned improperly. This leads to further mold growth and potential health risks (such as allergic reactions, respiratory infections, and worse) for you and your loved ones.
