Tile and Grout Floor Care Guide

Daily Maintenance of Tile and Grout

1. Sweep or vacuum your floor to remove any dust or loose soil

2. Mist the floor with a neutral cleaner and allow it to dwell for about 30-60 seconds.

3. Buff the floor dry with a flat microfiber mop (similar to a Swiffer). The area should dry within 60 seconds after buffing.

4. Replace microfiber mop pad when it gets dirty or overly saturated.


  • Vacuum your floor frequently to remove loose dirt and dust.
  • Frequently clean high traffic areas with a neutral cleaner and microfiber mop, switching pads when they get overly damp or dirty.
  • Clean up pet urine and spills right away. Always blot up any liquid then clean the area with Easy Oxy and a soft bristle brush and towel/rag.
  • Put doormats or runners near exterior door to catch as much dirt as possible. Regularly have these cleaned.
  • Use a soft bristle brush to clean stubborn areas. (similar to a toothbrush)
  • Keep exterior entry points clean of dirt, leaves and other soils.
  • Make sure cleaner is a rinseless cleaner.


  • Avoid using vinegar, bleach, or ammonia to clean grout. These will break down the grout over time causing it to crack, deteriorate or cause holes, all which can allow dirt and stains to get deep below the surface and cause permanent discoloration or damage.
  • Avoid over-wetting floors causing puddling. Water can pick up dirt and roll into the grout lines where it pulls the dirt deep into the grout’s pores.
  • Don’t use metal brushes on grout. Metal brushes can abrade grout lines and can discolor grout lines.
  • Don’t use mop n glow or spray polish products.

Tile Maintenance Recommendations

  • Having your grout sealed with a penetrating sealer or color seal is recommended and will help keep dirt and stains closer to the surface. This gives cleaners the best chance to remove these contaminants.
  • It is recommended that grout be resealed every 1-3 years. This is most important in the high traffic areas and areas that are most likely to be exposed to spills
  • To keep your tile and grout looking it’s best and to minimize the chance of permanent staining we recommend that most households have their floor cleaned every 12 months. For households with large pets, multiple smaller pets or multiple kids under the age of 14, a bi-annual or cleaning every 6 months may be best.

We just moved in and Beyond Clean Tile got our tile looking like we were moving into a new house. We added an additional service which involved replacing caulking in shower – again, making it look new. Jim was extremely knowledgeable and presented a zero-pressure quote. Money very well spent.

Justin, from Beyond Clean Tile, did a terrific job. My granite countertops and floor tile were over 25 years and looking a little tired at best. He cleaned, polished and sealed them. The original countertop seams were not good, one of them was not even level. It was a tough job but he made them look great. My only complaint was why did I not call them years ago, but you can be sure I will be seeing them again. Pat

Beyond Clean Tile efficiently and professionally did all of the tile cleaning, tile repair and grouting projects around the house for years. Wish I had called them sooner.

The Beyond Clean Tile team has done wonders for my tile twice! The glass wall in my shower, which I scrubbed and scrubbed with no visible improvement, is now sparkling clean. And my tile floors, which I thought looked pretty darn good, look amazing. I highly recommend Beyond Clean Tile. They will be back when the weather warms up to repair and improve the granite in our outdoor kitchen.

Beyond Clean is the best. I have travertine floors in my new home. Beyond Clean came in showed me the difference between cleaning them and buffing. He took his time to make sure I understood everything he was doing. I will definitely use them again if needed. Great company. Wish I had before and after photos

Above and beyond service, knowledge and professionalism! Jim and Randy gave careful attention to detail in cleaning the floors and repairs in a travertine shower. Jim also took time to teach us how to care for the stone in our home and provided a wealth of resources for products and care tips. Service is amazing and the pricing is very reasonable, as well. Highly recommend!
