Why Schedule Professional Saltillo Tile Cleaning Services?
As beautiful as Saltillo tile is, it tends to require an inconvenient amount of cleaning. We recommend that homeowners sweep and mop at least once or twice per week (more often for households with kids and pets). It’s also best to change the mop water multiple times during mopping to keep the tile looking at its best.
However, even if you meticulously clean your Saltillo tile floors on a regular basis, you will notice that they gradually become dingy. This is due to the accumulation of ground-in dirt that can be virtually impossible to remove with a mop alone. Another consideration is the grout lines. Because Saltillo tile is low-fired in the kiln over an extended period of time, it naturally develops irregularities in both color and shape. This gives it that pleasing rustic look, but it also means that the installers need to leave wider grout lines than they would for other types of tile. As every homeowner knows all too well, those grout lines can quickly turn dark with accumulated grime, and no amount of mopping is enough to fix the situation.
This is why homeowners and commercial property owners with Saltillo tile floors are advised to schedule professional Saltillo tile cleaning regularly. Depending on the amount of foot traffic your floor receives, you should expect to need professional cleaning on an annual basis.
