If you’re contemplating getting a professional tile and grout cleaning company in, but don’t know how much you can expect to pay, this is the article for you.
Here we’ll discuss whether there is an average cost for professional tile and grout cleaning services, if you can do such things yourself and where to go for help from the experts.
Is There an Average Price for Professional Tile & Grout Cleaning Services?
Generally speaking, professional tile and grout cleaning services can cost you a couple of hundred dollars. However, this does differ from company to company, as there are certain factors that come into play when estimating your quote.
Factors that Influence Cost of Professional Tile & Grout Cleaning Services
When estimating the cost of your professional tile and grout cleaning services, professional companies like ours will take into account a number of different elements that will affect your quote. In this section, we’ll discuss some of the most common elements that influence what you can expect to pay.
Size of Room
One of the main factors that professionals need to consider when estimating the cost of your tile and grout cleaning service is the size of your room, and whether you only need one tiled floor serviced or you want multiple rooms completed.
The smaller the room, the less you are likely to pay. The bigger the room, the more expensive the financial outlay.
Type of Tile & Service Required
The type of tile and the service required to clean them will often influence the cost of your tile and grout cleaning service. This is due to the nature of the tile, and the type of treatments it can withstand.
Condition of Tiles & Grout
The current condition of your tiles or how long they’ve been in place may also influence the type of service required and what our professional team members need to do in order to get them looking like new.
For instance, damaged or cracked tiles that have aged badly may require a different service than tiles in other areas of the property.
This in turn will influence the type of products used, how long the process will take and a number of other things which help determine the price.
One of the processes we sometimes use when cleaning tile and grout is the application of sealant. This is done to protect your tile from wear and tear, stains and other common concerns.
If your tiles are intact and your sealant is still providing adequate protection, there may be no need to reapply sealant. But, if your sealant needs updating in order to maintain the integrity of your tiles, it will probably mean an increase in your quote.
Where the Tile is
Just as the cost of tile and grout services can be influenced by the type of tiles you have, it also depends on where the tile is. This is because high traffic areas, like the kitchen or bathroom may require a more intensive service, or one that takes longer to complete than that of your old disused sunroom (for example).
Another consideration that falls into the category of where your tile is (and influences the cost of your service), comes down to access.
At Sun Dry we – and professionals like us – often have to carry commercial grade equipment. As such, access to your tiled floor is an issue we have to keep in mind when providing you with a fair and accurate quote for services rendered.
Can You Complete Tile & Grout Cleaning Yourself?
There are any number of equipment hiring facilities around that will provide you with the tools to complete tile and grout cleaning yourself. But it is a labour-intensive, time-consuming job and the fact of the matter is even some of that equipment won’t be as effective as what professionals have.
