Did you know that 85 percent of the U.S.A has hard water? Certain areas of the country are considered to have “worse” water compared to others. Unfortunately, Chattanooga is not an exception as its water has a very high mineral content, particularly calcium and lime. You must have noticed that when water evaporates, it leaves a layer of residue that can be extremely hard to clean. When this deposit is not treated appropriately and builds up in your shower or sinks, this could become a real problem to deal with by yourself.

Water collects mineral deposits as it relocates through underground networks of sedimentary rock and also chalk. While it’s normal for consumption in regulated quantities, bathing or cooking, hard water wreaks havoc on grout and also tile. It leaves undesirable white or orange residue on ceramic tile and caulk, and also this lime range accumulation can ultimately damage the surface up to the extent when a repair is needed.

Why Tile & Grout Get Dirty So Fast?

Grout is a porous material, a concrete that is full of microscopic holes. If the grout is applied without sealing, all those little pores are vulnerable to capturing every bit of dirt, dust and also grime that comes their way. When hard water contacts with grout– like, every single time you shower or accidentally spilling water on the tiled flooring– it leaks into the cement. When it dries out, the water is gone, yet the calcium and also lime stay there. Proper tile and grout cleaning services as carried out by Chattanooga Carpet Cleaning involve utilizing a modern specialized  steam technology to free the material influenced in the porous cement, as well as wash it away, leaving nothing but tidy, fresh grout in its place.

DIY Doesn’t Work

Cement and also ceramic tile cleansing on your own does not really aid. The trouble with cleaning grout and also floor tiles covered in limescale accumulation is that you’re utilizing the very same water that deposited the minerals in the first place. As much as you attempt to relocate promptly to clean as well as dry the tile and grout, that water still has time to permeate the grout’s pores, only intensifying the problem. That’s why a grout cleaning service is so vital.
