I have used Top to Bottom--for the first time and then for a few more projects. What I learned and experienced--older residential home (a home new to me and I was moving into): **Be specific with precisely what you want him to do. He has an eye for so much more he can do or will do at your location. You may or may not want done now etc. be specific with your task or list of tasks from the start so everyone is on the same page of what is to be done. **He brought up/mentioned the existing, original, non-maintained sliding glass doors--not on my list. He told me specifically what he could do to them to improve them. The results is one reason I called him back. ** Tony Jigante, has real and experienced depth and knowledge to electricity, painting, plumbing, hardware, etc.etc. I was going in acute circles--since other handymen were "professionally making like they were honest and knowledgeable--covering up they were faking it." My experience included--I ended up paying a few dishonest ones and Tony J. fixing their results. In addition, if you do not understand what is going on with plumbing---his knowledge will help resolve. **He has a truck--so he can pick up smaller things--like small pieces of flooring etc from H.Dep or Lowes, etc--if client cannot lift it or doesn't have appropriate car/truck. **Prior to starting, with any home professional, one must ask and agree upon how much it will cost to get that task or list done. If you are on the tightest budget, say so. The results will match price paid. **Tony has organized toolboxes==everything he needs. He will tell you whether he can or cannot do something--and if he wants or needs something--at the start. He did return things I bought and I found them credited on my credit card. I paid in full for a receipt of things he needed. Too late, I learned that if client wants to keep what he doesn't use--one needs to ask. **Your property is safe. I am someone who has repeatedly in life experienced the opposite--including recently. THIS IS A PRIORITY. Being able to leave a person alone in the house is everything. Also, if he brings an assistant, his circle of people are all good people who so appreciate being there. But, you do need to make sure they get done all you you had earlier agreed upon to the satisfaction you agreed upon. ++Schedule ahead. The other reviewer was correct in being upset re: hours late. Reviewer's experience happened to me with Tony three times and had to be permanently resolved. Let Tony tell you what time he can be at your location. But, also, tell him to call 30 minutes ahead of arriving and 15 minutes arriving. Let him know you will leave if he is more than 20 minutes late--so he will call 30 minutes prior to arriving at your location. If possible--in project just leave him the key or figure something out allowing him to access. ++If he doesn't have any other clients on his schedule--he is fine with working weekends. This really helps get things done, too.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How can I get my grout clean?

Dirt, mildew and grime can make your grout lines look downright tragic. If you have the ability, DIY tile and grout cleaning is definitely doable. Your main obstacles are time, project size, availability of the right materials and effort. Your first step in tile and grout cleaning is making sure the surface area is cleaned of basic dirt and buildup and wiped down. Be sure not to use a bleach-based cleaning agent, which could react dangerously with the vinegar used in later steps.

Depending on the delicacy of your tile and grout, it may be wise to start with water and friction before proceeding to a cleaning solution. In the shower you can spray the area while brushing gently, or use a spray bottle filled with warm water on countertops or floors. If water won’t do the trick, try a solution of equal parts warm water and white vinegar, and repeat the gentle brushing motion. This combination should begin to lift dirt and grime from the grout. For additional tile and grout cleaning power, baking soda applied directly to grout lines and sprayed with your water vinegar solution can help suds off sticky grime. If your DIY cleaning solutions aren’t doing the trick, store-bought sprays and pastes may have more cleansing power. Rinse thoroughly after cleaning and enjoy your sparkling clean grout.

Tile and grout cleaning supplies include:

  • Old standard or electric toothbrush
  • Stiff bristle brush
  • Spray bottle
  • White vinegar
  • Commercial grout cleaner

How do professionals clean tile and grout?

If you need tile and grout cleaning and don’t have the time or mobility for scrubbing your entire house on your hands and knees, it’s time to turn to the pros. Tile and grout cleaning professionals have industrial-grade machines designed for the sole task of cleaning the porous materials of grout and tile. Typically, a cleaning pro will come out to assess the job and provide you with a quote. Often they charge per square foot (for example, 75 cents per square foot), with higher prices or an hourly rate for areas that will need hand cleaning. The national average cost for tile and grout cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Once onsite, the pros thoroughly clean the area by wiping or sweeping down and then vacuuming up any dry dirt. Next a chemical tile cleaner is sprayed over the surface, causing dirt to loosen and adhere to the spray; the industry term for this is “suspension.” The pros then clean the floor with professional-strength machines, which often use a combination of steam, brushes and vacuum to loosen, agitate and lift entrenched dirt. Your floor is then rinsed, removing all the spray. Usually a small room can be cleaned in under an hour. Applying a sealant afterward is recommend and will also affect cost.

How much does it cost to clean tile and grout?

The national average cost for tile and grout cleaning ranges from $190 to $250. Pros may charge a flat fee or by the square foot. Rates can vary depending on the type of tile and grout you have (more delicate tiles may mean specialized products or careful handwashing), how dirty your tile and grout are, and what part of the country you are in (regional labor rates and costs to do business affect costs). For example, one floor cleaning company charges 75 cents per square foot for tile and grout cleaning for projects that permit cleaning by machine. Another company may charge $30-$50 per hour for hand-cleaning of tiles. Companies often charge a minimum fee for services to ensure their business expenses are met when they accept a job, no matter how small. In addition, a tile and flooring cleaning professional may charge added fees, such as $25 or more, to move heavy furniture or appliances.
