Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation with a tiler during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by conducting an online search for tilers in your area. Ask if the tiler can conduct a consultation through a video call instead of a traditional site visit to limit exposure. It’s also wise to confer about the current state of the pandemic and ensure that it’s safe to complete the project now. If not, discuss postponing for another time. 

How can I find out if a tiler is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To identify essential service providers during the pandemic, visit your city or state’s government website to find a list of recommendations.

A list of national recommendations can be found at CISA’s Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 webpage. This service lists 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that are approved to continue operation during the pandemic. But note not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Does a tiler need to enter my home?

If the tiling job is located in your house, the tiler will need access to your home. The exception to this would be if the job was taking place in an outdoor area like a backyard.

If a tiler does need to enter your home, take strong precautions. Sanitize all surfaces, avoid being in the same room and conduct payment using digital platforms. Discuss a safety strategy with tilers in your area beforehand.

Can I use digital payments to pay for tile installation, replacement or repairs?

Digital payment platforms are popular in a wide range of service industries, and many tile installment, replacement and repair professionals now accept them. Common platforms include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. 

Start with an online search for tile companies near you. Ask them if they accept digital payments and which types you can use. Then, put a strategy together to follow social distancing guidelines.

Do tilers offer remote or virtual services?

Because tiling is a manual, in-person job, it is not typically considered a remote project. But if you come across a profile that states the tile company is offering remote services, ask them what those services include.

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.

Which is better: porcelain or ceramic tile?

Porcelain tiles are more durable and have a longer lifespan than ceramic tile. If you're installing flooring in an area with high traffic or lots of heavy furniture, porcelain tiles will look better for longer. They’re also very easy to clean and maintain. Porcelain is also very water-resistant and can hold up in places like bathrooms and rooms with jacuzzis, hot tubs, or swimming pools. 

But if the cost is your top priority, ceramic tiles are often more affordable. Ceramic tile prices start as low as $0.45 or $0.50 per square foot, and porcelain tile starts at $3 per square foot.

Does tile flooring increase home value?

Having a tile floor may increase your home’s value, but it might depend on the type of tile you install and the trends in the real estate market.

Chat with your realtor or a real estate expert to figure out what types of home repairs and remodeling projects you should tackle before you put your home on the market. It might make sense to add new tiles when renovating your kitchen or bathroom, for example. 

If you decide to include new tiling in your home remodeling project, contact the best tile installation pros near you to get free estimates.

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

Prakash B.
I was so impressed by this company. I had a very bad experience when my tile was placed by the tile installers - and they offered multiple solutions, were very helpful and went above and beyond trying to get the problem solved. They do much more than just tile cleaning and sealing - I will be using them for any future projects!! Very pleased !

Greg knows his stuff and he takes pride is his company and the services provided. He matched the tile and design pattern perfectly, and the finished product flows as a continuous extension of the inside living area. His installer, Phil was professional, dedicated and meticulous. The installation of my lanai tile project was of the highest quality in every respect. I highly recommend Manatee Flooring. They’re awesome!

I found out when moving out of a big apartment complex that I was required to have professional tile/grout/carpet cleaning. I looked everywhere and the ONLY reasonable price I found was Floor Medic. It gets even better than the price, however. They truly did WONDERS on what I thought was "already clean" tile and carpet. Just WOW! Professional, punctual and reasonably priced. I definitely recommend this company to anyone and everyone.

I can’t recommend this company enough. The pricing was a fair amount. The workmanship was out of this world. Don’t bother searching around for a tile contractor. This is the company believe me. Quality, Quality, Quality.

The service was delivered exactly as described. Our tile, grout and carpeting was all cleaned and the grout was sealed. All the flooring in our home now looks clean and we are delighted. And at a very reasonable rate.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Agron's work! Finding someone who is reliable, professional and truly cares about the quality of their work is not easy to do. Agron checks all the boxes. He was a delight to work with and he did an impeccable job updating the tile in two bathrooms, one above a tub and one was a standing shower. His work is top notch, and his prices don't break the bank. Seriously, don't hesitate to hire him. I'm his newest #1 fan and will be calling him again in the future for more tile projects. He's a true craftsman.

Such a pain free experience! I work from home and I am constantly on back to back calls. These guys made it easy for me to just unlock the door and let them go to work on my kitchen backsplash. I LOVE the tile work. They had great recommendations on the grout choice (coffee bean) and even recommended other enhancements. Finally excited to use my kitchen and entertain.

So the work that he did was great...he was hired to fix a dozen issues and he did them all. Only wished I had hired him from the beginning. All the porcelain tile work he did came out better than expected His job was done and the cleanup was great also. He has a great ability to figure out solutions to many problems. He also asks if you want some a special way or look it is up to you. I will definitely use him again and feel comfortable recommending him to someone.

Recently, I contacted Forza Contractors regarding installing back splash stone kitchen tile for my home. Carlos immediately responded and gave me an estimate. Within days of his visit I purchased the needed material and the job was professionally done. The installers were very knowledgeable and articulate with their work besides being very pleasant. The whole experience was awesome. The job was done to my satisfaction and they left my home the way it was when they arrived, CLEAN. I would highly recommend this contractor if you need any work done. I give them a five star rating on this project!

I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Capote Flooring. 100% the best value! We were on a budget but the team at Capote Flooring treated our shower retile like it was a top dollar project. They took their time, paid attention to detail, and listened to every request I had. Anytime I had a question Desiree answered right away and let me know what I needed to do. The gentlemen who did the work were talented and respectful. I had my 3 young children home all week and they were not distracted or upset by it at all. I will absolutely use them again for any of my flooring or tiling needs. Thank you so much for a great job.
