Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

Can you rent a tile and grout cleaner?

Yes, you may be able to find tile and grout cleaner rentals near you. You might be able to rent a cleaner for a few hours, a day, a week or a month. If renting a tile and grout cleaner — and buying the other supplies needed — is too expensive, consider hiring a pro to clean your tile and grout for you.

Wow, the before and after on our home was amazing! Jose was very helpful throughout the process and guaranteed the service he provided would be worth the money and it for sure was. We typically have our tile and grout cleaned every 2-3 years and this is by far the best it has ever looked. American Tile & Grout surpasses all competition in the area!

John and his team provided prompt, high quality services in cleaning, painting and sealing our tile and grout plus sealing our pool deck, all at a fair price. Our white tile and grout appear brand new for the first time since we moved in over 25 years ago! We are incredibly pleased with the results and would recommend Family Marble Care LLC without reservation.

Daniel did an outstanding job on our 12 year old tile. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats which of course puts a lot of wear and tear on our floors. now after the tile and grout cleaning, they look brand new! Thank you, Daniel!

They were very professional and did an excellent job getting my tile cleaned and my grout looking brand new. I would recommend them and also use them in the future if I had any other needs.

We had our whole first floor tile clean and re-sealed. Benidicto's team did an excellent job and I cannot believe these are "old" tiles! It looks like brand new flooring and we couldn't be happier. I had no idea what an impact the grout would have. I now like the floors I used to loathe!

Moshe did a good job cleaning my shower tile. Needed some grout too. Service is 4 stars as final clean up missed a little. Plus I had to clean the shower with vinegar and hot water the next day per his direction. Overall, price seems fair and he showed up per our appointment. I recommend.

Moshe did a wonderful job cleaning my carpet and scrubbing my floor tiles/grout. He was on time, and went out of the box to insure I was happy with the job. I highly recommend him. He was very personable and gave me tips on keeping my floors clean. Price was reasonable and he gives free estimates. Will even do a demo for you!
