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. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a tiler when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a tiler in your area, stay at least 6 feet away from worker(s), don’t shake hands, sanitize all involved surfaces and use digital payment platforms instead of cash or a check. During the consultation, put a plan together to help ensure everyone's safety.

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
Reviews for Sarasota tiling professionals

I have a 3 story home with flat roof. Balconies had beautiful tiles but were causing leaks to lower levels. Bogdan Zabielski came and diagnosed the problem and convinced me that I needed to remove the beautiful tile and he would install new tile at a slope to avoid having rain sitting to solve the leak problem. I trusted him and gave him the job, he completed the work with much more inferior tiles and without sloping the floor. As soon as the rain season started, I had the same issue. Bogdan and his crew installed the new inferior tile without sloping it. All my phone calls and text messages to Bogdan Zabielski have gone in answered. AVOID THIS CONTRACTOR AT ALL COST. HE IS A FRAUD AND THE MINUTE HE GETS HIS MONEY, you never get response. LAW SUIT WILL BE COMING.

Had Lucas install a kitchen backsplash for us. He did a very professional job and took the extra time to make sure everything was done and completed to his high standards. I would recommend Trindade for any of your tile needs. We were highly satisfied with the finish results.

We are extremely impressed with the team that handled our project from TimTech. We had an ugly, dirty looking 10 X 5 bathroom in a home we recently purchased. I spent hours at tile stores trying to find a scheme that would make it look larger and clean. We went with TimTech (out of four companies) because they were TURNKEY. Everyone else wanted us to hire the plumbers and electricians. The tile work is utter perfection! They even suggested the best color to paint for the walls. They were here on time everyday and swept and cleaned after themselves, wow. We hope to hire them to redo the master bathroom, so please don't call them anytime too soon :)

This company is amazing! I’m a realtor and was helping a client of mine find someone to convert her bathroom which was a tub and shower combo into a walk-in shower. She is an elderly woman and has a problem stepping up into a tub. She needed the job done rather quickly. Even though this company had a lot of other jobs with deadlines they still took on this one. Everyone that we had spoken to prior said it would take three or four weeks, possibly more, which would run into the holidays. Cleriston made sure it was completed in a week. It would have been sooner but we were waiting for the plumber and the electrician. My client couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Extreme Tile & Marble Service, they are skilled, timely and understand what the end result should be. Extreme tile and marble will be my recommendation for my future clients. Love their work! I added some photos, it’s almost done but this gives you an idea of how skilled they are. Diana Erland

Joe did an outstanding job cleaning our tile and carpet and sealing our grout. He is courteous and professional, and his attention to detail was superb. You can tell from the first interaction with him that he is a genuinely nice and trustworthy person - someone we wouldn't hesitate to invite back into our home. He takes pride in his work and his equipment was top of the line. His pricing was also great, especially for such a thorough job. We were extremely impressed with him and will definitely be hiring him again! Highly recommend!!

Could not be happier with our new tile and baseboards that Danillo installed in our new home! He did an excellent job and kept us informed every step of the way, there were no surprises from the estimate through completion which was right on schedule so we could move into our new home before Christmas! Words cannot express how thrilled we are at his level of professionalism, communication, guidance and quality of work. He went above and beyond and we will definitely be asking Danillo to work on any project we have in the future. Highly recommend!!!
