Does your shower area, bathroom, wet room or steam room need a deep clean? Has your grout become contaminated with lime scale and mould? Do you have silicone that has gone black and started to perish? Our bathroom tile cleaning service is for you.
Tiles and grouting in kitchens and bathrooms have to withstand some of the toughest abuse of any surface in the home. Frequent spills and exposure to moisture combined with limited ventilation creates the ideal environment for mould and limescale to thrive. Without regular cleaning this can become almost impossible to deal with and often needs a professional touch to sort out.
Make the most of your time
Many homeowners and tenants work hard to keep their homes clean and tidy. Of course, there’s a balance to be struck between preserving your free time and spending hours on your hands and knees scrubbing at your grouting with an old toothbrush. The truth is that even with the best intentions it can be hard to stay on top of the cleaning. After the floor has been swept or hoovered and the laundry done it’s not always an exciting prospect to go to work on the tiles and grouting too. Sometimes it’s simply better to work with a professional to take care of your tiled bathroom, wet room or kitchen.
Professional tile cleaning advantages
One of the advantages of working with Tile and Stone Medic is that we own some of the best cleaning equipment available. What might take a homeowner several hours with a scrubber can be achieved to a higher standard in far less time with our skills and equipment. Tiles and grouting in particular can be extremely stubborn, especially in settings where they are exposed to changing temperatures as well as moisture, such as shower rooms. Much of the muck and grime that is difficult to remove has effectively been baked on by the heat of the shower and this is where professional gear really makes the difference over supermarket products.
We also understand the specific cleaning requirements of different types of tile, meaning we’re able to match the equipment we use to the surface we’re working on to achieve the highest standard of results. When our cleaning is complete we can then apply a range of sealers to your tiles. The sealers we use are resistant to moisture and mould and will ensure that you can enjoy the results of our cleaning for as long as possible.
Whilst we’re working on your bathroom, wet room, steam room or kitchen we’re also able to use our expertise to repair small areas of damage to both tiles and grouting. Don’t worry if your grout lines have turned black and become horrible to look at, we have equipment that can restore them to a brilliant white, which can make a major difference to the appearance of a room. We even offer a grout recolouring service too, so if you’re interested in a fresh new look for your tiles just let us know, we offer a range of colours to suit any style.

All jobs are different so there are no standard costs, it is all on individual merits for each job. However, once we have spoken to you and asked a few questions, we will be able to give you an estimated cost.
Black mould is not uncommon in areas with a lot of moisture. It doesn’t pose a catastrophic risk, but care should certainly be taken to keep children and animals away from it. It’s nothing to panic about, but we’d recommend getting a professional to take a look as soon as possible. In most cases we are able to neutralise and completely remove black mould, as well as offering practical advice on how to stop it coming back.
In the vast majority of cases this is due to a buildup of soap and other cleaning liquids, usually a result of splashes when showering. In most cases it can be fixed and we are able to help you get the best results possible for your bathroom.
Whilst we’re carrying out your bathroom cleaning it’s important to avoid steam, water and dirt in order to get the best results. That said, we’ll always try to work around you where possible so don’t be afraid to ask our staff if you need access to the room during the clean.
This depends on how serious the stain is and the type of stone used for the floor tiles as well as whether or not is was originally sealed. Cleaning stone is what we do, so we are in the best position to get you the best results.
We apply a sealer to a floor in order to protect it. Different types of floor, both manmade and natural stone, are vulnerable to different sorts of damage. They can all be harmed by chemicals to a certain degree, even by the acid in food and drink spillages, as they will be very slightly porous. As well as this, they can be worn away by physical damage. Even foot traffic can have a big impact if dust or grit has built up on the floor, since it increases abrasions. A sealant will reduce the chance of a spill becoming a stain by reducing the floor’s ability to absorb liquids. It can also help protect the appearance of the floor by forming a protective barrier. A sealant won’t prevent all damage and it will still wear away over time, but it will help your floors last longer, helping protect your investment. Sealants will even help protect your floor from UV radiation which can lead to fading over the lifespan of a high value stone or tiled floor. We can consult with you to find the best sealant for your floor and the type of use it gets to make sure it receives the best form of protection.
We have a range of high quality Faber products which will help protect your floors from damage. As every type of floor is different and has myriad uses, we will consult with you to work out the best way to protect your investment. We can apply topical sealants which form a protective layer on top of the floor, or if needed an impregnating sealant, which will be partially absorbed into the stone or tiles. There are many variations of these sealants and as each floor type has unique characteristics and vulnerabilities we can work with you to find and apply the the best kind of protection.
Firstly, a floor should always be sealed when it is first laid. Get in touch with us straight away if this hasn’t been carried out already. It will also need periodic sealing in order to protect the floor on an ongoing basis. How often sealing is required depends on a number of factors such as the specific material used for your flooring and the kind of use it has to survive. For example, a bathroom with natural tiles that is frequently exposed to water may require sealing more often than porcelain tiles in a kitchen. Frequent maintenance, such as sweeping and hoovering up the dust and grit that erodes floors when trodden on can help. Once the sealant is worn away, not only will scratches be more likely, the risk of staining or permanent damage from liquids is drastically increased as there is no protective layer to prevent absorption. If in doubt get in touch with our team of friendly technicians who can discuss your needs.
The process we carry out will depend on your specific floor and the use that it gets. There will be variations for different materials and the finish that you wish to achieve. The process will also be impacted by the full scale of work that we carry out, for example which types of cleaning and restoration are being performed. It is not unusual to apply several layers of sealant if this is necessary and appropriate.
We always work in the most considerate way possible. Work will be tailored to your needs and will fit around your schedule where possible. We avoid bringing loud or bulky machinery into your home and when a job is complete we thoroughly clean up after ourselves to leave your space looking as tidy as it did when we arrived.
Whilst we may use specialist chemicals in the course of our work, we can assure you that by the time we leave all residues will be gone and your tile or stone flooring will be perfectly safe for everyone to use. We work to extremely high standards of health and safety, conducting proper risk assessments where appropriate and never putting you or anyone else in danger.
