Tile Care & Maintenance

Keep your tile, grout, and stone looking great by following some simple precautions.  Natural stone and grout are porous materials, susceptible to staining and water penetration. We recommend that all grout and stone jobs be sealed with the appropriate sealer. Unprotected, grout can be stained by daily use and spills.  Many household foods, beverages, and cosmetics can degrade tile grout and damage stone.  Common toiletries like perfume, hairspray, mouthwash and toothpaste, as well as common foods such as orange juice, and soft drinks contain acids and other ingredients that can degrade sealers or damage your grout or stone.  Coffee, red wine, or grape juice will stain your unsealed grout or stone. Even sealed grout and stone can be damaged if the spill is not cleaned up right away.

There are many companies who have a wide range of cleaning and sealing products on the market.  Although typically a little more expensive than brand name products, companies that have developed products to care specifically for stone, tile, and grout are always recommended. DuPont™ StoneTech®, Miracle, Aqua-Mix, and Tile Lab are the leading companies in cleaning and sealing of natural stone and grout. At Tile Perfection, we believe that StoneTech has the best products to clean and protect your new and existing tile and stone. However, you won’t find StoneTech in supermarkets or at Home Depot. Only select tile retailers and Amazon carry their products.

Our Satisfied Customers

Tile Perfection was recommended to us by a friend. Immediately my husband, Greg, spoke with Scott. There was something about Scott that gives you a comfortable ease that he is not just any other contractor coming to your home to see how much money he could get from you or how long he could drag out the job. No, no.

Scott is all about the business of finding out what the customer wants, making sure he and the customer are on the same page of expectation, creating a good dialog of how much the job would cost, what materials, designs, and expertise are needed, and how long it would take to complete the job. Scott communicates everything in writing in advance before the job begins. To my husband’s amazement, Scott not only completed the job on time, he kept his work area clean and professional. The initial job we had for Tile Perfection was to tile our downstairs floors. We were so pleased with the job that they did, we had them complete our kitchen floors, upstairs floors, our kitchen counter-tops and backsplash, wet bar area counter-tops and backsplash, and 3 bathroom countertops.

We have recommended Tile Perfection to some of our friends. At least one has called us and raved about the work that Tile Perfection did. We will use Scott and his company again in the future and will continue to recommend him to anyone who loves their home and wants an efficient, professional, predictable and reasonably priced tile job done. Very content Customers,
