Porcelain tile and especially grout sometimes can be difficult to clean since grout is often more porous than it looks and will absorb dirt and grime very easily. Steam mops offer a lot of benefits for cleaning your porcelain tile and grout without harsh chemicals, and can actually help extend the life of your grout while keeping it looking brighter.
Steam mops use significantly less water than traditional mops, which is especially good for porcelain tile and grout because too much moisture can damage grout, and the moisture left behind from the steam mop is so little so that it dries more quickly.
Chemical cleaners can wear away grout over time, and can damage finishes and sealants on porcelain tiles. With a steam mop, you don't need to use any chemical cleaners on your porcelain tile or grout. The heat and pressure will effectively loosen dirt and grime, and the mop pad will wipe it away.
Protecting Your Tile & Grout
Even though steam mops clean porcelain tile and grout much better than most traditional methods, it is still important to seal your tile and especially grout in order to prolong its life and beauty. Additionally, regular steam cleaning will help keep dirt and grime from accumulating and becoming harder to remove later.
