Northern Illinois Tile and Grout Cleaning Service: Chem-Dry of Stratford

Chem-Dry of Stratford is the best Northern Illinois tile and grout cleaning service around.

Clean, Protect and Seal Surfaces

Cleaning out the dirt and grime that has collected on your floors over time can restore a healthy shine to your tile and make it look like it did when it was first installed. But the grout used to install it is a highly porous material that can absorb soil and spills, just like carpet, making them more difficult to clean and making cleaning efforts less effective. After we clean your tile and  stone floors, we apply a sealant to keep out dirt and germs, giving you the opportunity to clean up any spills quickly before they can soak into the grout and stain or linger.

Trained and certified Chem-Dry tile cleaning specialists take their time to complete our thorough stone, tile and grout cleaning process, providing the best possible service and ensuring a safer, healthier home for your family:

  • Before the cleaning process begins, Chem-Dry professionals perform pretests to determine the type of stone or tile to guarantee the safest, highest quality outcome for your home, especially when working with acid-sensitive surfaces such as marble, terrazzo, travertine and limestone.

  • Our certified technicians also provide additional inspection, tape off the area to protect adjacent surfaces, and perform dry soil removal, clearing away surface dust and dirt for better access to build-up and more effective deep-cleaning results.

  • Chem-Dry professionals perform quality checks along the way. If the results are uneven or do not meet expectations, they clean over the uneven area and check their results again, repeating this quality control process until they’ve reached the optimal result.

  • Immediately following your cleaning, Chem-Dry sealers are applied that create a barrier to keep germs out and allow for easy maintenance. Our stone, tile and grout cleaning and sealing services leave your floors purified, protected and ready to use after only a few hours.

  • Additional services such as grout recoloring, stone polishing and granite renewal restore your floor and other surfaces to their original color and luster.

Preparing your home for a Chem-Dry Northern Illinois Tile and Grout Cleaning Service

Step 1: Remove clutter

Shoes, toys, and other small objects can be a tripping hazard and can make it difficult for the Chem-Dry technician to perform the cleaning. If you are having a countertop cleaned, make sure that food, small appliances, and dishes are put away properly, as well.

Step 2: Remove area rugs, mats and other floor coverings

Set any floor coverings aside so that the Chem-Dry technician will have clear access to the entire floor. This will allow them full maneuverability to apply the deep cleaning process to every part bit of stone and grout, providing a healthy shine. Remember, Chem-Dry also offers area and Oriental rug cleanings!

Step 3: Move furniture out of the way

If you have kitchen tables, chairs, barstools, or patio furniture over the area being cleaned, move these out of the way to a safe location. After the cleaning, once the area is dry, you can move furniture back and arrange it as you like.

Step 4: Sweep the area

This does not need to be an in-depth cleaning — after all, that’s why you called Chem-Dry! But quick sweep to remove dust, loose dirt, dropped pieces of food, and other larger pieces of litter from the floor or countertop will simplify the process and lower the likelihood of them getting stuck to the ground once they are wet. With the furniture moved out of the way, you will have a better opportunity to clear out pieces that may have been missed in previous cleanings.

Step 5: Provide clear access

Our Chem-Dry technician will need ready access to transport his equipment to the room where he will be doing the cleaning, so please provide a clear path from the front door for easy access. If you need to move a car to allow them to park as close to the front door as possible, make sure that you do it as soon as possible to prevent any delays.

Step 6: Prepare pets for the visit

A new person visiting can make pets nervous, and if they bring in equipment that may make noises or cleaning products that have new smells, your pet could get either more upset or overly curious. While our cleaning products are safe and your pets are adorable, having a dog or cat underfoot can present a tripping hazard or other complications. Before the technician comes, it is wise to have a plan for where you will keep any pets during the cleaning.
