Stone, Tile, & Grout Cleaning
We Clean For Your Health
One of the nicest touches to the basic architectural components of a home is ceramic or stone tile in kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and even outdoors. It’s hard to go wrong with tile. It’s durable, long-wearing, and looks great. A stone tile floor in the entryway immediately adds an air of class in a home, and there’s nothing quite like a stone patio in the backyard to host a barbecue for family and friends.
Unfortunately, tile, stone, and grout are not immune to the unhealthy elements that are in and around your home. Over time, dirt and grime build up in the porous surfaces of your stone, tile, and grout flooring. While regular sweeping and mopping with regular household cleaners are helpful at keeping excessive build-up at bay, it doesn’t deliver the deep tile and grout cleaning that your floors really need.
Some people try to take matters into their own hands and scrub between the tiles with a toothbrush to get at that gunky build-up that mops and brooms can’t reach. Unfortunately, that’s a lot easier said than done. It is a back-breaking method of grout cleaning that, after all the work, yields mixed results at best. After potentially hours of scrubbing, you often have nothing substantial to show for it besides several aching joints and a filthy toothbrush. So what’s going to save your back and deliver a deep, safe, healthy cleaning?

Clean, Protect, and Seal Surfaces
A professional tile and grout cleaning will remove 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 grime, giving you the opportunity to clean up any spills quickly before they can soak into the grout to stain and linger.
Trained and certified Chem-Dry professional tile cleaners take their time to complete our thorough stone, tile, and grout cleaning process. Chem-Dry provides the best possible service with the safest and most effective cleaner to ensure a safer, healthier home for your family:
- Before the on-site cleaning process begins, Chem-Dry professionals perform pretests to determine the type of stone, tile, or grout 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 professional tile cleaners 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 grime 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 floor cleaning services such as grout recoloring, stone polishing and granite renewal restore your floor and other surfaces to their original color and luster.
Don’t just take our word for it
We had wall to wall carpet the was filthy and stained (dogs, kids). Now it looks like new thanks to Chem Dry. We also had the same amazing result with the 2 area rugs that we had cleaned. They were wool oriental carpets and looked beautiful after cleaning. The best part..it was all dry the same day! And all the stinky odor gone! Recommend Chem Dry and I would use it again.
Gene was on time and he had a lot of good information to share. He did a thorough job cleaning our carpets and was able to remove all of the stains. Gene is friendly and fun to talk to. We were able to take advantage of a seasonal discount which saved us some money. I also liked the fact that the carpet dried really quickly. All-in all, we are very happy with the carpet cleaning.
We’ve been a repeat customer of ChemDry seattle for multiple years now – they are extremely responsive, professional and knowledgeable, our carpets are always left sparkling after our service and it makes our house feel so much cleaner. Gene is incredibly friendly, thorough and efficient in his work. We will continue coming back for our cleaning needs!

Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I have my tile, stone and grout cleaned?
Just like carpet, dirt builds up over time that dulls your tile or stone’s appearance and discolors your grout. A thorough, professional tile, stone & grout cleaning is the only way to remove the deep-down dirt, make this area of your home look nicer and ensure that all areas of your home are clean and healthy. Scrubbing tile & grout on your hands and knees isn’t a fun job – with our professional equipment we can save your back-ache and make your tile surfaces look better than ever.
How often should I clean my tile, stone and/or grout?
Many factors need to be considered when determining the frequency of cleaning. Foot traffic, children, pets, and routine floor maintenance will affect how often you need to have your tile, stone & grout cleaned. If stains and discoloration are present then your tile and grout is ready for a cleaning.
Why should I have my grout lines sealed?
Grout is a porous material that absorbs soil and spills, just like carpet. Having a sealant applied will help create a protective barrier, giving you more time to clean up dirt and liquid spills before they soak into the grout. The type of sealant you choose will determine the degree of stain resistance that the grout will hold.
