Dirty Tiles

Canny Case Studies Tiles and Grout Featured Image

Tile surfaces become scratched and dulled from daily abrasion creating micro hiding places for dirt, oils, and bacteria. The condition worsens in a short amount of time and creates an unacceptable floor or wall that cannot be cleaned by usual methods.

Modern ceramic tile flooring creates further problems. The tile surfaces have more texture than ever before making mopping less effective. Also, more noticeable and problematic, the grout between the tiles has even more texture to trap dirt residue left by mopping.

Unhygienic Grout

Canny Case Studies Tiles and Grout Before and After

The problem is that lime based grout easily absorbs moisture, oils and sugars that in turn attract bacteria, dirt and other solids that change the overall appearance by darkening the grout. Other porous surfaces like brick, Italian quarry- tile, limestone and another engineered flooring all acts like concrete or grout, absorbing liquids, oils and dirt to a point that their appearance also darkens with time.

Chemicals can dilute the grime well enough, but without effective removal the formed slurry only soaks deeper into the grout. Rotary scrubbers fail to reach into the grout lines or the texture of the tiles. Tile and grout is often associated with food halls, restaurants, rest rooms and leisure areas. Dirty tile and grout is not aesthetically pleasing. More importantly it is unhygienic.
