There are many homeowners that also choose to break up the look of marble or granite with unique mosaics in custom color patterns that can be included in shower spaces. These mosaic patterns can come ready to install or custom-designed with the help of a contractor.

Think about Value Over Price.

Selecting remodeling a home's bathroom can be a very interesting task. From choosing new fixtures to new flooring to brand-new cabinetry, a bathroom remodel can transform a house owner's desires right into truth. Still, when considering such a job, the right contractor has to be in location to get the job done to expert criteria. When considering who to employ to complete this home improvement task, it is essential to make sure in choosing the right contractor from the start. While making this choice could appear daunting at first, this does not have to be the case. Right here are some helpful tips on how to choose a bathroom remodeling contractor for the most effective job.


Finding the Right Contractor

Judging that is the best individual to execute the job will take some effort but there are a couple of suggestions homeowners can comply with when it concerns achieving the best end results on their bathroom renovation task. To make sure the right contractor is chosen take into consideration the following:


Working with a knowledgeable contractor is important. Take into consideration for how long they have are in business or even a lot more specifically, the number of years of direct bathroom remodeling experience they have.

 

Contractor Should Be Completely Licensed & Insured. The contractor should also be fully insured and accredited. Each state has different demands pertaining to the legal documents needed to perform work as a contractor in that state. Follow-up and demand evidence of licensure and insurance coverage to validate the contractor can legitimately perform the work they are appealing. General liability insurance is necessary because if something were to go wrong throughout the course of the task, the appropriate protections will be in area.


Better Business Bureau (BBB) Grade. In addition, talk to the Better Business Bureau to review the contractor's grade. It is not a demand for business to sign up with the BBB however this service is necessary due to the fact that any type of customer can report an issue against business they have actually had disputes with. Take a close consider both the contractor's grade and the variety of disagreements they have detailed to determine if this contractor is the right supplier to manage the renovation project.

 

A trustworthy contractor will also have lots of recent recommendations. When getting in touch with a contractor for the first time pay very close attention to their willingness to give references. Are they available to do so or are they reluctant? Ask the contractor for at least 3-5 references and call them straight to gather their personal point of views pertaining to the contractor.


Before & After Work Pictures. Another great method to determine a contractor's level of expertise is to request before and after images or videos of their work. The contractor should have a profile of job that displays their best projects both prior to and after the renovation. Furthermore, when looking for the ideal contractor do not hesitate to request visits to real work websites (ones that are in development or ones that have recently been completed) to see their work first hand.

 

Think about Value Over Price. Price should not be the single reason that a contractor is picked. Picking a lower valued contractor that does not have the necessary experience or credentials might turn a remodeling project's budget upside down. Many homeowners have actually had renovation problems after they picked a cheaper contractor that completed substandard job. They then had to hire a more expensive contractor ahead and fix the problems. This scenario can be prevented by choosing a contractor based on the value and quality of their work rather than their price.

How to Steam Clean Ceramic Tile

Posted by seashoretile on January 1, 2017 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (3)

The power of steam to clean your ceramic tile.

 

Using a steam cleaner to clean ceramic tile on the floor and the walls can remove that sticky residue often left behind when using traditional floor cleaners. The high-pressure steam both cleans and disinfects the ceramic tile surfaces without the use of harsh chemicals that can sometimes damage ceramic tile or grout. Using a steam cleaner protects your skin from those same harsh chemicals. Steam cleaners can heat the water up to 220-degrees Fahrenheit to blast dirt out of small cracks and crevices that a regular mop would leave behind.

 

Sweep your ceramic tile floor with a broom or dust mop to pick up larger items of debris that the steam cleaner might not catch. Wipe down ceramic tile walls with a dust rag to remove cobwebs that sometimes gather in the corners.

 

Remove the fill cap and fill the water tank on your steam cleaner with distilled water. Depending on the type of steam cleaner you own, the tank attaches to the handle or is a separate container. Do not add any cleaning products to your water tank. Replace the fill cap.

 

Attach the microfiber cloth provided with your steam cleaner to the steam cleaner head. Some steam cleaner cloths attach to the cleaner head with hook and latch strips while others use elastic.

 

Plug your steam cleaner into the wall outlet. Turn on your unit if your unit has a separate on off switch. Some units turn on automatically when you plug the cord into the wall outlet. Some models of steam cleaners are ready for use within 30 seconds, while others require several minutes to heat the water in the tank.

 

Pump the handle or squeezed the trigger on your steam cleaner to release the steam through the microfiber cloth. Move your steam cleaner's head back and forth over your ceramic tile the same way you would when mopping your floor with water.

 

Unplug your steam cleaner from the wall outlet to change the microfiber cloth or to change an attachment to clean ceramic tile on the wall. Plug the steam cleaner back into the wall outlet to heat the water.

 

Clean ceramic tile on walls or countertops by moving the microfiber cloth or attachment back and forth across the tile. When steam cleaning shower wall tile, wipe the tile down with a terry cloth towel immediately after cleaning to remove the loosened soap scum and hard water deposits.

 

Unplug the steam cleaner from the wall outlet. Remove the microfiber cloth from your steam cleaner. Allow your ceramic tile to dry. Since you are using steam instead of water, drying times are much shorter than mopping or cleaning with soap and water.

 

Things You Will Need

Broom or dust mop

Dust rag

Distilled water

Terrycloth towel

Warnings

Do not get your hands or bare feet near the head of the steam cleaner while it is operating to avoid burns.

Floors can be slippery immediately after cleaning.

Clean grout in bathrooms

Clean grout in bathrooms

When grout is dirty and grimy (grubby hands, mildew and product buildup are usually the culprits), it can make an entire bathroom or kitchen look dingy. When it's clean, this typically white mortar between your tiles can significantly brighten up the room. Whether on the floor, in the shower, or on the kitchen backsplash, grout can be cleaned effectively and naturally with just a few simple tools.

 

Clean clothOld toothbrush: if you have an old electric one to spare, all the better!Baking Soda

 

1. Wash the area with water using your washcloth. This gets rid of any easy-to-remove particles and allows you to start with a relatively clean slate.

 

2. Combine baking soda and water to make a paste.

 

3. Using the toothbrush, apply the paste to the grout, scrubbing vigorously. This is where the electric toothbrush comes in handy if you have one -- the vibrations help loosen dirt more vigorously than your own man power can.

 

4. Wipe off any excess paste. You also make want to wipe the tiles down again with a wet washcloth. This solution requires a lot of elbow grease, so be prepared to scrub. Some recipes suggest replacing the water with vinegar for a deeper clean. For really tough stains, let the paste sit a while before scrubbing it. If the grout still isn't coming clean, apply lemon juice directly to the stain, let it sit a few minutes and wipe it clean.

 

If the stains are too stubborn there are more grout cleaning solutions available. These remedies aren't quite as natural, but each one pulls from items you already have around the house.More options:- Scrub the grout with toothpaste. Choose whitening toothpaste for a little extra polish. Again, here's your excuse to get a new electric toothbrush because this job would be much easier with your old one!

 

- Mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda into a paste. When the bubbling stops, apply it to the grout. Let it sit for a while then scrub it off with an old toothbrush.

 

Once the tile is clean, it's time for a little preventative maintenance. Inspect your grout regularly and apply a commercial grout sealer once a year. Keeping it well sealed makes sure it doesn't become home to mould or mildew. Keep the grout dry when you can and take care of small stains as soon as you notice them.

 

Bring your tile back to life; you'll be amazed at how new it can look with some of these basic solutions.

 

If all else fails, you can always remove the old, stained grout and re-apply new grout
