Or when you drop a spoon, does it sound like it’s landing on an empty container? Is your grout cracking? If so, then some of your tiles may be in the process of separating from the underlayment. Perhaps the tiles are still partially attached at the corners or somewhere in the middle, but it’s just a matter of time before a hollow tile begins to crack.
Depending on what’s happening underneath the flooring, these kinds of problems may be caused by, among other things, structure settlement or weak underlayment. With structure settlement, resolving floor problems may be a complicated and expensive ordeal. But, if weak underlayment is the diagnosis, there are two relatively simple and inexpensive possible remedies that can be used.
The first is to have tile glue injected underneath the tiles. This serves two purposes. The glue will fill the hollow gaps while at the same time strengthening the bond.
The second possible solution is to replace the grout with a flexible grout. The advantage of flexible grout is that if there is any movement in the floor, the grout flexibility dissipates stress that would otherwise put pressure on the tile and cause cracking.
We can accurately diagnose and resolve problems with your tile and grout installation. If you suspect your flooring is separating from the underlayment, don’t assume your floor must be replaced. Instead, give us a call to discuss your options. You could save thousands of dollars. And don’t delay, because your tiles may crack, increasing the complexity (and price) for repairs.
Deep Extraction Cleaning
Grout cleaning is performed to remove surface discoloration caused by dirt and grime. Our tile grout cleaner is suitable for cleaning either sanded or non-sanded grout.
Deep extraction tile cleaning utilizes heated water under pressure to physically separate the dirt from the tile and grout surface. Deep extraction tile cleaning will have limited impact on stains. This is the most cost effective grout treatment. If your floor has been regularly sealed this may be all you need to restore your clean tile grout appearance.
Unfortunately, most people forget to re-seal their stone and grout. Unsealed grout can be stained with dirty mop water resulting in spotty stains and grayed out grout. While the industry standard, if your floor sees normal use and has not been sealed, this process will remove the surface dirt, but uncover hidden stains.
CENTURY STONE’S Deep extraction cleaning is the fastest way to a grime free floor. Enter your zip code and find the closest CENTURY STONE office and get your free estimate. CENTURY STONE is your first step towards a cleaner tile.

Grout Stripping & Replacing
Grout Stripping or Replacing – Suitable for removing shallow stains on non-sanded grout. This approach strips the top layer of stained grout to allow the natural grout color beneath to show through.
Once completed the grout should be sealed to retard future staining. Suitable for stain removal from badly stained grout. This is a labor intensive approach as each grout line affected must be hand stripped.
Areas of stained grout can be cut out and re-installed. However, this can result in areas of light, new, dark and old grout. In some heavily stained, un-sanded grout cases, this is the best approach.
The net result is your non-sanded grout looks clean and bright once again. Call CENTURY STONE, the company with more experience, offices and solutions than anyone in the stone, tile & grout service market. Free estimates, always, and excellent results are a call away.

This service involves an application of our specially formulated, neutral pH maintenance tile and grout cleaning product, which is agitated into the tile and grout manually and then removed, along with dirt and grime, using a low pressure steam treatment and extraction.
