TILE & GROUT

Keep your tile shining bright.

Tile flooring is a great investment, as long as you manage the look of the grout.

Bathrooms and the floors within are the source of more facility complaints than any other place in a commercial building.

The source of these complaints is usually related to the tile and grout being soiled and smelly. Grout is an extremely porous material, and water and general cleaning efforts tend to deposit dirt below the floor line, making it difficult to properly clean and sanitize.

If you manage any building with a bathroom, you know how important it is to keep these areas sanitary, clean, and fresh. It’s easier to keep tile & grout clean if it’s regularly professionally maintained—and if it isn’t, the cost to replace a bathroom floor is 6-7x the cost of maintenance.

Unlike traditional or other proprietary methods that don’t provide any long term warranty, APEX provides a suite of services in order to give our customers options based on budget and performance expectations. Our tile and grout maintenance is quick, thorough, and environmentally friendly, with visually outstanding results.

Surface buildup and discoloration are a fact of life in the bathroom, even with frequent janitorial cleaning. With our help, these issues will never become more than just routine.

Trust our process. Your people will thank you.

More than 80% of consumers said they would avoid returning to a restaurant with dirty bathrooms...

Sadly, a lot of solutions come packaged with issues.
... But not with APEX tile & grout services!

Issue: No warranty.

When you read the fine print, most service companies (or the products they use) don’t offer any warranty past one year. However, that is when most coatings begin to fail. APEX offers a comprehensive three-year warranty.

Issue: Too expensive.

Rather than provide a single solution to what may be a variable issue, APEX provides a suite of services in order to give our customers options based on budget and performance expectations.

Issue: You're stuck.

We can’t remove old coatings so we are stuck with the old system. APEX has been called to remove a wide variety of failed coatings and we can convert older, failure prone systems to a longer lasting, better performing product.

Issue: Too much downtime.

Our tile and grout solutions require no more than one day of downtime in most circumstances.

Issue: Poor lifespan.

Six months to a 1 year later, the floor looks just like it did before you restored the tile/grout. We hear this a lot and can provide training for housekeeping on how to properly clean a tile floor. Our Everclean services extend your warranty for life and helps provide consistently clean sanitary floors.

Don’t let grout discolorations and dirty tile ruin your brand's reputation.

Rest easy knowing your floors are taken care of.

Be the hero you are—without heroic levels of stress.
