Can Ft. Pierce Water Cleanup Save Floor Tiles and Grout?

SERVPRO Technicians’ Water Cleanup Restores Damaged Bathroom and Kitchen Tile

Ceramic tiles are well-known for their reliability and durability, especially in the face of much-needed water cleanup after a disaster. However, extensive water exposure from a plumbing leak, overflow, or appliance failure can create microbial growth in tile grout and impact the structural integrity of floor tiles and other structural materials in a Ft. Pierce home.

SERVPRO performs water cleanup for Ft. Pierce homes that include tile floor restoration and repairs. SERVPRO’s restoration-focused approach minimizes replacement costs for homeowners while returning residences to a clean, pre-disaster condition.

SERVPRO Water Cleanup for Floor Tiles and Grout

In many water damage scenarios, ceramic tiles are rarely impacted by moisture. However, tile grout is porous and prone to water damage, creating moisture that dislodges and damages tiles. Other types of tile, like laminate, may be more cost-effective to replace after moisture and microbes impact tile adhesive and backing.

  • SERVPRO professionals can spot-clean tiles stained by water damage with EPA-registered biocides
  • Technicians measure moisture levels in tile grout and subflooring with penetrating and non-penetrating sensors and meters to ensure that drying goals are met
  • Techs can implement replacement tiles where necessary, as well as replace drywall, baseboards, and other structural materials affected by water
