Elite Tile Care Services


Ceramic tile has been and continues to be a popular choice among homeowners and decorators. With it you can change the entire look of a room or your entire home. Elite cleans more ceramic tile than anyone in the North Bay. With our specialized equipment and cleaning system Elite cannot only get you floor looking like new again but we can dramatically change it's appearance by changing the color of your grout lines, sealing them at the same time against staining forever.


Grout Color Sealing


This is our premium service. Instead of a clear impregnating sealer we can apply a grout color seal. We use a premium grout color sealer that looks very natural. Color seal fixes discoloration, staining or unevenness in grout color. We can completely change grout to the color of your choice. This process seals and colors the grout in one process. It does not affect tile. This is a very durable, easy to clean stain proof seal, and a limited life time warranty is available for the life of your color sealed floor. We also offer all of our clients our Elite Color Sealing Warranty.
