Brick Floors: Rustic Charm
Traditionally used in exterior walls and walkways, brick is increasingly popular for interior flooring in laundry rooms, mudrooms, kitchens, foyers – anywhere you’re going for a rustic touch. The challenge is to maintain brick to keep it looking not only rugged, but also inviting.
Why Brick Needs Maintenance
If you’re looking for a highly durable flooring material, brick is tough to beat. But durable as it is, the properties of the shale or clay it’s made of make it challenging to keep clean. Without the proper care, brick and grout are both magnets for:
Grease. Brick and especially grout can stain from exposure to grease and grime.
Dirt. If left unsealed, the porous surface of brick easily accumulates dirt and dust.
Wear. Foot traffic wears down sealant over time, making brick more likely to stain and absorb water.
Without regular cleaning and resealing, brick floors wind up going beyond rugged to looking run-down and too dirty for everyday household cleaning to address.

Other Brick Floor Services
For deeply stained grout, we use a safe but powerful cleaning solution and gently abrasive brushes to completely scrub out the discoloration, bringing out the grout’s original color.
Cracks and gaps can develop in the grout over time, especially with heavy foot traffic. We use a strong epoxy to rebuild the grout, making it look great again and preventing water intrusion.
In exterior pathways and some interior floors, bricks can separate and become uneven in time. We can reset them, even out the surface and regrout to make your brick surfaces look like new.
