The tile around your stove may look clean. But we suspect the grout is harboring grease and bacteria. Getting your grout professionally steam cleaned will make your kitchen look fresh and new. Because grout is porous, it easily absorbs grease. That coating captures food particles. And that can grow bacteria. Plus, it won't smell very good. If you've wiped down your counter but wonder why it sill smells a bit off, now you know.
Take your finger and gently scrape over the top of some grout. The grime tends to blend in, and we don't realize it's there when we're washing down the countertop. Usually, you're pushing around the dirt and grease, and it gets rubbed into the grout. Your tile isn't as clean as you think either. Tile may appear to be solid, but the truth is that it's porous as well. Glazes will make the tile water-resistant and stain-resistant. It's a good idea to get it professionally cleaned regularly as well.
