Tile and Grout Cleaning Tips

Many people love having tiles in their home as they can be beautiful for a long time, easy to clean, and most importantly durable. Grout, the space in between tiles can often call for a different story. The location of grout and its porous nature can often make it a challenge for even the cleanest families to maintain its color and cleanliness. In this following article, we will discuss a few handy tips that can make the task of cleaning your grout much easier.

What to Avoid

When it comes to spots or spells on tile and grout, mild soap and warm water is the best way to go. By doing this cleaning routine in a timely manner, cleaning products can sometimes even be unnecessary. These cleaning products can cause the surfaces of your grout to deteriorate, and water and soap have been proven time and time again to be effective and gentle cleaning agents.

Be sure to avoid products that add shine to your surfaces as these can often contain wax substances that over time can build on the surface of your tile and grout. This buildup can lead to a dingy or dirty appearance on your precious tile. Another way to avoid build-up is by ensuring that you often wipe the surfaces of your tile and grout with warm water and soap.

If you do mop the floors, ensure that you use a neutral surface cleaner and never use more than the recommended amount as this can leave a dark film on the surface of your floor. Remove any loose debris before you begin cleaning and test out the cleaning method on a small area of your kitchen where you wouldn’t mind the damage to be done if the cleaner proves to be too harsh.

How Often?

Make sure to be regular with your cleaning regimen, and if spills and spots occur, be sure to address these in a timely manner.
