Worcester 2017: Facts and Tips About Tile and Grout Cleaning Tiles are generally easy to clean, durable, and beautiful, but when it comes to grout, it is entirely a different story due to its porous nature making it challenging to maintain along with its location. Through proper cleaning of your grout, you can definitely extend the life of your grout for many years, making it look good and really clean! Maintaining a clean grout does not only benefit your bathroom and kitchen tiles but also your counters and walls. While your tiles can easily resist stains and dirt, your grout absorbs spills and dirt easily because of its porous nature, that’s why it gets stains easily. In the kitchen, the spills are the responsible for a dirty grout because upon entry, grime and dirt stains the grout. On the other hand, the soap, mildew, and mold make your grout dirty in your bathroom. First, to remove the dirt and grime from the grout surface, you can wipe it down with a hot water. Next, spray a DIY mixture of 50-50 mix water and vinegar or commercially prepared cleaning solution on the grout. Spray your DIY or commercially prepared cleaning solution on the grout, and leave it for five to ten minutes, and then later scrub it with a soft brush. It is fine to use an old toothbrush or any small scrub to scrub the grout, or you can also use an electric toothbrush for extra scrubbing power. Never use a metal brush as it can knock out pieces of the grout, and scratch your tiles. It is essential to follow manufacturer’s instructions of commercially prepared grout cleaner or diluted bleach for proper cleaning and application to your floor grout. Do not regularly apply these caustic products as they may erode the grout and thereby causing damage. If you are dealing with stubborn stains, you can mix a paste of baking soda in two parts and one part water. Just apply it on the grout stain, let it stand overnight, and scrub using a nylon brush. Use a less acidic solution if you have a porous or coarse tile such as marble because vinegar stains the tile. You can mix two-parts of baking soda to one-part of peroxide, and scrub it onto the grout using a soft brush. You can also remove stubborn stains by using a sandpaper by folding it and working on the creased edge back and forth along the grout line. Warm water and mild soap are your best buddies in cleaning spills and spots on your tile and grout. Avoid using products that say they add shine to your tiles and surfaces because wax can build over period of time causing a dingy and dark appearance. For routine care for your tiles and grout, always use doormats outside your entrance, wipe down countertops using mild soap and water, sweep your floors in order to loosen dirt, at least once a week, wipe up any spills immediately, and mop floors using a neutral cleaner.
