Worcester 2017: Facts and Tips About Tile and Grout Cleaning Cleaning tiles is pretty much easier as compared to cleaning grout because of its location and porous nature make it challenging to maintain. 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 tile can resist stains and dirt, grout porous nature absorbs spills and dirt, so it get stains easily. In your kitchen, a dirty grout is basically caused by spills because upon their entry, grime and dirt stains the grout. In your bathroom, soap, mildew, and mold make your grout dirty. By wiping down the grout with a hot water, you can remove the dirt and grime from the grout surface. Next, you can spray a cleaning agent on the grout or you can make a mixture of your own by combining water and vinegar into a spray bottle (50-50). 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. You can also use an old toothbrush or any small scrub for scrubbing the grout, and you can use an electric toothbrush for extra scrubbing power. Do not use a metal brush because it can knock out pieces of the grout, and scratch the tile. Be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions if you are using a commercially prepared grout cleaner or diluted bleach on how to apply it and clean the floor grout. With frequent use, these caustic products can erode the grout, so use it sparingly. For stubborn floor and walls grout stains, mix a paste of baking soda in two parts and one part water. After application, let it stand overnight, and then scrub the next day with the use of a nylon brush. For porous or coarse tiles like marble, use a less acidic solution because vinegar can definitely stain these type of tiles. You can mix one-part peroxide to two-parts of baking soda, then scrub it onto the grout using a soft brush. By using a sandpaper, you also remove grout stains by folding it and work 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. When it comes to regular maintenance or routine care, always use doormats outside your entrance, sweep your floors in order to loosen dirt, at least once a week, wipe up any spills immediately, wipe down countertops using mild soap and water, and mop floors using a neutral cleaner.
