The Secret to Tile & Grout Cleaning

The Secret to Tile & Grout CleaningKeeping your home’s tile & grout as clean as the day that you had it installed is not an easy task. While sweeping, mopping, and polishing your floors regularly can help keep them clean, these repetitive actions also deteriorate your tile floors and the grout in it. How can you keep tile & grout looking clean and pristine?

The secret to keeping your tiles and the grout in-between them looking their best rests in how you clean them and what you do to maintain them. While a routine of mopping, sweeping and polishing is not a bad idea, using the wrong tools when you do this can actually damage your floors. To help you properly maintain your tile floors, here are some tips that can come in handy:

  • Protect your grout with a sealer – Grout is a porous material that absorbs water and any other liquids that can cause stains. This is why it is important to protect your grout protected with a sealer after installation. Sealers come in two forms, topical and penetrating. The topical option allows you to put a protective coat on top of your grout to prevent the absorption of liquids and dirt. The penetrating option lets you remove the porous quality of your grout by filling its pores.
  • Have your grout and tiles cleaned professionally – When your tiles and grout are looking dingy and faded, you can restore the luster with professional tile cleaning. Having tile and grout professionally cleaned a couple of times a year will keep it looking its best.
  • Clean your tiles and grout with vinegar, baking soda, and clean rags – If you want to maintain the look of your tiles after professional cleaning, you can always do so with the help of some basic tools and kitchen items. White vinegar, baking soda, and clean rags can help remove any surface stains and dirt on your tiles. Do this once a week in between professional cleanings to get these to remain as clean as possible.
  • Remove mold spots with professional help – If the grout in between your tiles has black spots in it, you might have molds growing in it. Because grout is porous and can absorb moisture, it is possible for molds to grow in it. When this happens, contact a professional for help in removing the molds in it.
