Worcester 2017: Facts and Tips About Tile and Grout Cleaning While tile is durable, beautiful, and easy to clean, grout is a different story because its location and porous nature make it challenging to maintain. Properly cleaning the grout can definitely extend the life of your tile, making it looking 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, you can blame the spills for a dirty grout because upon entry, grime and dirt stains the grout. Whereas mold, soap and mildew cause 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 the cleaning solution on the grout and let it stand for five to ten minutes, and 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. Never use a metal brush as it can knock out pieces of the grout, and scratch your tiles. 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. Do not regularly apply these caustic products as they may erode the grout and thereby causing damage. You can mix a paste of baking soda in two parts and one part water for cleaning stubborn stains of the grout. After application, let it stand overnight, and then scrub the next day with the use of 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 one-part peroxide to two-parts of baking soda, then 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. As much as possible, avoid using products that add shine to your tiles because wax can build over time causing a dingy and dark appearance. For routine care, sweep your floors in order to loosen dirt, always use doormats outside your entrance, wipe down countertops using mild soap and water, wipe up any spills immediately, and mop floors using a neutral cleaner.
