Tile and Grout Cleaning

Share :

Having fresh sparkling tile, and clean gleaming grout is the goal of all homeowners with tiled surfaces. However, many of the products on the market which promise these two results are full of harsh chemicals that can be harmful to small children and pets. Luckily, there are some very effective, all natural ways of cleaning your tile and grout.

 

Natural Alternatives

Most people think that if you have a really tough cleaning job ahead of you, you must use harsh cleaners. This is not always the case. You can often combine green ingredients with plenty of elbow grease and still get a great result. For truly impossible dirt or mold ground into your tile or grout, you may need to consider professional cleaning services in order to get the area up to your standards.
Scouring your tiled areas with baking soda is a great place to start. The abrasiveness of baking soda is usually enough to pull up stubborn stains and its disinfecting powers leave the area feeling and smelling fresh. Adding white vinegar to the plan will add another powerful punch to your tile cleaning project. If mold or mildew has become an issue, try food based hydrogen peroxide to really deal a final fatal blow to mold and mildew.

 

Grout is usually another issue, though. Because grout is porous and the area containing grout is so small and narrow, it can create a difficult cleaning project. An old toothbrush is usually a wonderful tool against the grout grunge. Take a little baking soda paste on an old toothbrush and really scrub between the tiles to get into the grout. If this doesn\’t make a difference in really staining places, try oxygenated bleach power. Make a paste and scrub with circular motions to loosen set in dirt.
You can make future tile and grout cleaning jobs easier when you seal your tile. Tile sealant is not too expensive and can save you a lot of time and headache once the job is done. Sealant keeps dirt and germs from settling into the grout and forms a layer of protection on tile and grout against everyday stains.
If do it yourself tile and grout cleaning sounds like too big of a job for you, call the nice folks at Mundae. Their professional tile and grout cleaning services will have your tiled areas looking wonderful.
