Best Grout Cleaning Methods

Share :
Most people prefer tile as a superb material for flooring, baths and backsplashes. The one downfall to tile is the grout. Grout is a necessary evil when it comes to a tiled area. Over time, the grout becomes grimy, grungy and gross. Because the grout is lower than the rest of the tile surface, it is also hard to clean. Simply wiping over it with a rag and cleaner every day will not get down into the nitty-gritty grime.

There are many do-it-yourself processes that can help you get your grout looking a little better once it has begun to soak up stains. However, nothing compares to professional cleaning. Until you can get your grout professionally cleaned, the tips below can help you get the grout between your tiled surfaces looking much better.
 
Preparation
 
The first step is to clean the area as you normally would, with a rag and general household cleaner. After cleaning, it is important to let the area dry thoroughly. Because grout is porous, it may take a while to get completely dry. Next, you need to dissolve about 2 tablespoons of oxygenated bleach into 2 cups of warm water. 
 
Scrubbing
 
Using an old toothbrush, apply the mixture to the grout and allow it to sink in. Begin to scrub in between the sections of tile, bearing down on the grout. Using circular motions works better than a back and forth motion to loosen stains. Wipe the area clean and then allow to dry. Go over the entire area with a general household cleaner and allow to dry again. Once dry, you will be able to decide if the grout is clean enough or if it needs more scrubbing. Wet grout is darker than dry grout, so you won\’t be able to fully tell until the grout is dry.
 
Sealing
 
To ensure that your grout stays nice, sealing the grout is necessary. Sealing the grout will fill up the porous material so that food debris, germs and dirt cannot settle down into the grout. To ensure a truly fantastic grout cleaning and sealing job, you can contact professional cleaners such those at mundae.com They provide great services for heavy-duty grout cleaning jobs.
