Tile & Grout Cleaning
Of all the cleaning jobs to be done around the home, tile and grout are arguably two of the most difficult because they can become dingy fairly quickly. Over the years, there have been many products developed to clean tile and grout so that they maintain a like-new appearance. Unfortunately, many of these products either use harsh chemicals that leave behind an unwanted residue or are simply not all that effective.
Why Tile & Grout can be Difficult to Clean
The truth is that tile and grout are actually not all that hard to clean, they can be difficult to maintain. This is because tile and grout are most often found in the kitchen and bathroom where they are exposed to plenty of dirt and moisture which can create real issues about keeping them looking new.
While there are many reasons why your tile and grout can become dingy, the main culprit is usually the moisture that is present in bathrooms and kitchens which allows the dirt and other particles to bind into the grout. Furthermore, a sheen of dirt and film can start to cover the tile creating a more dingy appearance over the years.
The proper cleaning and care of tile starts with how it is maintained so that you can keep it looking in as like-new condition as possible. Be sure to air out your kitchen and bathroom after each use and do shorter, but more frequent cleanings during the week rather than allowing the dirt and film to build up over time. In other words, a few minutes every other day of quick cleaning may save you a considerable amount of time compared to waiting until the end of the week or longer.
Another way to help clean up the grout areas is by using proper, all-natural products such as baking soda and vinegar which can help root out the buildup of dirt. The key is not so much to scrub, but to instead apply natural products to the floor first and then let them sit for a pre-designated period of time before using your mop. In this manner, you can get up more dirt and debris from the grout and tile which will in turn make them cleaner and brighter.
