Learn How to Clean Kitchen Floor Grout

Learning how to clean kitchen floor grout is not that difficult, even if you do not have a lot of experience cleaning grout and tile before. This is how I would start:

First of all, you need to sweep the kitchen floor and make sure that all the loose debris is removed before starting. Also, you want to remove kitchen mats, and any loose objects that might be there. The next thing you would need to do is to select a grout cleaner. There are a lot of different products out there. I like to use a general purpose kitchen cleaner or make my own cleaning solution. You can also make a scrubbing paste by using just a little bit of vinegar and water, and add some baking soda to it. This will give you a cleaning solution that is still slightly acidic. The baking soda will help you to be more effective in scrubbing, and the vinegar will help to clean and disinfect the tile. Apply this to the grout directly and scrub it into the ceramic tile with a brush. Then, allow it a few minutes to soak in. The acid in the vinegar should start to eat through some of the grime that may be staining your grout.

After that, you want to find a grout cleaning brush. You can use an old toothbrush if you’re on a budget, but if you can afford it, I would recommend that you get a grout scrubbing brush, because they last longer and are more effective. After a few minutes, come back to the area and scrub it again. When you are confident that you have removed most of the stains from your kitchen floor grout, rinse it off with water and then dry with a towel. You can use many different types of cleaners when you’re learning how to clean kitchen floor grout, but my suggestion is that you use milder cleaners in the kitchen, because you are going to be eating in the kitchen and you wouldn’t want it to have a lot of chemicals.

Use A Steam Cleaner

Another suggestion is to just use a grout steam cleaner. Because a steam cleaner can clean with pure water, it is able to disinfect and penetrate the grout because it is pressurized, and the steam being released has a very hot temperature. Steam cleaners used to be expensive, but today, you can get a good cleaner for less than $100. Using a steam cleaner is the easiest way I know how to clean kitchen grout.
