Why is It Important to Know How to Properly Clean Tile Grout?

how to clean tile groutIf you’re going to spend your own time cleaning tile and grout, it is a very good idea to know how to clean grout properly. If you do not clean your grout properly, you may still be able to clean it, but it will take you longer. In addition, can do it within the same time, but not do nearly as good of a job that you could do if you knew how to clean. Well, it is possible to use a grout cleaner and a scrub brush to clean grout with, but it is far simpler and easier to do it with a pressure washer or a steam cleaner. For outdoor tile and grout, I recommend using a pressure washer. It will be a lot faster than trying to scrub with a brush and rinse with water. For indoor tile and grout cleaning, you’ll have much more success when you use a grout steam cleaner or a vapor steam cleaner to clean your tile and grout with.

What Are the Best Types of Cleaners That You Could Use for Grout?        

The type of grout cleaner that you use will depend on how much dirt is on your grout. There are several types of grout cleaner found in your own house. There are mild cleaners and there are also harsh or chemical based cleaners. What I can recommend for you to use as a grout cleaner is one that is not chemical based. It is also environment friendly. These are vinegar, baking soda and lemon. These are good in cleaning dirt and removing bacteria and mold in your grout. You can mix any of them with water and use it to brush your tile in a circular motion. Baking Soda is good in removing stains. So if you see that there are stains in your tile, then you might consider using baking soda on it. Vinegar also serves as a disinfectant. It is also considered as a very mild cleaner, thus protecting your tiles from damage.

A Few Useful Tips to Help You Clean Your Grout and Tile

If there are sticky things on the tile, make sure to mop it up as well. The next step is for you to spray down a grout cleaner like Kaboom, and allow it a few minutes to soak into your tile grout. After at least 5 minutes, take out a brush and start scrubbing the grout between the tiles. You’ll be surprised how quickly and easily you can remove most of the grout stain. I actually tried doing this over Thanksgiving at my mom’s house, and it surprised me how quickly and easily the grout stain came out of my mom’s kitchen floor. Having the right grout cleaning tools is essential to getting the job done faster. Another tool that I recommend for cleaning floors is a grout steam cleaner. I think that it does a great job and it doesn’t need you to do nearly as much scrubbing. I recommend it because it cleans and disinfect very well without even using chemicals.
