We love the way tile (and grout) looks in our home, but sometimes it can be a pain to care for! Grout is porous, meaning, it easily absorbs spills and accidents that cause stains and discoloration- not to mention grime. So what’s the easiest method to cleaning tile and grout? Well, below we’ll talk about several methods of cleaning grout, and we’ll save the best for last!
It’s always best to install grout sealant! Grout sealer serves as a barrier between grout and liquid, preventing stains and discoloration. It’s a must for your tile and grout. It’s its best protection!
Sweeping and/or Mopping
Sweeping and mopping the floor on the regular is necessary to keeping tile and grout clean. It’s step one on chore day (when it comes to flooring, that is)! You wouldn’t believe the amount of dust, dirt, and pet hair that gets caught up in the corners of our kitchen, hallways, pretty much everywhere!
Scrubbing grout is a pretty effective method of cleaning, but it requires a lot of energy and elbow grease. Chlorine bleach works best, but make sure you’re wearing safety glasses as it tends to splash. Also, avoid using abrasive materials when you’re scrubbing tile; you wouldn’t want to permanently scratch it!
