How To Prevent Stains from Your Tile & Grout

We all know that tile and grout can be difficult to keep clean, especially since grout is so porous! It easily absorbs spills and stains. But alas, there are several things we can do to help out, including relying on the professionals for some professional care. Below you’ll find three great tips for preventing stains on your tile and grout, and you’ll learn how The Steam Team can help, too.

Immediately Tend to Stains

This tip is essential! It’s imperative that you tend to spills immediately upon discovering them. The quicker you clean them up, the easier it will be to prevent a stain from forming on your beautiful tile and grout. So start here, and you’ll be well on your way to properly caring for your flooring!

Develop a Regular Cleaning Routine

It’s also important to develop a regular cleaning routine of sweeping, mopping, and occasionally steam cleaning. Steam cleaning is a great method of cleaning to use on grout! Using nothing but extremely hot water and high water pressure, a professional-grade steam cleaner can easily extract dirt and grime from deep within the pores of grout. It’ll shine up your tile, too! We always recommend steam cleaning when it comes to caring for your flooring.

Use Grout Sealant

Here’s our last tip! It’s always best to install grout sealant when it comes to preventing stains on tile and grout! It serves as a protective barrier between the pores of grout, and spills. It’s essential if you want to keep your tile and grout looking its best!

Make Your Bathroom Sparkle with Steam Team Tile Cleaning

Bathrooms are notorious for building up soap scum, grime, dirt, and other substances we don’t like thinking about, like bacteria. They can be difficult to keep clean, especially if you have a large family- then the shower gets way more use, as does the sink, the toilet, and the floor faces more foot traffic.
