Grout Cleaning: An Unfortunately Necessary Chore
If you’ve ever been faced with cleaning grout, you already know what a painfully dull and frustrating job it can be. The dirt that accumulates between tiles rarely ever comes off with a simple sweep and mop.
Grout cleaning means you have to get down on your hands and knees and scrub until your forearm aches. It’s a terrible job that we recommend you leave to us. However, if you’re determined to do it yourself, we’ve included some information that will hopefully make this awful chore easier.
What is Grout
The dirt or discolouration that forms between tiles is typically not grout itself but rather the result of dirt, mould, mildew, or other substances accumulating on the grout lines. Over time, grout can collect dirt, soap scum, and moisture, which may lead to discolouration and the growth of mould or mildew.
Is there a way to prevent grout dirt from forming in the first place?
Sealing the grout lines after installation can provide a protective barrier, making it more resistant to stains and easier to clean. Proper ventilation in areas with tiles, such as bathrooms and kitchens, can help prevent the growth of mould and mildew.
How do I go about cleaning grout lines?
Regular cleaning and maintenance are necessary to keep the grout lines clean and prevent dirt and mould buildup. Various commercial grout cleaners are available, or you can make a cleaning solution using household items like baking soda and vinegar. Scrubbing the grout lines with a brush or an old toothbrush can help remove dirt and stains.
