3 Tips for Keeping Tiles and Grout Clean

Everybody loves a clean and pristine-looking house until it’s time to get on your hands and knees to scrub the grime away from your tiles and grout. Then even a seemingly insignificant chore becomes an Everest to climb.

While tiles can be relatively easier to maintain, cleaning grouts can challenge your nerves. But you don’t need to worry since you’re not alone; we’re here to suggest some tips to keep them squeaky clean!

Invest in Routine Cleaning

It’s better to avoid the buildup of dirt, grease, and other substances on your tiles and grout, as it can get tough to clean them up once the stains become stubborn. It’s essential to have a strict cleaning routine consisting of sweeping and mopping to get rid of dirt effectively.

Here are some things to keep in mind while cleaning your grout and tiles:

  • Use a microfiber cloth for cleaning as it can pick up the smallest dust particles and bacteria.
  • Dry mop or sweep the tiles first instead of directly using water or a wet cloth on them. This will prevent the buildup of residue dirt in the grout when the water evaporates, making the grout appear dirty.
  • Use the gout brusher in a circular motion to clean the grout. (Pro Tip: You can also use an electronic toothbrush as a grout brusher!)
  • Avoid using an acid-based cleaner as it dissolves the grout and stains your tiles.

Use a Steamer

Using a steamer on your tiles and grout has to be the easiest yet most effective method to keep them clean and shining. It’s a chemical-free method and uses very little water, so there is no fear of damage to your tiles or the grout in between them.

Use a steam cleaner on the surface, then take a microfiber cloth to wipe the dirt away, and voila! Your surface is as good as new!

Hire Professional for Upscale Tile Cleaning And Sealing

Despite doing everything in your capacity to make the tiles shine, there is a high chance that the stubborn stains and dirt sitting inside the grout won’t go away. Grout not only becomes discoloured over time, but the filling also tends to come off, which causes the dust particles to accumulate inside.

This requires professional attention; the cleaning service will clean the stubborn stain, treat the discoloured grout and seal the tiles. Sealing helps prevent the dirt from accumulating on tiles and grout and provides a matt or glossy finish to the floor.

The professionals use advanced cleaning agents and equipment like truck-mounted steam cleaning with high pressure, which is a highly effective equipment for shiny tiles. Hence, reach out to a tile and grout cleaning service when you feel like the tiles are dirty beyond your DIY cleaning method’s ability.
