Tile and grout are two main areas of a house that are often covered with dust, grime and grease. Soap scum and hard water in the shower areas ruin tile and grout. Flooring also gets dirty with human treading, dirty mop water and food and beverage spills. Acidic cleaners often cause etching on the surface, leaving a nasty mark. Often because of dampness, you might find mold and mildew breeding on tile and grout. All these issues need to be checked and treated if you want to maintain the beauty of your floorings for long. There are many floor cleaners available on Big Box Stores, which claim to clean your surfaces well, but when you actually use them, you find them of poor quality. You need a heavy duty and high-quality floor tile grout cleaner to eliminate these deep-rooted stains and mold from your surfaces.
Tile and grout need to be maintained regularly to keep these nasty stains away from the surface. Here we have mentioned some tips on how to clean and maintain tile and grout.
Tips on Proper Cleaning Tile and Grout:
- Do not use acidic cleaners for cleaning tile and grout. These cause etching and sometimes even permanent damage on the surface.
- In case of food spills or oil spills, it is better to blot the spill with a tissue or a blotting paper, rather than spreading it all over the surface with a cloth while wiping.
- Ensure that you keep your surfaces clean and dry at all times. Moist tile and grout welcome mold and mildew to breed on their surfaces. Mold and mildew not only leave a greenish black stain, ruining the look of your surfaces, but also cause health hazards such as respiratory and eye problems. They also reek of a bad odour.
- Cleaning your tile and grout with a good quality floor tile grout cleaner will eliminate all the germs, stains and mold, giving you sparkling clean surfaces.
- Recolor your grout using color grout sealer, which can be pigmented close to your tile shade and enhance its look.
Tips on Proper Maintaining Tile and Grout:
- In order to maintain your grout, you need to check for cracked or missing grout. If you have empty spaces in your grout, water gets stagnant inside them, offering favorable circumstances for germ breeding. You can repair your missing or cracked grout using a grout filler and then sealing it to ensure that it becomes waterproof.
- In order to maintain your tile, you need to check for cracks and chips. If you have cracks and chips on your tile and ignore them, water will get accumulated inside, leading to germ breeding. You need to seal the crevices using a strong epoxy resin filler.
- Cleaning your surfaces thoroughly does not guarantee that your tile and grout will not get dirty again. You need to seal your tile and grout with a clear solvent topical sealer, which not only creates a hydrophilic layer on your surface, but also makes it waterproof.
- After cleaning and sealing your surfaces, it is best to maintain your tile and grout regularly using a maintenance cleaner to remove the dirt and dust that settles on the top.
