Cleaning Tile Grout is Easy
After making your own grout cleaner or buying your favorite grout cleaner apply the solution to the tile and grout.
You can also use any household cleaners like simple green or pinesol.
Learning how to clean tile grout is easy if you follow these simple steps.
This has always been the hardest part for me, letting the solution dwell for 20-30 minutes.
I always want to start scrubbing right away. Allowing for dwell time makes the scrubbing a little bit easier.
Now for the scrubbing. Using your grout brush, scrub all the grout lines, the best you can being careful not to damage the baseboards with too much water or banging them with the brush.
You can also scrub the tiles with a deck brush making sure to clean any low areas where dirt can be trapped.
Now you can do either of two things; you can use a wet/dry vacumm to suck up the dirty solution, or use a mop to mop it up.
After the dirty solution has been either mopped or sucked up, it's now time to rinse the floor with warm water.
After the floor has been thoroughly rinsed, dry the tile and grout with cotton cloths, until they are completely dry.
You should now have a pretty clean floor, with the exception of any stubborn grout stains, that sometimes can't be removed.
You are now ready to seal the grout lines which we recommend to be done once the floor is completely dry.
