How to Clean Grout

How to Clean Grout
Learning how to clean grout is easy if you follow these simple steps.

Dilute your tile and grout cleaner to the strength needed and apply to the tile surface.

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.

Ready?

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.

For more on sealing grout, see our colorsealing grout page with help on putting down a permanent grout sealer that will make future maintanence much easier for you.

How to Clean Grout Once you know how to clean grout and do it from time to time, you will eventually get tired of it and look for an easier way to keep it clean.

Check out the colorsealing grout page and discover what you should have done long ago.

For regular mainenance and daily cleaning of your tile and grout we recommend using a neutral floor cleaner.
