In need of grout cleaning tips or tile and grout cleaning methods that work?

Cleaning grout has always been a pain to do, and some people put it off until their grout is so dirty, it looks like they have black grout lines.

In our experiences cleaning floor grout we have seen some pretty bad grout lines, but with a littly hard work and our grout cleaning tips, you can get your grout looking clean and healthy again.

Our tile and grout cleaning methods will help you get your grout lines looking clean again and make you feel good about them.

Grout Cleaning Tips

We know that looking at dirty grout lines day after day, can make your whole floor seem dirty, and that mopping them only seems to make them worse.

When it comes to cleaning floor grout, there is no way around having to scrub them. It takes good ol' elbow grease to get them looking clean again...and a great grout cleaning brush!

The first thing you're going to need to do is find a tile and grout cleaner that will help with the task at hand, and that's cleaning dirt and probably grease.

You want an akaline cleaner. An akaline solution will do just that, cut grease and dirt. Some grout cleaners are acidic solutions and can be good grout cleaners, but it's best to start with an akaline cleaner first.

There are many tile and grout cleaners you can buy at the big box stores or you can buy one that we use in our service business. Check out this link for the best natural stone and tile and grout cleaner.

Stone Tile Grout Cleaner

Once you have your grout cleaner, apply the solution to the tile and grout liberally.

Allow the solution to dwell from 15-30 minutes.
Grout Cleaning Tips

If it's a large area to be cleaned, clean a small area, say 100 ft2 at a time, so not to overwelm yourself.

After allowing the grout cleaner to dwell and emulsify the dirt and other contaminants, begin the scrubbing process.

Use a deck brush to clean the tiles and a grout cleaning brush to scrub the grout lines.

While scrubbing the tile and grout, keep them wet and be sure to take frequent rests and hydrate yourself by drinking lots of water, because it can be hard work.

After you've finished scrubbing, mop up the dirty solution and rinse with warm water. Dry the floor as best as you can with dry cotton or microfiber cloths.

Grout Cleaning Tips

You now know how to clean grout. If the tile and grout is still dirty, you may need to repeat the process or change your grout cleaner.

Now that the tile and grout is sealed, it should be sealed with either a grout sealer or colorsealer. Keeping your grout sealed with help keep out unwanted stains absorbing into the grout.

This is the tile and grout cleaning method we use everyday, but on a bigger scale, and works for us very well. We know that that cleaning floor grout is time consuming and messy, and sometimes frustrating.
