Tile And Floor Maintenance With A Grout Cleaning Machine

Published by:

One of the secrets to keep your bath space and kitchen neat and spotless is to clean the grout between the tiles on a regular basis. Well, these are the two areas where you keep stepping in and out every now and then. Likewise, these two sections become untidy in no time, thereby compelling you to get it cleaned daily. However, the most important thing is to first understand the key reason behind those grout stains. In the case of bathrooms, mildew or mold leads to stains in the grout. On the other hand, a combination of mildew, food stains, and household traffic causes grout stains at kitchens. Whatever is the cause of staining, a strong cleaning solution, an acidic chemical cleaner, a grout cleaning machine or a hard surface extractor will eliminate all stains from the grout to give your bathroom and kitchen a new and bright look.

This is NOT what you want to be doing:

So, here are a few tips on grout and tile cleaning that would surely help you sustain hygiene for your bathroom and kitchen:

  • First, take a mop and wipe thoroughly across the floor tiles. If you have any dry cloth, get the wall tiles wiped with it prior to starting with the grout cleaning process. This would clean away all the dust that have already been accumulated.

  • If you have a strong cleaning solution, apply it on the grout. Just be careful that the rest of the areas are all covered. You can also use a machine if you wish to keep all the tiles and the grout clean and fresh.

  • In case you are going for a tile cleaner, make sure to leave it for at least half an hour. This would be sufficient to remove the stains completely.

  • Keep a hard-bristled brush always that would help in scrubbing the grout well. If you are not having one, an old toothbrush could do the job (you’ll lost a lot of time though!).

  • While rinsing the wall or floor, make sure you do it with clean water and dry thereafter. If required, do not hesitate to repeat the process as some stains can be stubborn and tend to sit tight.
