Here are some tips on how to clean grout the right way.
This weekend I was going through some Facebook groups that I am part of and I came across a post that asked others how they clean the grout on the floors at clients homes. I would like to share these posts with you, to not cause embarrassment, I have removed their identity
What do you think? Surprised? Me too!
I would like to share with you the proper way to clean tile and grout, without causing damage to you or to your floors.
- Do you have natural stone, i.e. marble, travertine, onyx, granite?
- Is your stone sealed?
- If not when is the last time you had it sealed, it should be done every 12-18 months depending on traffic flow.
If your floor seal is worn down, you can clean the grout lines with baking soda and water. Make a paste and put the baking soda paste in the grout lines and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes. Take a stiff brush (non metal) and start working the baking soda, use a dry cloth to wipe off the excess baking soda and take a wet cloth and wash down the area.
If you find you still have some spots, it may be that the grout is actually stained.
