How to Clean Tile & Grout

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.

  1. Do you have natural stone, i.e. marble, travertine, onyx, granite?
  2. Is your stone sealed?
  3. 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.
