Almost everyone enjoys having a clean house. However, one thing that often gets forgotten or put on the back burner when it comes to house cleaning is bathroom tiles. There are many perks to having your bathrooms and showers adorned in tile, but in order for them to look and function at their best, they need to be cleaned correctly.
Tiles vs Grout
One of the first things to know about when it comes to shower floor tile cleaning is to understand the difference between tile and grout. Tiles are made out of many different materials from ceramic, laminate, to natural stone. They are extremely durable and waterproof, making them the perfect material for bathrooms and showers! Grout is a cement or sand mixture that is used to attach the tile to floors and walls. It acts as a filler in between tiles as well. Once applied, it hardens over a few hours, keeping your tiles stiffly in place.
Perks of Bathroom Tiles
With tile, moisture resistance is paramount, so it is often the material of choice for bathrooms and showers. They are easy to maintain in environments with a lot of moisture. They are durable and long-lasting and even heat safe. On top of their functionality, tile design options are limitless! Shower tiles come in all different materials, sizes, colors and can be arranged in beautiful mosaic patterns. They can bring a sense of personality and aesthetic to your home and bathroom.
Why Do Bathroom Tiles Need to be Cleaned?
Although bathroom and shower floor tiles are waterproof and highly durable, they are not indestructible. If they are not properly cleaned and cared for, they can slowly be worn down. Grout is extremely porous, thus making it extremely susceptible to trapping moisture and dirt. Because of the porous nature of grout, your tile and grout need to be cleaned properly to avoid mold and mildew. When grout fails, your tile fails.
The beauty of your tile is also very important. A crusty, soap scum-filled shower, is simply not living up to its best appearance. There is nothing beautiful about bathroom tile that is covered in filth and hairspray, Tile and grout cleaning is very important when it comes to both the function and beauty of your tile. In fact, cleaning tile should be at the top of the cleaning priority list!
Shower Tile and Grout Cleaner
If you are about to grab a random grout cleaner, or your old mop and a bucket of soapy hot water to clean your tile floors, think again. Mopping simply spreads grime around on your floors, and that hot soapy water gets brown and muggy fast...not doing very much cleaning. After the soapy, muggy mop water dries, it leaves behind a soapy residue. Over time, that residue darkens your tile and grout.
