Tile and Grout Cleaning 101

Tile and grout are a popular choice for kitchens and bathrooms because they are durable, easy to clean, and come in a variety of colors and styles. However, over time dirt and stains can build up on the tile and grout, making them look dirty and discolored. If this happens, it's important to clean them as soon as possible to prevent the dirt and stains from setting in and becoming difficult to remove. In order for your bathroom tiles to have a long life and function properly, they need to be cleaned correctly and regularly.


Grout

Grout is a type of mortar used to fill the spaces between tiles, and it typically contains sand, water, and cement. It is applied with a trowel and then hardens as it dries. Once grout dries, it forms a hard, waterproof seal that keeps dirt and moisture from seeping into the cracks between tiles. Grout is porous and can absorb dirt and stains over time, so it's important to clean it regularly to keep your tile looking its best.


Tile

Tiles are individual pieces of material, usually square or rectangular, that are used to cover surfaces like floors and walls. They can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, glass, stone, and metal.


Why Should You Get Your Grout Cleaned?

Dirty grout can cause a number of problems in your home. It is unsightly and can make your tile look dirty and discolored. Discolored grout can make your bathroom look old and dingy. Dirty grout is also a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause respiratory problems and a slew of other health problems- not to mention it brings a musty smell to your home! If dirt and stains are allowed to set in, they can become very difficult to remove.

Not only is nasty grout gross and a health issue, but it can also wear on your tile over time. If your grout becomes cracked or damaged, it can cause your tiles to become loose. This can be a serious safety hazard as well as an eyesore.
