Clean Tile and Grout: Tile is a beautiful and versatile flooring option for the high-traffic areas in your home like your kitchen or bathroom. Although commonly subject to large amounts of wear and tear, with proper cleaning and maintenance your tile can stay beautiful for years to come. While tile is technically a hard surface, there are microscopic pores on the surface of the tile and in the grout that can trap dirt particles, bacteria, and mold. The best way to ensure your tile’s lifespan is regular deep cleaning finished with professional-grade penetrative sealant to protect your tile and make cleaning easier in the future.
Keeping it Clean In Between
Due to the porous nature of grout and it’s recessed setting, it becomes a magnet for tiny dirt particles, mold and other contaminants. For clean tile and grout, sweeping and mopping are key in the upkeep of your tiles, but don’t forget to use an old towel to mop up any leftover water on the grout lines. Never use bleach or acidic solutions on your tile and grout as they can eat away at the grout and leave it brittle and more likely to deteriorate. You’ll need to establish your own regular pattern of DIY cleanings, but to get truly transformative results that don’t harm the long-term health of your grout, you should go with a professional.
