Tile Pompano Beach FL | Keeping Tile Grout Clean

General,Newsletter

If you like beautiful tile Pompano Beach FL in your bathroom, one of the drawbacks is the grout. Grout keeps the tiles together, but because it is light-colored and porous, it’s prone to water damage and stains. Tile grouts without proper cleaning and maintenance can become mildewed, stained, and even cracked. When grout starts cracking, water can seep behind the wall and cause major damage.

Daily Cleaning Routine

It is essential to keep your tiles clean after your bath or shower to prevent premature staining and damage from developing.  A daily wiping and spraying routine might seem a little annoying, but it will save you tons of work and money in the long run.

Weekly Deep Cleaning Maintenance

Even though you are doing your daily cleaning routine, you’ll still need to give your shower or bath a deep clean at least every week. Body oils and soap scum will still cling to the tile surfaces despite your daily cleaning efforts. A bi-weekly or weekly cleaning will give your grout a nice preventative clean. Water and baking soda paste, or hydrogen peroxide will help remove stains in the grout. Just be mindful not to mix hydrogen peroxide and vinegar as the combination of both creates peracetic acid which can irritate the eyes, skin, and respiratory system.

How to Deal with Seriously Stained Grout

Tile grout becomes grimy and stained to the point where the baking soda and your daily shower cleaner can’t quite do the job anymore because of a simple lack of attention. In this case, you need to use bleach to get rid of the stains. If you use an oxygen-based bleach or chlorine bleach, make sure to mix it or use it according to the manufacturer’s instructions in a well-ventilated area. Rinse the surface properly after each application.
