Grout is one of the most temperamental materials to clean. It is designed to be porous; making the dirt, grime, mildew and mold easily absorbed. Not only can these elements be difficult to remove, your grout could be damaged in the process. If proper chemical cleaners are applied to grout, it could begin a train reaction to the deterioration of your grout. Grout color can be lightened if proper cleaners are used, but the filth might remain. It is common that when new homeowners move in, they are not informed as to what kind of surface they have or the type of grout used, and the wrong cleansers could lead to disaster. Knowing what materials are used in your home is prudent for proper care. So now that question to ask yourself: “Should I clean my grout myself or hire a professional?”
