When it comes to tile and grout, many people prefer it due to its durability, easy maintenance, and versatile style. Though it is sturdy, it does have a lifespan like anything else. To ensure that your tile and grout lasts, there are some basics care and maintenance that needs happen. In an effort to help you keep your tile and grout healthy and beautiful as long as possible, we at Silver State Floor Restoration would like to discuss some important factors that keeps your tile and grout in good condition for years to come.
Never Leave a Spill on Tile & Grout for Long
Tile is a little bit more durable against food and pet stains, unlike carpet for instance. You can easily wipe it up with a towel if in the event you accidentally drop something onto your tile floor. You still need to act fast if you do spill something on it just because it is easier to keep your tiles clean, however. The greater your risk of staining the grout, particularly deeply colored ones like red wine with the longer these messes linger, for instance.
Reduce Moisture Exposure on Tile & Grout
You definitely do not want to overdo it, as your tiles need to be cleaned fairly regularly, and while it is admittedly pretty challenging to clean your tiles without a little bit of water. Since it can actually harm them, you want to be sure you avoid bathing your tiles in excessive liquid. In addition to exposing your tiles and grout to mold, too much water makes it harder to clean it. Leading to decay and eventually ruining your tiles as the water can seep beneath the tile, creating a costly issue.
Do Not Use Harsh Tile Cleaners that Can Damage Grout
This idea can quickly backfire while it is tempting to want to really scrub your grout with strong cleansers. Causing pitting or other issues, excessively strong solvents can damage the grout. Since they can stain the grout, you should also avoid cleaning products with dyes in them. Being that it can etch the surface of your tile, you need to avoid using abrasive cleaning tools, such as steel wool. Stick with soft cloths and mops to clean the tile and grout instead.
