Generally, you can do a pretty good job at home that will leave your bathroom looking cleaner than it’s ever been since there are many proven ways to clean your shower tiles. However, when you need to clean the shower tile and grout, it sometimes takes a little effort with scrubbing due to the Las Vegas deserts’ hard water buildup, along with soap scum and potential mildew and mold growth. To help you maintain clean shower tile and grout, we at Silver State Floor Restoration would like to offer some advice.
How Do I Get My Shower Grout Clean & White Again?
1) Hot Water Soak. If your shower tiles are already soaked in hot water, cleaning becomes more manageable. For the hot water soak, simply let the shower run hot water for 10-15 minutes. Because the grime and dirt come off quickly, your cleaning session can become somewhat enjoyable since the pores in the tiles become primed for cleaning.
You will need this pre-treatment process if you haven’t ever cleaned the shower tiles in your bathroom and you can avoid wasting energy scrubbing the tiles for too long. You can spray the tiles that do not get soaked should you have a handheld showerhead to every surface gets soaked. To remove any buildup of dirt, wait about 10 minutes before you begin the cleaning process, and begin scrubbing the edges of the tiles. You might not achieve significant results without using a cleaning solution you have filth in your grout, however.
2) Combine Baking Soda and Vinegar. When it comes to cleaning all remnants of dirt in the grouting, a combination of vinegar and baking soda is very effective. Pour vinegar into a spray bottle and soak your tiles in vinegar. Allow it to break down the buildup for about 30 minutes. To really get into the tiles and remove traces of dirt, you may want to use a grout brush or use a toothbrush if you do not have a grout brush lying around the house. You can make a paste using water and baking soda to take things up a notch if you are trying to maximize cleaning results. Begin applying this to the edges of the tiles where any traces of filth are visible after you’ve made a paste that resembles the consistency of toothpaste. Indicating that any nasty grout stains that remain are about to disappear, you can spray more vinegar to enhance this cleaning effect and may notice a bubbling. To target the edges of all the shower tiles and remove any residues that remain, begin using a circular motion with your grout brush or toothbrush. To ensure there is no mildew formation in the crevices, let your shower run for a bit and rinse the tiles thoroughly once the process is complete and your tiles are sparkling clean. Every so often, even with routine cleaning, you will eventually want to schedule professional cleaning for a deeper clean. Additionally, professionals can offer polishing and sealing services accordingly.
3) Final Thoughts for Tile & Grout Maintenance. You do not have to unnecessarily use harmful cleaning solutions that will drain into the environment and cause potential damage as the above is one of the best ways to clean your shower tiles is by using home remedies.
