Many homeowners choose tile flooring because it is one of the most durable and maintenance floors out there. Not only that, but when you have tile flooring, it is much cooler than other types of flooring as well. However, even though it is nearly indestructible, you need to care for it to ensure it lasts for years to come. The weakest point of your tile flooring is the grout lines. The porous material that makes up grout makes it susceptible to damage if you aren’t careful. Silver State Floor Restoration is here to share some tips to help you preserve your grout and protect it from damage.
What is the Proper Way to Clean Grout?
The first thing that you need to think about with tile flooring is cleaning. The grout lines can become damaged if they aren’t cleaned properly. You need to make sure you’re using the right type of cleaner on your grout. Here are some cleaning options.
– OxiClean: Many people are used to using OxiClean in their laundry room to get sparkling whites, but this cleaner can also be mixed with water to create a great solution to clean grout lines. When you apply the cleaner, make sure you’re letting it sit on the grout for about 10 minutes to get the job done.
– Clorox: Bleach is a cleaning product that can cause damage if you aren’t using it properly. When you’re cleaning the grout lines, you can mix up a paste using bleach and baking soda that can clean up grout lines with ease. Allow the paste to sit on the grout lines for about 30 minutes before removing to see a beautifully cleaned surface.
– Goo Gone Grout: Goo Gone products are used to clean up several different types of surfaces. They have not created a product that does a great job of cleaning up grout. Make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions on how to use this product.
