Most of us do not think to look down at our feet when it comes to making your house looking nice. More often than not, most homeowners are distracted with the interior design, appliances in the home, and other features instead. The appearance of your grout often goes unnoticed until it gets too filthy because of this. There are a few things that you can do at home to help maintain the appearance of your tile grout for years to come that we at Silver State Floor Restoration would like to discuss today.
Respond to a Spill ASAP
Tile is a little bit more durable against food and pet stains, unlike carpets. You can easily wipe it up with a towel 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’s easier to keep your tiles clean, however. The greater your risk of staining the grout, the longer these messes linger, especially deeply colored ones like red wine, for example.
Can You Make Grout Waterproof?
While it is admittedly pretty challenging to clean your tiles without a little bit of water, you definitely do not want to overdo it since your tiles need to be cleaned fairly regularly. Since it can actually harm the tile and grout, 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, water can seep beneath the tile.
Clean Grout Without Harsh Chemicals
Since 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. Because it can etch the surface of your tile, avoid using abrasive cleaning tools, such as steel wool finally. Stick with soft cloths and mops to clean them instead.

Since it may be overdue for a professional cleaning, it is still looking a little bit careworn and dirty if in the event you have been doing your part in keeping your grout clean. We take pride in restoring the appearance of your grout and tiles to help keep it looking its very best.
