Tile flooring is one of the most popular options for home owners to choose when installing a new floor into their home. Tile comes in many different textures, colors and sizes and is probably one of the most affordable options to go with. Tile can go with any type of decorating style and make a home look it’s finest. Tile is also sturdy and can last quite a while in a home before having to replace it or change to something different. It is easy to keep tile cleaned and looking new if you know what you are doing. There are many home owners that struggle with keeping their grout lines looking new because they are unfamiliar with how to do so.
Cleaning Grout Stains on Tile
There are some simple steps you can take to keep your tile looking new and your grout lines free from stains and unsightly looking areas. Grout stains can be difficult to remove because grout itself is extremely porous. Grout will absorb anything it comes into contact with immediately upon contact. A juice spill or pet accident can instantly be sucked into your grout if you do not take the proper precautions to avoid such mishaps from occurring. The number one fact you should be aware of is that new grout needs to be sealed.
Tile & Grout Sealing Procedures
If you are doing the installation of the tile yourself, then you have quite a job ahead of you, but it can be done. Do your homework when it comes to purchasing and installing a sealant. There are many different types of sealants on the market today that include a different type of finish or color as well. Most sealants require re-application and ultimately you will need to decide what is best for your new tile needs.
It is a general rule of thumb that any time you clean your grout with any type of treatment; you should then apply a new layer of sealant to the grout. This will assist in avoiding any future stains your grout may receive from spills or accidents that occur. Some grout cleaners that you purchase at the store will claim that they have a sealant built into the cleaner that you are using to clean the grout with. These cleaners often produce very poor results and end up making your grout even more vulnerable to stains.
