Generally commercial cleaners will use steam cleaners that can tidy up both the tile and the grout lines. Grout is porous and can harbor some nasty things like bacteria, but black mold is destructive and dangerous. The spores feed on organic materials common to most structures, residential or commercial and live on dry wall, carpet, insulation or sub-flooring compromising the structural integrity of the materials and sending out toxic spores. Chronic coughing, sneezing, eye and mucus membrane irritation and rashes, persistent headaches and chronic fatigue.

For legal reasons it behooves the commercial establishment to hire a commercial and well-equipped floor restoration company to tackle your cleaning job. Grout is a cement product and will react with any acidic cleaners as grout is an alkaline base. Repeated applications of acidic cleaners will dictate the eventual re-grouting of the floor. Most methods use steam cleaners to lift out the grime and disinfect the grout and tile. The pros use commercial grade machinery versus the consumer models that most people buy. Since disinfectants are not persistent, re-infection of bacterial occurs upon first use. For the home, mopping will take of the problem if done bi-weekly. For the commercial operator, particularly restaurants this is a daily routine in kitchens.

Make Grout Darker with Colorant VS Regrouting

Grout discoloration is due to mildew and molds. Being porous dirt impregnation is also a culprit. You can change tile grout color with a few caveats. First the grout must be clean to ensure proper adhesion of the color. Second you can go darker in color but not lighter. The most thorough method is to remove and replace the grout. You can go lighter in this instance. Colorants require porous grout to accept the color and that your tile is glazed to prevent stains on the tile. Another solution is an epoxy-based colorant that ‘paints’ over the grout. This will last for many years as it is a resin. There are many solutions to refinishing your grout, but re-grouting, coloring and epoxy paint are the primary solutions to sprucing up that grout.

Sealants are an important component in dealing with natural products and grout. Glazed tile is sealed by the manufacturing process. Porous tiles and natural stone products need to be sealed.
