The holidays are upon us, which means holiday parties. Whether you’re planning on just family and friends or you want to throw a big party, you want your home to look good. Did you know that the tile and grout in your home can be some of the dirtiest areas in your home? If your tile and grout is clean, it will make a big impact on the rooms where it’s located.
Tips for Spotless Tile & Grout for the Holidays
1. Clean spills right away. Tile is a great flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms because it’s not prone to water damage. While it does resist water damage, tile and grout are not immune to damage form liquids and nasty stains. Avoid damage and stains by cleaning spills up as soon as they occur. When water and other liquids sit on tile and grout for long periods of time more dirt will be attracted to it. As grout continues to get dirty it will be harder to clean.
2. Protect your floors. Increased foot traffic, spills and other activities can negatively impact tile and grout. You can protect your floors by laying down area rugs and mats. You don’t have to completely cover your beautiful, but you can lay rugs and mats down in high traffic areas and any areas where spills are more likely to occur.
3. Sweep & vacuum often. Tile and grout can stand up to a little bit of dust and dirt but when it builds up it can damage it. Foot traffic will grind dust and dirt into your tile and grout. This can scuff it, lightly scratch it and even stain it. Sweeping and vacuuming is a great way to protect your tile and grout. Better than protecting possible damage is the fact that your floors will look cleaner when you sweep and vacuum regularly.
4. Have your tile & grout cleaned professionally. Even if you take good care of your tile and grout, it will start to look dull and discolored. It’s impossible for you to remove all the dirt and debris that accumulates. You also can’t prevent accidents. They’re called accidents for a reason. Maintain a regular schedule of professional tile and grout cleaning. Professionals use methods that include effective solutions, pressure washing and high-powered extraction to remove dirt and debris that seeps deeply into the grout. After you’ve had your floors professionally cleaned it’s important to have them sealed. Sealing your grout lays a protective barrier to repel new dirt and debris. Another option is to re-color grout for a brand-new look.
