If you have tile and grout you know quickly it can become dirty. It doesn’t take much for your tile and grout to get dirty, especially in your kitchen. Silver State Floor Restoration talks about some tips on how to keep your grout clean in between professional cleanings and for everyday use.
Use Floor Mats
Floor mats can be your best friend when you want to keep your grout clean. Make sure you put mats in doorways or high-traffic areas. This will help keep your grout cleaner for longer periods of time. It is smart to put mats in front of sinks, stoves, or other places where you may be standing for a length of time. Also, remember that you need to keep your carpet clean because carpets can attract dirt which can get onto your tile and into your grout.
Dry Wet Floor Tile & Grout
When you leave water on the tile it can start to cause damage to your tile and grout. This is crazy because many people have tile and grout in their bathrooms and their showers. You need to make sure that you dry off any tile that ends up getting wet. You never want water to just sit on the tile. It can start to cause damage to the grout plus it can start leaving hard water stains on your tile that is harder to clean off.
