Cleaning Grout Advice

By Mark On February 7, 2017 Under Cleaning Grout

Many offer the advice that keeping stone tiles cleaning with routine cleaning is relatively easy. This statement in itself is true. However, it is often the case that the dirt from the tile surface is pushed into the grout lines.

This staining may happen gradually over time. It may be that you start to feel that your grout is looking aged before you ever notice any deterioration of your stone tiles. Individuals may start by trying to deep clean the grout lines themselves. However, they soon realise that the task is challenging and reach out for professional assistance.

We have put together the following advice that we hope aids the process of keeping your grout cleaner:

  • Take care whilst mopping your stone tiles. The dirt that is sitting on the tile surface can be pushed into the grout lines. Due to the fact that grout is porous this means that it is difficult to remove.
  • Sand Stone Cleaning LincolnEnsure that you select an appropriate cleaning product. Many household products leave residue on the tile and grout. This builds up over time and can be very difficult to break down. The products themselves are challenging to fully rinse away. Therefore it is important to choose a product that is best suited to your individual tile type.
  • Don’t resort to using bleach. So many of our clients say they felt it as their only option due to poor results from other products. This does not mean that it is an appropriate product for cleaning grout. Bleach deteriorates the grout and breaks it down over time. Not only that but it can damage the surface of the surrounding tiles.
  • Do not use wire brushes to clean grout lines. Grout cleaning can be quite an arduous and challenging task. However, use of a wire brush can damage the grout. Instead select a specialised cleaning product with a softer brush. This means that you will be able to clean grout without the possibility of damaging it.

We will always offer advice on the best cleaning products and techniques for your stone floors after restoration. Please call today on 0845 4599941 to arrange a survey.
