  • Grout Shield Keeps Floors Safe From Pets

    grout

    Floors are the part of the home that can get the dirtiest the fastest. From dirt and leaves to spills and mold, flooring is susceptible to getting dirty fast. Now when you have a pet, your floors can get dirtier even faster. Dogs and cats can track in mud, water, leaves, grass, bugs.. you name it! Not to mention, their fur gets everywhere! Not only can pets make a floor dirty, but they can even damage the tiling or woodwork with their claws.

    Replacing a floor is an expensive project, so if you’re looking to restore your tiled flooring, the best thing you can do is buy quality tile and grout cleaning and sealing products to make your flooring look brand new again. With the right products, it won’t even look like you have pets roaming around!

    If you have mostly ceramic tile, porcelain, or stone tile work in your home, your tiles probably look fine, because these materials are harder for scratch marks (from a pet) to be left behind; however, your grout lines may look dark, dirty, and may even smell!

    Normal cleaning products cannot easily remove dirt that has seeped into the porous grout lines. However, Grout Shield offers many products that remove dirt and liquids that have deeply penetrated the grout lines, including pet urine. If pet urine isn’t cleaned up immediately, it can seep deep into the grout lines, which means your home may smell odd even after you clean the floor. By using Grout Shield’s products, your grout lines will go from darkened and grimy to bright and clean.

    Remember, dirty grout isn’t just ugly, it is also unsanitary. If dirt and urine stay in grout lines, bacteria will grow making it unhealthy for you and your loved ones to walk on.

    Ready to get started?  Grout Shield Grout and Tile Cleaner will remove all dirt and stains from the grout. Just use a mop to distribute the cleaner and allow the formula to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush, followed by using a clean rag to wipe away any remaining cleaner.

    Dirt happens. Pet accidents happen. The best way to keep your floor and grout looking great is to seal your grout.

    Grout Shield’s Clear or Color Sealer protects the grout. The color sealer allows you to change the color of the grout to any color you want.

    If you are looking for an easy way to restore your grout and floors from your pet’s messes without spending a fortune, purchase Grout Shield grout cleaners and sealers. To learn more about or to purchase Grout Shield’s products, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.

     

  • Get Help Passing a Restaurant Inspection with Grout Shield Cleaners, Sealers

    grout cleaner

    Keeping your home clean is a no-brainer, but keeping a restaurant clean is ESSENTIAL. Whenever you’re preparing and serving food to the public, everything and anything needs to be clean. From top to bottom, equipment, rooms, appliances, utensils, etc., must be clean and sterile…even humans need to wash up before encountering food and dishware. If things are not clean, germs can spread, and guests can get sick. Unlike your home, restaurant owners and managers must be very concerned of the cleanliness of their restaurants, because they get inspected. Failing a health inspection can do a lot of harm for a business.

     

    Of course, customers care about quality service and food, but they do pay attention to the cleanliness of an establishment. Would you want to eat somewhere that had dirty floors? Crumbs everywhere? Stains? Spills? Rats? Probably not.

     

    For this article, we wanted to discuss tile floors in restaurants, whether its in the dining area or in the kitchen. Both areas receive a lot of foot traffic; the kitchen floor also runs the risk of getting stained and dirty due to spills and splatters. Despite scrubbing and moping away, the tile can become dull and the grout will become darker over time. Why? Well, grout acts like a sponge and it absorbs any liquid/dirt it comes in contact. Your beautiful white grout could now look very brown. Despite how much you clean it, it may not be enough, and it could look dirty. The solution? A proper tile and grout cleaner and sealer can help your restaurant’s tiles and grout look pristine year-round.

     

    Restaurant floors can be difficult to maintain considering guests and staff drag in a lot of outside dirt, water, debris; the kitchen has its own messes that can dirty grout and tile like grease. Over time, the grease and dirt build up can make a restaurant look old, dirty, and grimy. No one would want food served from a place like that!

     

    With Grout Shield grout cleaners and grout sealers, you can finally remove all the dirt and stains from the tile and seal them, so it will be harder for them to become dirtier. This means, you will have an easier time maintaining them throughout the year. No more scrubbing for hours! Your employees can spend more time doing other things besides scrubbing or mopping the floor.

     

    By using Grout Shield’s products, your restaurant will be able to pass the sanitary standards, so you won’t risk paying a fine, losing customers, or even shutting down. Dirty floors can attract bugs and rodents (which is definitely a sanitary no-no) so cleaning them regularly with quality products is critical.

     

    Here is an example of some of Grout Shield’s products that can turn your restaurant’s kitchen from drab to fab.

     

    Grout Shield Color Sealer – This product allows restaurant owners/staff to match or change the color of the existing grout without having to remove any of the grout. With this product, any color is possible. It also protects the grout from absorbing dirt or liquid, since it is sealed. You can even change the whole look of a room with a grout color change!

     

    Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner – If your restaurant floor grout is dirty and you’re happy with the same color, this cleaner is what you need for the job. Dilute the cleaner in water, damp your mop and towel dry.

     

    Grout Shield Restoration Kit – For restaurants owners, this may be your best bet. This kit is the best way to fully restore a floor. Grout Shield offers seven different package kits to help restore the look of grout. Each kit’s contents vary depending of the size floor you intend to clean. The kits include: cleaner, sealant, colors, chamois, brushes, and instructions.

     

    Although you need more than a clean floor to pass a restaurant health inspection, Grout Shield products can definitely clean and restore your floors and have them shining again.

  • Transform A Room with Grout Color

    grout color

    Grout isn’t just a filler on the floor, walls, or counters keeping the tiles together; it’s also more than a just a medium that keeps tile from cracking. It can also be a huge design element that pulls together the look of a room. It isn’t just important to choose the tile color, but the grout color is just as important. You want your grout color to properly complement your tile color in a way that reflects your personal tastes and desires for the look of the room. When choosing a grout color, there’s some techniques you can follow to help you make a decision.

    Matching color – If you’re looking for your floors to be the center of attention in a room, it’s a good idea to blend or match the grout color with the tile color. Why? Any pattern or details in the stone or tile will stand out more.
    Neutral color – This is a safe choice; these colors generally match most tiles and make a floor look uniform. It’s not too flashy. Colors include: gray, beige, brown.

    Contrasting color – Contrasting colors help the tiles stand out and the grout lines stand out and pop. Black tile with white grout creates a very dramatic effect.

    If you’re looking to hide dirt and stains, dark grout color is a better choice; although, dark grout colors can fade over time due to the light.

    At Grout Shield, we can match any color in the world when it comes to grout color! You can choose a paint chip from your local store or a color from a major manufacturer or any of Grout Shield’s color codes. Options are endless! Some colors Grout Shield have include: dark ash, summer wheat, light pewter, bone, pueblo, avocado, twilight, dusty rose, and hemp.

  • Bring Your Shower Back to Life with Grout Shield

    grout




    A bathroom can be a person’s own personal oasis. It’s a place to relax and get refreshed and renewed. For a luxurious look, many bathrooms are designed with stone tile. Unfortunately, stone tiles and the grout surrounding it can start to look aged and discolored due to years of moisture, soap scum, and ineffective cleaning. Your beautiful stoned looks ruined. It may even look like your shower is dirty even when it’s not. Regular cleaning products cannot undo the damage that’s been done. In fact, they might make the dirty tiles and grout even worse off! That’s why you need proper grout and tile cleaner to get the job done.


    Many cleaners out there contain ammonia and bleach, which will damage stone over time. Both grout and stone tiles are very porous, so they act like sponges absorbing all dirt and germs they come in contact with. Unfortunately, in a shower, wiping away moisture, mold, and mildew as soon as it begins to settle is nearly impossible, since the shower is always exposed to these elements. Grout Shield’s cleaners and sealers make it possible to maintain clean and beautiful bathroom grout and tile all year long.


    With Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner, you are able to safely lift strains and clean areas without compromising the stone or grout. To use: Use a mop to distribute the cleaner over the entire floor. Allow the grout cleaner to saturate into the grout for about 10 to 15 minutes, then scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After scrubbing the dirt away with a few brushstrokes, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner. Then, use Grout Shield’s Enhancer Seal to protect the grout and tile from future dirt and stains. The sealer will make the tiles look vibrant and new; it’s also extremely easy to use. The sealer brightens and restores surfaces back to its original condition.

    Ph-balanced chemicals in Grout Shield products truly get your tiles and grout clean in a safe way. Does your bathroom shower need cleaning and sealing?

  • Dirty Grout Can Make Your Home Smell

    dirty grout



    Have you noticed a funky smell in your home lately? Most likely, you’ve mopped the floors, gotten the carpets cleaned, lit candles, washed appliances, furniture, the bathroom, and clothing, yet the smell won’t go away. You know you’re a clean person, so why does your home have a smell that won’t go away? Believe it or not, the culprit could be your grout lines in your kitchen or bathroom. Just like a carpet, grout absorbs anything it comes in contact with. This means it’s holding on to all sorts of bacteria that can emit smells into the air. In fact, a study showed that at least nine different species of bacteria have been found in tile floors, most of which came off people’s shoes!


     

    Grout is porous, which is why it absorbs dirt, debris, and liquids so easily. Because it’s porous, it also is more prone to staining. If your grout looks dirty, then there is definitely a chance the smell in your home can be coming from the tile floor. The smell could be from pet urine, dirt, spilled coffee, or a number of other things that could have gotten on the floor. Unlike a carpet or hard wood floor, ridding grout lines of stains and smells by scrubbing and mopping isn’t as easy. Most cleaners don’t truly clean the grout or get rid of stains.


     

    Instead of spending hours scrubbing your grout lines or spending endless money on trying to clean your home, the best thing you can do is invest in a product that is dedicated to specifically cleaning and sealing grout lines. Grout Shield has grout cleaners and sealers that absorb into the grout and easily remove away stains, dirt, and anything else that’s been clinging onto your grout lines. Grout Shield offers a Grout & Tile Cleaner, a Maintenance Cleaner, a Clear Seal, a Color Seal, and an Enhancer Seal. Grout Shield’s cleaners and sealers come in different size bottles, so you are able to clean rooms that are 250 square feet up to 6,000 square feet.


     

    Grout Shield’s cleaners and sealers are easy to use, and will protect your grout line from smelling again in the future. If you’re tired of coming home to a funky smelling house, it’s time to clean that grout! To purchase Grout Shield grout restoration products, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.


  • Grout Care with Pets at Home

    pets and tile

     

    For many homeowners, pets are part of their household and family. Unfortunately, these pets can make quite a mess on flooring; sometimes, dogs and cats can even do some damage to your beautiful floors. If you aren’t replacing your floors anytime soon, the next best thing you can do is purchase quality cleaning products to make your tile floors in your kitchen and bathroom look like you don’t even own a pet!

     

     

     

    If you have stone, porcelain, or ceramic tile in your home, you’re probably in good shape. These types of tile don’t scratch easily. And, pet urine doesn’t affect or harm these types of tiles like it would say to a hardwood floor; however, your grout lines might be in rough shape.

     

     

     

    There’s a good chance your dog or cat has accidentally relieved themselves on the floor before or dragged in dirt, mud, grass, or anything else from the outside onto your tiles and grout. Unfortunately, grout is porous and any liquid or solid they get on your grout will be absorbed and seep deep below the surface. Because of this, the grout can darken or change color completely. Normal soap and water won’t be able to truly get rid of what your pet left behind. Not only is this unsightly, it can become unsanitary for you and your loved ones to walk on.

     

     

     

    If you believe your grout lines are compromised from any spills or accidents from your pets, you’re not alone, and there is a solution. By using proper grout cleaning and grout sealing products, you can transform your grout back to its original color. Grout Shield Grout and Tile Cleaner will remove all dirt and stains from the grout. Just use a mop to distribute the cleaner and allow the formula to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush, followed by using a clean rag to wipe away any remaining cleaner.

     

     

     

    Since you can’t prevent all accidents from happening with your pets, it’s best you seal your grout after you clean it as well, so it is harder for the grout to become dirty. Grout Shield’s Clear or Color Sealer protects the grout. The color seal allows you to change the color of the grout to any color you want.

     

     

     

    If you are looking for an easy way to restore your grout from your pet’s messes without spending a ton of money, purchase Grout Shield grout cleaners and sealers. To learn more about or to purchase Grout Shield’s products, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.

     

     

  • Clean Grout the Right Way

      grout cleaner

    For whatever reason, the grout lines surrounding your tiles in your kitchen, bathroom, or pool area are dirty. Spills, dirt, water, mud – you name it – can cause your grout to look dirty and old over time. Even if you thoroughly wash and scrub your floor or shower, it still can look like you haven’t cleaned the area in years! Cleaning grout can be a pain. There is a lot of information out there about how to clean grout, and much of this information is misleading or just aren’t effective. Below, we will share with you some ineffective, but commonly suggested, grout cleaning tips, and what you should be doing instead. With the right products and methods, cleaning grout can be easier than ever.

     

    Use Bleach – Bleach is often suggested as a cleaning solution for discolored grout. Although bleach can lighten the grout, it usually is only a temporary fix, and usually only works with white or light colored grout lines. Especially in the bathroom, mold and mildew will easily return to the area, despite using bleach. Bleach can actually damage the grout.

     

    Use Vinegar –  Although using water and vinegar can work on cleaning the grout, it can take a long time to scrub the grout clean. Although the vinegar works, it can also damage the grout.

     

    Since you don’t want to damage your grout, what is best to use? Grout Shield offers grout cleaners safely removes excess dirt or grease from the grout surface, as well as any previously applied grout sealer. The cleaner bonds to the grout. Grout Shield cleaners are neutral pH-cleaners that are non-combustible and fast-acting. After brushing the Grout Shield cleaner into the grout and letting the mixture sit for a few minutes, you are then able to easily wipe it away with a sponge. The grout will be clean as new.

    To prevent this level of dirtiness from occurring again, it’s best to seal your grout after cleaning it. Grout Shield also offers clear and color grout sealers to protect your grout from future stains.

  • Great Review! - WOW! Worked on paint stained grout!

    Several years ago I dropped a whole half gallon of paint on my tile floor! The paint easily removed from the tile itself, but it stained the light grout. I had it professional cleaned and scrubbed the grout with bleach and any cleaner I could think of....it was still stained. When I saw this Grout Restoration kit, I really didn't think it would do much, but what the heck. HOLEY MOLEY! PERFECT! I used the cleaner as directed and then the grout color. My floor is perfect again! THANK YOU!!!!
