Dirty grout doesn’t just look bad; it also isn’t very sanitary. Grout easily collects moisture, dirt, crumbs, bacteria, and basically absorbs anything it comes in contact with. Think of all the things that could possibly touch your grout: shoes, pets, food, water, poisonous chemicals, makeup, and more.
Grout is porous, which is how it is able to absorb things it comes in contact with. Since it’s collecting all of this dirt, liquids, and water, it becomes a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Even though you mop and scrub your floors and walls meticulously, bacteria can still thrive in the grout, because it’s been so deeply absorbed.
A grout cleaner and sealer are the best solutions to getting rid of unsanitary and unsightly grout. You definitely don’t want to be walking on all those germs, or having your little child touching tiles and putting that bacteria into their mouth. All of the dirt within the grout can be very difficult to clean and keep clean. But with the ride grout cleaner and sealer, this process becomes a lot easier. You can spend less time cleaning the grout to restore it to a “like new” appearance.
Since there are so many ways bacteria can land onto kitchen floor grout, we will explain the best way to de-germ this room’s grout. First, sweep the floor to remove any loose dirt or crumbs on the surface of the tiles and grout. Next, apply Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner. Use a mop to distribute the cleaner over the entire floor. Allow the grout cleaner to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes, ten scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After you scrub the dirt away with a few brushstrokes, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner.
After you clean the grout with the cleaner, it’s a smart idea to utilize Grout Shield’s sealers to protect the grout from getting dirty, stained and germ-filled again.
