A pool in your backyard is your own personal oasis. It’s a spot at home where you enjoy spending time, whether you plan to go for a few laps or catch some rays on its edge. But, no one wants to spend time beside a dirty pool, right? The water in the pool isn’t the only thing that needs to be kept clean, the tile and grout all around the pool does too. Otherwise, your pool begins to look unkempt or old, and no one will want to go for a swim!
The grout lines between the tile out by the pool can get just as dirty as the grout you find in your bathroom or kitchen inside your home. On pool tile grout, algae, mold, dirt, and stains can form from moisture and liquids that have collected from rainwater, pool water, and other outdoor elements. Over time, your grout lines can go from bright beautiful colors to dingy, dull line. Even if you “clean” the area, it can look like you’ve never tried to keep the area clean! Unfortunately, many products are unable to truly lift stains and mold from grout lines.
They key to making your pool area look great again is to invest in quality grout cleaning products that can clean and seal your grout, so you can keep your pool looking clean and new all year round.
To clean your pool’s grout lines, you will need to drain your swimming pool if any of the grout goes beneath the water. If you only have tile surrounding the pool, you do not need to drain the pool. Make sure all your grout is dry. Then, sweep away any access debris or dirt that is on the surface of the tiles and grout. Next, you will use Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner to clean the area. Apply the cleaner to the area with a mop and let it saturate into the grout line for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, towel dry the area. After the grout is completely dry, you should apply Grout Shield’s clear or color sealer onto the area. Why? A grout sealer will protect your grout for longer, making it harder to get dirty-looking.
If you’re tired of your pool area never looking as clean as it should, it’s time you think about purchasing Grout Shield’s grout restoration products. To learn more about these products or to order a grout cleaner or grout sealer, call 1-800-631-0716 or click here.
