Common household products are great for cleaning so many things in your home from the countertops to the hardwood floors. You’re probably used to using certain, reliable brands that help make your home fresh, clean, and shiny. Unfortunately, most, if not all of these cleaners are not able to truly or thoroughly clean grout.
Grout gets dirty just like everything else in your home. In fact, grout probably even gets dirtier. Grout is porous so it easily absorbs anything it comes in contact with. If you clean the grout with regular household cleaners, your grout may never look cleaner. Also, many household cleaners are harsh on the grout.
When it comes to cleaning grout, the chemicals in a product matter. Different surfaces require different cleaning methods and products. The right maintenance for your grout can be achieved by using grout cleaner and grout sealer by a company like Grout Shield. Grout Shield cleaners have a neutral-pH level that is safe on grout and tile. Grout Shield cleaners help grout lines look renewed and clean. The formula is a non-combustible, fast-aching concentrate.
Below are some ingredients that are found in most common cleaners that can hurt your grout and tile.
Bleach – Bleach doesn’t clean anything. Bleach does not contain a cleaning agent. Many bleaches contain sodium hypochlorite, which can disintegrate concrete (main component of most grout). Your surface may smell clean, but the dirt and germs are still there.
Ammonia – Ammonia can damage the finish off grout and tile.
Vinegar and Acidic Cleaners – The acid in vinegar will get rid of the finish and shine on your grout and tile; it can discolor them, as well.
