Accidents happen, including bathroom accidents. Whether it’s a cat, dog, or child, there’s a chance at some point in your home a baby or animal will urinate on your floors. If that’s the case, you need to clean the mess right away. Not only can urine stain your grout, it can smell extremely foul, especially if it’s from a cat.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid urine stains for good. You’ll never know it was there! Besides getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield products also rid the grout of bacteria and other harmful germs.
In most homes, grout is white or a lighter color, which means it can easily show urine. Since it is porous, grout will absorb all urine that lands on it. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, it will look like the bathroom accident didn’t happen. Remember, you want to clean urine stains immediately since urine can grow bacteria, making your floor unsanitary.
Most home-cleaning articles may tell you to clean up the urine with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these home mixes and chemicals may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout (For example: ammonia contains no cleaning agents), and many of these chemicals can actually cause the grout to crack or break.
To remove the urine, you want to first blot the area dry with a clean cloth. Wipe the area clean of the urine. You may notice your grout is stained a darker tint now and smells due to the urine. To remove the urine, you will want to use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner, which cleans and lifts deep and hard-to-clean stains out of the grout’s pores.
To use this cleaner, mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, brush the cleaner into the grout with a brush applicator. Let the mixture sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. Then, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge and towel dry the floor. The discoloration will be gone.
Now, if the urine stain still won’t go away, you can make the grout color look like new again with Grout Shield’s color sealer. You just squeeze the sealer into the grout lines. Then, spread it into the grout lines with a brush applicator or your finger and wipe away the excess with a towel or chamois. You can choose any color in the world to recolor your grout.

If you don’t need to recolor your grout, you should seal, after cleaning it, it to protect it from future urine accidents. Next time a bathroom accident occurs, the sealer will prevent the urine from seeping into the grout lines. Grout Shield also offers clear grout sealer, which will protect your grout.
