Homes are made to be lived in. Whether it’s a rainy spring day or the kids were playing football on the grass, there’s a good chance mud will get trekked into your home. As you know, mud is wet and brownish/black in color. Even if you have darker floors, mud is noticeable.
Mud can be easy to wipe off tiles, but the mud can be hard to clean out of grout because it quickly absorbs into the grout lines.
Since grout is porous and usually light-colored, it will easily absorb the dark color of mud and become discolored. With the right grout cleaning and sealing products, you can clean up the mud and it will look like the mud was never there. Remember, you want to clean up mud immediately, so the mud stain is easier to clean up and disappear.
Our team at Grout Shield can help you get rid of mud stains in grout for good. A mud stain on your grout can make your kitchen or grout look old, dull, and dirty, even if you clean it regularly.
Besides getting rid of the discoloration, Grout Shield products also rid the grout of bacteria and other harmful germs that get absorbed into the grout lines over time. You never know what germs are lurking the mud that is brought into your home, and you don’t want to walk into the mud every day.
Most home-cleaning products and articles may tell you to clean up the stains with bleach, ammonia or white vinegar. Sure, these chemicals and products may work, but they also aren’t really cleaning the grout, and many of these chemicals can actually cause the grout to crack or break.
To remove the mud stains, you want to first blot the area with a clean cloth, but wait till the mud is dry or you will risk spreading the mud around more. Wipe the area clean of the mud.
