Messes and spills are inevitable, especially if you have kids running around the house. Dirt and other spills can easily absorb into unsealed grout lines. Over time, grout will start to darken from these spills and messes.
Grout is porous, so it absorbs everything it encounters. Grout is a good breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. Salmonella, listeria, and E.coli can easily spread in the kitchen or bathroom from foot traffic if the germs are lingering in the grout.
The better you clean your tile and grout, the less bacteria there will be to spread and the better your home will look.
If your floors haven’t been thoroughly cleaned in a while, you want to use a trusted grout and tile cleaner to remove dirt, mold, bacteria mildew and stains from the grout. Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner lifts deep stains. You will see your grout turning back to its original color. Throughout the year, you can use Grout Shield’s Maintenance Cleaner, which cleans stains and is good to use on a regular basis.
After you clean, you want to seal your grout, as well. A grout sealer will protect future spills from seeping into the grout lines. You should try and seal your grout once or twice a year – over time, sealers break down due to the amount of people walking on it. If your grout and tile are sealed, the cleaning process will also be easier for you. Pick up a bottle of Grout Shield’s clear grout sealer to protect your grout and tile. Our grout sealers come in a clear and color option – we can match any color grout.
If your grout and tile are clean, you will feel a lot better about the spills your kids accidently make.
Grout Shield also sells grout brushes and chamois cloths that help easily remove dirt and debris from the grout without wrecking it.
