  • How to Get Your Grout and Tile Clean for the Holidays

    The holidays are upon us! It’s a magical time of year, but it also can be a stressful time of year. Why? There’s so much to do – shopping for gifts, cooking, baking, wrapping, decorating, and of course, cleaning.

    You should to clean before, during, and after the holidays to keep your house looking great. During this holiday season, you likely will have many family members and friends in your home. You don’t want your house looking dirty with guests around, but all these guests will potentially make your house dirty, as well.

    Cleaning isn’t fun, and it’s even more not fun during the holiday season when there’s more messes and more fun around! If your floor tiles and grout need a good cleaning before Thanksgiving kicks off the holiday season, you should invest in a quality tile and grout cleaner and sealer. Cleaner and sealer specifically made to clean the dirt out of grout will save you time and money. You will get your floors cleaned faster, so you have more time to entertain and spend with loved ones.

    Before Thanksgiving, you will want to use Grout Shield Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner.  This is good to use if you haven’t properly cleaned your grout in a long time. This tile and grout cleaner is good for lifting deep stains. It helps get tough-to-reach stains out of the pores. It’s easy to use too! Just mix 1 oz of the deep cleaner with 8 oz of warm water. Brush product into the grout. Let the mixture sit on your grout for a few minutes. Then, wipe clean with a sponge. You’re done! Your floor will look brand new.

    Before guests arrive, you’ll want to apply either the Grout Shield Clear Sealer or the Grout Shield Color Sealer to your floors to seal and protect your grout lines from absorbing dirt and spills. The color sealer allows you to change the color of your grout.

    Now throughout the holidays, people will spill drinks, food, and track in dirt, water, snow, and mud into your home – its inevitable!

  • Use Real Grout Cleaner and Not Regular Household Cleaners

    You just looked at the tile in your kitchen and bathrooms. Gross. They need a good scrubbing. You go into the cabinets and pull out a bunch of cleaning supplies. You get your mop and sponge out and start scrubbing away. You scrub, you scrub, and you scrub. The tile doesn’t look shiny and the grout is still dirty. How can this be happening?

    Well, you’re probably not using the right grout and tile cleaner. In fact, you may be using chemicals that actually harm your tile and grout lines. At Grout Shield, we make quality grout cleaners and grout sealers, so we wanted to share with you how not to clean your grout. The following are some chemicals/cleaners that can be wreaking havoc on your tile and grout.

    • Homemade cleaners with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide can help clean your tile and grout, but they won’t work well at lifting deep stains or dark discolorations.
    • Chemical-filled grout and tile cleaners can damage the tile and flooring in your home. Cleaners with ammonia can damage the finish on tiles and grout
    • Bleach, although it can remove stains and mold from grout, it also can destroy your grout by causing it to crack and crumble. Bleach gets rid of the color of the mold, but not the mold itself, so you’re not actually cleaning your grout with bleach.
    • Acidic cleaners, like vinegar, will take the shine and finish off the tile and grout. Vinegar and other acidic cleaners can also discolor the grout lines and tile.
    • You should never scrub your grout. If you scrub your grout, you’re wearing away the top layers of the grout and weakening it, which can cause it to crack or break.

    Grout Shield sells a Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner and a Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner both products are great at lifting stains and dirt from the pores in the grout.
