  • Kick off Your Spring Cleaning with Grout and Tile Care

    It’s almost spring! You know what that means? It’s spring cleaning time! Time to donate unused clothing, throw away clutter, and clean your tile and grout! After a cold, wet, snowy winter, your floors have taken a beating. Salt, water, snow, dirt, sand, mud, and more have been trekked through your house – all these dirty substances can make your tile and grout look dull and grimy.

    Your grout has likely absorbed all the dirt that landed on it, which means your grout lines are likely discolored. Grout can be difficult to clean when you don’t have the appropriate grout cleaner. Bleach, vinegars, and other chemicals will have you scrubbing the grout lines for hours with little to no improvement. In fact, these harsh chemicals can break the grout lines.

    This spring-cleaning season, you need a grout cleaner that cleans deep to remove dirt and debris. Grout Shield’s grout cleaners thoroughly clean grout. The Grout Shield Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner is perfect after winter time as it works to clean and lift deep stains out of the grout’s pores. To use, you mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, you brush the cleaner into the grout. Leave the mixture to sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. Then, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge. Just like that, your grout lines will be clean!

    To prevent future deep stains and discoloration, you’ll need to follow up your cleaning with a sealing product like Grout Shield Color Sealer and Grout Shield Clear Sealer . After applying these sealers, you can’t even tell the sealer is there (unless you change the color, of course). These are even great to use outside after the winter was harsh on your paths, house, and walkways.  These sealers are easy to use and apply. You can match or change the color of the existing grout without having to remove any of the grout with the color sealer.

    Ready to kick off your spring cleaning? Don’t forget about your tile and grout! Clean tile and grout can transform the look of your entire home. For more information or to purchase Grout Shield products, click our grout cleaning product page, or call toll free at 1-800-631-0716.

     

  • The Importance of Clean Grout for a Business

    Dirty grout isn’t just a problem for homeowners… it’s also a problem for business owners. Parks, restaurants, retail stores, grocery stores, banks, and more, all have grout. Businesses and public areas are at a higher risk of getting dirtier grout because of the foot traffic. These places have dirty shoes, spills, wheels, and much more walking and gliding over the grout and tile. Water, snow, food, dirt – you name it, it can fall on the floor!

    Being a public place, it’s even more essential to keep grout and tile clean. Grout is porous and be a breeding ground for bacteria and other pathogens. These public places need to pass health inspections in order to stay open. If a health inspector sees a dirty floor with dark-stained grout, he or she will assume the floor is filthy and loaded with germs that could make people sick. Businesses owners need to be concerned about the cleanliness of their grout and tiles if they want to keep their business open.

    Believe it or not, the public doesn’t just care about the product or service…they care about the setting. If a restaurant or store is dirty, a person may think twice about making a purchase in there. It is critical to keep your business clean in order to keep customers.

  • How to Care for Your Grout and Tile This Winter

    Winter is a harsh season as many states in the United Stated deal with frigid temperatures, ice, and snow. To protect ourselves from the elements, we wear heavy boots and clothing. Unfortunately, we, or guests in our homes, can drag a lot of unwanted things into our home like salt, mud, water, and snow. The salt, dirt, and water can easily seep into our grout lines and under our tiles, which can compromise or break them. The excess moisture can cause tile and grout to move, crack, or become dirty. And that’s just your inside tile! Outdoor tile and grout have to face the elements consistently.

    • Keep your shoes, boots, socks, and outwear in one room only, so you’re only getting a smaller area wet.
    • Sweep, vacuum, and mop your floors regularly during the winter to pick up dirt, sand, and salt that gets dragged around the house.
    • Dry off your pet as soon as they get in the door.

    Your kitchen and bathrooms see a lot of traffic on a daily basis. Not only do the grout lines encounter your shoes and feet, they can come in contact with dirt, mud, food, liquids, pet urine, hair, leaves, dust, debris, etc. Grout is porous, which means whenever it will easily absorb liquids and other things that touch it. For example, if you spill milk, the grout will absorb the milk. Over time, your grout will change color and even start to smell from everything it has absorbed.

    There’s a lot of things in your home to clean. Floors, windows, countertops, mirrors, toilets, showers, etc., so we understand that cleaning grout lines may get overlooked. Don’t ignore them any longer. Because grout it porous, it can cling onto bacteria and other germs, making you susceptible to sicknesses in your own home.

  • Benefits of Cleaning Your Grout and Tile

    Why do you clean your home? Do you want it to look presentable and good for you and guests? Do you want it to smell nice? Do you want it to be germ-free? Whatever the reason, cleaning your home is important. There’s a lot of areas in the home to clean: toilets, counter tops, floors, windows, tables, etc. etc.; however, there’s a part of the house that is often forgotten: grout.

    Your grout lines need to be cleaned as often as your tiles or any other item in your home. Grout is like a sponge, so it absorbs anything that touches it. From spilled milk to cat urine, grout will absorb anything, which makes it a breeding ground for fungi and bacteria.

    So besides looking pretty, the other main benefit of cleaning your grout and tile is your health. When your home is clean, you have less of a chance of being sick. If there are bacteria floating around, you’re likely to pick up the germs.

    If you dropped a piece of food on the kitchen floor and ate it or touched the floor with your hand and then rubbed your eyes, you just spread a lot of potential germs to your body. You could get a bacterial or fungal infection if you haven’t properly cleaned the floor.

    Whether it’s the floor or counter, your grout lines and tiles are flat, which means lots of things can land on them including dust. You may not see the dust, but it can make you have allergies if there is too much built up in your home. Dust build up on tile and grout can keep bacteria on surfaces. Dust also invites dust miles, which excrete allergens that can irritate you.

    In wetter areas of your home, like the bathroom, grout and tile can harbor mold and mildew, which can cause your body to have an allergic reaction. When it comes to mold and mildew, you should turn a fan on, open a window, and doors to air the room out after a bath or shower. Try to dry the room out as often as you can in between cleanings. Make sure your house isn’t overly humid, as well.

    To avoid health problems in your own home, clean your tile and grout regularly. Grout Shield’s Maintenance Cleaner cleans stains and dirt off tile and grout. This cleaner has a neutral pH, so it isn’t harsh on your tiles or grout. This cleaner will keep your tile and grout renewed-looking and clean. To prevent allergens, fungi, and bacteria from  lingering on your floors, use Grout Shield’s  grout sealer to protect your grout and tile.

    Grout Shield’s products can help your tile and grout look like new again while eliminating the bad stuff that can cause you and your loved ones to get sick.

  • Keep Your Grout Clean for the Kids

    Kids make messes – it’s what they do! However, if we ignore these messes, they can breed germs and bacteria, especially if the messes get into the tile and grout. If you have a baby or toddler at home, you know they love to crawl, sit on the floor, and put anything in their mouth that fell on the floor (like a pacifier). With children around, it’s essential you make sure your grout and tile are clean year-round, so your little one isn’t picking up germs.

    Grout is porous, so it absorbs basically everything it encounters. Grout is a good breeding ground for bacteria and fungi. When your child spills a drink or drops food or even if you’re walking through the house with shoes on, you’re spreading germs. Salmonella, listeria, and E.coli can easily spread in the kitchen or bathroom from foot traffic or spills. A 2014 study by Aston University in England revealed that bacteria transfers on dropped food from tile surfaces.

    The more (and better) you clean your tile and grout, the less bacteria there will be to spread.

    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 and is a great product to use if your floors haven’t received a good cleaning in a while. You will see your grout changing back to its original color. Throughout the rest of 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 stains from your kid’s sippy cup 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.

    If your grout and tile are clean, you will feel a lot better about your little one crawling, playing and putting things in his/her mouth off the floor.

    Grout shield also sells grout brushes and chamois cloths that help easily remove dirt and debris from the grout without wrecking it.

    Grout Shield’s grout cleaners and grout sealers can help your floors (and kids) stay clean! For more information on Grout Shield products, click our grout products page, or call toll free at 1-800-631-0716.

  • 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.

  • Grout Problems and How to Fix Them

    Grout can make or break the look of room in your home. Dirty grout can make a clean room look dirty and a new room look old. You can scrub for hours and grout can still look dirty – grout is a funny thing like that. Grout is porous, which means once it absorbs all kinds of filth, it can be hard to get that filth out. Regular household cleaners don’t work well when cleaning grout, and many harsh chemicals can wreck and break the grout.

    As a grout products company we wanted to share with you some common problems with grout, and what you can do about it to fix it, because grout is everywhere, so you must learn how to properly care for it!

    • Grout is porous. It absorbs anything that it encounters from dirt and mud to food and water.
    • Grout is hard to clean because it sits lower than the tile surrounding it.
    • Grout will darken over time if not properly cleaned and/or sealed.
    • Grout is hard to clean.
    • Epoxy is the easiest grout to clean because it is the least porous grout.
    • Mopping can potentially stain your grout.
    • Mops can leave bacteria in your grout.
    • Grout is a breeding ground for bacteria.
    • Grout can easily be wrecked by steel wool, coarse brushes, acidic cleaners, and bleach.

Grout Shield created special grout cleaners that break up tough stains and lift them out of the pores. The Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner cleans stains in the grout, and it is perfect to use regularly to keep your grout clean year-round. Grout Shield Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner is great at lifting deep stains, especially if you haven’t properly cleaned your tile in a while.
