Ceramic tile and stone are not only beautiful and easy to clean but also hypoallergenic. However, after repeated cleaning and use, grout cleaning can be a nightmare. Nothing can spoil the look of a beautiful kitchen or a custom shower quicker than dirty grout.
Dirty grout is one of many things that looks as nasty as it really is. Over time, dirt, bacteria, and grime build up around the edges of your tile. This gritty mess usually becomes sandwiched between layers of soap scum and cleaning residue.
The issue is that grout, unlike the tile it surrounds, is extremely porous. People attempt to clean grout the same way the clean kitchen tile, using cleaning chemicals like Tilex. Like many other frustrated home makers, you’ve probably notice that this tends to make things worse. The reason that this method doesn’t work is because you are trying to remove soap by using more soap.
What does work for grout cleaning? We do. Call professional grout cleaners and save yourself the hassle. If you are bound and determined to invest your hard earned elbow grease into removing grout instead if enjoying a day at the park, the following tips may help to make your life easier.
Tip number 1: Use OXYCLEAN. Oxyclean is not chemically similar to the cleaners that most people use on tile and grout. There is a good chance that Qxyclean will help make your job go a heck of a lot quicker by helping to break down the soap scum glue that is bonding filth to your grout.
Tip number 2: Buy a Dremel Tool. Dremel is a hand-held device with a rotating head that is suitable for various cleaning activities around the house. Using a nonabrasive dermal attachment apply a generous portion of Oxyclean to your tile and let the Dremel tool be a force multiplier for your elbow grease.
Make sure to use safety goggles and to shield sensitive areas near your cleaning site. Any time you are using a power tool, you should take precautions to protect yourself and your surroundings.
