We don’t know about you, but grout makes us grouchy! Having dirty grout in between your tiles is not only unsightly, but can contain dangerous molds and bacterias. No matter how sparkly clean you keep your tiles, the spongy material of the grout is an easy absorbing material for grime to grow.
Grout is the sealant between your tiles that holds them together and helps them be laid down in a pattern. You can find this grout in your bathroom, on your kitchen counter, on the tiles of your floors, in your mudroom, and various other tiled surfaces in your home. Each room that has tiles and grout attracts its own cleaning difficulties.
In your bathroom, especially if you have tiles in your shower or bathing area, you are guaranteed to get dirty grout that needs to be cleaned. Shampoos, conditioners, body washes, and other products all contribute to the grit and grime that discolors and pollutes your grout. When these materials get trapped in the grout, they can cause dangerous molds and bacteria to grow. Oftentimes, this causes a foul smelling odor. It also discolors the grout and makes it a darker color that is different than the natural grout color, making it appear as dirty as it really is.
In places like the bathroom, where the goal is become clean, having dirt trapped in your cleaning sanctuary is a bit of an oxymoron. Similarly, if you gave tiles and grout in your kitchen, it is likely that they will quickly become dirty. Residue from foods, as well as various liquids, from water, to wine, to oil, can get trapped in the grout. Grout is absorbent, and liquids will quickly become absorbed in the grout and seep deeply into the material.
If you have dirty grout in your kitchen and you don’t have it cleaned up and taken care of by a cleaning professional, the grout may begin to sprout and grow bacteria and molds. Preparing and serving foods in an area where mold and bacteria is present is dangerous and not a good idea.
Mudrooms attract mud, dirt, and water. When they are tracked into a tiled mudroom, the mud can stain the grout and turn it a dark brown color that does not match the rest of the grout in between the tiles. This makes for an awkward and distracting discoloration.
While you can use various cleaning products and brushes to attempt and scrub grout clean, you may only be getting the surface and not really attacking the problem. Because grout is absorbent, liquids and molds can seep far into the grout and not be reached with average brushes. Sometimes, over the counter cleaning products may not be strong enough to penetrate the grout deeply enough to fully clean them.
