Got Grout? 4 Tips for Keeping Bathroom and Kitchen Grout Clean

Last updated 6 years ago

A clean house is a nice house. Clean ceramic tile can brighten and open up a room at the same time. If you perfectly maintain your home, right down to the tile and grout details, then you can rest assured that it won’t go unnoticed.

Keep your bathroom and kitchen tile and grout looking flawless with these quick tips:

  • Basic Maintenance: Maintain beautiful tiling in your home by keeping it dry. Moisture can cause mold, mildew, and dark stains in the grout and on the tiling. This is certainly more difficult to accomplish in the bathroom and in the shower; but simply closing shower curtains and briefly wiping down walls after daily showers will preserve your tiling for a long time.
  • Soap Scum: From time to time, make an effort to remove the soap scum from your bathroom tile and grout patterns. Several types of simple homemade solutions can be created to treat the problem: Cleaning detergent can be made from hot water, water softener, and rottenstone. 

  • Sweeping and Mopping: Whether you have ceramic, stone, or porcelain tiling, thoroughly clean your flooring weekly to prevent damage from scuffing and scratching.  Using a soft-bristled broom, sweep dust and debris off of your floor before washing it down via a thorough mopping.  Be wary with cleaning solutions—you could unintentionally damage your floor if you use harsh chemicals. 
  • Hire the Professionals: For stubborn stains in old flooring, make sure you hire the specialists.  They can remove any stains or mold that you can’t.
