Some Tips for Tile and Grout Cleaning in White City, SK


Whether you have tile on the back splashes in your kitchen, the countertops, the floors or all three, the topic of Tile and Grout Cleaning in White City, SK is going to come up from time to time. Even in a neat home, the grout can get a little dirty from time to time, and cleaning grout can be a little intimidating. However, with the right cleanser and some hard work, you can keep that grout looking fresh.


The place to start is to figure out where the dirt is coming from. If we're talking about a tile bathroom, it's probably mold or mildew turning the grout a darker color. Bathrooms have a lot of humidity, after the steam in your shower condenses. If it's kitchen tile, it could be mildew too, but it is more likely to be leftover drippings from food or just the wear and tear of having people come through the kitchen. Either way, you should start with cleansers that are only minimally acidic. Common ideas include baking soda, in a paste with water, or a solution that is half vinegar and half water. Just spray the cleaner onto the stain and scrub straight up and down, and then come behind with a sponge to pick up any extra moisture.


But what if it doesn't come out? Then you can go to the store and buy a commercial tile and grout cleaning solution. Look for a pH balanced cleaner (the pH will be on the label) because too much acid will eat away the grout over time. Spray the cleaner on and wait a minute or two before cleaning it off. An oxygen bleach powder, chlorine bleach or hydrogen peroxide is the next step (if diluted properly according to the instructions on the container). If all else fails, you can bring in a professional Tile and Grout Cleaning in White City, SK to keep your tile looking pristine.
