Grout is found in numerous areas within homes. It also comes in many varieties and colours. Keeping grout clean is a big challenge as it is primarily used in high-traffic areas and gets dirty quickly. An effective grout cleaner can make all the difference and remove grime and mildew fast.
High Traffic Areas of the Home
In recent years, rising property prices have meant more homeowners are looking to improve what they already own. This also applies to areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and showers. The trend for many proud homeowners is to make these areas look highly presentable by having high-quality tiling laid.
The tiling can take on many forms and includes ceramic, porcelain, marble, slate and travertine. To accentuate the look of these areas, various grout types are used. such as cement-based, sanded, caulking and epoxy. It also comes in many different colours to match and enhance the look of the tiles it is being used with. This can help create stunning looking walls and floors in bathrooms, kitchens and showers.
Keeping Grout Clean
Keeping grout clean is the big challenge. The number of customers looking for a grout cleaner for floor or shower tiles has been increasing steadily each year. To help with this issue, some of the more expensive grouting compounds are formulated with Microban, which has an anti-bacterial component. Although this formulation can make cleaning grout easier, the use of a decent grout cleaner is usually necessary at some point.
Most existing grout types at the cheaper end of the market do not provide much water resistance or have any anti-bacterial component. This can result in the grout getting dirty very quickly as they will absorb water and dirt particles making it look quite unsightly.
The growth and spread of mildew and mould is another issue. In showers and bathrooms with high levels of condensation, these growths can be a serious issue. They should be treated with a mould and mildew remover if any appear on grouted areas of tiling. At Stonecare4u we have a specialist mould remover called Essential Mould Remover, which can quickly remove this health hazard. The product comes in a sprayable bottle and will help to prevent their growth and spread. The Essential Mould Remover can also be used as a grout cleaner for shower or bathroom tiles generally.
A Visual Transformation
The transformation from old dirty grout into new clean grout can be amazing. We also have products that can quickly clean grout on tiles in showers and bathrooms. Essential Grout Haze Cleaner will quickly clean any mortar and cement residue as well as calcium deposits from floor and wall tiles.
The majority of new or refurbished homes are created with a contemporary style in mind. Expensive floor and wall tiles are often incorporated in these designs. Moreover, a lot of thought is given to the type of tiles to be used. However, there is little emphasis on the jointing material. Once laid most forms of stone tiles or slates are relatively easy to keep clean. On the other hand, when it comes to the pointing, things are not so simple. Obviously, we all want our home to look and feel clean. But the visual appeal of stunning tiles can be diminished by dirty, stained pointing.
The Importance of Hygiene
Pointing, also called Grout, is naturally porous. Therefore, even in the cleanest home, it will suffer from dirt and spillages becoming ingrained into it. For example, floor areas that see a lot of foot traffic are always going to be more difficult to keep clean. Furthermore, hygiene is very important around areas where food is prepared. Therefore, it is essential to use a grout cleaner on a regular basis.
Overall, what can we do to protect the grout and restore its original finish? Once clean, you can apply a protective sealer. Sealing will reduce the number of particles and liquids being absorbed into the joints. This will make cleaning far easier with water and a mild detergent. Stonecare4u supply two types of sealer in a liquid or aerosol form. Both of these products provide a high level of protection and are easy to apply. Essential Tile and Grout Sealer Spray is our most popular product as it is very quick and easy to apply.
Why Cleaning Grout is Essential
Cleaning grout is necessary whether the joints have been sealed or not. So, it is always advisable to clean any spillages straight away. Once they have been absorbed into the grout, they can prove quite stubborn to remove, regardless of cleaning material used. Another tip would be to pay particular attention in your bathroom or shower to the types of products you are using. For example, many brands of shampoo contain colourants and dyes. If these are not properly rinsed away after use, over time they will start to discolour the grouting.
Stonecare4u grout cleaning products are specially formulated to clean grout effectively, without damaging the joints.
If your grout has reached a condition where it cannot be properly cleaned, there are now alternatives to the expensive and time-consuming process of removing the jointing material and starting again. Historically most grout lines were white or ivory: the worst possible colours to try and keep clean! Today, many colours have become available and fashionable. This creates an easy opportunity to transform old and tired joints with a trendy shade of grey, brown or black.
