When tiling a bathroom, kitchen, or other room in your room, a substance called grout is used to go between the tiles to hold them together and to seal the cracks between the tiles. There are situations when grout does not have to be used. Mosaics don’t always have to have grout between them as well as some tiling on walls. Grout is easy to use and easy to clean as well. How to clean grout is as easy as cleaning a floor in general.
There are no special tools to use and you don’t have to clean every day. Grout is nothing more than water and cement that hardens over time and sets. It needs to be smoothed when it is wet so it will not dry jagged. A wet sponge can be used to go over the tiling after the grout has had time to dry. This will make the tiles shiny again and will remove the excess grout left over. Over time and wear on the grout surface, it will become dirty again and needs to be cleaned. General cleaning will usually keep grout tiled surfaces clean but a good scrubbing is needed every so often.
In the bathroom shower mildew can set up on the grout surface. A simple way to clean is with baking soda and water or vinegar. Use a sponge and scrub the mixture of the surface and rinse with water. Tile in the kitchen can collect food particles and dirt from every day wear and tear. The same mix of baking soda or vinegar can be used but should be rinsed off well if food is prepared on the tile surface. If there is a grout surface on the floor a mop can be used to clean the flooring. Vinegar and baking soda is the most inexpensive and works as well as other cleaners but there are other options if you don’t want to use the vinegar.
There are cleaners that can be used such as 409 and Lysol.
