How to Clean Your Tile & Grout at Home

By: bchauveau Sunday February 5, 2023 comments

Cleaning tile and grout can be a tedious task, but it's essential to keep them looking their best and prevent the buildup of bacteria and mold. Here are some steps to follow for cleaning your tile and grout at home:

  1. Sweep or vacuum the area to remove any loose dirt and debris.

  2. Mix a cleaning solution using equal parts of water and vinegar or a commercial tile and grout cleaner. Apply the solution to the tiles and grout lines and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.

  3. Scrub the tiles and grout with a stiff-bristled brush, paying special attention to any heavily stained areas. You may need to use a smaller brush or toothbrush for hard-to-reach spots.

  4. Rinse the tiles and grout thoroughly with clean water to remove any remaining cleaning solution.

  5. Dry the tiles and grout with a clean towel or allow them to air dry.

If you have particularly tough stains or grime buildup on your grout, you may need to use a steam cleaner or hire a professional cleaning service to deep clean your tile and grout.

To keep your tile and grout looking their best, consider sealing the grout lines every year or so to prevent stains and bacteria from penetrating the porous material.
