Cleaning tile floors by hand is a lot of hard work. It takes a lot of time, it is messy, and it is impossible to get professional results when you clean your tile and grout yourself.

Grout is porous and it collects dirt and stains. Regular mopping will never reach this dirt and grime. Groutsmith Salt Lake City’s professional tile and grout cleaning service can clean out the hidden dirt and restore the look of your tile and grout.

Tips for cleaning Tile and Grout:

  • Always vacuum and/or sweep before mopping. This helps eliminate as much dry soil as possible and helps preserve your grout color.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals to clean your tile and grout. These chemicals can break down your grout and sealants.

Grout Cleaning

December 31, 2021

Did you know much of grout is cement-based? This means grout is porous and needs to be sealed to keep it from absorbing moisture, dirt, and stains. Even properly sealed grout will get dirty and stained over time when the sealant wears down. The grout will then get dirty, lose its strength and begin to crack and crumble. The trapped moisture can also cause the growth of black mold, which can pose a serious health risk to your family. How to Keep Grout Clean Now that you know the importance of keeping your grout clean, how do you do it? The first step is to make sure your grout is cleaned on a regular basis. Grout that hasn’t been cleaned for a long time can be hard to clean. A popular DIY method is using bleach to clean grout. Bleach has the power to whiten, which makes it an obvious choice, but what if you have colored grout? Because it has strong whitening capabilities, bleach can very quickly change the color of your grout. That means that while bleach may be an option for cleaning your grout, it could lead to altering the grout to the point that you will eventually need to replace it. Another popular DIY method to clean grout is a 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. The acidity in vinegar is what makes it good for cleaning grout, but acidic products can damage the protective coating on your grout. This lets your grout take on more dirt and stains. Groutsmith Salt Lake City technicians can restore grout that is really dirty and has been neglected for many years. We use specialized cleaners to keep your grout looking better longer, and we don’t damage the color of your grout.
