Why Should I Clean and Seal My Tile Grout?
What is the purpose of grout? Grout is a variety of mortar that is utilized to fill in the gaps between tiles on floors patios, walls, or countertops. Stone or ceramic is a strong material that takes on a lot of heavy use; nevertheless, grout’s irregular surface is ideal at trapping all the grime and dirt that naturally gathers between the tiles. After a couple of years, your tile will probably look as good as the day it was installed, but your grout tells a different story. Get your grimy, tarnished grout cleaned and sealed professionally in order to:
- Get rid of mildew and mold
- Deep clean debris, dirt, and old detergent residues trapped in between tile spaces
- Prevention of further fading and staining
- Restore its waterproofing qualities.
Doing so will keep your tile in great shape in the coming years.
While repairing damaged grout can seem like a tedious task, there are many tools and companies equipped to bring your flooring back to life. First, homeowners must understand the many types of grout used for tiles. The two major forms that grout comes in are sanded and unsanded. Smaller spaces between tile generally require unsanded grout, with larger areas calling for the sanded version. Before beginning any cleanup or repairs, make sure you know the type of grout used in your flooring, and measure the areas between the tiles for an accurate pour.
Repairing Grout Cracks
Filling these cracks will make your tile flooring look like it was newly installed. Don’t stress out about any cracks, by the way, as this material will require some minor repairs over time. The first step towards repairing any areas would be to mix the new grout in a small bowl or other container. Check for manufacturer’s instructions before going forward with this task, though. Next, spread the newly mixed group evenly over the desired areas. Do this in several different patterns, ensuring that you have completely covered the old grout with a smooth, new layering. Scrape any excess grout off the tiles as soon as possible, so that it does not stick anywhere other than where you meant to lay this material. Lastly, let the grout sit and dry for several minutes.
Step-by-step instructions for repairing grout cracks:
- Mix new grout in a small bowl or container with water.
- Spread the new grout in the desired areas, evenly.
- Clear out any excess grout as quickly as possible.
- Let the new grout sit and dry for several minutes.
If no repairs are needed, but you’d still like to treat your grout to keep it in the best possible shape, there are many ways to clean the material. Simply brushing the grout with a tool like a toothbrush and hot water will help preserve the grout. A more effective way to clean the grout, though, is by spraying the material with warm water and vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, then brush the grout. Using a small amount of chlorine bleach can work, as well. Be careful with the bleach, though, as you do not want to overdo it with this substance, for obvious reasons.
Quick ways to clean grout:
- Use warm water and brush the grout with a small tool.
- Spray water/vinegar mix onto grout, then scrub.
- Use a small amount of chlorine bleach on the material.
- Clean the areas with a steam mop.
