Stone, Tile & Grout Cleaning Tips from Our Pros

Tile floors last just as long as hardwood floors do and come in more colors and styles. You might opt for a mosaic design in your shower, use neutral colors in your kitchen backsplash and bring in some brighter tiles in your entryway. No matter what type of tiles you have, you need to know how to properly clean those walls and floors. While local tile and grout cleaners can make your tiled floors look new again, you may want to attempt cleaning those surfaces yourself.

Remove Stains

Tile floors can pick up stains when you drop food, your pet has an accident or your kids decide to go wild with their paints or crayons. A simple product you can use to remove those stains is baking soda. Drop a tablespoon of baking soda on the stain, add just enough water to form a paste and carefully rub the mixture into the stain before rinsing with cold water. Though you can use bleach or chemicals, you’ll always want to make sure that the liquid doesn’t discolor your tile or eat through the surface of the tile first.

Tackle Grout

Are you looking for some easy grout cleaning tips that you can use to restore the dingy look of your grout? Simply fill a spray bottle with an equal amount of water and distilled white vinegar. Spray the mixture on the grout, wait at least five minutes and then scrub with a brush. Use ordinary water in a spray bottle to rinse off the vinegar.

Let Others Do the Work

After checking out some grout cleaning tips, you might think about hiring a professional company that offers tile cleaning services. The benefits of professional cleaning include:

•  Reducing stress on your body from cleaning
•  Removal of all types of stains from both tile and grout
•  Restoration of grout that looks faded or dingy

Let local tile and grout cleaners do all that cleaning for you.
