How to Clean Grout

Grout is a necessary part of virtually any tile floor, but it’s also notoriously difficult to clean. In between your floor’s tiles, the grout can accumulate small particles, mold, dust, mildew, and stains. Whether you are a homeowner or a business owner looking for grout cleaning solutions, you can find what you need on the Sani-Chem online shop.

The Grout Cleaning Process

Before we discuss the products you can use to make your grout cleaning easier, let’s go over the steps you’ll need to take to get your tile floor looking beautiful once more. Cleaning grout means using specialized floor cleaners, microfiber cloths like those in our store, or investing in a steam cleaner or floor cleaning equipment.

When selecting your floorcare solution, make sure to avoid acidic cleaners. These can actually eat away at the grout in your floor, forming pits in the material and even loosening your floor tiles.

Prevention of Future Grout Stains

Typically, grout cleaning solutions like the ones you’ll find on our online store are designed to protect against future stains and repel moisture. However, you might also think about using techniques like:

  • applying rubbing alcohol to the grout, which prevents moisture accumulation
  • applying a floor sealer like our Green Option concentrate
  • applying a penetrative sealer for long-term sealing
