Do you have tile floors or countertops? If so, then you know how they can really bring out the look in your home or can do the opposite. The grout between your tiles collects dirt and can stain, deteriorating your surface look overall. There are multiple methods that people employ to upkeep these surfaces, but only one is the best option and backed by the professionals.
Get The Right Cleaner
The right materials often determine the success of the job. The same concept applies for your tile and grout! Many will use a generic tile and grout cleaner that has acidic components. Acid can damage the color and durability of your grout, plus they don’t do a very great job. So, first you want to get your hands on a quality cleaner.
We suggest MARBLELIFE’s Tile & Grout Cleaner and MaxOut Grout Cleaner. They both are acid-free, easy to use, and have shown consistent success over time.
Clean Your Grout
Cleaning your grout is simple as long as you have the right materials. With MaxOut cleaner, all you have to do is apply the cleaner to the grout and brush with a hard bristle (toothbrush, wallpaper brush, long handle floor brush). As you brush the suds will get dirtier, that means it’s doing its job by getting the dirt out!
Once you’ve brushed a good amount of dirt out, wipe away the remaining suds with a clean towel. After wiping away the remains, spray Tile & Grout Cleaner to remove any remaining MaxOut.
Pro tip: for large areas, apply MaxOut and use the edge of a long handle floor brush. You won’t have to be on your knees and it’s faster. You shouldn’t push hard, since you just want the tips of the bristles. After, mop off the suds and apply Tile & Grout Cleaner.
Sealing Your Grout
If you want to seal your grout so that the pores are more closed and less prone to staining and hoarding dirt, then first clean your grout as previously directed. Afterwards, spray Tile & Grout cleaner in the grout a second time and brush. Your pores will be nice and open, prepped for the sealing.
If you use MARBLELIFE’s Grout Sealer, all you’ll have to do is apply and let it soak for a couple minutes. Then, simply wipe off any sealer that has made it’s way onto the tile. That’s it! The sealer should have soaked into the grout pores and will leave you with cleaner surfaces for a longer time period.
If you want to clean and seal your grout properly, make sure you employ this method. It’s the easiest and most successful technique that you can apply. MARBLELIFE’s professionals have years of experience and research, so they want you to be able to enjoy a superior clean at an affordable price.
