Use The Right Type Of Cleaner 

Acidic cleaners can do some serious damage to the look and durability of your tile and grout surfaces. All tiles provide a beautiful shine, color, and overall look that could be going to waste while you think you’re actually trying to preserve it. Many generic cleaners contain some sort of acidic element so you’ll want to check the bottle before you buy.

It’s a very easy to use product where you just have to spray and wipe to maintain that great shine. There is also MARBLELIFE’s Tile & Grout Floor Cleaner for the bigger jobs. We recommend choosing our professional products, however if not, be sure that you’re not damaging your tile and grout unsuspectingly.


Cleaning The Grout

When specifically targeting the grout, spray your cleaner into the joints and scrub with a soft bristle brush, then wipe away dirty suds with a clean towel or rag. Use a wallpaper brush or a toothbrush for the smaller corners and details. If you notice that your grout is appearing to be too dirty for a simple cleaner, then use MARBLELIFE’s MaxOut Grout Cleaner.


With MaxOut Cleaner, follow the same process and continue doing so until you see the results you need. Follow the process by cleaning with Tile & Grout Cleaner to get rid of remaining dirt on the tile.

You just have to let a small puddle form on the grout and allow to sit for several minutes and then wipe the excess off.
