  • Cleaning Grout Safely

    Date: 2014.07.16 | Category: Bathrooms, Kitchens, Tips and Advice | Response: 0

    We all have come across dirty, stained and sometimes even have mold on our grout.  There are many ways to clean your grout, however some every day house hold cleaning products are too rough and can damage what  you have in place.  You can try using a simple at home application of hot water and dawn dish soap.

    •  The first thing to start with is a deep soak.
    • Make a bucket of very hot water adding dawn dish soap.
    • Apply that on a small area and let sit for about 20 minutes.
    • The dawn soap should start to pull the dirt out of the grout.
    • Use soft clean towels to soak up the water.
    •  If there is still dirt on the grout, use a soft nylon brush and in a circular motion lightly scrub at the dirt.

    After trying this and your grout is not getting clean we suggest you using a commercial grade solution made just for cleaning grout surfaces.  Aqua Mix is a great brand that has many different solutions to help in the care and maintenance of your grout.
