Are you a home owner and are looking to revitalize your once sparkling shine on your tiles? Better still, are you selling your house or renting out an apartment and are looking to impress your potential tenant? Dirty surfaces can be a big turn off for sure, especially in the bathroom, kitchen, bath tubs, backsplashes as well as sinks. Tile patterns are highly preferred due to their resilience to stains and high moisture exposure. The grout that holds them together further enhances their appearance.
What is grout?
Grout is a porous dense fluid holding your bathroom, kitchen or floor tiles together. It is a highly susceptible substance that collects grime over time if not well cleaned. We have to agree that a daily, if not a weekly clean can be challenging to keep up, especially due to busy work schedules. Moreover, our cleaning may not necessarily be focused on the tile grout, which attracts and stores a lot of the dirt and left over detergent. With time, this accumulated grime clogs the grout appearing as a discolored substance. Most of us have resorted to using toothbrushes in attempts to scrub off the grime, with not much luck.
DIY Tile and grout cleaning can be time consuming, costly and ineffective, especially if the wrong tools and methods are used.
