The grout between your floor and wall tiles can get really grimy and tough to get back to its once sparkling state. When doing grout cleaning in Tampa, Florida, there is a lot of humidity and rainfall especially in the summer months, grout can also be subject to moisture and more mildew than other locations. But with the right cleaning technique and solution you can get your grout sparkling and fresh once again!
Depending on the amount of built up grime and and dirt, a simple and less acidic cleaning solution should be effective in cleaning the grout. Grout stains can be more severe due to foot traffic, food stains, and mildew. For some stains a basic cleaning agent like vinegar or baking soda could work for cleaning the grout. Tougher build ups of grime and mildew may need commercial cleaning or harsher chemicals to remove the grime.
For basic cleaning solutions, equal parts vinegar and water can be sprayed on a small length of the grout. Scrub the grout with a stiff brush in circles and rinse well with water. Using household cleaners like Lysol or Mr. Clean can also clean the grout well. For household cleaners, they can also be sprayed on a small section of the grout and stubbed with a stiff brush then rinsed with water for great results.
