Why Does Your Tile and Grout Floor Become so Easily Stained?

Tile CleaningIf you have tile in your home, you may wonder why the grout gets so dirty and is so difficult to clean. Grout can be beautiful even though it is necessary to fill in the spaces and hold tile pieces together. But grout is porous and will absorb bacteria of many kinds making it easily and quickly unattractive. To make matters worse, some liquid substances can penetrate deep within the grout causing it to look discolored.

Amazingly, one of the most common causes of discolored grout is dirty mop water. When your cleaning water becomes dirty, the dirt from the tile will just spread and “seep” into your grout. Since the grout is the lowest part of the floor, the dirt and grime from your dirty mop water can settle into the grout. This can be frustrating that right after you clean your tile and grout floor, it will look dirty and  will be a source of bacteria, mold, allergens, and mildew.

Once grout is stained, it can be hard to remove the stains. It is important to ask your tile manufacture the proper way to keep your tile and grout clean between professional cleanings. And it may be time to have a professional tile and grout cleaning to effectively extract the dirt and grime from your tile floors. Once professionally cleaned, we can apply a color seal to your grout to help reduce the amount of dirt that penetrates into the grout. The sealer will help you retain the original look and color of your grout between professional cleanings.

Your tile floors are a beautiful investment in your home and they receive a lot of foot traffic. Every time someone walks over your tile floor, they are transferring dirt and germs onto your floor.
