Grout Cleaning Methods
Tiled areas can be probably the most beautiful areas in your home. But they may Steam ‘n’ Dry Tile & Grout Cleaning Auckland have eight simple tips to clean your tiled areas and keep them looking like they’re brand new.
Clean and maintain your tiles regularly.
Kitchen tiled areas should be washed no less than 2-3 times per week. If they aren’t, food and other dirt particles will, in a short time, build up in the grout. A swift wipe down will do the job; make sure you do it every day. Shower, as well as bath tiles, need a 1-2 times per week grout cleaning. P against any build-up of dirt, soap scum, and mildew.
Tile grout floor areas
Use a one to one ratio of vinegar/water solution with about 2- 3 tablespoons of baking soda per quart of water. Spray it on and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes, then scrub it with a grout brush (or old toothbrush). After that, rinse with water and dry thoroughly. The vinegar will break down the dirt along with other grime that is in the grout cleaning. You can make some more heavy-duty cleaner by adding 2 or 3 tablespoons of baking soda to the mixture.
Use tools such as a scraper to first remove clean from tiles
or a heavy-duty grout brush for hard to reach areas like around the bath and sink fixtures. Initially, wet the whole tile cleaning area down, wait for a few minutes, and then the last scrub the grout clean. Rinse thoroughly and then dry by using an old towel. In case you would like a little extra power for the small crevices, you can use soap or baking soda on the toothbrush.
Never use hard chemicals to clean grout
Harsh chemicals eat away at the grout, and Tile is doing damage to it over time. Just use mild solutions (such as one to one vinegar, lemon juice solutions, and plain water) or commercial grout cleaners.

The front door. And in front of the sink in the kitchen benefit from an extra layer of protection. Having a mat in the way dirt cannot as quickly make its way into the grout. But make sure you clean the rugs regularly.
