Tiling whether it be in your bathroom or kitchen acts as the perfect finishing touch tying in your colour scheme and décor. However, have you ever wondered why your tile grout gets so dirty and what you can do to keep it looking pristine?

What exactly is tile grout?

Grout is the name of the material that is applied between tiles in order to hold them together and fill up the spaces. Because of its rough porous nature, it does unfortunately mean that dirt and grit is easily attracted to it. What’s more, liquids can also penetrate deep into the grout which causes discolouring, and this is often evident in kitchen floor tiling.

One of the most common causes for floor tiling becoming discoloured is the use of a mop. Instead of cleaning the tiles, the mop instead spreads the dirt from the tiles into the grout. As the grout is the lower part of the floor, the debris from the mop water settles into the grout. This is really infuriating because no matter how hard you try to keep your floor sparkling clean it remains dirty looking. Besides this, dirty grout harbours mildew, bacteria, and mould.

How to make your tile grout look like new once more

Once your grout has become stained it’s very hard to restore it to the original colour. As such it’s important to apply the correct cleaning methods when trying to clean grout.
