6 Tips for Cleaning Tile and Grout
Nothing beats entering a bathroom or kitchen space that looks as clean and inviting as a room designed around cleanliness should be. You always want to maintain a clean and attractive environment around all your rooms. However, maintaining a truly clean bathroom and kitchen can be a daunting task for the average homeowner, especially kitchen/bathroom tile and grout. Here are easy tips and tricks for cleaning tile and grout in your home.
Clean the Bathroom/Kitchen a Little Every Day
Well, be sure to spot-clean the floor tiles, wipe off the tile backsplash and counters, and handle other small tasks that will help freshen up your kitchen or bathroom each day. You don’t have to do a thorough deep-cleaning job every day. It becomes easier to handle other cleaning tasks every other week when you do those small, twenty-second tasks.
Vacuum the Tiles
One way to prevent your tile floors from becoming dull is to vacuum them regularly. Vacuuming can help eliminate the loose debris, pet hair, and dirt from the tiles, whether on the wall or floor. Make sure you’re vacuuming regularly so you can get rid of the loose dust and dirt before it gets ground and accumulates into the floors as people walk around.
Scrub the Surfaces
It’s best that you leave your tile cleaner to sit for a about five minutes before you start swiping it. Spray the tile cleaner, spread it around and then let it fight the grime on the tiles before scrubbing it clean. Be sure to use a non-abrasive scrubbing tool to scrub the grout as it’s more porous. After scrubbing the surfaces and cleaning, remember to clean the cleaners thoroughly.
Dry all Surfaces
Sitting water always forms water spots on tiles. It’s, therefore, important that you dry the tile flooring with a clean, lint-free piece of cloth as soon as you’re done washing. Also remember that wet floors can be a safety hazard. Use color-coded dry rags to avoid cross-contaminating the different surfaces with residual surface germs.
Consider Placing Mats or Rugs in High Traffic Areas
The kitchen is one of the rooms that receive high traffic in your home. You can prevent wear and tear on your tile flooring from foot traffic by placing mats or rugs around high traffic areas. Place a mat at the entryways to prevent wear on the tiles just inside the door. You may also place another one right in front of the kitchen sink to prevent water from soaking into the tiles around that area.
Get Regular Professional Cleanings
You can never go wrong with professional tile and grout cleaning services. It’s worth the investment since they have the expertise, experience, and equipment to get rid of grime, dirt, dust, and debris that you can’t remove by sweeping and mopping. It’s super easy to schedule an appointment with a professional tile cleaning company. They use proper equipment and safe cleaning solutions that will leave your home totally clean. You’ll be thrilled at how your kitchen or bathroom will look after professional cleaning.

We had Advanced Carpet Care clean our carpets at our home in September 2019. I am very pleased with their promptness, professionalism, and overall work. Gary and his team (Tim and Brad on this occasion) are friendly and very pleasant to work with. The equipment and techniques they use are top of the line, and the price is very affordable. I recommend Advanced Carpet Care to anyone looking for carpet cleaning services in the Green Bay area. We'll be using them again in the future! Thanks again!Nathan Stymiest9/12/2019
Don't have them do your grout. They didn't go against the wall or any edge. While they were here I was going over spots that they missed.Shawna Lee6/26/2018
