Although the beauty of tilework design lasts for years, the surrounding grout can become quite unattractive over time. Because grout sits below the edges of the tiles, the tiny channels can easily collect unwanted grime and dirt. Bathroom tiles are especially susceptible to mold and mildew due to daily exposure to humidity. Kitchen tile countertops see lots of spills. Even the tiling in your foyer or mudroom gradually collects dirt from constant foot traffic.
If your tile grout is looking dingy, don’t lose hope—you can quickly make grout look new with the proper cleaning methods. And once grout becomes clean again, be sure to take preventative steps to make future cleanings much easier. In this guide, we’ll explore several solutions to restore your grout to its former pristine condition and we’ll also show you how to keep grout immaculate going forward.
