Tile and Grout Cleaning are Important

Tile Cleaning Perth can be an added expense but it’s worth the effort to make sure your home looks as good as you’d like. It’s often the last thing people think about when they first start a house-restoration project, but with the right care, there’s no reason not to clean the grout and tile.

It’s an inexpensive way to do a thorough cleanup. When I first started restoring my own home, my grout was also in bad shape. The owner had been doing regular tile and grout cleaning for years and I knew she wouldn’t go through the trouble of repairing the cracks and stains.

She’d got some grout and tile cleaners and was using them to scrub down her floors, but they weren’t doing the job as well as she thought they should. I volunteered to help her so that she wouldn’t have to go through the hassle of cleaning them anymore.

Since we don’t have kids, I know she could take care of all the kids’ stuff at home without having to spend a dime on a grout and tile cleaner. But we needed to do a thorough cleaning of the grout and tiles to restore them to their original shine. Here’s how she used the cleaner:

She took a pad and wiped the floor down with it, then moved to the next section and took her special step. She used a broom to cover the whole floor to get all the dust off. After that, she used the grout cleaner to get rid of the remaining grout. After that, she used the same soap to wash the tile.

She covered the entire large area in the grout, leaving enough room to wet tile before she put it back on. The idea is to keep a large area of grout clear so that she doesn’t need to worry about removing dirt and molds from the rest of the floor.

Once she was finished, she washed her floor and tried to look at it. That didn’t work. So she called me in to see if I knew of anything that would get the dirt and molds out of the grout.

After my research, she found that by running hot water on the stones tiles, she could help get it clean again. There was also an idea she’d seen on TV about using dry heat, which I knew about but hadn’t tried myself.

I looked into the idea of covering the small area with plastic and got a suggestion from her. She’d noticed that there were tiny bubbles on the tiles but didn’t want to tackle that problem just yet. I explained how using a vacuum and warm water to remove grout can help get it clean quickly.

Once I explained the procedure to her, she followed it with great enthusiasm. After she was done, I spent a few minutes explaining how I cleaned her old grout and what to do with the new grout.

With this entire project completed, she was happy to have the maintenance tasks taken care of. Not only did we get the grout cleaned, but we also made sure that all the tiles and grout were clean as well.
