Just like your home or business, the pool you own needs some TLC too. Pools go through a lot, especially if it’s an outdoor pool. Pools are exposed to sun, rain, snow, food, animal droppings, urine, dirt, leaves, branches, people’s skin, etc. It’s not only important to clean the pool’s water it’s important to clean the pool’s tile and grout lines. If you don’t, your pool will look dirty and old no matter how good you clean the water.
A dirty pool isn’t appealing for guests or friends to use. You want people to feel like they’re in a paradise oasis, not cesspool.
The grout lines in pool can get just as dirty as the grout you find in a bathroom or kitchen inside your business or home. Did you know a lot can grow on pool grout? Grout is porous, so it absorbs things that meet it. On pool grout, algae, mold, dirt, and stains can form from moisture and liquids that have collected from rainwater, pool water, and other outdoor elements.
When not properly cared for, a pool’s grout lines can go from bright, beautiful colors to dingy, dull lines. Even if you “clean” the area, it can look like you’ve never cleaned if you aren’t using the proper grout cleaner and grout sealer.
You want to invest in quality grout cleaning products that can clean and seal your grout, so you can keep the business or home pool looking clean and new all year round. Many household cleaners will break your grout, whereas Grout Shield’s grout products are pH-balanced and are formulated to specifically be used on grout.
To clean the pool’s grout lines, you need to drain your pool, if any grout goes beneath the water. If you only have tile surrounding the pool, you do not need to drain the pool.
Make sure all your grout is dry. Next, sweep away any access debris or dirt that is on the surface of the tiles and grout. Use Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner to clean the area. Apply the cleaner to the grout and tile with a mop and let it saturate into the grout lines for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, towel dry the area. After the grout is dry, apply Grout Shield’s clear sealer or color sealer onto the area. A grout sealer will protect your grout for longer, making it harder to get dirty. If you want to change the color of your pool, opt for the color sealer – you can choose any color you want!
