Grout isn’t like other surfaces, so it shouldn’t be treated and cleaned like other surfaces. Grout should be cleaned by a specific grout cleaner. Most cleaners out there are too harsh for grout and will cause it to break or crack. Also, many cleaners likely can’t lift stains out of grout. It’s in your best interest to use a grout cleaner.

Grout Shield has a Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner and a Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner that safely cleans grout and lifts tough stains. The deep cleaner is best for old, tough stains, and if you haven’t cleaned your grout in a while, while the maintenance cleaner is best for regular cleanings.

Your grout should be cleaned by a grout cleaner, because dirty grout can make a whole room look dirtier and dirty grout isn’t sanitary. Grout can easily harbor germs and bacteria. Dirty grout makes your room appear dirtier and duller, which is why it’s important to clean grout just like anything else in your home.

After you thoroughly clean your grout, you need to properly seal it, or it will get dirty again fast. With the right grout cleaner and sealer, the grout restoration process is easy. You can spend less time cleaning grout by cleaning it the right way.

To clean your grout, first, sweep the area or floor to remove any loose dirt or crumbs or debris. Next, apply Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner. Use a mop to distribute the cleaner over the entire floor. Allow the grout cleaner to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After you scrub the dirt away with a few brushstrokes, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner.

After the grout is clean and dry, it’s a smart idea to utilize Grout Shield’s sealers to protect the grout from getting dirty, stained and germ-filled again. Grout Shield Color Sealer changes the color of the grout and seals it, while Grout Shield Clear Seal seals the grout with a clear seal, so you can keep the current color of your grout.
