3 Tips for Keeping Kitchen Grout Looking Its Best
Your kitchen is one of the busiest areas in your home. This is where family members come in and out throughout the day, you cook and bake, and eat. Whether you have tiles on your floor, walls, or countertops, the grout in this living space is going to need a lot of TLC to prevent discoloration and to keep it looking amazing. Here are three tips for making that happen.
1. Use Vinegar
You can create a mixture of 50/50 water and vinegar and spray on your grout. Let the mixture sit there for a few minutes and then use a brush to scrub it. If the grout needs a lot of care, create a paste using baking soda and water and cover the grout. Then, spray the vinegar mixture over the paste. Let it sit on the grout for a few minutes before you begin scrubbing. However, make sure you do not use this method on any type of natural stone as it will damage your tiles.
2. Use Store-Bought Cleaner
Another option is to purchase a grout cleaner from a home improvement store. There are dozens of products on the market — some more effective than others — but by following the instructions on the back of the bottle, you may see a difference in your kitchen grout. Many of these products still require the use of a small brush to scrub the solution on the grout. Be mindful when scrubbing that you do not push too hard and damage your grout.
3. Hire Professional Grout Cleaners
Regardless of how much scrubbing and time you put in to keeping your tiles and grout looking great, it is vital that you hire professional grout cleaners to clean and restore the kitchen grout to its best. Professionals have the right equipment and supplies to properly remove dirt, bacteria, and other debris that is trapped in the porous material without damaging it. They can also restore the color of the grout, preventing your kitchen area from looking grimy and dingy.
If you are ready to restore the grout in your kitchen, contact The Grout Specialists and set up your appointment. You’ll be amazed at the difference restored grout will make in your kitchen area.
