Tiled floors and walls are a classic interior element in many bathrooms and kitchens across the country. And what is tile’s trusty sidekick? That’s right, grout. This is because the last step of any tile installation is filling in the gaps with grout. It is essentially a cement solution and is used to waterproof the tile’s surfaces, prevent mold from forming under them, and keep the tiles in place.
Unfortunately, grout tends to accumulate grime rather quickly, causing stains and discoloration. As necessary as grout is, it does therefore require a bit of maintenance to keep your bathroom or kitchen flooring shiny. Fortunately, there are many solutions to help homeowners prevent grout discoloration and staining. While there is no one best way to clean grout there certainly are some steps you can take to prevent discoloration and damage as much as possible.
