Tile and Grout Cleaning 101

Tile and Grout Cleaning 101

The bathroom and kitchen in your home are likely adorned in tile and grout. There are so many benefits of tile! Tile is durable, waterproof, and easy to clean--in theory. In practice, if not maintained regularly, tile and grout can be difficult to keep clean. Over time, dirt, soap scum, and hard water stains can build up on your tile and grout lines, making them look dingy and dirty.

But don't worry! With a little knowledge (and professional help), your tile and grout can be revived and look like new again.


Grout is a construction material used to fill in the joints between tiles. It is usually made of cement, sand, and water, and it can come in a variety of colors. It keeps your tiles firmly in place, as well as seals the joints between them to prevent water and dirt from getting in. That being said, grout is extremely porous, meaning moisture and dirt can get stuck in the tiny pores and be difficult to clean.


Tile is a durable, waterproof material that is often used in kitchens and bathrooms. It comes in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes and can be made from a variety of materials, including ceramic, porcelain, glass, and stone.

Why Should You Get Your Tile Grout Cleaned?

Dirty grout can cause a number of problems in your home. First and foremost, it can make your kitchen and bathroom look dirty and unkempt. In addition, it can also lead to more serious problems like mold and mildew growth. When water and dirt are allowed to build up in the pores of your grout, they create the perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. Not only is this unsightly, but it can also be dangerous for your family's health.

Mold and mildew release spores into the air, which can cause respiratory problems, allergic reactions, and other health problems. In addition, mold and mildew can also damage your tile and grout. The good news is that you can avoid all of these problems by getting your grout cleaned regularly.

Dirt and debris in your grout can cause your tiles to loosen and even come off entirely. Loose or missing tiles in your home is a problem because they can create tripping hazards. In addition, missing tiles can leave your home vulnerable to water damage. Water that seeps through the cracks and holes left by missing tiles can damage the structure of your home.

When Should You Get Your Grout Cleaned?

How often you need to get your grout cleaned depends on a number of factors, including the type of tile you have, the traffic in your home, and your cleaning habits. In general, however, you should have your grout professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months.
