What is grout?
Grout is a mixture of water, cement, and sand that is used to work as a bond, to adhere, tiles in a uniform order to the ground or on a service. This grout material is often a light color and dries in a spongey, soft, texture that can easily become stained. You typically see an even spacing of grout between tiles wherever they are laid. If you have tile and grout floors or services in your home that need to be deeply cleaned, the professionals at Modern Stone Care in Houston can help you.
Why Does Grout Get So Dirty?
Tile and grout floors, while a popular choice in many homes and businesses, can easily appear tarnished and outdated. This is because grout lines are difficult to clean and oftentimes can become stained to an extent that may seem impossible to reverse. Dingey grout lines are not only unattractive to look at, they’re unclean and can actually lead to damage to your flooring. Many people wonder why their grout lines are so dirty, whenever they sweep and mop their floors and surface regularly. The issue is with the way the grout lays lower than the height of the tiles. When cleaning these surfaces, dirt and grime often are pushed into the grout lines and left behind in the cleaning process.
A common misconception about impacted grout lines is that the only way to get rid of the dark set in stains is to redo your tile floors and surfaces, or to paint over the blackened grout with a lighter color. Neither of these options are particularly good solutions because relaying your tile floors is an expensive and time-consuming process, while painting over blackened, grout lines are just leaving the dirt and grime below the surface. The second option can result in mold and rarely leaves your floors looking top quality. Not to mention whenever the paint starts to come up, which it eventually will, you will begin to see dirty spots peeking through. The best option for dirty grout lines is having them professionally cleaned and restored. You do not have to live with these unsightly dark lines of neglect, or redo your flooring!
