Why Should You Clean Your Tile & Grout?

If you aren’t crazy about cleaning the bathroom and let go of cleaning your tile and grout, there are some things you should know that just might change your mind. We all know the bathroom is a place we spend a lot of time cleaning ourselves; so, we should expect some kind of build-up, just like the dust and pet dander that accumulates in living rooms (or all rooms!) There are a few important things to consider when you are avoiding the task at hand – including the longevity of your surfaces, protection from water damage, the low maintenance upkeep, and most importantly the health of your home and you!

    Keep Your Surfaces in Lasting Condition

    Obviously, the more care you give to your surfaces, the longer they will last and the nicer they will look. Repairs are always available, as required. But proper maintenance will eliminate the likelihood of needing them.

        Bacteria & Germ Collector

        Over the years, you may notice the luster of your grout fade, while the tiles tend to stay looking pretty new. Grout is very porous, so there is the absorption of all of the particulates, germs, or whatever is in the dirt coming off of your body. Everything that is absorbed, tends to stay trapped in the grout. There are many techniques used by professionals and treatments you can use yourself to bring some life back to your bathroom. More importantly, keeping your bathroom sanitary, may just keep your family healthy.

            Water Damage Prevention

            Another downside to grouts’ porous nature, is that as build-up accumulates under the tiles it begins to weaken the bond to the surface. When this happens, water will seep in and if not addressed, it can cause costly water damage. Convinced yet?
