When you have your tile installed in your home whether it is in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry or entry room, the lines in-between are outfitted with grout. The grout is made up and pressed into the spaces that are between each tile as a way to hold the tile in place and secure the ground underneath. Without it the water and moisture will build up under the tile loosening them and causing mold and mildew to grow. The grout that you choose will have a particular color or tint and when it is dry you can see that original color. The problem comes as you live everyday life and the grout starts to become stained and dirty. The grout is lower than the actual tile and that means that the water and other debris settles in those spaces. That is why it is important that the grout in your home is cleaned as a chore in itself. Just cleaning the tile is not enough to clean the grout too. The process that goes into cleaning grout is labor intensive and can take a lot of time.

How to Clean Grout on Tile Floors: The first step is to make your cleaning solution that you want to use. This can be done by using baking soda, water and vinegar. Take the baking soda and water to make a paste that will be used as a cleaning agent as well as an abrasive. The vinegar should be diluted with water and put in a spray bottle. Start by spraying the area that you want to work on with the vinegar and let it sit for about one minute. Then you can use the paste and a soft bristle brush to scrub the paste around cleaning the area as you go. You will need to scrub one area at a time so that you can reach; since you are often times sitting on the floor. Then you want to use a wash cloth and some clean water to wipe away the cleaning solution. The area is then dry and you can move onto the next area. This is very time consuming and labor intensive. It can be hard on your knees and back while you are scooting from one area to the next. This is an option for you to clean your grout but that is not the only option.
