Tile, stone, and grout are not only beautiful touches to a home, they are durable and can be highly dirt resistant too. Tile and grout are usually installed in areas of the home that are more prone to dirt and spills. The discoloration that can occur are not only unsightly but can create a dangerous breeding ground for allergens and bacteria. Dirt and grime can also smudge the surface and settle into the grout lines. Regular cleaning and TLC is required to keep them looking great. The frequency of these cleanings will vary based on the type and color of your tile and how old your flooring is.
