Got Grout - Clean It Out!
Have you ever wondered what causes your tile and grout lines to get so dirty? If you use a standard mop and bucket, or the kitchen sink, you will notice something interesting after the first rinse. That's right - the water is turning brown. The more you use that rinse water the browner, dirtier, it gets. In essence what you are doing is swirling the dirt on the floor with water and soap creating what we like to call a "slurry". A slurry is what happens when soap and dirt are left on the floor. And every time you mop the floor you create a new layer of dirt and stains that are harder to remove.
Soap is an alkaline substance with negative ion charged particles. Dirt is a substance that has positive ion charged particles. Just like a magnet opposites attract. When you create a slurry you are creating an environment where the soap attracts the dirt like a magnet and holds it to the tile and grout. Done enough times it is almost impossible to make new again without my highly specialized cleaning system.
Another thing you should know about the brown build on your tile and grout lines is they are typically loaded with harmful bacteria and other types of germs. Remember - the animals and birds use the great outdoors for their toilet. When you step in bird poop you will track it into your home and deposit small trace amounts into your tile and grout floors - YUK!
So, if you have tried everything that you know of and still are not satisfied with how your tile and grout lines look then it is time to call in the professionals.
Until Next Time,
