Don’t Forget About The Grout

Does your office have tile floors and surfaces? Did you know that even if you swept and mopped your office on a regular basis, your floors still wouldn’t be as clean as they could be? The reason may surprise you, but it’s because of your grout.


Grout lines are extremely porous, meaning they easily absorb dirt and debris when exposed to contaminants. And if grout lines are unsealed, the risk is amplified. All tile—and especially the grout—needs occasional deep cleaning and sealing to maintain its appearance and durability. Skipping this crucial maintenance step can result in: damaged grout, damaged tile, persistent odor, and stains or discoloration to name a few.


Thankfully, keeping tile and grout looking great doesn’t have to break the bank with professional services like N&A Commercial Cleaners.


Our eco-friendly and stone-safe cleaners will effectively clean, disinfect, and protect your tile and grout lines without harmful residues, odors, or toxins. Whenever possible it is always recommended to have tile and grout serviced by experienced professionals.


Once grout has been deep cleaned, it’s easy to maintain with proper care. Daily or weekly, using a mild stone and grout-safe cleaner, wipe down your tile and grout lines. A 4:1 solution of water and vinegar is a low-cost and green DIY option. Frequent vacuuming of tiled surfaces is also a good way to combat grout-line staining by preventing the absorption of dirt and grime.


Proper maintenance not only extends the life of your surfaces but also reduces the elbow grease required to scrub out more set-in stains.


Here are a few things to avoid when attempting to clean tile and grout:

  • Acidic or abrasive cleaners that can eat away at sensitive grout lines
  • Steel wool or harsh agitators that can damage grout and scratch tile
  • Soap-based cleaners which leave film-like residues behind, promoting mildew
