Taking Care of Your Grout :: San Diego Restoration
Grout in your house typically is used to seal the gaps between the floor tiles. Grout is a combination of sand, water, cement and color tint. It can easily accumulate dirt and needs to be cleaned correctly by a San Diego restoration professional. It also needs to be resealed every now and then; otherwise the dirt will become permanent. The ideal regularity is between one and two years.
There are many ways of taking care of your grout, mostly featuring chemicals and unnatural products. Our San Diego restoration specialists make sure the solutions we take are natural and healthy – Green is important to us. Before buying a commercial grout cleaner, try using natural products like vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice. Those products are cheap, easy to deal with, and can be found in any household.
Vinegar can either be applied alone or diluted with water. You should let it do its job for 10 minutes, then brush the grout in a circular motion.
Baking soda needs to be made into a paste using either a little vinegar or water. If the dirt is slight, brush the paste with a firm bristled brush for. If it’s serious, though, leave the paste for a few minutes for a better cleaning.
Amazingly lemon juice can remove many grout discolorations and stains! Rub some lemon juice on the affected area, leave it for 10 minutes and then wipe it off with a damp sponge.
