Grout Cleaning

Tile is beautiful, durable, and generally easy to clean, but cleaning grout? That’s a different story. Because of its (typically) light coloring and porous composition, grout is prone to staining. In a tiled entry or mudroom, dirt and grime are the usual culprits, while in the kitchen; spills are more likely to blame.

With any cleaning project, it’s always best to start off with the mildest cleaning solution.
