Trusted Grout Cleaning Specialist

grout cleanersSearching for the best grout cleaners can be difficult. You will find several different types of grout cleaners. Grout cleaners are available in variations from very mild to very harsh. There are homemade and organic cleaners and even chemical cleaners that need gloves, goggles, and a well-ventilated area to be used appropriately. You may find cleaners, which are sprays, sprays that turn bubbly, and pastes. Each has its place, so you’ll have to understand each to determine the best cleaner for your grout cleaning job.

Types Of Grout Cleaners

Mild Grout Cleaners

Mild grout cleaners range from general household cleaners to homemade cleaners made especially for tile and grout. These are for public use, often used, and for simple jobs. If your job has limited soiling, try a general cleaner to determine if it does the trick.

Harsh Grout Cleaners

Harsh grout cleaners are just that. They can be very strict, and proper safety measures should be taken when using these products. These are used only occasionally because they can erode the grout, bringing about more problems than you started with if used too often. And for that reason, only use them on very heavily soiled grout. An excellent general guideline uses the weakest solution to get the job done.

Therefore, generally, it is recommended to start with a water mist, let it sit, and then try as mild cleaner as you can find, and little by little, go more demanding and more challenging until you find the one that will work. Conduct all small areas, which move to the rest of the place, to clean using the cleaner that does the job.

You can make some cleaners from everyday household items that are organic and pretty effective. Vinegar water solutions can work in addition to any general household cleaner and are naturally a disinfectant. You can make an excellent baking soda paste to use on dirtier grout. Use 1/3 baking soda, 1/3 salt, and 1/3 vinegar. And you can use lemon juice rather than bleach on discoloured areas and stains. Another cleaner you can make that is not organic is a bleach solution. Use an answer of at most three parts water to one part bleach, or you can have a problem eroding the grout, as in the harsh chemical cleaners.


Sprays are perfect, but a paste may be just the ticket to cleaning your soiled grout. Pastes are great since they have to dissolve granules that can get down into the grout’s pores and pull the dirt out. Usually, the granules are some salt solution with a bit of glycerin to draw in the soil and then dissolve to clean it.

Perhaps you have realised no one correct answer to the question, “What are the best grout cleaners?”. However, you have the information to pick the best cleaner.

The Problem With Grout And Tile 

Grout is the strengthened material that connects the tiles on the floor to the walls. It’s important because it prevents moisture from seeping through the tiles. Grout colour may also brighten and improve the appearance of sinks, backsplashes, and other tiled surfaces.

Grout is porous, with microscopic pores that collect moisture and debris, which is unfortunate. When you factor in Sacramento’s scorching summers, reminiscent of those in the Mediterranean, these problems will quickly pile beneath your tiles. Cold and wet winters can also impact the appearance of the grout in your kitchen and bathroom.
