Keeping your tile flooring clean and looking like new can be a challenge, especially if you have little children running around and family pets as well. Spills and accidents happen all of the time; unfortunately we are not always aware that they have occurred. The most vulnerable area of your tile flooring is the grout. Grout can easily become stained and these stains can be extremely difficult to remove on your own. Some spills and accidents are much more potent than others and if you do not act immediately after the spill or accident occurs, you will be left with unsightly stained grout.
Grape Juice Stain; How to Make Grout Look New Again
One of the biggest grout offenders is red wine or grape juice. If your tile has a lighter colored grout, then these two liquids can do quite a number on the grout that is between your tiles. The pigment of a dark wine or grape juice is so potent that if it is not immediately dealt with it will quickly seep into the grout of your tile and become almost impossible to remove. When your grout is dirty, it makes the rest of your floor look dirty, no matter how hard your scrub or how shiny your tile is.
How to Clean Pet Urine from Grout
Another accident that destroys the cleanliness of your grout is pet accidents. Pet urine can be extremely potent and if not cleaned quickly will leave a dark yellow or orange stain in your grout lines. Most indoor pets are the culprit of these accidents, as they are left home alone and the homeowner doesn’t stumble across the accident until it has been sitting on the floor for quite some time. During that time the pet urine has penetrated the grout and will be extremely difficult to remove.
