Safe Way to Say You Got the Healthy Grout Cleaning Process


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Health
It is necessary to know how to clean grout. Despite the fact that there are many ways of cleaning grout, the simplest way to clean, kill germs and get rid of stains is by using a steam cleaner. You can clean tile grout without scrubbing, but the products you'd need to use contain some pretty harsh chemicals. If a simple and nontoxic method were available, it would be the best thing

Bleach is one of the most common substances used to "whiten" things, so you might be tempted to use it to whiten stained tile grout. While chlorine bleach does a great job of killing mold spores, simply spraying it on is not enough to break the mold growth triangle (water, food and temperature). Here's why bleach alone won't work: The "dirt" in your tile grout is behind a layer of soap scum, and this layer need not be thick and obvious. Keep in mind most of these cleaning reactions are taking place at a molecular level, and a layer of soap residue a thousandth of an inch thick can prevent the "bleach to dirt" contact. The main tool used to clean grout lines is going to be a small, specialty brush known as a grout brush. In a pinch an old toothbrush can sometimes be substituted for this. The idea is to have a tool that is small and narrow enough to allow you to work in between the tiles without scratching their surface.

Greener options than bleach for grout cleaning.One option is to regrout your tiles with a dark-colored grout. White grout is infinitely harder to keep looking nice than, say, a dark brown color. When I chose the grout for my own bath remodel, I used a non-sanded type in a "butter cream" shade for the shower, which complemented the tiles and was good match for the "sandstone" color grout I used in the travertine floor. These colors are pretty true to "dirt" in their appearance, so they look cleaner than white grout looks after several years of use.

Since grout is a porous and rough surface, it tends to pose cleaning challenges that are not present on the surface of glazed tile or polished stone. Dirty-looking grout is usually a combination of dirt, mold and mildew. To be effectively cleaned, a combined attack is needed one that reaches into the tiny pores of the grout and stops mildew at its source.

For molds and mildews to grow, they need a moisture source, a food source and a bit of warmth. Reducing the temperature of your shower to the temperature of a refrigerator is … well let's just say that's not going to work. The best method of control is by reducing the food and water sources for mold. The food source for most of these molds is our own skin cells and the soaps we use. The phosphates found in many soaps are also a great fertilizer for this growth. Keeping these residues at minimum levels will reduce potential mold growth. To reduce moisture, you could squeegee or towel down the walls of your shower after every use. I'm not quite that motivated; in my home I leave the bath door wide open after a shower to allow the humidity to dissipate and this seems to work for me. Running a bathroom exhaust fan also helps pull humidity out of the room.
