If you need professional carpet cleaning, you know to call Ace Rug Cleaning. We’ve been the goto experts in Raleigh since 1959.
But what about grout cleaning? If you’ve finally decided to clean your grout, we found these helpful tips so you can do it yourself and save.
NEWS FLASH: Never put bleach on grout. Yes, the bleach will clean the grout, but over time the grout starts to dissolve causing it to pit and break loose. Then your only option is to regrout – No fun.
Tools for Cleaning Grout
If you are doing a reasonably sized area, like your counters, you can get the job done using a small detail brush. If you are doing a big area like your floors, invest in a steam cleaner. The only other thing you’ll need is a cleaning product called Krud Kutter available at hardware stores or any major retailer with cleaning supplies.
Grout Cleaning Technique
Before you get started, break the job into sections. Don’t try to do the whole area at one time.
Spray an area with full strength Krud Kutter and let it sit for a minute. Using the brush, just start brushing. Brush each seam back to front, then do the cross seams. Wipe with a clean rag and see what you have. You may find some spots take a second scrubbing to get it clean. Rinse with clear water and dry.
Grout Sealing Preserves Your Cleaning Job
If you have not sealed your grout in the last 3-5 years, you should seriously consider doing this now that they are clean. Most any hardware store or big box home improvement store has numerous products for sealing grout. Sealing them will help them stay cleaner longer.
Although grout cleaning is not one of the services we provide at Ace, we hope you found this info helpful and will contact us for your rug and carpet cleaning needs when that time arrives.
