If it hasn’t happened yet, eventually your tile will lose its original shine and become slightly discolored. For many homeowners in Sacramento and Elk Grove, this can be a cause of frustration. This is especially true after hours of scrubbing on your hands and knees and nothing seems to have changed.
What exactly is the main culprit for discolored tile and grout? One of the main reasons that homeowners fail to restore the original look of their tile and grout is misunderstanding the source of discoloration. Understanding it can make a significant difference in keeping your tile and grout surfaces looking their best.
The Source Of Tile and Grout Discoloration
Immediately homeowners point the finger at dirt or previous spills for discolored tile and grout. While this is somewhat true, there’s a source that makes this issue significantly worse.
The most common cause of discolored grout is a combination of grime with sticky residue left behind in the cleaning process. Grout surfaces are extremely porous, and because they’re set lower than tile, this is the ideal spot for residue and dirt to settle. This is also a hotspot for the growth and spreading of harmful bacteria.
So while you think scrubbing and mopping with at-home solutions will correct the problem, it won’t give you the results you want. It won’t extract what’s settled deep within the porous surfaces. When too much moisture is used in the tile and grout cleaning process, this also causes grout can become dirty exponentially faster. It can stay that way no matter how much scrubbing and mopping you do.
