Look for Recommended Cleaners
Most tile materials will have a particular maintenance procedure and cleaning product that’s recommended. Ceramic tiles and porcelain can get cleaned with a pH-neutral cleaner or water.
Abrasive cleaning solutions will end up scratching tiles. Start with a mild cleaning solution and soft cloths first to remove spots and stains. You could also make a cleaner.
Make a Cleaner
If you have ceramic or porcelain tiles, you can make a homemade cleaner. Make a do-it-yourself cleaner from dish soap and warm water.
You could also try using diluted vinegar. You don’t want to use plain vinegar because it’s too acidic. Pure vinegar can damage and weaken the grout.
If you don’t have time for this task, hire someone with expertise in tile and grout cleaning.
Clean the Tiles
Spray the gentle homemade solution on your grout and tiles. Use a cloth or a damp microfiber cloth to wipe the tiles. If you have to tiles in your shower, you will need something stronger.
In the shower, you will need to clean surface dirt, debris, and soap scum. Spray the shower walls and floors and let it sit for 20 minutes before cleaning.
Try Using Hot Steam
You could also spray the tiled floors and walls and let the shower run hot water for five minutes.
The hot water in the shower will build steam. It will be a lot easier to clean the grout and tiles after steaming the shower.
Deep Clean the Grout Lines
Next, you’re going to need to clean the grout lines. Grout can become grimy. Spray the grout with hot water and use a stiff bristle brush to clean the grout.
If you notice a lot of grime and dirt, use a steam cleaner. Try applying the steam directly to the grout.
After you apply the steam, use your brush and scrub in a circular motion. Make sure to blot up any remaining moisture with a clean rag.
Don’t Forget About Maintenance
If you want to keep your grout and tiles in good condition, you’ll want to have a regular maintenance schedule.
Bathrooms tend to be humid and damp. Watch out for mildew or mold. Make sure you remove mildew right away, so it doesn’t have a chance to build up.
Grout should get re-sealed every so often to protect against staining and discoloration.
Stick to a regular maintenance schedule. This way, you won’t have to deep clean the grout and tiles every time.
