How to Clean Tile Grout

Published Date April 9, 2021

Tiles can make any bathroom or room look elegant. But only till grout appears in hard-to-reach areas.
Grout may seem easy to remove at first glance. However, many of us have fallen prey to the mistake of haphazardly scrubbing it off. As a result, not only did we waste time and effort, but we also made our tiles look worse.
Luckily, you don’t need to go through cleaning moldy grout from tiles alone. Our commercial grout cleaning services at Royal Building Maintenance have you covered. Our building maintenance crew knows the best way to clean tile grout with varying degrees of thickness.
In the meantime, you may want to try out removing grout on your own. Read on to learn more about how to get rid of your home or building’s tile grout!

5 Easy Steps to Remove Grout from Tiles

It may not be the easiest way to go about it, but a DIY approach to grout removal can still work.
The steps in this section will teach you:

  • How to clean kitchen tile grout
  • How to clean bathroom tile grout

You can try the steps below before you call any commercial cleaning services:

  1. Brush the Grout Off With Warm Water
  2. You will need a stiff-bristled brush for this step. Warm water can be enough to get rid of tile grout with friction from the brush.
    If this fails, you can move on to step two.

  3. Apply Warm Water and Vinegar Together
  4. The combination of warm water and vinegar can also be enough to take out a decent amount of mold tile grout.
    Just as in step one, you will still need a brush with tough bristles. It’s alright to use the same brush from step one.

  5. Consider Baking Soda with Vinegar
  6. Baking soda and vinegar can form a mixture that loosens the grout’s grip on surfaces. After several minutes, grout can disappear when this mixture is used.

  7. Hydrogen Peroxide
  8. Hydrogen peroxide is tough stuff. Consider this substance when the previous three steps fail.
    But, take note that before applying hydrogen peroxide, it is important to rinse the other substances off the tile first.

  9. When in Doubt, Use Bleach
  10. Any kind of bleach will do. Before applying the bleach, you need to rinse the tiles firsthand. Doing this can prevent discoloration.
