If your grout continues to look dingy and dirty no matter how often you clean it, you’re not alone. In fact, for many homeowners it can be frustrating to keep tile and grout sparkly clean

There’s actually a main culprit for discolored grout, and understanding it can make a significant difference in keeping your tile and grout surfaces looking their best. 

Grime and Sticky Residue = Discolored Grout 

A common assumption is that discolored grout is a result of dirt and spills. While this is true, there’s actually a source that makes this issue significantly worse. 

The most common cause of discolored grout is actually 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. 

When too much moisture is used in the tile and grout cleaning process, grout can become dirty exponentially faster—and stay that way no matter how much scrubbing and mopping you do. 

That’s why utilizing professional tile and grout cleaning services is so important. Chem-Dry has professional grade equipment that’s strong enough to extract dirt from grout without depositing sticky residue. We also refresh the protective sealant on your grout in the process—making it more resilient to stains.
