Tile can make a kitchen, bath or foyer look great, but typical traffic can wear down you grout and give it a dull look. It collects dirt, and grows mold after time. No one wants to think about their floor tub stall or walls being laden with mold and dirt, so many folks have set their minds to the best way to clean your tile and grout. Each method is based in a different school of thought. I hope that one of our methods will work for you.
