AdminMay 30, 2021

Considering that you are among those lucky ones, who haven’t yet faced the problem of grout-deposit on the floor, and is here to seek information before such an unpleasant situation arise, let’s first explain what is a grout! Grout is basically the cement applied between two tiles to keep them in place. Applying grout is undoubtedly a messy affair, but messier is the leftover grout on the floor/tile surface. Damp grout is easy to remove in comparison to dried grout. All said and done, grout on the floor is definitely not a pleasant sight. Cleaning grout requires slightly more effort and attention in comparison to regular dirt or a tough stain. However, the good news is, there are a few not-so-difficult methods to remove grout without damaging the floor. The first being, sooner the better, and second is, to clean the grout, we must be consistent and not take up the easy route of using a sharp tool or a harsh floor cleaner, because both has the potential to ruin the original texture of the floor.

For hardened grout, begin with scrubbing the grout with a less-coarse sandpaper and then use a brush to dust of the remains. Then, pour a concentrated solution of warm water and natural floor cleaner on the affected area, and cover it with a moist cloth soaked in the same solution for over a hour. Before the mop dries, remove the mop, and use a medium-strength bristle brush to lightly scrub off any residual remains of the grout. Further, wipe the affected area with a soft cloth soaked in the same floor cleaner-warm water solution and let it dry. This method has to be followed regularly till the grout is completely scrubbed off the floor.

For fresh or damp grout, again pour a concentrated solution of floor cleaner - warm water on the grout, dip a fine wire mesh/wool in the remaining solution and scrub the grout gently. This will dissolve the grout easily. Once the grout has been scrubbed off, wipe it further with a damp cloth soaked in the same solution and then wipe off with a soft dry cloth.

Natural floor cleaners like PUER Floor Cleaner can be effectively used without worrying about any adverse impact on the floor. Continuous application of this floor cleaner will definitely help in removing grout from the floor and will also help you in maintaining a clean, dirt-free and safe floor for your family members.
