Hi, this is Nicholas Iarocci, “The Home Source Guy,” President and Owner of Source Development Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York. And, this is a general discussion on cleaning products for tiles. I think the biggest confusion that homeowners have is that they feel when there’s mildew or that dark staining on the grout, that it’s from dirt. It is from dirt to a point, but I think a lot of these cleaners that aren’t neutral-based cleaners get very gummy, and what they do is rather than cleaning the tile, they actually coat the tile, and I think they lock the tile in the mildew. It creates that dark, you know, look that you get – that dirty look that you get. What cleaners can we use to get rid of all that? Well, I would suggest white vinegar and water. I think this is the greatest remedy to anything. It’s acidic, it gets into the pores, it’ll help you clean it, it’s natural, there’s no gummy residues. Another one would be lemon juice – also acidic. If you have any stains that have any minerals – let’s say hard water stains or metals or anything – this Calcium Lime Rust remover, that’ll help you out. This grout cleaner has peroxides in it or chlorines in it that’ll help you clean it. There’s also hydrogen peroxide you could use to clean the joints. Another little remedy that I’ve heard of is that people take toothpaste with a nice brush and just brush the inside of the groove and help clean it off. So, there’s multiple remedies that you could use to clean off the tile. So, as a general rule, I would use white vinegar and water. Sorry, guys, no more gummy cleaners for me. So, those are some of my general tile cleaning solutions. This is Nicholas Iarocci, “The Home Source Guy,” President and Owner of Source Development Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York, helping you build a better life.
