Hard Surface Care: Best Tools for Cleaning Tile and Grout

Tools for cleaning tile and grout

Looking for a better way to deep clean tile and grout? Having the proper tools to tackle the job can give you the advantage you need to leave walls and flooring looking brand new.

Dirty tiles can look cloudy and dull, losing their luster and showing dirt build up and scuffs. On top of that, grout is a porous material that is prone to staining and discoloration. If not properly cleaned on a regular basis, it can also create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow.

Routine cleaning and maintenance with the right equipment can help keep dirt and bacteria at bay. We’ve compiled a list of recommended cleaning tools and supplies to help you cut through tough dirt, grime and build up.

Grout Brushes

Small yet mighty, grout brushes are designed to clean nooks and crannies — between tiles, around faucets and in awkward, tight spots around plumbing. Many grout brushes are designed with stiff bristles, often made of wire or nylon, and an ergonomic angled handle to help you apply pressure and clean even the smallest crevices.

Industrial Floor Scrubbers

A powerful, industrial-grade floor scrubber is a valuable investment for cleaning and restoration professionals. Floor scrubbers are available in all shapes, sizes and ranges, and selecting the right one for the job will depend on your space constraints and cleaning needs. For example, you may opt for a machine with built-in chemical injection capabilities like the MotorScrubber ProWash for cleaning a warehouse, while the more compact, lighter-weight M3 may be better suited for a smaller residential job.

Cleaning Solutions

From degreasers to cut through slick, oily stains to low-foaming cleansers, there is a wide range of cleaning solutions designed specifically for hard surface care. These solutions can be used in tandem with advanced floor scrubbers to provide a one-two punch of industrial-strength cleaning power.

Steam Cleaning Equipment

Not just for carpets, steam cleaning is a great way to deep clean hard surfaces. Steam cleaners and extractors allow you to get a deeper clean, lifting dirt from the porous surfaces in tile and grout. Steam cleaning tile also helps improve its shine, leaving you with a sparkling clean you can see instantly.

Tackling stained tile and grout can feel like a massive undertaking but having the right tools can make all the difference. We’re here to make sure you have the equipment to take hard surface cleaning to the next level. Shop our catalog or our Tile and Grout Pro Supply Package to get the essentials at a steal.
