Step by Step Instructions

1 Clean the surface of the floor
2 Scrub the grout
  • Step 1. Clean the surface of the floor

    Give the floor a general clean before concentrating on the grout. Start by sweeping the floor with a dustpan and brush to remove any loose dirt. Then give it a wash with a mop and cleaning solution. Use a scourer to scrub off any of the more stubborn stains.
  • Step 2. Scrub the grout

    Spray the grout with a grout cleaner. Every grout and tile is different, so it’s a good idea to spray a small section first to make sure the cleaner is colour-safe for your tiles. Once you are sure, spray the grout and leave it for ten minutes to soak in. Then use your scrubbing brush and a bit of elbow grease to give the grout a good scrub.
