3 Reasons Why You Should Regularly Clean Your Bathroom Tiling

Do you have tiled walls or floors in your bathroom? Not only is tiling an attractive finish but with a little attention it’s also pretty easy to keep clean. You can simply wipe down or steam your tile to dislodge dirt and bacteria, but if you don’t also clean your grout regularly, you may experience a number of issues. Here are three reasons why you should clean your bathroom tile and grout habitually.

Improved Atmosphere

When you think about improving your home’s atmosphere, you probably don’t think about the bathroom. But, did you know that on average we spend a year and a half of our lives in there? If you’re ignoring your bathroom’s ambience, you’re missing out on bringing a little more happiness and a little less stress to thousands of hours of your life.

Cleaning your tile and grout is one of the best and most affordable ways to spruce up a bathroom and make it a more pleasant place to be. A thorough cleaning prevents tile discolouration and makes everything look brighter and fresher.

On top of that benefit, grout cleaning can also make your bathroom smell better. Because it is so porous, grout can absorb bacteria in the air. Over time, if not removed, these bacteria can cause a lingering, unpleasant odour.

Improved Health

That absorbed bacteria doesn’t just affect the smell of your bathroom—it could have a negative effect on your family’s health, too. From shoes to spills to sewage, bathrooms are exposed to a wide range of germs.

Some of the most common bacteria found in bathroom tiles and grout include staphylococcus (commonly known as staph), Escherichia coli (E. coli) and streptococcus (strep). Between them, these bacteria can cause a whole host of health problems, including respiratory illnesses, skin problems and serious infections.

As well as bacteria, mould is another problem to watch out for. All the moisture in your bathroom builds up over time, particularly in bathrooms without adequate ventilation. Once again, the porous nature of the grouting is to blame, and mould and mildew are the result of that moisture build-up. Exposure to mould could cause your family to suffer allergic reactions, skin irritation and other unpleasant problems.

The best way to get rid of mould and bacteria is to clean your tile and grout often. Wiping down your tile with a clean cloth and a little cleaner can eliminate these problems, improving your family’s day to day health.

Improved Bank Balance

Retiling can be very, very expensive. Maintaining your tile and grouting is the best way to avoid more extreme and much more costly repairs. And that savings means you get to spend your money on yourself and your family instead.

Many grouts can be permeated by water and other particles. The same goes for unsealed stone and ceramic tiles. If dirty water, mould and bacteria are allowed to seep into tiles and grout for a long period of time, they can end up deep under the surface of your walls and floors, leading to irreparable damage.

However, if this dirt is cleaned out regularly, your tiles can last much longer and stay in good repair for many years to come. The longer they last, the more money you have in your pocket for everyday use.

In short, while cleaning your tile and grout may seem like a small and insignificant act, it can actually improve your daily living and save you from a range of problems later down the line.

While day-to-day maintenance is simply enough, it’s a good idea to have a regular deep clean by a professional. To give your tiling and grout a thorough cleanse, give Black” target=”_top”>Black White Home Services a call to book an affordable domestic cleaning.
