Choosing tile and grout protection

There is an ever-changing range of beautiful tile products to choose from for inside your home. With so many choices and decisions to make when building or renovating, it is often the finishing touches that can be overlooked.

A crucial factor to consider is tile protection and how to clean grout to preserve the long-term look and reduce maintenance time.

Tiles are used in many locations within the home including some of the most used areas such as the bathroom shower or kitchen floor. With constant exposure to minerals in the water, soaps, shampoos, dirt and grime it is important to consider a suitable tile protection.

Consider the following list when selecting the right product for your home.

– Prioritise the areas to protect: Areas such as the tile and grout within the shower, bathroom floors and kitchen floor should be prioritised due to their constant exposure and use. Shower environments can be exposed to dirt, grime, minerals, soap and shampoos. This can lead to staining and build-up up that can be difficult and time-consuming to remove.

– How the protection works: For areas within your home consider a product that not only helps protect the grout, but that also makes the tile surface easy to clean. Choosing a protection that is breathable and resistant to both water and oil stains is beneficial due to the regular exposure in kitchens to cooking oils and wine as well as bathroom contaminants such as soaps and body oils.

– Consider the colour and appearance of the tile: Maintain the look of the tile that you have chosen by selecting a protection that does not change the colour or appearance of the surface after it is applied.

– Understand what products are recommended for cleaning tile and grout after they are protected: While protecting the tile and grout areas help reduce maintenance it does not eliminate the need to maintain them altogether. It is important to learn what to use on the tile to clean the area without damaging the protection. Often, natural cleaners are recommended while highly abrasive products are not required and are to be avoided.
