Tiles are perfect for use in high moisture and busy areas such as bathrooms and kitchens. They are non-porous and easy to clean. However with these areas, where moisture is in the air, or splashes onto the tiles – the risk of mould, germs and bacteria growing on your walls and floors grows. Because the tiles themselves are resistant to these problems, the moulds will find their way into the joints and form along the grout.
Over time grout joints collect grime, dirt and mould and it can start to age the look of room they are in. Whether it’s something that you have noticed over time, have just bought a new home or you are looking to refresh your walls or floors but don’t have the budget to fully replace the tiles – then cleaning up your grout joints is a great way to brighten up your home and remove any health issues and unsightly mould in the home (in particular areas where you wash or prepare food)
Whilst there is the option of mould resistant grout and epoxy’s designed to prevent this problem – not everyone has taken this option and older surfaces can have a build-up of dirt and grime in the grout joints. It’s a great way to refresh older surfaces and bring kitchens and bathrooms back to life.
LTP Mouldex is designed with anti-bacterial properties that not only clean up older stains, but prevent the re-growth of more mould.
Cleaning grout lines is a simple process – we have provided a free information sheet with a guide on how to use this product that you can download.
Shake the bottle well before you use it. And spray the area that needs cleaning, then leave for 45mins. You will see the Mouldex working almost instantly and the dirt and grime start to loosen up and come away from the grout.
After this time use a water and agitate the grout lines with a stiff brush / scouring pad to remove the mould and grime. This does require a bit of elbow grease – but you will notice a difference straight away and see the original colour of the grout (as well as giving the tiles a freshen up too)
Once done, rinse with clean water and wipe clean.
This process will brighten up older grout joints and surfaces, giving your walls and floors a new lease of life and extended the time you have before you need to re-decorate.
