What is tile grout?

Grout is a vital part of every tile installation. However, it is seldom praised for its importance. Grout is sometimes overlooked, yet it is crucial to the long-term health and visual attractiveness of your tiled surfaces.

When remodelling a tiled space like a bathroom, kitchen, or other room, it’s important to remember the role that grout plays. Grout is the joint filler used between tiles to eliminate the appearance of joints.

Why is grout difficult to clean? 

You see, grout has a bit of a reputation for being a magnet for dirt, mould, and mildew. Why, you ask? It all comes down to its highly porous nature. This means that grout has countless tiny openings that make it all too easy for particles to cling to its surface.

And when you add moisture to the equation, such as in our beloved bathrooms and kitchens, things can get even stickier. It’s like a perfect storm for grout to attract and hold onto all sorts of unwanted substances.

Grout can harbour bacteria 

When it comes to maintaining a clean and hygienic kitchen, we often focus on the obvious areas like countertops, sinks, and cutting boards. However, there is one unsuspecting culprit that often goes unnoticed: kitchen tile grout. 

Believe it or not, it’s not uncommon to find harmful bacteria such as salmonella, E. coli, and campylobacter lurking within the crevices of our kitchen tile grout.
