Vapor Grout Cleaning – From our quick tips series
Use these housekeeping tips to overcome challenging porous grout:
- By far the best “small scale” based way to clean grout for home use are portable vapor cleaning units.
- Make sure the any vapor cleaning unit that is considered provides 300+ degrees and has a PSI rating of 50 psi or greater
- Remember to always pre-spray the proper chemicals before vapor cleaning and – never – fill your vapor cleaner with anything but distilled water
While we use commercial units less expensive, handheld versions can be found online easily for less then $100. A reminder that distilled water alone does not clean well despite the myth and/or hype from the marketing. You will always want to pre-spray your grout with a safe acid.
