Why mold develops on grout
The most usual place to find mold is between tiles, because as we already said grouts are porous and are highly susceptible to microscope growth. Whether it is a kitchen backsplash or bathroom. If a room has insufficient ventilation and you don’t run a fan or dehumidifier, it can quickly become the best place for molds. Trust us, removing molds from the grout between tiles can be a monotonous task, but it’s well worth it to avoid mold-related illnesses.
How to remove mold from grout
Luckily, there are many cleaning agents that work to eliminate the mold from the grout between tiles. When you are cleaning the grout between the tiles, firstly, make sure the cleaning agent you use won’t create any damage to that specific kind of tile. There are some tiles that should not come in contact with bleach or harsh agents like baking soda.
Safety first. Make sure you work in a well-ventilated space with an open window or operational fan. Always wear non-porous gloves to protect your skin, and don’t forget safety glasses to protect your eyes from splash-back while cleaning.
Chlorine bleach. Regular chlorine bleach works great to remove mold from white grout. Avoid bleach if you have colored grout. Since it can cause fading, and also make sure you never mix bleach with other cleaners. Wear a mask along with your other protective gear to avoid inhaling the bleach. Start working in a small area and scrub the bleach directly onto the moldy grout using a stiff bristle toothbrush. Leave the bleach for 30 minutes to set, then rinse with warm water. Repeat these steps if required.
Baking soda paste: Baking soda is a great stain and odor lifting agent. To make a paste that you want to spread over mold to lift it, stir together ½ cup of baking soda and several teaspoons of water. Maintain the combination until you have an easily spreadable consistency. Then apply the baking soda paste directly over the grout which has molds. Now, leave it for 10 minutes, then scrub the mold away with a bristle brush. Rinse with water, and repeat as needed.
