How Dirty Grout Can Impact Your Health

If you have dirty grout, it can be a host for mold and bacteria. Your grout can hold things like salmonella, staph, and even E Coli. This is because these can get trapped in the grooves and pockets of the grout. When you walk on the floors or even have a child crawling on them, they can easily pick up these bacteria and get sick.

Another thing that can grow in your grout is mold. Some types of mold can be harmful to your health. This is especially true if you suffer from asthma or allergy issues. Your bathroom is warm and has a lot of moisture, and those are what the mold needs to grow. If you or a family member is sensitive to mold, they may have respiratory issues, including those issues that are severe.

Keeping your family safe from bacteria and mold is imperative. You may think keeping the floor mopped is going to be good enough, but it is not. You need to have a professional cleaner clean your grout. They have specialty equipment that can give you the best cleaning possible. They can also help you to reduce mold and bacteria build-up by helping you switch to an epoxy grout. Cement grouts are porous and can harbor bacteria and mold easier. With epoxy grout, you can clean it easier.

When planning out your home maintenance, you will want to plan a grout cleaning at least twice a year. This will help to ensure that your grout is always clean and safe to be on. The Grout Medic is proud to help you keep your home clean and leave you with no worries about mold or bacteria. If you decide that you want to get rid of your cement grout and switch to an epoxy grout, we can help you to do that as well. Give us a call today, and we will make an appointment to come to rescue your grout and your health.
