Removing Mold Growth From Grout
Mold, as a fungus, thrives in moist environments and can grow both inside and outside one’s home. Most would require quality cleaning service professionals to monitor mold in bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, basements, and even garages regularly. Fortunately, several cleaners can be used to remove mold from grout. Here are a few examples:
Use Chlorine Bleach
Mold can be removed from white grout using regular chlorine bleach. For colored grout, avoid using bleach as it may cause fading. Wear a mask in addition to your other safety clothing to avoid inhaling the bleach. Scrub bleach directly onto the moldy grout with a toothbrush in small sections. Allow at least 30 minutes for the bleach to sit, and wash with warm water. Repeat as necessary.
Use White Vinegar
Vinegar is an excellent natural cleaning agent that will not discolor or deteriorate grout. Soak the moldy area with white vinegar using a spray bottle. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes before scrubbing with a brush, taking care not to chip away at the grout itself. Spray once more and set aside for 30 minutes. Wash thoroughly with warm water and repeat if needed.
Use Baking Soda Paste
Baking soda is an excellent cleaning agent. To make a paste that you can spread over the mold to lift it, combine 1/2 cup baking soda and some water. Adjust the mixture until it is easily spreadable. Apply the baking soda paste directly to the moldy grout, let it sit for 10 minutes, and afterward brush the mold away. Rinse with water and repeat as necessary.
