Grout is available in a variety of colours with white being the most common. Located between tiles, grout can quickly become dingy and stained with a build-up of dirt, grime, mould and mildew. Over time, these factors will cause your white grout to lose its bright colour. The dirty white grout can make the whole room appear dull. Fortunately, you can remove the stains and fungus and restore the look of your grout.
