With a damp cloth, wipe down your bathroom tiles and grout. You can also give the floor a sweep and a mop to get rid of any dust and grit in the area.
Before applying grout cleaner, make sure you have all of your safety gear on, including ventilation mask, eye protection and gloves. Spray your grout cleaner along the grout and then give it a couple of minutes to sink in. You can give problem areas a few sprays with the cleaner.
With some warm water and a scrubbing brush, brush along the grout lines. You can then use a grout tool to rake any mould from the grout that is still remaining.
You can also use a grout pen to paint along the grout lines to brighten them up. Shake your pen well before use and then carefully follow the line of the grout to rejuvenate your tiles.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes.
