How to clean the joints between the tiles?

3 February 2023

Joints between tiles are those gaps between tiles, once they have been placed and filled with a mix of cement, mortar, a mixture of water, and sand.

The size of these spaces is mainly determined by the thickness of the tiles that have been used and are crucial for several reasons. The joints between the tiles in fact:

• ensure that the tiles remain in place;
• fill the spaces and prevent that between the tiles water, dirt or other types of debris will go to deposit;
• make the surface of the tiles themselves more resistant to abrasion and wear.

Why do tile joints get dirty?

The joints between the tiles improve the general appearance of the floor and it is of course important to choose, for their realization, the right type of mortar, as well as it is essential to keep them clean, to avoid the formation of bacteria and mold.

The spaces between the tiles can get dirty because:

• although they are useful to prevent dirt from settling between the tiles, they can still be “home” for debris coming from outside;
• they can be victims of moisture, with the result of growing moulds and fungi.

The joints between the tiles can then darken or discolor and, as mentioned, be affected by moisture, which can penetrate into the joints, if the tiles are not sealed properly.

For these reasons, it is important to regularly clean the joints between the tiles, so as to prevent the formation of stains and the accumulation of dirt.
