If your backsplash has seen better days, a thorough cleaning could go a long way toward getting it back into good condition. Of course, this is no easy task, especially if you haven’t cleaned it in years. Below, we’ll offer some simple tips to help you get better results. And, if you decide to just call a backsplash install company to have the old one replaced instead of cleaned, we’d be happy to serve you.
A Good Starting Point
You don’t necessarily need to go out and purchase any expensive cleaning solutions to get good results on this project. For a starting point, try adding some vinegar to a bottle of warm water and spray that solution on the backsplash. Once it has set on the surface for a minute or two, wipe it off and see how it looks. You might need to add a stiff bristle brush to this process if there is a layer of build-up on the tiles and grout that doesn’t want to come off easily. Of course, test that brush first to make sure it isn’t going to do damage to the tiles.
If this tactic doesn’t work to your liking, making a paste out of water and baking soda could be a good next step. You’ll wipe that paste onto the backsplash, leave it for a few minutes, and then clean it off. It might be a combination of these two strategies that leads you to the best results.
Is It Time for a Change?
You could look at your dirty backsplash as a reason to have a new set of tiles installed. Working with a backsplash install company will allow you to make quick work of this new project, and the finished result will be beautiful – and perfectly clean. You might be surprised at how affordable it can be to hire a backsplash install company, and you can aim to keep this new backsplash clean along the way so you never end up with a big cleanup job down the road.
