Grout is used to fill voids, and seal the joints and spaces, between ceramic tiles on a wall or on the floor. It is a construction material which consists of a mixture of cement, water and sand. No matter the tile material type — ceramic, slate, natural stone, etc. — they all use grout.
While tile floors are relatively easy to maintain and keep clean with regular sweeping, vacuuming and washing, you may find that with time and use the floor develops an uneven, unsatisfactory and dull appearance. The grout is probably the reason why.
Closely looking at any grout on a tile floor and you will see that the grout is usually recessed lower then the surface level of the tiles. As a result, it is these spaces where any spillages will gather. Plus, as tiled floors are usually found in areas such as kitchens and bathrooms, the likelihood of spills is very high. Even if spills are dealt with quickly, the grout can still become stained as it is a relatively porous material which liquids filtrate easily.
If the grout does become stained, it can lead to a dulling effect which can change the visual appearance of the floor, even if the tiles are impeccably cleaned. This can lead to an unsatisfactory appearance, and when this occurs general cleaning methods may cease to be effective.
