Pet and Child-Friendly: The non-toxic procedure of steam cleaning makes your home a lovelier and safer environment for children and pets. A common chemical in most of the cleaning agents is Sodium Hypochlorite.

How to Steam Clean Tile Grout on your own.
Step 1: Steam Jet Cleaning
Before using any attachments to your cleaner, first of all, blast the grout with the steam jet to remove the worst of the loose gunk.
Step 2: Rubbing with Nylon Bristle
Make sure that you do not use any brush attachments at this point because that will only further embed the debris.
Start with bristles that are made of nylon, as they will not damage your grout, no matter how hard you rub.
Use the wire bristle attachment with utmost care. The wire brush is going to be your ultimate weapon, but it can also chip your tile. If you have glossy and smooth tile a wire brush will most certainly scratch it!
Step 3: Remove Gunk
You got to work from the top to downward. Every few minutes, douse the steamed area on your bathroom wall with fresh water to move the gunk down to the gutter. You do not want to let softened gunk remain on the surface because it will harden and your problems start all over again.
Step 4: Steam Clean
This is the last step after steaming an area, give the machine enough time to build up steam again. Then clean up water and loosened debris with the sponges and rags.
