You can be ready to hit the ground running when the recession is over if you spend wisely and make use of your extra time now. The usual response to a downturn in the economy is to overreact and stop spending entirely. This not only fuels the recession, but severely hinders your chances of gaining a significant increase in market share. Only you know your true spending limitations. If you’ve done your work up front; improving throughput and eliminating waste, then you should be in a position to keep on spending. This doesn’t mean you spend unreasonably; just that you should continue to spend if you have the resources.
Normally, tile and grout cleaning is done using bleach. Dip the brush in the chlorine bleach and work on the grout. You can also apply some bleach on the dirty areas first and let them sit for a while. This will allow the bleach to work its magic and loosen the molds and dirt before you scrub away. Caution should be practiced with this method as chlorine bleach can be toxic. Oxygen bleach is a safe alternative.

But do not dwell on this happening as it does not happen very often.
