Hello pros,

I am looking for suggestions on how to clean/remove the stained grout and mold in this basement shower. I've tried several sprays and products, to no avail. I read a pressure spray might work, but am worried it might remove or damage the grout.

What products can you recommend to bring these tiles back to new or better condition? Or do you recommend getting a professional in?

Your thoughts are appreciated.

Hi there, make sure your shower fan works properly. If you don't have one , you better install one, at this point I would scrap all the caulking and use knife to empty old grout and redo everything again,

Hopyit helps

Hello! Use a spray bottle, saturate the moldy area with white vinegar. Let it sit for 30 minutes and then scrub with a bristle brush, being careful not to chip away at the grout itself.
