Yuck! I am so sorry. From your photos its hard to tell what caused those stains. It could be rust, or even mold. What color is it exactly?

I have a similar situation, especially around the toilet and the tub. I had a supposed expert look at it. He did a cosmetic fix, by repainting the grout. That helps but of course is only a "fix." I rent this place, and it has not been maintained well over the years. I hope someone here can give us both some good ideas.

I just posted something about this on another thread. I tried the things someone suggested, and I worked like a dog over it. It did not help much.....oh, it looks slightly better, but not as good as I would want.

If you hear of anything I could try, let me know.

The floor looks badly spoilt. Implementing some tricks at home may not be the ultimate solution. May be the floor needs more than that. Why not call a professional for they know many tactics to clean flawlessly.An experts advice is the best in every way.

From the above images, It is hard to find the stains on the tiles. But you should use the bathroom cleaner to remove the stains from the tiles and you can also use Vinegar and Baking Soda as a floor cleaner to remove the tiles stains.

Sorry, but I cannot agree with this. There are way too many people who pass themselves off as professionals, but who actually unskilled. I will give you a perfect example. My landlord hired "a tub expert" to repair two deep scratches and chips on my bathtub. Probably caused when it was installed 5 years ago. The guy seemed to know what he was doing and was pleasant. But four days later, his patch fell off! - and took MORE tub with it.

Many trades do not have internal controls, and this means just about anyone can advertise their supposed expertise. If I were going to hire someone top do something, I would research them before calling. Look up the reviews and comments of their work, stuff like that. Find out if any complaints have been filed against this person.

I myself once hired a supposed expert house cleaner. Oh what a lie! She was terrible and her attitude was worse. I wasted good money on this charlatan.

Oh - the supposed tub repair expert had to return here, as the first patch he did on my tub fell off! I seriously doubt this second attempt to fix it will help.

The stains around my toilet - well, I have tried every possible method to remove them - without any luck. What I finally did was very carefully, using white acrylic paint, paint OVER the stains. And it looks good now. Obviously this wont work in the original posters problem, but its an idea for someone else.

Hi everyone, great tips you have given for bathroom cleaning. Yes, vacuuming is one home clean-up tasks that you should perform on daily basis. Simple household items like vinegar or baking soda can be effective cleaners. I am working with Momentum janitorial commercial cleaning company in and around Southern California and we are able to meet your needs when it comes to time and frequency; we are able to clean weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. Good sharing.

High pressure, hot water with the right chemicals usually works best for tiles and hard surface. You could also try a hard carpet brush such as a Taski 800 with a ph-neutral product such as BonnetPro Omega.

I would like to know how the original poster managed this problem. Since I have had the same issue, I would like to know if anything helped.

One of the least maintained floors nowadays are made from ceramic tiles and stone, but the time will come when it will not be possible to remove the buildup from over the years with home cleaning products and bare hands alone. Many people have terrible memories of scrubbing the floor on their hands and knees, trying and failing to get some results.
