Unfortunately, years of built up dirt and debris from previous owners may not be so charming. One area where this is particularly noticeable is tiled floors. Often it isn’t even the tile, even if the color or texture of the tile is outdated. Usually it is the porous grout that runs between the tiles, ever-collecting dirt, grease, and grime. If you look closely, you will see that these porous joints resemble mortar joints in between brick. This material has many nooks and crevasses where dirt collects.
