The Pedalo grout cleaning system keeps you off your knees and on your feet when dealing with freshly-installed grout — saving both time and wear and tear on your body. The core of the system is an aluminum pole with a grout sponge attachment and a matching, serrated, foot-driven “squeegee” bucket.
Pedalo also includes a soft, yellow hand sponge for smaller clean ups.
You’re probably thinking — if you’ve never cleaned grout before — what makes this different than a mop? Easy: mops just smear the grout around, whereas specially-designed grout sponges get down into the spaces between tiles and clean off more easily. They do, however, require a uniquely-shaped bucket to work correctly. This is the first one we’ve seen that’s foot-operated.
Saving your back isn’t cheap, though. Street pricing starts at around $250 for the whole system. With that kind of buy-in, you might want to just wear some knee pads.
