Rust coloring in shower tile grout

I have some rust-colored stains on the floor of my shower and I'm not sure how to clean them up. I've been using this bathroom daily for about six months. Any advice?

I've also been using Tilex Daily Shower Cleaner almost daily. Cleaning Glass Shower Doors & Tile - Daily Shower Cleaner | Tilex®

Thank you for any advice!

Welcome to the forums! Aside from hard water or iron content in the water, no idea. The vertical grout line needs removing and replacing with an expandable grout caulk. Cleaning the grout lines may take a good cleaner and a toothbrush.

Thank you chandler! Are there any specific products you'd recommend to clean, or methods to treat a potential hard water problem?

If you think it is rust, then CLR would be a good product. A paste of OxyCLean is also a good safe bleaching type agent.
