It sounds like there's no sufficient ventilation in your bathroom, and mould manages to grow on the tile grout while you're gone. It happens often in older buildings or in places where the bathroom doesn't have a window, or maybe you leave the door closed and condensation appears, which leads to high humidity and mould. The reasons why this happens can be many. The tile grout can be easily cleaned using bleach, an alkaline cleaner, or with vinegar and baking soda, if you're a fan of the nature friendly cleaning methods. Basically you need to pour the chosen cleaning solution, leave it for at least 15 minutes and then scrub the grout clean. To avoid future situations like that, you can try to provide the bathroom with proper ventilation, you can ask a neighbour or someone you trust to come in from time to time and open the windows for a while, or you can try covering the floor with something, to see if it will still happen. You could also check for cracked pipes or leaks of any kind in the bathroom. It's also a good idea to seal the grout with a special sealant, this way the dirt won't stick to it as much and it will be easier to clean it.

Whenever you are travelling, do remember to keep your toilet doors open as well as your bedroom doors. You can try placing dehumidifier inside your bathroom while you are gone too to help absorb the moisture in the air. Just remember to keep the lids of your toilet bowl closed so that it won't breed mosquitoes.
