Many homeowners use DIY cleaning recipes to clean their tile. However, some aren't aware of the possible consequences of using such methods.
Moving into a newly built home is a rewarding experience. The thing is, some homebuilders don't seal your tile, grout, or stone surfaces.
Moisture that gets behind tiles can destroy the drywall backing, cause rot, and cause the tiles to begin to fall off or lead to mold problems.
After installing new tiles, most installers will not seal the tile surfaces right away to ensure that the grout has enough time to cure completely.
When the fixtures surrounding tubs, showers, sinks, and backsplashes are moldy, peeled, or cracked, you should immediately take action.
Beyond the normal cleaning routines like sweeping, mopping, or wiping down surfaces, grout lines receive little to no additional attention.
Mold grows in warm, damp areas where there is little to no circulation in the air. Proper grout sealing is the best way to prevent issues with mold.
Cement-based grout, no matter how well it is sealed, can begin to fall apart over time because it is porous and easily absorbs contaminants.
Grout is an essential element of tile installations. When grout is old and starting to deteriorate you may want to remove old grout and regrout.
Many people find excessive water around the tub or shower and assume there is a leaking pipe or drain when that isn't necessarily the case.
