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.
At a glance, grout complements the way tiles look. But when they're dirty, it can easily ruin the overall appearance of your home.
Like any material, heavy traffic, improper cleaning methods or products, can cause your ceramic tiles to look lifeless or even degrade them over time.
The use of incorrect grout sealants or no sealant at all can cause your grout to crack, chip, fall out, become stained, attract mold, and more.
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.
