  • Grout Color Can Drastically Change Your Home

    grout color


    Installing new tile into your kitchen or bathroom can certainly change the look of the room; the room can go from dated to modern in just that one switch. However, if you aren’t planning on installing new tile any time soon, or cannot afford to re-tile at this time, changing your grout color is just as effective for a big change in a room. The color of the grout can make the tile and room look entirely different.

    For example, if you have a dark tile, a light colored grout like white, ivory, taupe, sandstone, or almond, creates a big contrast. A contrast like this looks great on a kitchen backsplash; it can make quite the statement for the room. This contrast between the tile and grout will really pop and add a whole other dimension to the room. Your guests will notice!

    Darker grout colors like gray, charcoal, pewter, and even black, tone down the tile (if the tile is also dark) and make it harder for the pattern to stick out. You’ll have a very flat look with the colors being similar. Dark grout color also hides dirt easily. Dark grout color on dark tile and light grout color next to light tile creates a monochrome look and effect in the room.

    If you want to use a medium-based color, these aren’t as dramatic as a light or dark grout color. These are a great choice if you have a multi-color tile, so you can bring out one of the colors on the tile with your grout color choice. Or, these medium colors give you a chance to match another color in the room like the wall color, furniture, or accessories.

    When choosing a grout color, you’re able to complement or contrast elements in the room in a variety of different ways to truly bring together a great (and different) look to any room in your home.

    At Grout Shield, we can match any color in the world to the current grout in your home. Why? We can create any color for you. White? Sage? Ocean Blue? Pale Mauve? Camel? Concord Grape? You name it, we can do it!

  • Common Myths About Cleaning Grout

    Cleaning grout and tile is a tough job. Unfortunately, using a mop, sponge or brush with soap and water (and many other cleaners) isn’t enough to keep your kitchen or bathroom floors looking brands new. Dirt, liquids, and other debris that land on the tile and grout build up slowly over the years, despite your cleaning efforts? Why? Grout is porous and easily absorbs whatever it comes in contact with. Properly cleaning tile and grout can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be with the right grout restoration products from Grout Shield.

    When it comes to cleaning grout and tile, there are a lot of common myths and misconceptions. We wanted to clarify these for you so you can better understand how to clean your grout from now on with Grout Shield cleaners and sealers so you won’t waste any more time with ways that simply don’t work.

    Myth: Using just a mop keeps grout clean.
    Truth: A mop is great for cleaning tile, but it is unable to remove dirt, debris, and stains from grout, which is a harder place to reach since stains settle deep into grout.

    Myth: Soap and water clean grout.
    Truth: Using soap and water may make the tile look a bit cleaner, but it cannot work as affectively as a true grout cleaner. Grout Shield cleaners can color seal grout that creates a beautiful color grout that resists stains in the future. Over time, regular soap and water will create a film on the grout, which will also make the grout appear not clean. Grout Shield cleaners safely removes dirt and stains from your grout’s surface and the cleaner bonds to the grout.

     

    Myth: Bleach cleans grout.
    Truth: Although beach can clean stains, it is not smart to use this product on grout. Bleach causes grout to break and deteriorate over time.

     

    Myth: Using a wire brush will get all stains out of grout.
    Truth: Wire brushes certainly are strong enough to scrub away dirt and stains on grout, but this scrubbing can cause damage to your grout. It’s best to use a Grout Shield cleaner and take a sponge or chamois to lightly scrub or wipe away debris and dirt that built up over time.

     

    If you’ve been misinformed about how to clean your grout, now is the time to make to make the change to a true grout cleaner! Grout Shield’s grout cleaners are neutral pH-cleaners that are non-combustible and fast acting. After just a few minutes soaking in the grout, you are able to easily wipe away dirt and the grout will be clean as new.
