  • You Don’t Need A New Bathroom, Just a New Grout Product!

    Renovating your kitchen and/or bathroom is a pretty penny. Renovation costs are thousands depending on how many changes you plan on making. Many times, renovations don’t even need to occur, rather you just need to revamp the room! For this article, we will focus on the tile and grout in your home.

    Tile and grout work is an expensive part of any room renovation. It’s a lot of labor for the workers who are installing it; installing tile is also an acquired skill, so it’s not a quick and easy job, which is why it tends to be expensive to redo the tile in any room of your home. Unless your tile and/or grout is broken or cracked, you may just need to deep clean and recolor your grout to help you transform the whole look of a room.

    When grout is dirty, it can make a room look old, run down and dull. With the right grout product, you will be able to lift up any dirt, mold, mildew, and liquids that have discolored your grout for many years.

    Grout Shield’s grout cleaners and grout sealers lift tough stains and dirt from porous grout, and can recolor the grout for that new look you’ve been wanting. With Grout Shield products, there is less work and money required to make your tile and grout look great again. Grout Shield cleaners have a neutral-pH level that is safe on grout and tile. Grout Shield’s cleaners help grout lines look renewed and clean.

Grout Shield has a Grout Shield Color Sealer, Grout Shield Clear Sealer, and Grout Shield Enhancer Seal, which can seal and protect your grout lines and tile.

  • Always Think About Grout with a New Tile Installation

    Grout should never be an afterthought. Sure, it may be more fun to choose what tiles you want on your bathroom wall or kitchen floor, but the grout brings it all together. Also, without the grout, your tile won’t stay in place. Lastly, thinking about grout is important, because its appearance and color can totally change the look of your tile and room.

    If you’ve just had new tile installed in your home, it is necessary to seal your tile surfaces. You will have to wait until the grout has time to cure, but once the grout is completely dried, use a grout sealer to protect it.  If you happen to not like the grout color you chose, you can easily change it with a grout color sealer, as well. When you seal your tile installation right away, your grout will be protected from absorbing dirt and grease right off the bat!

    Grout Shield has two different sealers you can use on your newly installed tile including:

    Grout Shield Clear Sealer – This clear-colored sealer protects newly laid tile and grout from becoming stained, dirty, and discolored. This is good to use if you currently like the color of your grout.

    Grout Shield Color Sealer – This penetrating sealer revitalizes and restores color to the grout. This sealer colors and seals in one product. This is good to use if you want to change the color of your grout.

    Why wouldn’t you seal your grout right away? If you just spent all that time and money on new tile work, you might as well protect it! When grout isn’t sealed, it absorbs everything that comes in contact with it. Over time, the grout will look aged and dirty. You don’t want grout that looks dirty, or grout that is full of mold and mildew. If your grout absorbs water, it can cause the tile and grout to crack and break.  When you use a sealer, you’re keeping your tile and grout safe and extending their life and vibrancy.

    Cement-based grout needs to be sealed because it’s porous, but epoxy grout doesn’t need a seal, because it has no pores.  Certain tiles are porous, as well, and it’s in your best interest to protect them as soon as you get them installedStone, slate, granite and marble needs to be sealed. Grout Shield has the following seal for tiles:

    Grout Shield Enhancer Seal –  Our enhancer seal is used for ceramic, slate, or Mexican tile floor to make the tiles look vibrant and new again.

    Looking to seal and protect your new tile and grout? Act now before your grout and tile becomes dirty and/or damaged! Grout Shield sealers can protect your grout and tile from becoming dirty, discolored, and broken. Let our Grout Shield team help you choose a product that will best work for your space and tile type.
