  • Caring for Your Shower Grout

    Your shower gets used and abused! Think about it. Your shower gets used daily, and if you have a family you could have anywhere from 3 to 12 showers a day! That’s well over 1,000 times a year. That’s a lot of usage!

    Over time, the tile and grout lines get dirty. A combination of soap, dirty, mold, and mildew will accumulate on both the tile and the grout. The grout, being porous, will absorb all these elements and become discolored.

    If you are unsure of how to clean your grout, don’t rely on the search engines online to give you proper cleaning methods. Regular soaps and water will “clean” your tile, but they won’t make your grout look cleaner. Vinegar and ammonia will potentially ruin your tile. With these products, you’ll spend hours scrubbing with little success.

    If you routinely clean your shower with a proper tile and grout cleaner, you’ll get to avoid costly repairs or renovations. Most products out there contain harsh chemicals that may look like they’re cleaning your tile and grout but they’re actually wearing down your tile’s shine and your grout’s repellency. Once a grout’s seal is gone, it will absorb anything it comes in contact with. It will be full of water, soap, debris, dirt, mold, mildew, and more! So not only is it dirty, it’s full of germs, as well! It can even start to smell!

    If your grout is “permanently” stained, you don’t have to retile and re-grout your bathroom, but rather, use Grout Shield grout products, which are specifically formulated to clean grout.

    Here are some Grout Shield’s products that will help clean your grout and tile:

    Herea aj Grout Shield Color Sealer – This sealer allows you to match or change the color of the existing grout without having to remove any of the grout. It re-colors and seals your grout, so it’s protected from the elements.

    Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner – If your bathroom needs a good clean, get the maintenance cleaner. To use, dilute the cleaner in water, damp your mop and towel dry.

    Grout Shield Restoration Kit – If you need to clean and seal, get this kit. It will help you fully restore your bathroom.

    The kits come in different sizes and include: cleaner, sealant, colors, chamois, brushes, and instructions.

     Grout Shield Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner –  This is great at lifting deep stains.

    Grout Shield grout cleaners and sealers are easy to use, and actually get your bathroom tile and grout clean with less effort. You will save time and money with Grout Shield’s grout products.

  • Why Should You Clean Your Grout?

    Why should you clean your grout? It’s simple: dirty grout is unsanitary. Of course, dirty grout lines are also unsightly, but they’re also loaded with germs. Grout is a porous substance, which  easily absorbs liquids, dirt, crumbs, debris, and more. The grout can be loaded with bacteria.

    Your floor grout lines come in contact with so many things including your bare feet, shoes, socks, paw prints, chemicals, food, makeup, and more. If you don’t have a grout sealant and a proper grout cleaner, these grout lines will become stained, and even smell bad! Bacteria and other germs can be living deep in the grout because it hasn’t properly been cleaned.

    To truly clean your grout, you need a proper grout cleaner and sealer. These products will make your grout clean and fresh while restoring it to its original color. You don’t want to have yourself or a loved one come in contact with an unsanitary floor or space. Even the bathroom grout lines can easily absorb and harbor germs, mold, and bacteria. Don’t risk your health! Clean your grout right!

    Dirty grout can be very difficult to clean and keep clean. Every substance is deeply absorbed.  With the right grout cleaner and sealer, this process becomes a lot easier. You can spend less time and money cleaning the grout, and more time enjoying your beautiful home and loved ones.

    So, how should you clean your grout lines? First, sweep the floor to remove any loose dirt or debris on the surface of the tiles and grout. Next, apply Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner. Use a mop to distribute the cleaner over the entire floor. Allow the grout cleaner to saturate into the grout for 10 to 15 minutes, then scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After you scrub the dirt away, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner.

    After you clean the grout with the cleaner, it’s time to use Grout Shield’s sealers to protect the grout from getting dirty, stained and germ-filled again.

    Keep Your Grout Clean

    Cleaning keeps germs away, so you shouldn’t overlook cleaning your grout. After you use Grout Shield’s grout cleaner, ongoing maintenance and restoration is key to keeping these germs at bay. Grout Shield’s grout sealers, as well as our grout Maintenance Cleaner, will keep the floor clean and renewed. To learn more about Grout Shield’s products or to purchase them, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.

  • Get Your Stone and Slate Clean for Summer

     

    Summer is the time for outdoor get togethers, BBQs, pool parties, bonfires, and more! You will be spending a lot of time outside your home, particularly in the backyard, so not only is it important for your landscaping to be looking its best, but your tile work should too! You don’t want your guests stepping on or looking at dirty and dull stone or slate tiles.  You want to properly clean it, so your backyard can look stunning!

    Stone or slate tile work gives your yard a natural, beautiful look. These tiles don’t come cheap, so it makes sense that you care from them properly, so they don’t need to be replaced quickly. Just like regular ceramic tile, stone tile and the grout around it can absorb dirt and liquids, which stain and dull both the tile and grout. Even if its outside in the elements, dirty tiles don’t look good! You should protect your tiles with a proper grout and tile cleaner and grout sealer to keep them looking great throughout the year.

    With stone tile, it’s important to invest in a proper tile cleaner. Many cleaners out there contain ammonia and bleach, which will damage stone. After cleaning away the dirt with a proper grout and tile cleaner, like Grout Shield’s grout and tile cleaner,  you can use a Grout Shield sealer to protect the tile and grout from future dirt and stains. Grout Shield products, like the Enhancer Seal, are safe to use on stone and slate. The Enhancer Seal can make ceramic, slate, terracotta, stone, marble or Mexican tile look vibrant and new. The sealer is extremely easy to use. Grout Shield Color Sealer can enhance the natural beauty of stone tile, as well. This grout color sealer helps bring out the tones within the stone, while protecting the stone at the same time.

    Check out this video below to watch how to use the grout sealer. Notice how well it brightens and restores the surface to its original condition!

  • Switch Out Your Cleaning Product for Grout Shield

     Common household products are great for cleaning so many things in your home from the countertops to the hardwood floors. You’re probably used to using certain, reliable brands that help make your home fresh, clean, and shiny. Unfortunately, most, if not all of these cleaners are not able to truly or thoroughly clean grout. 

    Grout gets dirty just like everything else in your home. In fact, grout probably even gets dirtier. Grout is porous so it easily absorbs anything it comes in contact with. If you clean the grout with regular household cleaners, your grout may never look cleaner. Also, many household cleaners are harsh on the grout.

    When it comes to cleaning grout, the chemicals in a product matter. Different surfaces require different cleaning methods and products. The right maintenance for your grout can be achieved by using grout cleaner and grout sealer by a company like Grout Shield. Grout Shield cleaners have a neutral-pH level that is safe on grout and tile. Grout Shield cleaners help grout lines look renewed and clean. The formula is a non-combustible, fast-aching concentrate.

    Below are some ingredients that are found in most common cleaners that can hurt your grout and tile.

    Bleach – Bleach doesn’t clean anything. Bleach does not contain a cleaning agent. Many bleaches contain sodium hypochlorite, which can disintegrate concrete (main component of most grout).  Your surface may smell clean, but the dirt and germs are still there.

    Ammonia – Ammonia can damage the finish off grout and tile.

    Vinegar and Acidic Cleaners – The acid in vinegar will get rid of the finish and shine on your grout and tile; it can discolor them, as well.

    Grout Shield has a Grout Shield Maintenance Cleaner and a Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner both are great at lifting stains and dirt from the pores in the grout.

    Use Grout Shield Cleaner 

    Don’t waste money or time cleaning with products that are ultimately destroying grout, and not even cleaning it. Grout Shield sells cleaners in a variety of sizes to accommodate different sizes of rooms. Grout Shield’s cleaners are easy to use.

  • Choose the Right Grout Color

    Looking to update your home without spending a fortune? The answer? Color.  Adding pops of color, whether in appliances or decors, can truly transform the look of your home. One color aspect that is often overlooked is the color of the grout that will be on the floor, walls, or back splash your kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, laundry room, or out by the pool.

    Grout has many functions; it locks tiles together; it fills in spaces between stone and tiles; it prevents edges of tiles from chipping and cracking. However, it also is key to the design of a room. The color of a grout can change the whole look and feel of the room. Whether you choose a white or red grout, you can make your room look like you renovated the whole place! We’ve got you covered whether you’re going for modern, vintage, or funky look!

    The grout color should be selected with a purpose in mind; it should not be an afterthought. You have many options with the grout color – you can either match the grout color to the tile, contrast it with the tile, or go with a neutral color. Each one of these choices can create a different look for a room. For example: By matching the colors, the grout line doesn’t show much giving the walls or floor a more seamless, fluid look; the room will look very sleek. If you want your tile to stand out, contrasting the grout color with the tile is the best option. With this option, the grout frames and highlights the tile. For a “safer” choice, many people choose a neutral color (gray, beige, tan) that isn’t too bold and the color matches different styles and colors of tile and everything else in the room.

    At Grout Shield, we can match any color in the world to current grout in your home, or help you find a new color to update any room in your home. Some colors include: haystack, driftwood, rolling fog, winter frost, malt, and more! Check out more of our colors on our grout color page. We can match paint brands like Sherwin Williams, Behr, Martha Stewart, Glidden, Benjamin More, leading grout brands, and more!

    Choosing the Grout Color 

    Grout Shield’s color sealers not only change, brighten, and restore the color of your grout, but they also seal the grout giving it protection against future grime and dirt – so the color will last! A new color can give your room a fresh look! Grout Shield’s color sealer can be used inside and outside of your home. You are also able to go from a dark grout color to a light grout color and vice versa with our products! To purchase, click our  grout color sealer page.

  • Why is My Grout Cracking?

    All is takes is some cracked grout to make your bathroom go from beautiful to grimy. Cracked grout really can make a bathroom look old and dirty. Grout can crack. There are a few reasons why your grout may be cracking, so it’s best you get it inspected by a grout/tile professional to figure out why.  

    Sometimes, grout will crack when there’s too much water mixed into the grout, which create tiny pinholes. When the grout dries, these pinholes make it easier for cracks to form in the grout. Also, too much water in the grout can make the grout weaker. Grout can also crack due to thinset (glue) that is applied over the mortar during installation. If not enough glue was applied, the tile will pull away from the mortar and create air gaps under the tile. The mortar will break, the grout will crack, and tiles will break. If there wasn’t enough glue under the tiles, the tile will become loose. The loosened tile will compromise the grout, which will make it crack and crumble away.

    The cracking could be the result of improper installation or a defect in the floor.

    Also, you want to make sure your room has enough expansion space around the tile. If there isn’t enough space, the walls will put pressure on the tiles, causing both the tiles and grout to crack. Tile should also have proper soft joints and expansion joints to keep movement from happening that causes grout cracking.

    Some cracked grout can easily be replaced, while others may need new tile installation of the entire room re-grouted. Remember, if you don’t have expertise in tile or grout, call someone that does.

    If you have newly installed grout or grout that isn’t protected, it’s time to use a grout sealer to protect the grout from staining and absorbing dirt, water, and other liquids. If you just spent all this time fixing a tile area, you want it to look its best year-round. Grout Shield sealers will keep your grout looking brand new.  If you never used a grout sealer before, you’ll also want to purchase Grout Shield’s  grout and tile cleaner and/or maintenance cleaner to pull out the grime from your grout. To learn more about Grout Shield’s grout sealer and grout cleaners, click our grout cleaner and grout sealer page  or call 1-800-631-0716.
