  • Common Myths About Cleaning Grout

    cleaning groutgrout cleaner


    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.

  • Dirty Grout Can Make Your Home Smell

    dirty grout



    Have you noticed a funky smell in your home lately? Most likely, you’ve mopped the floors, gotten the carpets cleaned, lit candles, washed appliances, furniture, the bathroom, and clothing, yet the smell won’t go away. You know you’re a clean person, so why does your home have a smell that won’t go away? Believe it or not, the culprit could be your grout lines in your kitchen or bathroom. Just like a carpet, grout absorbs anything it comes in contact with. This means it’s holding on to all sorts of bacteria that can emit smells into the air. In fact, a study showed that at least nine different species of bacteria have been found in tile floors, most of which came off people’s shoes!


     

    Grout is porous, which is why it absorbs dirt, debris, and liquids so easily. Because it’s porous, it also is more prone to staining. If your grout looks dirty, then there is definitely a chance the smell in your home can be coming from the tile floor. The smell could be from pet urine, dirt, spilled coffee, or a number of other things that could have gotten on the floor. Unlike a carpet or hard wood floor, ridding grout lines of stains and smells by scrubbing and mopping isn’t as easy. Most cleaners don’t truly clean the grout or get rid of stains.


     

    Instead of spending hours scrubbing your grout lines or spending endless money on trying to clean your home, the best thing you can do is invest in a product that is dedicated to specifically cleaning and sealing grout lines. Grout Shield has grout cleaners and sealers that absorb into the grout and easily remove away stains, dirt, and anything else that’s been clinging onto your grout lines. Grout Shield offers a Grout & Tile Cleaner, a Maintenance Cleaner, a Clear Seal, a Color Seal, and an Enhancer Seal. Grout Shield’s cleaners and sealers come in different size bottles, so you are able to clean rooms that are 250 square feet up to 6,000 square feet.


     

    Grout Shield’s cleaners and sealers are easy to use, and will protect your grout line from smelling again in the future. If you’re tired of coming home to a funky smelling house, it’s time to clean that grout! To purchase Grout Shield grout restoration products, click here or call 1-800-631-0716.


  • DIY Grout Restoration

    diy grout restoration

    Believe it or not, grout lines can make or break the look of a room in your house. Dirty or cracked grout can make people think your bathroom isn’t clean, or that your kitchen hasn’t been kept up in decades. Instead of massively renovating over tile floors, tubs, walls, counters, or pool areas in your home, you can do a quick cleaning, sealing, and repair job on the grout lines – this will not only save you thousands of dollars, but it’ll save you from quite the headache as well! By knowing how to fix your grout yourself and what cleaning products to use, you can have a practically brand-new looking home!

     

    To repair grout on your own, here are a few simple steps to take to fix it without hiring a professional:

     

    • --Buy a grout that matches your current grout (or as close as possible)
    • --Remove any loose or broken grout by using a grout saw.
    • --Clean the grout lines where you removed the damaged grout with some cold water and towel dry.
    • --Follow the grout instructions to prepare the mixture
    • --Fill the lines with the grout and make sure the grout is level and straight. To do this, you use a grout float.
    • --Clean the tiles with a sponge from any of the grout that may have gotten on them by accident.

     

     

    To clean the current grout, one it is all dried and in place, use Grout Shield’s Grout & Tile Cleaner. This cleaner will remove any excess dirt or grease from the old or new grout you just placed down. This cleaner will also clean and remove any previous sealer that was on the grout. After the area is done being cleaned and has had time to dry, apply Grout Shield’s Clear Seal. This clear seal can be applied to seal new or older tile and grout installations. By properly sealing your grout, it will prevent it from getting stained or discolored.

     

    If you’re thinking about fixing up and cleaning the tile in your home, purchasing Grout Shield products will make your grout look brand new again. Grout Shield even offers color options for its grout sealers if you decide you want to give a room an entirely different look.

  • Clean Mold in the Bathroom the Easy Way

    mold mold


    People spend a lot of time in the bathroom, so good hygiene in this area is important. The bathroom is a high moisture area, so germs and bacteria thrive in there. To keep a bathroom clean, people need to regularly clean the toilet, sink, floor, shower, and tub. However, many cleaners still leave the bathroom not looking shiny and new. Many cleaners wipe away germs on the surface, but the area looks like it hasn’t been cleaned at all. Why? Because the grout is stained!


    Layers of dirt, mold, mildew, and soap have built up over time and seeped deep into the pours of the grout. So no matter how much scrubbing or soap you use, your bathroom will never fully look clean!


    With Grout Shield products, people don’t have to deal with the sight of discolored and stained grout in their bathroom any longer. A clean bathroom can actually LOOK clean. Besides dirt and stains, mold is a big problem and culprit of discolored grout in bathrooms. Mold is unhealthy and should be removed immediately; however, it can be hard to remove from the grout. With Grout Shield Grout and Tile Cleaner, people are able to remove dirt and mold easily from any area in the bathroom. This cleaner also will remove any previous applied grout sealer allowing this product to bond to the grout and actually clean the area.


    After scrubbing away all the mold, mildew, and other dirt out of the grout, the next step is to apply a sealer so it’ll be harder for these things to build up in the grout again. Grout Shield sealers are able to resist mold and mildew. While sealing, a person also has the option to change the color of the grout at this time. Grout Shield’s sealers come in both clear and color options.


    Purchasing Grout Cleaner and Sealer

  • All About Grout

    grout

     

    You have grout in your kitchen. You have grout in the shower. You have grout out at the pool. But, what exactly is grout? And what’s its purpose? Grout is a porous, cement or epoxy-based material that locks tiles together to keep out water; it fills in spaces between stone and tiles, which also gives the surface a better finished look. Grout makes floors, walls, counter tops, etc., stronger by bonding the tiles together. Grout also helps prevent the edges of tiles from chipping.

     

    The tiles are usually the star of the show, but grout often becomes noticed when it becomes dirty. All types of grout require maintenance from time to time.  Fortunately, Grout Shield cleaners can clean all types. Here are some details about different types of grout:

     

    Sanded grout – This grout contains fine sand; it is most often used for seams 1/8” and wilder.
    Unsanded grout – This grout is usually used for seams less than 1/8” wide. This is a smooth blend of cement and powdered pigments mixed with water.

     

    Epoxy grout – This type of grout can be both sanded in unsanded; it is resistant to most stains and chemicals, because it includes a hardener and an epoxy resin. It is usually used for tiles ½” or less. This grout is best used for heavily trafficked or exposed areas.

     

    Grout also comes in an endless number of colors. Homeowners can choose whether they want their grout to contrast with the tile, be the same color as the tile, or just be a neutral color. The choice of the color is completely dependent on the tastes of the homeowner.

     

    Cleaning and Restoring Grout
    Despite years of grim build up, it is likely most tile can be restored, and doesn’t have to be replaced. With the proper cleaners and sealers, grout can look new and future stains can be prevented or at least not affect the grout as badly as before. Grout Shield’s products can easily restore soiled grout lines to a “like new” appearance.

  • Grout Shield Testimonials

    UntitledThis is the third time I've purchased this item. The first was to do a bathroom shower enclosure in our older home, to get it ready to put on the market. The results: outstanding! It made a 30 year old tile job look absolutely brand new!We recently moved to a brand new home and saw how quickly the grout starts to get 'dirty' on a new grout bathroom floor (that wasn't sealed), so I purchased the second batch to seal the grout from new: perfection! ...so then I bought it a third time to do our Master Bathroom floor...totally awesome!I would highly recommend this great product.

  • Grout Shield Customer Reviews

    I did my aunt's tiles with this product and what a difference. She actually wanted to remove the tiles because she could not get the grout clean. She paid Stanly Steamer $400 to clean and seal and after a few months they looked the same. I did her floors and they look beautiful. It's very easy to apply a little tedious but well worth the outcome. I did have a small problem though. We did her kitchen and loved it so much we ordered another bottle to do the family room that connects to the kitchen. We did not realize that it was a lighter color until we got to where the two rooms met. the bottle was mislabeled. I called the company and Mike the owner was very pleasant and sent me another bottle of the correct color at no charge. If you hate your grout you will not be disappointed. Works wonders on renewing your floor! Also the cleaner it comes with in the kit is amazing...

  • Grout Cleaning And Sealing Your Bathroom

    What does the tile in your bathroom say about you?

     

    There is no place in your home where the appearance of cleanliness, or the lack thereof, has more impact than in the bathroom! No matter how beautiful your bathroom tile is, if it is surrounded by dirty, stained grout it is going to raise troubling questions in the minds of those that see it. Everyone knows that grout, due to it's porous texture, has a tendency to absorb anything that is spilled on it.

    Grout Shields Color Seal returns grout to "like new" condition and establishes a barrier protecting it from stains and dirt in the future!

    Grout Shield products are affordable, easy to use, and come in a wide variety of colors. Not only can you browse the GroutShield Color chart, but, we are also able to blend custom colors from most major brands of residential paint color charts as well. While paint is significantly different from grout sealer in chemical composition, it responds quite similarly to the pigments that give paint it's coloration.

     

    The fresh look of sealed colorized grout will establish your bathroom area as the standard to which all who see it will try to keep up with. When people realize how their tile and grout look, as compared to those treated with Grout Shield products, they will never view their own floors, and tiled surfaces, in quite the same way again.

     

    From the time you notice you have dirty grout ... every time you look at your floor ... dirty grout is all you wil see!
