  • Don’t Forget to Seal Your Grout!

    grout sealer

    You just had your bathroom floor retiled. It looks perfect! You definitely want it to look this way forever. As the contractor finishes, you ask him if it needs to be sealed. There is a chance he may say, “No,” and there are a few reasons for this. One, he may have used an epoxy-based grout, which is a water-resistant material that doesn’t require a sealer. He may have used a grout that has a sealer in it. He may just personally feel the grout doesn’t need to be sealed. He may not feel like coming back. Or, he may tell you it needs to be sealed, but not yet.

    You DO want to seal the grout. But after an installation, it is best to wait a bit to put a sealer on the area. You want to allow the new grout to cure 48 to 72 hours before sealing. Right before you seal, double check the entire area and make sure none of the grout lines aren’t cracked or compromised in any way.

    The short time it takes to apply a grout sealer is something worth investing in. It’s a simple job. If you don’t apply a sealer, you run the risk of mold living in the grout or discolored and stained grout lines. That new bathroom floor you just had done? It could easily look old in a matter of days if not properly sealed. One small spill can ruin the entire look of the room.

    The bathroom is home to so many different liquids and dirt that can compromise your grout, including: mud, water, mouthwash, toothpaste, makeup, perfume, and soap. By sealing your grout, you will preserve the color of the grout from these products. The grout sealer soaks into the grout creating a barrier against anything that comes in contact with the grout.

    Depending on how much foot traffic goes on in your bathroom, you’ll want to reseal the area every six to 12 months.

     

    Sealing grout is important. If you don’t, dirt and liquid stains may become permanent, and all that money and time that went into your bathroom floor was for, essentially nothing. Grout Shield sells grout sealers are penetrating sealers designed to revitalize and protect grout.  To learn more about these grout sealers, click here or call 1-800-631-0716 for pricing estimates and more information.

  • Why It's Important to Clean Grout

    clean grout  clean grout

    Dirty grout doesn’t just look bad; it also isn’t very sanitary. Grout easily collects moisture, dirt, crumbs, bacteria, and basically absorbs anything it comes in contact with. Think of all the things that could possibly touch your grout: shoes, pets, food, water, poisonous chemicals, makeup, and more.

     

    Grout is porous, which is how it is able to absorb things it comes in contact with. Since it’s collecting all of this dirt, liquids, and water, it becomes a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Even though you mop and scrub your floors and walls meticulously, bacteria can still thrive in the grout, because it’s been so deeply absorbed.

     

    A grout cleaner and sealer are the best solutions to getting rid of unsanitary and unsightly grout. You definitely don’t want to be walking on all those germs, or having your little child touching tiles and putting that bacteria into their mouth. All of the dirt within the grout can be very difficult to clean and keep clean. But with the ride grout cleaner and sealer, this process becomes a lot easier. You can spend less time cleaning the grout to restore it to a “like new” appearance.

     

    Since there are so many ways bacteria can land onto kitchen floor grout, we will explain the best way to de-germ this room’s grout. First, sweep the floor to remove any loose dirt or crumbs 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, ten scrub the area with a grout or bristle brush. After you scrub the dirt away with a few brushstrokes, use a clean rag to wipe away any remaining grout cleaner.

     

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

     

    Keep that Grout Clean

    Keeping your grout clean is a great way to keep germs and sickness out of your home. Every time someone touches dirty grout, germs are spreading. After you use Grout Shield’s cleaner, ongoing maintenance and restoration is key to keeping these germs at bay. Grout Shield’s sealers, as well as our Maintenance Cleaner, will keep the floor clean and renewed.

  • 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. To learn more about Grout Shield’s products, click here or call 239-768-6809 or 1-800-631-0716 to learn what to purchase.



  • Great Review! - WOW! Worked on paint stained grout!

    Several years ago I dropped a whole half gallon of paint on my tile floor! The paint easily removed from the tile itself, but it stained the light grout. I had it professional cleaned and scrubbed the grout with bleach and any cleaner I could think of....it was still stained. When I saw this Grout Restoration kit, I really didn't think it would do much, but what the heck. HOLEY MOLEY! PERFECT! I used the cleaner as directed and then the grout color. My floor is perfect again! THANK YOU!!!!

  • Wow Great Review Useing Grout Shield Color Seal

    I was not sure this product would do what it says it will do, DOES IT EVER! My ugly grout looks brand new. It looks so good, I keep looking at it in amazement. I have lived with my ugly grout for 3 years. I can not remember ever being so impressed with a product. This stuff does EXACTLY what they say it will do. For less than thirty dollars and a few hours of simple work I have beautiful floors. Thank you to the inventor of this simple solution. I am not a review writer, however I had to give some love to this stuff. WELL DONE.

  • 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...
