  • 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.

  • WILL GROUT SHIELD COLOR SEAL WORK ON ALL GROUT

    The answer to this questions is yes;

    We often get the question whether Grout Shield color seal will work on all types of grout like sanded and un-sanded grout and epoxy grouts.

    Now the difference between these grout are easy to figure out sanded grout will have a grit to it and will always be used on floors or counter tops. Where un-sanded grout is normally used on or in shower and tub enclosures.

    The Grout Shield color seal will make all types of grout uniformed in color and will resist mold and mildew in high moisture areas. Now on epoxy grouts as long as there is a grit to the epoxy grout, Grout Shield products will adhere to the grout. If the epoxy is smooth like glass the color seal will have to bond for 48 hrs before water use but in 20 min can be walk on in any other application.
