  • 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.


  • Why Does Grout Crack



    Unfortunately, grout can crack. Cracked grout is unsightly and can make your beautiful, finished bathroom or kitchen turn look old and unkempt. Why is this happening? If you want to truly find out why your grout is cracking, it’s best to get the area inspected; however, there are few common reasons as to why the grout is cracking in your home.

    One reason that cracked grout happens is because of a weak grout structure. When too much liquid/water is in the grout mix, it causes tiny pinholes in the grout; after the grout dries, the grout is more susceptible to cracking because of these little holes. Cement also has to be at the “perfect” hydration level for the grout to be strong; too much water can make the grout weaker.

    Another reason grout can crack is because of a thinset (glue) that’s applied over the mortar during installed. If not enough glue was applied, it will pull the tile away from the mortar and create air gaps under the tile. This will result in broken pieces of mortar, cracked grout, and broken tiles. If there isn’t enough glue beneath the tile, the tile will loosen over time, even by simply walking on it. When you walk on it, the tile will move up and down, which will also make the surrounding grout start to crack and crumble.

    The reasons above show how cracked grout can be the result of improper installation; however overall, the major reason grout can crack is because the tile is moving. There could be a deflection in the flooring for the type of tile you have, or there has been trauma to the area.

    If there is no expansion space around the perimeter of the tiled space, the walls will put pressure on the tile causing the tiles and grout to crack. You also need to make sure your tile has proper soft joints and expansion joints to prevent improper movement from happening that will result in grout cracking.

    To fix cracked grout or improperly installed tiles and grout, you need to remove and properly install new tile; then, you can re-grout the floor. If it’s only one small area, you might not have to do over the entire floor or wall, but it’s best to get the area assessed.

    Once the area has been repaired, make sure the grout is recessed (lying below the edge of the tiles). After the tile and grout are properly installed, 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.

  • 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.

  • A Grout Shield Restoration Kit Can Help You Make Your Bathroom Grout Look Like New With Little Work


    If the grout in your bathroom is becoming old and discolored, then you may think that your only option is to have the grout completely replaced. This would be very expensive to have professionally done, and re-grouting it yourself would take many hours and lots of careful practice. A grout shield restoration kit can allow you to leave your existing grout in place while making it look like new grout. You can restore your grout to bright white even when it has turned an unsightly grey color.


    A grout shield restoration kit is very affordable, and one kit can be used on all of the grout in your bathroom with some left to spare. You can use the kit to return once-white grout to its original bright white color, even if it has years of discoloration. You can also purchase a kit in a new color to turn your grout into a color that complements your bathroom tile even more than your existing grout. When you apply this product properly, it can be used to color and seal your grout to keep the color in place. You should always be sure to clean your grout and the areas surrounding it carefully first to get the best results from the grout shield restoration kit.

  • Grout Shield Kits Make Your Tile Look New

    Tile makes a great floor covering. Tile is durable, easy to clean, and doesn’t show wear like wood or carpet. However, sometimes in high traffic areas, you may notice that your tile grout has become discolored. Small specks of dirt become embedded in the grout, causing it to darken over time. Using grout shield kits is a great way to preserve and protect your tile grout.


    Grout shield kits allow you to change the color of your existing grout while protecting it with a sealer. You can go from a light colored grout to dark color. You can even change black grout to white using grout shield kits. No more scraping and sanding to remove old grout. The high quality grout sealer ensures that your grout will maintain the new color, even in high traffic areas. If you have new tile grout, you can use a clear sealer to protect it and keep it looking new. If you like the color of your existing grout, you can use an enhancing sealer that will bring out the original color tones and make your grout look new again.


    Grout shield kits are not just for tile floors, either. You can use grout shield to protect grout on countertops, back-splashes, and bathtub and shower surrounds. Protecting your tile grout will make your tile look new and enhance the beauty of your home.

    Once the area has been repaired, make sure your grout joints are recessed. This means that the grout should be lying below the edge of your tiles or indented. If the grout joints are not recessed you can recess them using a flat head screw driver.  Just run the screw driver back and forth to scrape away some of the grout. You can also visit your local home improvement store and purchase a grout removal tool.

  • 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.
