Does your outdoor pool look drab? Does it look too dirty to swim in even if the water is clean? Likely, the tile and grout in your pool are dirty from years of dirt and other elements. Outdoor pools are exposed to the elements from sun and sunscreen to dirt, leaves, bugs, skin and food. Pools get dirty fast, especially their grout lines if not sealed.
The grout lines in pool get dirty as the grout you find in a bathroom or kitchen inside a home or business. On pool grout, algae, mold, dirt, and stains can form from moisture and liquids that have collected from rainwater, pool water, and other outdoor elements.
When not properly cared for, a pool’s grout lines can go from bright beautiful colors to dingy, dull lines. Even if you “clean” the area, it can look like you’ve never cleaned if you aren’t using the proper grout cleaner and grout sealer.
You want to invest in quality grout cleaning products that can clean and seal your grout, so you can keep the hotel pool looking clean and new all year round.
Here are some Grout Shield products that can help you renovate your pool and pool area:
The Grout Shield Grout & Tile Deep Cleaner cleans and lifts deep stains out of the grout’s pores. If your grout hasn’t been properly cleaned in a while, use this product! To use this product, mix 1 ounce of the cleaner with 8 ounces of warm water. Then, brush the cleaner into the grout. Leave the mixture to sit into the grout lines for a few minutes. Lastly, wipe away the cleaner with a sponge.
Grout Shield Color Sealer – This product isn’t just a grout sealer, it allows you to match or change the color of the existing kitchen grout without having to remove any of the grout. You can also mix it in with grout to re-grout your tile if needed. This will change the color of the grout, seal, and protect it. With this product, we can match any color possible.
Grout Shield’s Clear Seal – This sealer works just like the color sealer, except it is clear and doesn’t change the color of your grout. This is good to use if you like the color of your grout and it’s bright and new-looking.
Grout Shield Restoration Kit and Packages – A kit or package is the best way to fully restore a kitchen floor or backsplash. Grout Shield offers seven different package kits to help restore the look of grout. Each kit’s contents vary depending of the size of the job that needs to be done. The kits offer everything you need for a full restoration: cleaner, sealant, colors, chamois, brushes, and instructions.
To clean the pool’s grout lines, you need to drain your pool if any grout goes beneath the water. If you only have tile surrounding the pool, you do not need to drain the pool.
Make sure all your grout is dry. Next, sweep away any access debris or dirt that is on the surface of the tiles and grout. Use Grout Shield’s Grout and Tile Cleaner to clean the area. Apply the cleaner to the grout and tile with a mop and let it saturate into the grout lines for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, towel dry the area. After the grout is dry, apply Grout Shield’s clear sealer or color sealer onto the area. A grout sealer will protect your grout for longer, making it harder to get dirty. If you want to change the color of your pool, opt for the color sealer – you can choose any color you want!
Clean and bright tiles and grout can make all the difference in a pool. You don’t have to retile or re-grout your pool to do a renovation. A new grout color might even be enough to make your pool appear brand new! Don’t tear up the grout and tile. A restoration is possible with Grout Shield products.
