Frequently Asked Questions
Do you regrout using grout colors other than white?
Yes, there are a range of grout colors to choose from.
What is tile cleaning?
Tiles just like any other part of a house goes through wear and tear over time & will need a good cleaning. However professional tile cleaning is much more advanced than what we picture as cleaning. Professional tile cleaners use special equipment, machines and techniques to quickly and efficiently clean tiles so that your tiles & house will look as new.
Should I regrout or retile?
Regrout If your grout is moldy / discolored / cracked decayed, the tiles themselves are in good condition. You are happy with color of tiles.
Can’t you just clean my shower to get rid of the mold?
No, once the mold has penetrated the grout the only way to get rid of it is to remove the existing grout, then replace it. All the cleaning in the world will only remove the mold from the surface of the grout and the mold will simply redevelop from the inside out. Further, cleaning the grout with harsh chemicals and cleaners such as bleach actually decay the grout over time, making the grout more porous and encouraging further mold development.
Can you clean tile grout without chemicals ?
This is tricky! Technically we can use natural cleaning agents such as baking soda and lime. But it wont actually get the result you want. Ofcourse those natural substances are great for day to day cleaning but not for professional cleaning.
Will sealing the grout in my shower stop mold developing?
The short answer is No. Sealing your grout will help to protect the grout and also make it easier to clean but it does not change the environment. A shower / bathroom is obviously a wet area, with high levels of humidity – the perfect environment for mold to flourish. The best steps you can take to prolong the life of your grout and prevent mold build up are to use a quality grout with an anti-mold additive, seal the new grout, keep the area as well ventilated as possible and avoid the use of harsh chemicals and cleaners.
Why do I have to leave my shower dry prior to re-grouting and how long for?
On average, you will be asked to leave your shower dry for 24 hours before and after regrouting. It is important the shower is left dry in order to ensure you achieve the best possible results. Excess moisture in the shower can lead to a condition know as bleed back which can lead to discoloration of your new grout.
