Grout Application and Removal
This is another area where numerous online guides and videos will tell you how easy these jobs are to do yourself. And, to be perfectly honest, it is probably the easiest of any tile installation related task for someone to do themselves. But, as with anything like this, it is also very easy to get wrong and to end up with costly errors to fix. That’s why we always recommend using a professional tile installer for all stages of your tile installation, including grout installation and grout removal.
If you have tiled surfaces in your bathroom or on kitchen countertops, you will notice that over time they can appear discoloured or damaged. Regrouting is a cheaper option than replacing the entire tiled surface. Another issue with tiled surfaces in these areas is that mold or mildew may build up, which can cause health issues if left untreated. Our licensed tile installers can use professional tools and substances to remove all the grout round your tiles then replace with new grout. This gives the whole area a new lease of life and, if the tiles themselves have been well maintained, then the area can look as good as new.
Caulk or Grout?
Professionals will normally use caulk instead of grout when there is a difference in the backing surface. This can be in areas like the joint between floors and wall joints. As these areas move in different ways, caulk is the better choice. But in some cases, our team will use grout instead. Caulk needs more maintenance than grout, it also may be used if the caulk does not match the surrounding grout color. You will also find that mildew or mold is more likely to develop on caulked areas than on grouted surfaces. Our team will advise you on which substance is best for your circumstances.
There are a number of chemical solutions to enable grout removal. Many of these are dangerous chemicals and require the use of some protective equipment. Our professional staff have all received specialist safety training in using these chemicals and the require equipment. We will assess the area where grout needs removed and will then advise on the best chemical solution to use for those circumstances. Where the surrounding surface is delicate, we will use special chemicals that do not cause any damage.
