Grout Rehab: The Permanent Fix for Stained Grout

dirty tile shower detail

If your bathroom is a little lived-in or just a few years old, there’s a good chance the grout around your tile surface is stained, molded, or damaged from normal use. Stained grout discolors your beautiful tile and looks seedy – a designer washroom can appear like a Midwest motel bathroom to guests if your tile is brown and gross.

However, you don’t necessarily need to replace your tile if you’re seeing stains and discoloration. One of the services Strictly Tile offers is Grout Rehab, a complete re-grouting, cleaning, and resealing process that can make even the most stained surfaces look sparkling and brand-new. The grout we use is specialized, high-performance grout that lasts much longer than your typical off-the-shelf grout. It’s stain-proof and compatible with ceramic, stone, and porcelain tiles, ensuring that no matter your surface material, we can shine it up and make it look remarkable again.

Do-it-yourself grout cleaning solutions may remove surface stains and save you a little bit of cash in the short-term, but the reality is grout stains on the surface level often signify a deeper problem like mold or durability issues that need to be treated by a professional. The clean look you get from your vinegar and ammonia cleaning method adds a layer of spit-polish to your bathroom surface, but you’re basically spreading around the stained surface to make it look temporarily more even.

The only way to know for sure that your grout is sealed and working effectively is to bring in an expert who can restore your tile and make sure it’s keeping out water, mold, and mildew. While you probably don’t need us for light discolorations, getting your tile checked out every few years is a good idea – especially if your bathroom isn’t very well ventilated.

Contact Strictly Tile to schedule a grout rehabiliation and maintenance checkup. Don’t risk further damage to your grout!
