Grout ReColouring

Say “Goodbye” to Grubby Grout…

Grout is a porous substance. One of the most common complaints with tiled floors is discolouration of the grout between the tiles – meaning the floors never look clean.

Enter grout recolouring. After thoroughly cleaning the tiled floor area, an epoxy based colourant is applied to the grout joints, giving a consistent appearance and also sealing the grout to prevent future staining.

The epoxy sealant is available in a variety of colours to suit most decors and has an 8+ year life expectancy against peeling, chipping, cracking or fading. You will not believe how good this product is!

This service is particularly popular for high traffic areas (ie, kitchen and bathroom floors) where years of daily traffic have resulted in heavy soiling and discolouration of the grout.

Grout Sealing – Stainguarding

Protect your investment, prevent Grubby Grout…

A premium penetrating sealer is applied to the grout joints providing resistance to water, oil and general contaminants. This service is highly recommended for newly grouted or regrouted floors and is also very popular for kitchen splash-backs and bathroom wet areas.

Stainguarding does not alter the appearance of the grout (hence no before and after pics!), the sealer is invisible to the naked eye, sitting just below the surface. It prevents contaminants from penetrating into the grout pores.

Especially useful in wet areas like showers, Stainguarding will help to prevent the growth of mould and mildew and simplify cleaning and maintenance of the area.

Total TileCare has the solution to meet your grout maintenance needs.

Grout Sealing – FAQs

What guarantee do you offer with stainguarding?

No guarantees are applicable to stainguarding. Expected wear will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency and type of maintenance products used. It is important to realise that a sealer is not an impenetrable barrier – it provides reaction time to deal with spills. Unsealed grout can stain immediately, whereas sealed grout is stain resistant and can have a reaction time of up to 4-5 hours.

 
What guarantee do you offer with the Epoxy Colourant?

Likewise, no guarantees are applicable to epoxy colourant. The colourant has an 8 year life expectancy against peeling, chipping, cracking or fading. Expected wear will vary depending on hardness and texture of surface, type of area, surface wear, frequency and type of maintenance products used.

 
What products do you use?

We use premium sealers from leading industry suppliers including Spirit and Aquamix products as appropriate.

 
Does stainguarding / recolouring my grout make it maintenance free?

No, grout requires regular maintenance and anyone that tells you otherwise is either lying or misinformed! If you have your carpet Scotchguarded™ you would not assume that you have to vacuum less frequently, likewise if you have your grout sealed (stainguarded or recoloured) do not assume that you have to clean / maintain it less frequently! Grout is often the lowest point on a tiled surface which results in dirt, grime and other contaminants collecting there – particularly in high traffic areas / walk ways. Regular and thorough cleaning with the correct products and equipment will be required to keep grout looking good.

 
How do I maintain my grout after it has been stainguarded / recoloured?

The technician who carries out your grout sealing will be able to offer maintenance advice specific to your tiled area. In all cases, avoid the use of harsh chemicals which will decrease the life expectancy of the sealers.

    • Stainguarded Grout – We recommend regular cleaning with a PH neutral cleaner or a microfibre cloth.
    • Recoloured Grout – As a general rule, we recommend the use of a mild cleaner (such as Spirit “Neutral Cleaner”), at least weekly, to maintain your recoloured grout and tiled floors. Tiles with a textured surface may benefit from the use of a doodlebug rather than a mop for a more effective clean.

Also, when mopping, make sure to change your water frequently, otherwise all you achieve is to spread dirty water around your floors!
