Why Your St. Louis, MO, Grout is Changing Color and How to Fix it
Did your tile’s grout use to be a completely different color? For example, did you originally have white or grey grout, and now it appears brown and dirty? If so, it’s most likely from heavy foot traffic and mopping. Yes, you read that correctly – mopping your tiled floor or surfaces can actually cause your grout to become discolored. How? Well, if you don’t completely remove all of the existing dust, dirt, and grime from your tile prior to mopping it, you’re simply pushing all of those discoloring agents, along with moisture from the mop, deep down into your grout. All of these factors will undoubtedly leave your grout looking old, dirty, and dingy. Luckily, this is specifically what we specialize in at The Grout Medic of St. Louis.
We use a low-pressure, high-heat steam cleaner to safely remove all of the discoloring agents from your grout. Remember, it takes a deep cleaning process to force those years and years of dirt and grime buildup to be effectively removed. Once your grout’s been cleaned, you need to allow it to dry, which we do. After it’s dried, we’ll then seal it to keep it looking great for years to come. Furthermore, we can even completely change the appearance of your grout and tile by way of tile grout color sealing. A lot of our clients think that we paint grout in order to change its color – we highly recommend not doing this and we do not. We utilize a custom-colored grout color sealant that will transform your grout and keep it looking great.
No matter how far gone your tile and grout appear to be, why not get a second opinion before completely replacing it? Tile and grout cleaning is a much less expensive option and can really bring your tiled surfaces back to life. At The Grout Medic of St. Louis, we specialize in bringing tile and grout back to life. We offer all new customers a 100% free consultation and can perform a spot check on all of your tiled surfaces to check for any areas in need of immediate repair (i.e. re-caulking your shower, bathtub, or sink).
