Grout Repair Services
Tile RegroutingOld, damaged, or missing grout makes the most beautiful tile look ugly. It can also cause structural damage to your home.
Regrouting is the process of removing the old, non-sanded grout and installing new grout and caulk in an installation. (In most cases, it is not recommended for sanded grout.)
Grout Repair / Tile Repair
The Grout Doctor ® has the cure for this ugly, cracked, and stained floor grout.
Cracked grout in a floor is more than unsightly. If not treated, it can cause damage to the floor's underlayment and possibly create the need for costly replacement of the entire floor.
Does your grout do this?
Spills on your grout should bead and not be absorbed into the grout. If spills do not bead, your grout needs to be sealed.
After thoroughly cleaning your grout, we apply Grout Doctor ® Sealer. Our premium Grout Doctor ® Sealer will protect your grout by repelling and minimizing discoloration from dirt, acids, and grime. A sealer does not make grout stain proof. It does inhibit penetration of substances that may discolor the grout.
The best time to have your grout sealed is after one of our professional services or if your tiled area is brand new. Over time, harsh cleaners can destroy the sealant making it necessary to re-apply periodically.
Does your grout still look dirty and show traffic patterns even after scrubbing?
The Grout Doctor ® has the cure for that!
After thoroughly cleaning your grout, we can apply a pigmented sealer. This process is called grout recoloring. With recoloring you can change the color of your grout to a lighter or darker color or match the original color.
Grout Recoloring will give new life to your existing tile and grout!
Improperly installed products, poor ventilation, and improper cleaning and maintenance are the primary causes of unsightly mold in bathroom areas.
Routinely replacing the caulking can:
- Prevent health issues caused by mold
- Prevent water from leaking outside of your tiled area
- Drastically improve or completely change the look of an existing tub, shower, sink or backsplash
The caulk used in your bathroom and/or kitchen protects the wall behind it and the sub-floor below it from water damage. It is a good practice to periodically replace old caulk and recaulk joints between the tiles and your tub, shower, sink, or any place two planes of tile or two different construction products come together. Recaulking should be added to your annual or semi-annual bathroom maintenance checklist.
Another good reason to recaulk is to remove the black mold that sometimes grows in and behind the caulking. Properly installed caulk can be damaged by improperly scrubbing it or incorrectly using a squeegee. Damaged caulk allows moisture to have an open path to substructures and promotes the growth of mold.
