Problems Solved: Stained Grout and what to do about it.
Grout can be protected from stains, mineral deposits and mildew by cleaning up spills and debris promptly and with regular maintenance. Certain grout products such as latex or acrylic additives in the grout mix can help reduce stains but the best protection overall is to seal your grout- as well as your tile. Like waxing your car, you’re applying an outer layer of protection over your investment.
When grout has been stained and discolored there are some options you might want to consider:
1.) CLEANING -Try cleaning the stains with warm water and a mild detergent using a Scotch-Brite pad and some elbow grease. If this doesn’t work try a stone and grout sealer. This product also cleans the grout stains you’re trying to get rid of.
2.) GROUT SEALER - sometimes you can hide stains and calcium deposits by simply sealing your grout. We recommend a professional grout sealerfwhich should apply easy and restore the grout to its’ original look, while uniforming the color and protecting the grout at the same time.
3.) GROUT COLORANT - If your grout is stained and discolored but still appears intact and level with no missing chunks, this option might be the answer. We sell a leading brand Grout Colorant from Colorfast Industries that once applied, also seals and protects sanded or non-sanded grout. We offer the colorant in all the major tile grout colors
