One of the most important procedures that you should undertake to make your floor look new is tile grout repair. You find that after some time they will become dirty and unattractive due to accumulation of dirt. Grout repair is something that is not that complicated as you can do it yourself or some people may hire some experts to help them. In this text we are going to cover the steps that are followed in tile grout repair without hiring a professional.
Before anything, you should buy the grout. You should make sure that you buy the grout that is currently use on the floor. Apart from that, when changing the color of the grout you should try and make it almost similar to the one you are replacing to create that uniformity.
This should be followed by removal of loose and damaged grout. In this case, you will use the grout saw by running it back and forth along the seams. You should also do it with a lot of care not to damage the tiles.
After removing the loose and damaged grout, you should clean the seams. You should use a spray bottle and cold water to wet the seams where you have removed the grout. After softening the seams, you should then take a brush and use it to scrub the grout that you freed using the grout saw. When you are done with scrubbing, you should wipe the excess water and grout using an old towel or rag.
You should follow this by mixing the tile grout. In this case, you will be guided by the instruction on the bag of tile grout that you bought. It is important to read and understand all the instructions given. Apart from that, you can use some plastic container that you may dispose later in mixing the grout.
Then, you spread the grout. In this case, you will have to use the grout float in filling all the seams completely to make sure that the grout is leveled. After that you will realize that the grout that is used in other tiles does match with yours where you are advised to use the edge of the grout float to put them in the same level.
After that you should use a sponge to clean the tiles in sections to remove the excess grout as you go. It is necessary that you do it immediately since the grout may dry up and be hard to clean.
You should finish the repair process by polishing the tiles. Wait for the tiles to dry and take a soft towel and use it to buff the tiles where the grout was applied.
