Las Vegas Tile and Grout Cleaning

Grout Repair May Not be the best choice at first…


Several calls come every day regarding grout repair as most are wondering whether now is the appropriate time. Advice is usually different for each project. Calls come to us from brand spanking new home move-ins to homes that have been lived in for more than 10 years. Most are concerned with some areas of their floors where the grout is breaking up, completely black grout lines, as well as hairline cracks. In almost all situations the first call should be made to a professional grout cleaning service so they may get the grout to a true/natural color (tile and grout cleaning service) for grout repair to be done properly. As well as find possibly different areas where other issues of the grout that will need to be repaired as well. Especially larger areas of tile and grout, and at certain times of the day, floors change color and look different. If more than 10% of your grout is damaged or missing, then I’ll recommend grout repair first (this is rare).  There are many houses we see that have had grout repair, and actually re-grouted with a totally different color (usually darker). This is because the darker grout was used as the existing grout color when re-grouting took place. Now you’re left with eye sores (like salt and pepper), and now wonder what can be done…2 choices I recommend is complete tear-out, or tear out the grout and repair with matching colored grout. A tile and grout cleaning cannot change the color of grout, however, can clean the surface of the grout and return it 85-95% back to its original condition when first laid. Don’t ask unqualified people about what you should do first, ask a qualified Professional Tile Cleaning Service as they typically know the business and see multiple issues over and over again.
