Cost Effective Way of Renovating Bathroom Tiles & Grout
[separator top=”-55″ bottom=”10″ style=””]
Everyone that owns a home will eventually need to have a look at having the bathroom renovated, but this can be a very costly time consuming process and not to mention the dust from having to have all the tiles ripped up.
Steam Clean Tile and Grout to Save Money
So instead of replacing the tiles and grout, why not have them steam cleaned and then the grout lines re-coloured. This process is done in half the time and with very little mess.
When having a professional tile and grout clean done to a bathroom, it’s important to clean them with a strong acidic cleaning solution that will get the surface dirt out of the grout lines before the grout colour is applied. Once the cleaning has been completed, the grout can have the re-colouring done. This will give the bathroom a whole new look.
After the cleaning and before the re-colouring, some areas of grout may need to be re-done. All the old silicone is also removed and then later new silicone put back inn. With the mould that grows over the silicone the only way to fully remove it is to replace it. In some cases, the mould may come off, but if it doesn’t then the only way is to replace it using a good quality bathroom silicone sealer.
Steam cleaning tiles will not only clean them but will also kill any bacteria that have formed over the surface. Bacteria will build up over time in any bathroom and this is when a professional tile and grout clean is needed.
The cleaning solution is applied and left to sit on the surface for about 20-30 minutes, depending on how dirty the tiles are. On wall tiles, the cleaning solution is put on neat. This will help it to stick to the surface and not just fall off onto the floor tiles.
This process is great for home owners and also for landlords wanting to renew the bathroom in a cost effective way.
There are many different types of tiles on the market today such as ceramic, polished porcelain, terracotta, but the most common one found in homes is still the ceramic tile. This is because it is a relatively cheap tile to buy and very long lasting with little maintenance. If you have ceramic tiles, it may pay in the long run to have the grout lines sealed with a permanent sealer to stop staining and mould from forming. This is a very good idea in wet areas such as bathrooms. But it is best to be done from day one, or permanent water marks will eventually start to form through the gout. If this occurs the only way to resolve it is to have the grout either replaced or re-coloured.
Restore Tiles Instead of Replacing Them
