Regrouting is a task where the grout lines in between the tiles, floor and wall are removed and then new ones grouted.
The process involves a number of steps which require experienced professionals like CANBERRA TILE RESTORATION. Common areas where regrouting might be required are showers, balconies and heavy traffic areas. It is not a DIY task and if not done properly it can cause a lot of damage including leaking showers and floors. Other side effects of improper regrouting may include efflorescence build up, cracked or falling out grout lines, dislocation of tiles.
Common reasons for regrouting are:
Regrouting is a time consuming process and usually requires the areas not to be used for at least 24 hours after completion. Most common causes for regrouting occurs in shower floors and walls where the grout is exposed to a lot of water and different types of chemicals due to use of shampoo, hair treatments as well as harsh cleaning chemicals like bleach. In case of a leaking shower, just sealing the tiles and grout might not solve the problem completely. The old grout must be removed; the lines must be cleaned, regrouted with new grout then sealed with appropriate sealer. Same rules apply to any leaking or efflorescence affected area./p>
