Why is my grout becoming so discolored? It’s probably due to a lack of grout sealant.
Grout sealing will protect your grout from discoloring agents being able to penetrate its porous surface. But how long should you wait between applications of grout sealant?
At The Grout Medic of Dallas – Fort Worth, we believe that your tile and grout could always look better. Whenever we clean tile and grout, we always ensure that there’s a protective sealant applied after we’ve cleaned the surface. There’s a very simple reason for doing this – your grout will quickly become discolored if you fail to properly seal it. While a lot of grout sealants on the market claim to be rated for twenty years, we don’t recommend waiting for quite that long before you have your grout cleaned and re-sealed. Once we’ve cleaned and sealed your grout, we still recommend that you have your grout re-sealed once every two years. This will ensure that your grout remains protected from dirt, dust, and grime, which are all common discoloring agents for any grout.
I just bought a brand new home in Dallas. Did the builders seal my grout?
In our experience, new homes that are being built do not have the home’s grout sealed and protected. While you may assume that your grout is sealed, seeing as your home was just recently built, you may also encounter severely discolored grout within just a few months, especially in your shower or bathroom area. The reason your shower grout becomes so quickly discolored is that the minerals in your water combined with soap, shampoo, conditioner, and more all penetrate your shower grout. This will lead to a buildup of soap scum, as well as the ever-present moisture. All of these will combine to rather quickly discolor your shower grout. We see it quite frequently.
