How Do You Regrout Ceramic Tile Bathrooms?
Grout is important to ceramic tiled bathrooms, as it not only fills in the gaps between the tiles, but deters moisture from seeping into the tiles. Over time, grout may become cracked, crumbly or stained beyond repair. It is important to regrout damaged joints at the first sign of deterioration to avoid more extensive damage to the tiles. The good news is that you can regrout ceramic tile in your bathroom yourself, without hiring a professional. By using the proper tools and following the right steps, you can regrout the tile and have it looking like new again. Remove any faucets, shower heads or hardware that may interfere with replacing the grout. Many of these attachments simply twist off or you may need to use a screwdriver to remove the screws securing them. Clean the existing grout prior to doing any work. A commercial grout cleaner or hot, soapy water will do the trick. Scrub the grout with a stiff brush and cleaning solution to remove any dirt and debris. Allow the grout to dry
