re-grouting and resealing bathroom tile

Post by PattiCan » Sun May 06, 2018 10:18 am

What is the best way to remove tile grout in the bathroom. The house was built in the 1950's and is the original grout. Also, what sealer is recommended after re-grouting?

Going with your post in the other thread, try cleaning first. I highly recommend the Steamfast 275, it's a great entry level machine, and you won't believe how well steam cleans grout!

If cleaning with steam doesn't work well enough for you, then removing the grout with a grout saw and installing new will be the way to go. Shannon can recommend a good grout brand/type. What I can tell you is for joints less than 1/8" you use unsanded grout, for joints over 1/8" you use sanded grout.

I use Mapei's Kerapoxy CQ, or QuartzLock 2 urethane grouts. Neither one needs sealing and are both pretty easy to use.
