Useful Tips For Removing And Replacing Tile Grout
If you have noticed your tile grout has become loose, broken, or cracked,
it might be time to remove and replace it. However, don’t worry, because it is simple and easy to do.
First, figure out which grout needs to be removed and what can stay. Any type of tool with a thin blade can be effective, such as a screwdriver or a utility knife.
Remember to wear safety glasses, and having a vacuum cleaner and garbage bags on hand will make keeping things clean a lot easier.
Work carefully along each grout line to avoid chipping the edges of the tiles. As you work into the corners, you may need a smaller tool to gently remove tougher spots of grout.
When the grout begins to come off, put the bigger chunks right into the trash bag and use your vacuum to pick up the smaller pieces to keep your workspace clean.
You can choose from cement-based, epoxy, or urethane grout. The first option is well-liked and affordable, whereas the last two are durable and waterproof but can be expensive.
You'll need at least three buckets, closed-cell sponges, and a cloth. You'll also need a rubber grout float and a tarp to keep things clean and give you a place to mix the grout.
For applying the grout, do a little at a time — patience is key. Make sure that the grout goes all the way into the joints by forcing it in with the float.
Most important, remove any extra grout from the tiles' surface as you go. It's difficult to remove after more than 30 minutes, leaving behind unappealing, hazy-looking tiles.
