Tile Regrouting is the process of removing uninstalled vinyl flooring or tile adhesive from ceramic, porcelain, and concrete tiles that have been damaged by moisture, stains, heat, or moisture. It offers customers in the Atlanta and Marietta areas beautiful new reporting results in a fraction of the time it would take to replace the tile. This is because instead of exposing the tile adhesive to the room temperature type of adhesive, which would be used when the tile was installed, the reporting process occurs after the installation process has been completed. This is accomplished by utilizing a special cold-press construction that “heats up” the adhesive, which is then quickly applied to the tile surface.
One of the most important steps in tile regrouting is to first prepare the tile surfaces for reporting. This can be accomplished by cleaning the tile surfaces using mild dish soap and warm water and then wiping the surfaces down with a clean damp rag, followed by a couple of coats of grout sealer. Any mildew, dirt, or stains can easily be removed by using a scrub brush. Next, one can cut out or chip out any excess tile adhesive from the areas of the tiles where the regrouts are to occur. One can do this by using a chisel or other cutting instrument. After the tile adhesive has been removed and the grout chipped, one can apply a layer of grout sealer (either latex or epoxy) directly to the affected areas, as well as new tiles in those locations.
Many individuals experience the frustrating problem of having to walk on unsightly wet tile, or old grout when they are remodeling a bathroom, etc. In order to avoid having to deal with such an issue in the future, it would be a good idea to check the condition of your old grout and tiles before you begin tile regrouting. By doing so, you will be able to prevent having to replace or repair any part of your bathroom floor, or have to walk on or lay on the wet tile. Also, if you notice a small amount of discoloration, it may be in your best interest to simply clean it, rather than attempting to replace it. Fortunately, most tile regrouting jobs do not necessitate the need to replace the entire tile, although it is always recommended that you replace any damaged tiles to ensure proper mortar formation and installation.
