Let’s face it – no one likes cleaning the bathroom. It’s a tedious and unpleasant chore for every household – but it is necessary to keep your shower grout in good condition and help to prevent severe damage in the future.
We use grout for a number of reasons. It prevents damage to your tiles, stops water from trickling through to the substrate behind, and of course, it makes your bathroom look polished and fresh! But unfortunately, grout can show signs of wear and tear, and it’s best to take care of it straight away…
Signs You Need To Regrout Your Shower
There is Mould Growth
Once mould shows up – it’s tough to get rid of! Mould can grow as a result of improper ventilation or after a flood. If left long enough, the mould only gets worse, and it’s better to start fresh with entirely new grout.
Grout Begins to Crack
This can be a result of your house slowly moving over time, or a poor grout mixture to begin with. If cracked grout is left alone for too long, water can seep beneath the surface and cause bigger problems.
Bubbling or Peeling Paint
Paint can start to bubble and peel when there is moisture beneath the surface. A common cause of this is a hidden water leak – most likely through the tile and grout joints.
Swollen Skirting Board
Timber skirting boards are prone to swelling when they become damp. Water trickling through the grout and down to the skirting board is the most likely suspect.
Rusty Door Frame
A rusty doorframe is a sign of excess moisture in the area- and it also looks unsightly! If left unattended, it will continue to corrode your door. It is best to check over your grout as soon as you notice rust, as this is the likely culprit.
