Thank you guys for fixing my grout mess. I regret deciding to go with a cheaper company for such work. Thank God my friend told me about you. My problem is all fixed now. I recommended you to my parents; they will be contacting you regarding their outdoor area.

Luke Swatson, Blackwood, SA

I needed my huge pool area regrouted. I was worried because I wasn't sure I could afford it. I rang Tile Cleaners for a consultation. The team arrived, had a look and offered me a discount, as the area I wanted to get regrouted was so big. I decided to go ahead straight away. They did a great job. I will definitely book you again to regrout my parents' swimming pool area next month.

I was about to sell my house, but was not happy with the tiles in the dining area. The tiles are white and shiny but the grout looks really dark and dirty. I already had a potential client; however the dark grout ruined the beauty of the room. I didn't have much time to fix the grout and decided to call Tile Cleaners as my real estate agency mentioned them. As my real estate agent said, Tile cleaners responded really quickly. They also pointed out that some of the grout was coming off in the hallway when they were there, which I had not even noticed. Thank you for fixing my problem so quickly. The house is sold now and I left your details with the new owner so they can keep the tiles in good condition.

Tile Regrouting Experts

Tile RegroutingNo matter how beautiful your tile is, if the grout is in bad shape it can make your bathroom look like it belongs in a 1950s motel. Most of the time, killing mildew and resealing the grout will cure the problem. But if the mildew persists or the grout is really shot, or if the grout has succumbed to the ravages of time and moisture, or if the grout is hopelessly stained, crumbling or missing between tiles making it look bad, allowing water, dirt and debris to accumulate and even damage the tile substrate. then it's time to re-grout! Re-grouting is the only way your tiles can look new again when the grout is severely damaged. Another reason to re-grout is to change to a different grout color when grout color sealing is not applicable.

If you have grout that's discolored but otherwise intact, you can often restore it with a grout colorant (Grout Color Sealer). In addition to brightening the grout, it helps seal against water, mold, mildew and stains. Grout colorant doesn't scrub off, and can be used on large areas or for small touch-ups. Grout Colorant is applied after thoroughly cleaning and drying the grout according to the directions on the product.

What is grout?

Grout is a construction material used to embed rebars in masonry walls, connect sections of pre-cast concrete, which fills in the cracks between tiles, keeping them together and preventing damage to the sides of the tiles. Grout is generally composed of a mixture of water, cement, sand, often color tint, and sometimes fine gravel (if it is being used to fill the cores of cement blocks). It is applied as a thick liquid and hardens over time, much like mortar.

Main varieties include urethane, cement-based or epoxy grout. There are a few tools associated with applying and removal of grout such as:

  • Grout saw or grout scraper; a manual tool for removal of old and discolored grout.
  • Grout float; A trowel-like tool for smoothing the surface of a grout line, typically made of rubber or soft plastic.
  • Dremel grout attachment; an attachment guide used in a die grinder for faster removal of old grout than a standard grout saw.
  • Grout sealer is a water based or solvent based sealant applied over dried grout that resists water, oil, and acid-based contaminants.

With time, grout can get dirty, especially the grout used around kitchen and bathroom tiles which are exposed to food, soaps, and lots of water. It is relatively easy to clean tile grout, especially when it is regularly maintained.

What is Re-grouting?

Regrouting is needed to repair damages and joints or when the tile is about to come off or is off. Regrouting may also be required when the grout is so discolored that it's impossible to restore it back to it's original condition just by cleaning. A special chemical is used to do this process with a scrubber or high water pressure to remove all the dirt from the ground.

One of the most common problems we see is cracking and flaking grout around wet areas such as baths, showers, basins, kitchen sinks etc. The problem is, if left and not treated water can soon seep into the cracks and corner joints and work its way into the wooden framing as well as the floor, causing irreparable damage to your home and making it damp and unhealthy. Addressing these problems right from the outset will not only solves the appearance of the grout but may also avoid considerable disruption and escalating repair costs in the future.

Before you replace damaged grout, a little investigation is in order. Cracked or crumbling grout often indicates that the substrate has cracked, shrunk or moved. Discolored or spongy grout may be evidence of a water leak inside a wall or shower pan. Re-grouting the tile without fixing the underlying problem is only a temporary solution.

Once you determine that re-grouting is in order, how you handle it depends on how extensive the job is. If you're just repairing a small area and the existing grout is clean, you can press fresh grout into cracks and voids with your fingers.

If damage is extensive say an entire floor with eroded or badly discolored grout you must remove the old grout. Be forewarned: this can be a difficult job, as the old grout must be completely removed down to the substrate. And if your floor has narrow (1/16 inch) grout lines, you'll need to work carefully or you may chip tiles in the process.

Tile Cleaners ® can also seal the grout with an outdoor or an indoor grout sealer that will help provent your grout to acumilate the black dirt that make your grout look dirty from alot of traffic. This will make it easier to clean and maintain after this process is done.

Grout Maintenance

The best way to clean tile grout is to keep it clean: at least once a year, scrub down the grout, dry it thoroughly and apply a commercial grout sealer to keep liquid out. If the grout begins to crack or crumble, it should be replaced. Damage to grout not only looks unsightly: it can reflect damage to the surface underneath the tiles, or can result in damage to the tiles.

Frequently Asked Questions


The regrouting service offered by Tile Cleaners ® is the process of removing old grout with a specialised mechanical tool that will not affect the tiles. Then, the area is cleaned and a proper new grout will be applied.

Regrouting should be done as soon as you notice the grout getting yellow, looking mouldy, discoloured or the grout is starting to come out. The damaged grout my not look too bad from the outside, but it can be a dangerous situation from behind the tiles. Sometimes grout can be leaking water; this might be due to missing grout or cracked grout. Even tiny holes, or hairline cracks, can cause a major problem.

Once an area has been regrouted, Tile Cleaners ® strongly recommend that the new grout be sealed to prolong the life and the new look of the new grout. The sealer will help protect the grout and make it easier and safer to clean.

Regrouting has many benefits over retiling and may be advised when you have tiles in good condition but the grout is starting to corrode. It will significantly improve the appearance of any tiled area. It will bring back that fresh clean look at an affordable price that suites all budgets. Regrouting is suitable for all tiled areas. Regrouting has the cheaper price and shorter periods of time benefit over retiling and is more environmentally friendly as it saves on carbon emission compared to retiling.

Yes, Tile Cleaners ® can regrout floor and wall tiles.

Cleaning is the process of cleaning the grout with our machines, to ensure the absence of dirt and dust, therefore when we apply the sealer, the grout is clean and there are no barrier layers between the sealer and the grout. The sealer then will be applied, with the help of various Tile Cleaners tools, depending on the condition and setting of your tiles. Regrouting on the other hand is the process of replacing the grout between your tiles, with new grout. Tile Cleaners ® use a mechanical tool to scrub out the old grout. After that is done, then we proceed with cleaning and then reapplying new grout between the tiles. These are two different processes and you might need to clean and seal after you are done with regrouting your tiles.

Tile Cleaners ® can help you regrout most types of tiles.
