We want your newly grouted and sealed area to look as good as it does now in the coming months and years, so here are some tips to keep it looking like ‘new’.

It is important to follow these aftercare instructions to ensure that the grout and sealant have time to properly cure and set:

  • Wait 24 hours before using the shower: This will allow the grout and sealant to dry and set completely.
  • Keep the shower as dry as possible: Try to limit the amount of moisture in the shower area for the first few days after the work has been done. You can do this by wiping down the walls and floor with a dry towel after each use.
  • Avoid using harsh cleaners: Stay away from abrasive or acidic cleaners that can damage the grout and sealant. Instead, use a mild cleaner and a soft- bristled brush to clean your shower.
  • Regularly inspect the grout and sealant: Keep an eye on the grout and sealant to ensure that they are still intact and in good condition. If you notice any cracks or gaps, contact us to have repairs done as soon as possible. By following these aftercare instructions, you can help ensure that the grout and sealant in your shower stays in good condition for years to come.

Keeping and Caring for Grout in your Bathroom

Fresh grout looks beautiful, but without proper cleaning and maintenance, it can become stained, mouldy and even cracked.

  • Clean regularly: Regular cleaning of grout can help prevent the build-up of soap scum, mildew, and other stains. Use a non-abrasive cleaner and a soft- bristled brush to scrub the grout.
  • Seal the grout: Applying a grout sealer can help protect it from moisture and stains.
  • Use vinegar and baking soda: A mixture of vinegar and baking soda can be used to clean grout. Apply the mixture to the grout and let it sit for a few minutes before gently scrubbing.
  • Avoid harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals can damage grout and cause discolouration. Use only mild cleaners and avoid using abrasives.
  • Don’t let water sit: Water sitting in the grout can cause mould and mildew growth. Always keep your shower dry and bathroom well ventilated.
  • Use a squeegee: After showering or bathing, use a squeegee to remove excess water from the wall tile and grout, then dry the base. This can help prevent water stains and mould growth.

How to keep Mould away…

  • Poor ventilation: If your bathroom doesn’t have proper ventilation or a window, this can lead to moisture building up, which can cause mould growth.
  • High humidity: Bathrooms are naturally humid places due to the presence of water. However, if it’s too humid, it can create an ideal environment for mould growth.
  • Leaking pipes: Leaky pipes in your bathroom can contribute to moisture build-up, which leads to mould growth.
  • Inadequate cleaning: Regular cleaning is essential to prevent mould growth in your bathroom. If you neglect to clean your bathroom regularly, mould can accumulate over time.
  • Poor drainage: If your bathroom’s drainage system is inadequate, water can pool in certain areas, which can promote mould growth and deteriorate grout and silicone.
