Remove And Replace The Grout
Over the years, your shower is used everyday by all occupants in the home.
That is a lot of hours of wear and tear. With years of constant use, your shower and bathroom grout will start to get a build up of mould, and general scum. Grout is porous and the more you clean and scrub it, you actually weaken it and this is when mould can get a foot hold within the grout. The vicious cycle is then started – the more you clean and scrub, the weaker your grout becomes. The more the grout breaks down the more uneven it looks and it starts to pit and crack, which appears as dirty areas. This starts to further break down the grout which is the first line of defense from water leaking behind the tiles and through the waterproofing membrane.

What Is Grout
Traditionally grout is a mixed paste of water, cement, sand, coloured clay and fine gravel and it is a form of cement. This is why it will start to chip and crumble over time.
Regrouting involves removing broken or cracked grout from the joint between tiles.
Leaking Showers Sealed can professionally regrout the joints if the grout between your marble tiles is discoloured or greasy, or perhaps remove marble, loosened or even missing in places.
Most people, when they see broken and ugly tiles or a leaky shower, they think or say that “the old tile or shower needs to be replaced”. However, regrouting is a far better option than that.
