do-it-yourself : no re-grouts if you shower tiles in care

by:Kastar     2020-06-12
The tile is a beautiful and durable material that is especially popular in the bathtub and shower room.
It is so popular that it often provides alternative surface materials in a style that imitates the appearance of real things.
* Tiles are not maintenance, however-free.
You have two simple options when the problem comes up.
You can fix them now for a few dollars or you can fix them later ---
Hundreds more.
Once the water penetrates into the tile grouting, the damage to the wall can be serious.
The problem almost always starts with the damaged grouting joint for two reasons.
In today\'s housing market, one job needs to be done quickly by installers.
The problem is that there are two obstacles to tile work to resist speed.
First, the curing of ceramic tile paste is too slow, and second, the curing of cement paste is too fast.
The frankincense used to stick the tiles to the wall will solidify in one day, but it will take longer to solidify.
If the space grouting between the tiles is too fast, the gas that must be discharged during curing will create tiny fine holes in the grouting.
As for grouting, the best method is wet curing, in which the normal drying speed is prolonged.
When cured correctly, the mud becomes hard and waterproof.
If it is allowed to dry too fast, the grout will have a soft, powdery white surface to absorb the water.
Mud expands, breaks and falls off when water is absorbed.
In both cases, the water reaches the dry wall behind the tile and destroys it.
How do you know when your tiles need help?
First, look for discoloration in the mud.
The black spots in the grouting indicate that the water is penetrating due to the opening of the small hole or the looseness of the grouting.
When water penetrates through these gaps, the mold grows in it, maintains more water, and further weakens the mud in these areas.
Where the mineral content is high, the black point will be surrounded by lighter yellow
Orange color change.
Of course, if a small piece of mud has fallen off, you don\'t have much time to waste.
You should also double check the caulking seams of the corners and the places where the tiles meet the bathtub.
If you find a place where there is a dark color change or crack, it should be repaired.
You can re-grout and re-
Caulk, you have to have the tiles ready.
Use a carpet knife to remove any loose or degraded mud and caulking agent.
Dig a few inches of grouting on both sides of the discoloration and dig the extended opening where the grouting may have fallen off.
Remove caulking agents for discoloration and cracking with a sharp knife or razortype scraper.
Simply cut along each edge of the caulking seam.
This way you can loosen the cauldron so you can pull it into strips.
After removing the damaged mud and caulking agent, clean the whole surface thoroughly so that the new mud, caulking agent and sealant can adhere correctly.
Any tub and tile cleaner on the market works.
If you prefer home therapy, try using half a cup of home ammonia, half a cup of white vinegar and a cup --
A glass of baking soda.
Scrub persistent stains with a toothbrush and tile cleaner or diluted household bleach.
Rinse, let dry, wipe any detergent residue with a dry cloth.
