Spring Cleaning: Make Old Grout Look New!

When purchasing a home you inherit the good, bad and the ugly! Tile and grout throughout the home can often be found on this list.  Whether the grout has faded over time, has darkened due to wear and tear, or simply isn’t the color you wished it be; we have solutions to make old grout look new! Day 7 (on the 7th) of our Spring Cleaning Series is dedicated to making the bad and ugly look great and gorgeous!

Polyblend Grout Renew

Product Description: Grout Renew is a water-based, acrylic, urethane stain and sealer for renewing or changing the color of cement grout joints.

Directions:

1.  Clean the floors thoroughly.  You could spend the better part of the day scrubbing your tile and grout trying to restore its natural color, but why would you when AmeriClean can do it for you?  Have AmeriClean come steam clean your ceramic tile with our powerful hot water cleaning process and special tools to remove the dirt and grime from the tile and grout.

2.  Apply Polyblend Grout Renew.  Using a thin craft brush begin applying the product directly to the grout lines.  Start from the corner of the room and work your way out- let dry for 24 hours.  If any product gets on to your tile, be prepared with a cloth or paper towel to quickly remove from the surface of the tile and clean up your lines.  Once you have completed the project, make sure not to get the area wet for 72 hours.

3.  Have AmeriClean seal the grout.  Our technicians can also seal and protect your grout after the application of the product. This can help extend the life of the grout and helps maintain its appearance for longer than a normal cleaning

Miracle Grout Pen
