Restore the tiled areas of your home to their former glory

Keeping your grouting looking great isn’t easy. But you shouldn’t let bad grout come between you and loving the tiled areas of your home. From cleaning tile and grout, recolouring old grout, replacing damaged grout, replacing mouldy silicone, to complete shower and bathroom overhauls, GroutPro is here to help. We use the very latest in cleaning and restoration technology to bring your tiled areas back to their original beauty, and protect them for years to come. We also have solutions to protect new grout so it looks newer for longer.

Professional Tile & Grout Cleaning

Most people don’t realise that without proper protection and periodic maintenance, tiled surfaces very quickly become dirty, damaged or mouldy. Most tilers aren’t interested in maintenance. Most commercial cleaning companies don’t have the specialist cleaners, sealers or equipment to carry out tile and grouting care and repair. But GroutPro specialises in restoring tile and grout surfaces to their original beauty. We use specialised deep cleaning solutions and high pressure water to clean all surfaces whether inside or out. We then use suction on these surfaces to remove chemical residue and make sure it doesn’t attract more dirt. We can tackle even the dirtiest surfaces. Efflorescence, hard water deposits, rust stains, grout haze, mould and mildew, calcium build-up, we can deal with them all. And we recommend carrying out a periodic deep clean for all your domestic or commercial tiled floors.

Grout Recolouring, Sealing, and Replacement

Grout Coloursealing is GroutPro’s unique flagship service. It’s specifically designed and developed to bring your dirty old grout back to life and make it look brand new again! Grout is porous and has to be sealed following installation to prevent moisture soaking in. Unfortunately, tilers rarely do this. So over time, the grout becomes stained by cleaning products, spills and general wear and tear. It’s incredibly difficult to remove the staining through cleaning alone. That’s why Colourseal recolours the grout and seals it in a single step. We have 89 different colours to choose from and we can even custom mix or colour match. When we’re done, your grout will look completely rejuvenated and revitalized, and will be stainproof to boot.

If your grout is in poor condition there may be no choice other than to repair or replace it. Regrouting is our bread and butter and we use the right techniques and products for each job, including recommending sealing brand new grout to protect it.
For wet areas such as showers and outdoors, Epoxy grout has become the industry’s recommended product GroutPro has been trained to be specialists in its use.

Damaged Tile Repairs

Tiles can become loose, chipped or cracked and GroutPro has a number of methods to repair or disguise damage.  In the event that some tiles are beyond saving, (it does happen) we can remove and replace individual tiles without damaging the surrounding ones. We’ve got plenty of experience repairing large tiled surfaces with significant damage. So no job is too big (or too small) for us.

The first question we will ask though is “Do you have any spare tiles?”

Silicone Removal and Replacement

Silicone is applied to the joint between the floor and the walls, around your bath, shower, basins and kitchen sink to give a flexible waterproof seal. It helps protect your home against water damage. But only if it’s done right. Applying silicone requires training and practice so it’s a job we take very seriously. In fact, we specialise in silicone installation and the removal and replacement of old silicone. Our products are designed for wet areas, come in a range of colours and are all environmentally friendly.

Showerdome Installation

We think the Showerdome is a genius invention and we are a nationwide preferred installer of them. It cuts down on steam, mould and mildew in your bathroom and means you are less likely to need an extractor fan to get rid of moisture.  You won’t need the water temperature to be so hot, and you’ll enjoy a clearer mirror when you step out of your (warmer) shower. Showerdomes are made in New Zealand and there are a range of shapes and sizes to suit most existing and new shower cubicles.

While Showerdomes are perfect for acrylic showers, GroutPro doesn’t recommend installing them above tiled showers because they don’t allow moisture to escape the enclosure, which increases the chance of mould growth in the grout and silicone. Tiled showers need to have the moisture removed from the environment using an efficient extractor fan.

Shower glass Restoration

You’ve probably tried every off-the-shelf product that promises to clean your shower glass. But, like most people, you’re also probably less than satisfied with the results. The hard water staining and spots is caused by mineral deposits in the water and can be really difficult to remove?

GroutPro’s professional glass restoration process gently removes all the staining from your glass to a near new finish. We use an environmentally friendly and family safe product to remove calcium hard water staining. It’s non-corrosive and contains no acids, solvents or harsh abrasives. Once it’s clean, we can coat the glass with a professional anti-stick protective coating called Enduroshield that wil keep your glass looking great for years.

We’ll have your shower glass looking like it’s just rolled off the factory line – and at a fraction of the cost of replacing it.

Total Shower Refurbishment

If it’s total transformation you want, we can do that too. While they look fantastic when new, tiled showers are the perfect environment for bacteria and mould growth. Has your grout turned a pinky orange colour? That’s bacteria. Has your silicone turned black? That’s mould. The reality is that tiled showers require periodic refurbishment. And that’s exactly what we do. Using all the techniques listed above, we’ll restore your shower to its former glory. In fact, we’ll have it looking better than the day it was installed.

FAQ

  • What should I clean my grout with?

    Unless your grout has been sealed properly there is nothing that will keep it clean. Many people resort to bleach or even acids to try and remove stains which will, in fact, damage the grout. GroutPro specialises in sealing the grout so that mild eco-friendly cleaners are all that is needed to keep it looking in tip top condition. If your grout is already stained we can recolour it and seal it with our Colourseal sealer.

  • How long does silicone stay mould free in a shower?

    There is no easy answer to this question as it comes down to your daily maintenance process. Moisture, heat, and soap residue are what mould thrives on, so in order to minimise growth we recommend ensuring a good extractor fan is used during showering, and that you wipe your shower dry after each. This removes the conditions that mould needs to grow.
    We have found that silicone in a shower typically requires replacement every couple of years.

  • What kind of grout is best for a wet area such as a shower?

    Epoxy grout is recommended in wet areas as it is waterproof and much more resistant to staining. We regrout shower bases with Epoxy to provide the longest lasting solution. Grout on shower walls can be protected using our Colourseal grout sealer, which provides similar protection to Epoxy grout.

  • Can you fix a broken tile?

    This really depends on the extent of the damage. Small chips and cracks can be disguised so they are much less noticeable, but larger damage requires us to replace the tile.

  • Why can’t I get the water marks off my shower glass?

    Water spotting is caused my minerals such as calcium, lime, and iron in the water supply fusing to the microscopic pores of the glass. This happens when the water droplets are left on the glass after showering – the water evaporates leaving the minerals. Over time these minerals block the clarity of the glass. Specialist abrasive products (and a lot of elbow grease) are required to remove these minerals without damaging the glass. In most cases we can restore 80%-90% of the clarity, but occasionally the glass is unable to be restored.
    The best way to minimise water marks is to dry the glass after each use.
