Want Clean Tile? Then Choose a Quality Grout

July 18, 2011 at 2:03 pm Leave a comment

We get the question, “How should I keep my tile clean?” so often.

And it makes perfect sense to ask of course; if you’re going to remodel and invest in new tile, you want to keep it in the best condition possible.  It’s a great question.

But the answer might surprise you because really, it’s not as much about keeping your tile clean…  It’s waaaay more important to keep your grout surface clean!

Your tile might get a little soap residue on it, but that can be wiped away.  What’s more difficult is trying to fight back scum, mold and mildew in your grout lines.

In the case of grout, preventing mold and mildew is your best bet.  We’ve given the full run-down about all grout options possible previously on our blog, so you know we highly recommend top-of-the-line grouts like our StarGlass Urethane Grout over all other options. We stand by the claim that this product really is the best of the best.

StarGlass Grout is a one of a kind product: It’s made from recycled glass dust, pre-mixed and stored in a resealable container. It’s waterproof and stainproof formula won’t crack or break over time, and it has a gorgeous translucent glow.

StarGlass is composed of post-consumer recycled glass and it emits little to no VOCs.  StarGlass’s long lasting and easy-to-use formula provides unmatched stain resistance, ultimate color consistency, crack resistant flexibility, mold/mildew protection and UV stability.

These features and benefits are sure to minimize life cycle costs and provide a translucent, three-dimensional, reflective appearance that you can enjoy for years to come.

So if you are embarking on your remodel and going to use tile for the job, please keep our grouting tips in mind!  Any questions?  Feel free to post a comment! =)
