Repairing tile grout is detailed work, that might require hiring a tile repair contractor, but you can do it yourself. You will need a bag of grout and a few basic tools to start. The following steps explain how to repair tile grout in a shower:
- Check the locations and mark where tile repairing is required.
- Apply mildewcide to mildew. Wash the shower with a degreasing cleaner.
- Clean stains and mildew. Allow the shower to dry.
- Remove loose, brittle tile grout from the lines with a grout removal tool.
- Prepare a bucket of fresh grout with water.
- Scoop the grout from the bucket with a small putty knife. Apply a smooth layer to an area where grout was removed, using your finger or a sponge. Wipe away excess grout with a clean, damp cloth.
- Soak a sponge in clean water and ring the water out. Wipe the dirt from the shower with the sponge. Use the sponge to smooth every fresh grout line.
- Allow the shower to dry.
- Pour grout down the center of the grout lines. Soak the grout with sealer and remove excess sealer from surrounding tile with a clean, dry cloth.
10. Apply a second coat of sealer if required and allow it to dry.
11. Make sure you allow the sealer to dry completely before using the shower.
