Huge Job For Melbourne Airport

Posted on Oct 30, 2018 in Blog

When Melbourne Airport had problems with the floors in one of their commercial kitchens they turned to GroutPro. With the entire floor of a large commercial kitchen to be restored in one of the busiest buildings in the country, a very tight time-frame was given to complete the work so that the restaurant could get back to business. GroutPro Werribee joined forces with two other GroutPro specialists to attack the problem at full speed over a marathon 30 hours without a break. Old damaged grout was removed from the entire floor and new epoxy grout was installed to ensure...

Epoxy Grouting in Commercial Buildings

Posted on Jun 22, 2018 in Blog

A scheduling crunch on the construction of a new Porsche automotive showroom and servicing facility in Melbourne was one case where GroutPro’s considerable resources came to the rescue on an epoxy grout job. Here’s what happened: A tiling company originally hired to lay tiles and install grout were struggling with their work load and lack of expertise with installing epoxy grout. Typically, tilers have a loathing for installing epoxy grout as it is more difficult and time consuming than cement-based grout, especially on this type of small textured tiles so to ensure the construction schedule was not disrupted, GroutPro...

9 Ways to Prevent Mould and Mildew in Your Bathroom

Posted on Apr 14, 2016 in Blog

Many people believe that mould is inevitable in bathrooms. The good news is that with the right preventative measures it needn’t be. As you may know, mould or mildew is a kind of fungi which is common in homes around the world, particularly moist areas. It usually spreads through airborne spores and can form colonies in conditions which are favourable for its growth. As mould usually grows in damp and dark spaces, bathrooms and showers are where you’ll most often find it. Small amounts of mould are generally harmless, however, once it builds up, it can cause serious health...

Replacing Grout in Commercial Kitchens

Posted on Oct 8, 2014 in Blog, Damaged Tiles, Tile Cleaning, Tile Replacement

The Challenge with Commercial Tiles Tiles in commercial kitchens, restaurants or cafés go through a lot.  Not only the constant foot traffic of customers coming and going at all hours of the day or night, or chefs constantly on the move in the kitchen, but also the stains and wears that come from spills and cleaning.  Most tiles are laid with conventional cement and sand based grout, and while this may provide the cheap and easy alternative, conventional sanded grout is very porous which allows it to absorb both solids and liquids very easily causing staining, but also providing...

Are You Looking To Restore The Glass In Your Bathroom?

Have you started noticing small white stains in your glass that you can’t seem scrub out? It’s a very common issue with bathroom glass stains.

Cleaning and Restoring Slate Tiles

Posted on Aug 22, 2014 in Blog, Dirty Grout, Grout Cleaning, Grout Recolouring, Maintenance, Sealing, Slate Cleaning, Tile Cleaning

Restoring Slate Tiles To Their Original Glory Cleaning and Resealing Slate Tiles by GroutPro Slate tiles look fantastic as a floor tile however it’s important to seal the surface of slate tiles because being a natural material it is porous. This means dirt and grime will penetrate into the surface which can’t be removed without specialised cleaning equipment. Normal mopping, steam mops and supermarket cleaning products are just not able to remove it. Assuming your tiler did seal your slate after laying it, the sealer chosen could range from the cheap DIY products available at hardware stores, or it could...

GroutPro’s Maintenance Products

Maintenance Products With the growth of the home renovation industry, as well as the popularity of ceramic tiles and natural stone as a floor choice, it is important that homeowners protect their investment. Some readily available supermarket products are highly acidic and corrosive with the ability to eat into your tiles and grout, which can lead to irreparable damage. Below is a photo of one of our recent customer’s bathroom – she had been using an acidic product with a pH of 0.5 that she had purchased from her local supermarket. The product is highly dangerous to use and...

Posted on Jul 18, 2014 in Blog, Stone and Quarry, Tile Repair, Travertine

Problems with “Hard-wearing” Travertine Stone Tiles? We all know how hard wearing and durable floor tiles are, especially real stone tiles – or are they? Recently Wayne and his Balcatta team visited a home where the Travertine stone tiles had been extensively damaged, were cracked through the centre of the tile and chipping away from no apparent reason. Travertine stone is a type of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs.  Being a soft stone it is easily damaged with both normal traffic as well as accidental incidents. High heel shoes put a lot of pressure on small...

Tile Repair – Are Your Tiles Hollow, Cracked or Loose?

Posted on Jun 24, 2014 in Blog, Damaged Tiles, Dirty Grout, Tile Cleaning, Tile Repair, Tile Replacement

Need Loose, Cracked Tile Repair? GroutPro can help…. Have you ever walked across a tiled floor to hear them sounding ‘hollow’? Hollow meaning that certain areas of the tiles sound and feel loose underfoot. These are areas in which the bottom of the tile is not in contact with the underlying substrate. Unfortunately this is a regular occurrence in older properties where the tiles may have been laid with the original slab and the substrate or adhesive has deteriorated over time. The hollow sound may be a result of ‘spot-bonding’ during the installation. ‘Spot bonding’ is when the installer...
