Can old houses be renovated to do tile grouting? August 20, 2022

After living in the house for a long time, you will find that the tile gaps have become black, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. These two areas are simply "disaster areas". Now with the tile grout, these problems can be solved.

Many homeowners feel that grouting is done at the time of first decoration and it’s not easy to grout after living for years. In fact, this is not the case. It is also possible to grout the tiles for the old houses. The general time to do the grouting is not too long and basically it can be used after a few days. It will not have too much impact on daily life.

However, there’re some requirements for grouting for the old houses. The width of tile gap should be more than 1mm. If the gap is too small, the grout cannot be caulked into the gap. Even if it is, the service life of the grout is not guaranteed, and the effect of the grout is not obvious. The best width to do the grouting is in between 1.5mm - 2.5mm.

There is another important point for grouting in the old houses, to clear the gap entirely. A lot of dirt has been accumulated in the gap of old houses. If not cleaned entirely, the look of the tile grouting will be affected.

If there is no way to clean up, then you can try electric gap cleaners. Electric machines are more difficult to use. Be careful when you use it.


Other steps to do the tile grouting in old houses are still the same. As long as the above two points are followed, the old house tile grouting can also make the best results.
