What is tile regrouting?
Tile regrouting is a way to repair and maintain tired, loose or stained tiles without having to go through the entire process of refitting an entire floor or wall area. It improves the appearance and stability of your tiles after years of wear and tear and is a quick fix for almost all kinds of tiled areas.
Whether you’re looking to spruce up your laundry, kitchen, bathroom or even a tiled living area, regrouting refreshes the appearance of your tiles for a fraction of the cost of tiling an entire area. You can regrout bathroom walls and kitchen splashbacks as easily as floors.
It’s a fast process that only leaves your tiled area inaccessible for 24 hours, rather than the weeks or days it would take a tradesperson to refit and grout new tiles.
Why should I regrout my bathroom tiles?
There are lots of reasons you may want to regrout your bathroom tiles beyond just improving their appearance and sprucing up your bathroom without having to go ahead with a costly renovation.
Tiles are made to last, however, grout can breakdown and crumble after years of wear and tear to the area. This can make the area dusty or leave tiles loose and more likely to crack.
Bathrooms are a breeding ground for mould and mildew and even the harshest cleaners can struggle to fight these bacterias. If you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly way to reduce the risk of mould, regrouting is the ideal solution. It can even fight termites and other germs that can cause health issues in the young and elderly.
Regrouting the areas that are constantly wet, such as showers, baths and the floor areas closest to them is something you should consider doing even if the rest of your bathroom is in good condition, as these areas are more likely to have hidden grout breakdown beneath the surface.
Finally, it’s a very cost-effective way to make your bathroom look new again and can increase the value of your property if you are looking to sell or rent.

How can I know it’s time to regrout my bathroom tiles?
You can tell your bathroom tiles need regrouting if the area is constantly dusty and dirty, regardless of how much you scrub, as this can mean the grout has begun to breakdown. Loose tiles are also another sign that the grout isn’t holding up like it used to and requires replacing.
If you have a buildup of mildew or mould that persistent cleaning doesn’t fix, you might also want to consider regrouting your tiles as this can fight the bacteria to protect your family from the respiratory issues that mould can cause.
If you’ve noticed a lack of grout in certain areas of your bathroom, particularly near areas that are constantly wet (such as showers or baths), you may also want to consider regrouting your tiled areas to protect and extend the life of your tiles.
