The bathroom ceramic tile is a durable material that can withstand weathering. However, ceramic tiles still wear out over time and once this happens, applying grout on the bathroom tiles usually fixes the problem. Grout is a type of plaster that fills the cracks between the tiles. Here are the materials and steps on how to grout bathroom ceramic tiles.
- Grout float
- Tile sealer
- Drill mixer
- Applicator stick
Step 1 Mixing the Grout
Mix the grout with water according to the instruction of the manufacturer. Mix the grout using a drill mixer until you achieve a thick consistency.
Step 2 – Grout Application
Apply the grout using an applicator stick or a trowel. Smooth out the grout using a grout float. The grout float can also be used to spread the grout mixture evenly. Apply the grout in an upward manner. Once the grout has been applied, let it dry for 30 minutes.
Step 4 – Cleaning the Grout Smear
Remove the residue using a wet sponge. Use the sponge to wipe away the remaining residue that adhered on the tiles’ surface. Let the grout cure for 72 hours or 3 days.
Step 5 – Sealant Application
Apply the sealant to the grout lines for added protection. Let the sealant dry for 24 hours before stepping on the tiles.
